XenForo 2.2.5 and Importers 1.5.0 Released

XenForo 2.2.5 is now available for all licensed customers to download. We strongly recommend that all customers running previous versions of XenForo 2.2 upgrade to this release to benefit from increased stability.

This release changes the default CAPTCHA method from reCAPTCHA to hCaptcha. If you were using the default CAPTCHA settings, you will automatically be switched over to hCaptcha. If you provided your own reCAPTCHA keys or chose a different CAPTCHA method, your existing CAPTCHA settings will be retained. If you are unable to upgrade to this release, you may need to change CAPTCHA settings to avoid disruption. Please see our separate CAPTCHA changes announcement.
