While we try to fix all known bugs before a release, some are difficult to confirm or find a solution to.  Below is a list of things that are possibly still issues that will be solved by the next release.

Known Possible Issues:
- Xs in Broadcast Messages
- htaccess files – add for all directories that don’t have one
- Memberlist Sorting & Rebuild Members List
- PMs stored on second page – PMs do not always show correct storage page
- Highlight tag changes font properties
- Admin/Gmods who have stealth enabled and are subsequently demoted remain in stealth mode
- Convert improvement to Setup.pl
- BB code in user profile
- Rebuild message index doesn't load different pages
- Remove member group takes long time on large forum; split into steps
- Member Group color effects – better format of lines suggested
- Question if links regenerated for all other situations have conflict with censored words and Guardian blocked keywords
- UTF-8 support
- Search by Member hangs on large forums
- Viewing PM when replying to it
- Member groups deleting in Profile
- Forgotten passwords email link wrapping
- Broadcast Messages stored in one share file, so reading the first BM causes all of them to lose the “new” tag
- Apache Server Tokens Bug – if faked server tokens are used to fake IIS, causes 500 server error when yabb uses work-around for IIS servers
- Case-sensitive search in foreign messages
- New Year’s Day bug – On Jan 1, 2008, posts from 12/31/07 did not display as “yesterday” in bold font like it normally does
- User pre-registered error
- Registration Log
- Bug in yabb21.css file – changing color in droppages doesn’t work
- Bug in User CP & Signature – problem seems to be imstore difference in 2.1 vs. 2.2, stored messages don’t convert properly
- Long threads, next page’s first post hidden
- Reverse DNS lookup causes slow down if rDNS is looked up for an IP that does not provide it
- Javascript causes banning via the Guardian when it's between [code] tags of the message variable

I will be installing it soon. YaBB v2.2 was released 4 months ago, on Nov 8th. I have installed all the fixes that were avalable upto Jan 21, when we upgraded to v2.2, so I probably have most of them already.
