Gossamer Forum 1.1.2 Released!

We've released Gossamer Forum 1.1.2! Major changes include:
  • Searchable member directory - You can now display a list of users sorting by various fields. The member directory is also searchable. You can view this from Who's Online.
  • Custom guest posting usernames - When a guest posts, they now have an option to enter their own custom username. The guest username (such as "Anonymous" or "Guest") will still show up as the latest poster, however when viewing the post, you will see the username the guest entered.
  • Watched threads - Gossamer Forum now has the ability to allow users to "watch" threads. When a watched thread is posted to, the thread's watchers are notified by e-mail. Click "Watch Thread" when viewing a thread, or click the new icon on the profile page to view threads you are currently watching.
  • Template optimizations - Excessively complex sections of template code has been moved out of the templates, however flexibility has been preserved through the use of function call parameters (and old templates will still work).
  • Ikonboard import - Gossamer Forum can now import from ikonboard forums!
  • Attachments viewable - Attachments that can be viewed in the browser (such as text files, HTML files, images, etc. will be viewed directly. If you wish to save the attachments, you can still use "Save Target As..."
  • E-Mail bans - E-mail bans can now be set to prevent users with certain e-mail accounts from signing up. Wildcard characters "*" and "?" are supported.
  • Advanced markup - New advanced markup options allow you to add more complex markup tags easily and quickly.
  • Many other bug fixes and small improvements have been made.

You can download it from http://gossamer-threads.com/scripts/gforum/download.htm or grab the new Windows Installer (but don't use it to update a live site) at http://gossamer-threads.com/scripts/source/gforum.exe.
