I hope everyone is well. We've been helping lots of our customers upgrade their existing InstantForum.NET installations to the latest 2012 update since it's release late December. So far your feedback has been very positive.
However as with all software we have discovered some minor bugs since the 2012 release. To resolve these I'm delighted to announce our InstantForum.NET 2012-1 update is now available for download. This is a maintenance update to resolve the bugs we've discovered since the initial 2012 release.
To learn more about the updates and how to upgrade please see the following article…
Our 2012-1 update is available free of charge to all existing InstantForum.NET 2012 customers and will automatically be available from your Licenses page within your My.InstantASP account.
We have not introduced any major new functionality with this release as we wanted to focus on reducing the bug count. Once we are confident our 2012 release is as robust as possible we'll have a more substantial feature update. We have a number of exciting improvements & ideas on our road-map but want to first ensure 2012 is a high quality release.
We hope you enjoy the 2012-1 update and would suggest upgrading if you've countered any of the problems below. We've also introduced improved right to left layout support in this update for Arabic customers.
