Just wanted to let you know about what we've been working on lately:
- I previously announced that we have video support in Etano in the form of "My Videos" - a feature like the existing "My Photos". Well, we've now added support for videos in comments and blog posts. We've created a new bbcode button which you can use to enter the video sharing code. I know some of you want this feature.
- View the IP addresses used by members in their profile (in admin).
- Alertpay integration is complete, we just need to test it a bit and we'll release it.
- Unified cache system. There's only one cache folder now, independent of the skins. We had a cache folder in the root folder and then a cache folder for each skin. It was difficult to manage and not very scalable. Now, for those concerned with speed and optimization you can keep the cache folder on a separate disk or even separate server.
- banned words 2.0 - that's an addon which allows the use of regular expressions in banned words, allowing you a much finer control over what members are allowed to write. Someone will be very happy for this one.
- user rating support for anything, not just photos. This opens the road to games like "hot or not" and the likes.
- better support for opcode cache applications.
- support for image watermark (stamping user photos with another image/logo) with transparency support. Until now we supported only text watermarks.
