    Hey, guys!

    The version will be first to have an available MojoPortal module which will be published in a two weeks scope. Due to some incompatibilities in licenses it'll be published as a source code and as a separate project.

    MySQL Data Layer will be available too as my personal project in the nearest time, there will be some special announcements. The data layer should be fully upgradable from the versions I was making for YAF perviously. All the further support for the MySQL code is in the community hands :-d .

    MojoPortal module on the other hand will be supported for some time untill we'll solve all possible problems.with the new soft.
    Thanks for this great forum software guys! Awesome job! 👍
    Updated my forum last night (http://forum.scenariopaintballteam.com). Other than the server not realizing .net 4 was actually already installed it was a pretty painless upgrade. So far, we're diggin it. If we come across any issues along the way would you prefer them here or in another thread?

    Awesome job, as always, guys! 😮

    Post them in a new topic, so we can better keep track of all issues.

    Put a few over in the Issue and Bug section . Overall, this seems to be a really kickarse release!
    Nice one with the .Net 4.0 framework.
    Any prediction when there will be a final 1.9.6 release?

    Heads up for folks updating. I moved to a new host which has .NET 2.0 and 4.0 installed and decided to load the beta. I was getting the following error when attempting to update host settings from the admin page: A potentially dangerous Request.Form value was detected from the client

    I found the fix here , all I had to do was add the following code to the web.config file within the system.web tags:

    <httpRuntime requestValidationMode="2.0" />

    Now works great! thanks for the hard work!
