vBulletin 4.1.4 Upgrade Coming

We will shortly be cutting over to vBulletin 4.1.4 from the current 4.1.0. We have had an uncommonly long wait between updates for a variety of reasons – 4.1.1 and 4.1.2 were skipped due to regressions that would have impacted users. Schedule and other issues delayed timing on 4.1.3 enough for us to wait for 4.1.4.

There are a number of updates:

  • A new WYSIWIG editor
    • Same editor in all site areas.
    • Much richer editing and formatting support including tables.
    • Auto-Save !!
    • Should fix the single quote cut-n-paste issue.
    • Much richer browser support.
    • Better behavior overall.
    • Table support !!
  • A new mobile theme that is particularly friendly to WebKit (iOS, Droid and WebOS devices) browsers.
  • Stronger social networking integration including like buttons.
  • Lots of bug fixes.
    • General update to the YUI framework used – especially helps IE9 users.
  • Several query and other backend performance improvements.

I’ve embedded a short video at the end on the new editor to give some basic background for those that are interested as well. Thanks all…

Thank you for adding to the resources available for your Fellow BAC Members.
