Upgrade went smoothly AFAICT, I haven't noticed any problems and people have been posting so it's not broken.

The gallery features are waiting for the "proper path" to a server program and to be enabled; so they wont be apparent immediately.

As for changes, theres lots of 'em, but you've got to pay close attention to notice then wink... Can't have too much of a change, might frighten the natives!

to add pics, go to that forum, then hit NEW IMAGE , then its the same as a regular post but click the link near the bottom that says Image Manager and that brings up the upload box. click add file to add the pictures you want to add, it takes a minute to upload the file after you hit ADD FILE. then click DONE ADDING FILES when you have added three files.

there is currently a 2mb limit on the three pics that can be uploaded to each thread, both those settings can be tweaked if we decide its necessary
