Hi All. I'm super excited today to announce the official release of our InstantForum 2017 update.
As you would expect InstantForum 2017 boosts dozens of highly requested features. These include new split, merge & soft delete options for moderators, the ability for users to @mention other users, GitHub support for developers to name just a few.
We've also made hundreds of improvements for this update both in terms of UI and code. Our goal has been to hopefully ensure InstantForum 2017 is our highest quality release to date both for end users interacting with the forums & developers working with our code.
For a complete list of all the new features and improvements included within InstantForum 2017 please see our InstantForum 2017 Release Notes. You can of course also try InstantForum 2017 via our online demo.
With our focus on quality and addressing as many reported issues as possible our InstantForum 2017 update has inevitability taken some time.
