We have a major update from @Lukas W. And co as well as some performance improvements from @Xon. (For which we are all very grateful for his expertise!!)
Imo it is ready to be moved out of beta pending you all's feedback. We closed nearly 1000 issues.
Pending the go ahead from some people we will publish the update.
Still free and likely to stay that way, just no guarantee of one on one support under a free license.
Is there a plan for a paid option with support?
Right now, I have brand new threads with no views or replies being promoted as "hot" topics. Not really understanding that or anything regarding what makes a thread "hot". For now, I am moving the default page back to threads, and possibly just hiding the hot feature because it seems to make no sense to me or my members.
If it's going to simply be a free, no support product, I'm a bit concerned about the development of it. Forums have become way too boring, and I think this product has a chance to really change things.
