Mobile friendly site design - This was one of the highest ranked feature request from our site survey in December, but we've been working on this for quite a long time. All pages now have adaptable screen widths, and will make reading much easier on mobile devices.
Notifications - Certain actions done by users on the forum will generate notifications to affected users. For instance, users can be notified when they are quoted in a post. There are multiple notification methods, including board notification and email notification.
Gravatar - Avatars may now be fetched from the Gravatar service, in addition to the previously available options. If you wish to use a Gravatar, please update your profile accordingly.
Better Timezone handling - After selecting a timezone in the user control panel, daylight saving time adjusts automatically.
Increased Maximum Subject Length - The maximum length of topic titles is now 120 characters.
Redesigned rating system - The post rating system has been modified to make it more obvious how to use voting. A free input reason is not required to create a negative rating on a post, while moderators have been given better tools to monitor and remove inappropriate ratings.
Twitter and Facebook profile fields - New profile fields were added.
More to come
Login with Google - Rather than enter you details manually and login for f1technical only, you can login with your Google account, removing the need to remember your password or f1technical username
Promoted posts - No ready for the initial release, work is going on to allow us to promote hand-picked posts and threads to the site's homepage, highlighting what's interesting for new or casual visitors.
Using your feedback - While our site survey came too late to use and analyse thoroughly ahead of this update, the results are kept close and will be used in due course. People who have asked to become involved will be contacted.
