Announce: Freech 0.9.18
The last release of Freech is only two weeks ago, but there have been such a huge number of improvements that already here is the followup. Some of the new features include:
Multi-forum support and a completely new front page (that may optionally be skipped if you are using only one single forum):
The design of the forum has been simplified and optimized for smaller screen resolutions. A lot of detail has been put into making the looks of different forum pages more consistent, leaving a much cleaner overall impression. In addition, all pages are now XHTML1.0 (strict) compliant.
Many other details were polished: Line wrapping in postings works even better, “breadcrumbs” (the path pointing to the current page) are shown on every page, video links are optionally embedded into posting, and a lot more.
A lot of work went into improving the administration features. Activities of moderators are logged on a dedicated page, and moderators may now lock/unlock other users. Spam handling and detection was greatly improved.
The forum renders a lot faster by allowing the browser to cache more pages. As usual, a large number of bug fixes is also included in the release.
Special thanks to Mario Deck for doing a lot of the work to make the forum XHTML1.0 strict compliant.
