There's a substantial upgrade available to us, which the Featuressection tells in great detail.

Like all new upgrades, I am going to sit on this for a couple weeks and make sure the upgrade kinks have been worked out. (I hate being first and discovering tons of bugs!)

Among the changes:

"The new BBCode parser adds support for all the emojis you've been using on mobile devices, the new font awesome integration adds retina quality icons to prosilver, and the quoting feature has been enhanced. Together with Symfony 2.8, an improved integration of the twig template engine, and full support for both PHP 7.0 & 7.1, we have increased extensibility of phpBB 3.2 while reducing development time.

Board admins will apprecite the new installer, which enables easier updating using the browser or a command-line interface, as well as the newly added reCAPTCHA 2.0 to thwart would-be spammers at the gate."

Any additional spam blocking is welcome. I like the improvements for the mobile experience and fonts.

Just wanted to let you guys know!

I appear to have issues attaching PNG files (again), do you think the forum upgrade is somehow responsible for these issues? :-)
The PNG upploads but the "place inline" never appears.

I haven't made any upgrade since December. When did it stop working?

I had a closer look now, it appears it is only large PNG:s that causes the problem.

This rather small PNG works:
This much larger picture does not get the "Place inline" when uploaded as a PNG though, but ut works fine when I upload it as an equally large JPEG:
This discussions feels familiar somehow by the way? :-P

I wonder if it's a size restriction.

I took a look at the settings and there is no change 25mb attachment per POST So if you are layering in a lot of those huge PNG's, that could explain what you are seeing.

I've stuck to JPG so I can have plenty of space on posts if I know they will be picture heavy :)
