After creating a v7.5.9 release to provide to The Powers That Be on our ability to push out releases to the UBB.Threads platform we've taken ahead and upgrades ourselves here after Brooks pushed it out at UBB.Central.

You can expect to see this in the Member Area soon, a full document of changes can be found at the UBB.Wiki entry UBB.Threads v7.5.9 Changelog.

There's been some updates where it was easier to move the modifications to the new files. It sounds like a lot of the updates were stripping trailing spaces, converting spaces to tabs, etc. Unless you're very familiar with your own changes, it's going to be difficult to update to this one using any simple file compare - most lines will trigger differences.

Allen, you're absolutely correct in this, and your suggested procedure of moving your site's custom modifications into the 7.5.9 release, rather than the other way around.

To help you do-it-yourselfers out, I'll have a quick BeyondCompare tutorial up in a few hours for doing just that.

---

In this 7.5.9 release of UBB.threads -- if coming from 7.5.8-r2 -- every directory is mostly "modular."
/languages/english files can be be installed without affecting anything.
Also, /templates/default are independent of everything.
/admin doesnt require any additional dependencies, nor do the files within /libs or /scripts.

IIRC, everything updated in 7.5.9 should be modular. That's your pro-tip for today.

The feature list for the next release of UBB.threads will most likely have changes that will be dependent upon other files. UBB.threads 7.5.9 lays down a foundation for those things.

Thank you guys for the updates on the product - we had discussed doing the 'trailing spaces/tabs' thing years back on the beta forum but it never made it into the final product. Looking forward to what you are working on in the next version.

Well I Know all the discussion went away for v8.
But the steering committee forum at ubbcentral has a lot of suggestions that are more current to the v7 series than probably the beta forums .
Also I found that the last two oldest topics on that forum have some v8 enhancement discussion.

In fact I just added him to the group.
So Iassc you should be able to view it now.
