Our discussion forums, based on the open-source Discourse software, got a quiet update today — we moved from version 1.5 to 1.6.

A big thanks to John for quietly, quickly, and successfully making this happen earlier today!

The major changes can be found at the Discourse project’s blog, here; highlights include stronger security, a new way to navigate long discussions, and better support for creating polls.

For those who would like to browse the hundreds of specific changes, the Discourse project has also provided a complete log of updates.
