Post by Rad on Jun 9th, 2008 at 3:38pm
The boyz over at YaBB released a new version last week v2.2.2:


We here at Radified are currently using v2.2.1, so this would be a minor upgrade .. but I always like to use the latest version.

I have uploaded the new files to the Rad server at may look into upgrading .. if I find time (legal stuff here time consuming).

Here's a list of changes (3 months since last upgrade):

This release contains several bug fixes, performance improvements, and layout improvements reported as issues by users of YaBB 2.2.1. It is not considered a critical update, but as always, upgrading is easy and recommended.

New forum (Y2.2.2) installed.

Takes me a while to dial-in new installation, but we should migrate to Y2.2.2 eventually. (I'll move all Members & Messages as the last thing I do before converting over to Y222)

Their Setup file had trouble dealing with installations to non-standard directories, such as I use. You'll notice this particular script is installed to the /yabb222 directory (while /yabb2 is standard).

I also installed non /cgi-bin files to the /yabb222files directory (while /yabbfiles is standard).
