The release of XenForo 1.1 today sees the completion of this round of feature development. The improvements, extensions and additions to XenForo in version 1.1 have been extensively tested both privately and publicly, and we are now ready to recommend that all customers upgrade their production websites to XenForo 1.1.0.
Installation and Upgrade Instructions
Full details for how to install and upgrade XenForo can be found in the XenForo Manual. We always recommend that you back-up your forum before attempting an upgrade.
Amongst the new XenForo 1.1 features are the following:
- Criteria-Driven Notices
- Custom User Profile Fields
- Thread Prefixes
- Daily Statistics
- User Warnings
- Smilies and UI Graphics as Sprites
- Admin Control Panel Search
- BB Code Media Site Improvements
- Attachment System Improvements
- Criteria-Driven User Group Promotions
- User Ignore System
- Admin and Moderator Action Logging
- Ability to Search Within Threads
- Can View Thread Content and Can View Others' Threads Permissions
- Right-to-left language (such as Arabic) support
Also new with XenForo 1.1 are importers for Invision Power Board 3.2, and phpBB 3. These are available immediately within the Import External Data section of the XenForo Admin Control Panel.
Development won't stop here. We already have plans for a range of new features in XenForo 1.2 and beyond.
Our attention will also return to the Big Board Search Solution and Resource Manager that we mentioned in our development update back in May.
Once again, we would like to thank all our customers and friends for their support. We will continue to do our best for you.
