Freech 0.9.14 Is Out!
In what might be the biggest release of this week (so far), I am proud to announce an updated piece of software on which I have been working for a long time. Freech (which was formerly known as Tefinch, and Ammerum before that) is a threaded discussion forum for PHP5/MySQL5.
This new release comes with a shitload of new features:
Freech supports user accounts and groups. It currently provides a fixed number of four groups: Administrators, Moderators, normal users and anonymous users).
The user registration is fully automated, and users need to confirm their email address before activating an account.
A powerful new search feature was added:
There is a completely new administration interface: Administrators may edit users and manage groups, and moderators may lock messages in the forum.
Users may now also create polls:
Several “special pages” were added, such as a list showing the number of postings per user, and a statistics feature.
Freech also has a “sticky” feature, allowing moderators to pin a message to the top of the forum. There are many more features, and generally, Freech is a lot more polished than it used to be. Most of the features are plugins, so all most features can be easily disabled. On top of it all, the performance was also drastically improved, even when all new plugins are enabled.
