Forum 04.04.00 Submitted To DotNetNuke Release Process

The 04.04.00 version of the forum module has been submitted to the DotNetNuke release process. I am not sure how long it will take to complete the process, but I don't think the module will fail any part of it. The reason for my thinking is the high amount of testing done by myself and a group of team members on This beta site really allowed us to test changes as I made them and also allowed team testers access to the module to test the various usage scenarios. There were a few people that definitely went above and beyond what I expected from them and think they deserve some community 'cred'.

Brett Conlan and Matthias Schlomann offered so much help in testing and providing feedback. The newest team member Rob really spent tons of time and helped the module look 10x better at least and will be providing ways to educate others on how to theme the module in the near future. There were others who participated who deserve my thanks too (and you have it of course), but these folks really took it to a higher level so I felt I should at least mention them here.

The module has completely changed for those who were using it previously, but all were for the better. From a usability perspective, it is much easier to use and still works very similar to how it did previously for those not administrating the module. I am not certain of the number of enhancements and bug fixes, but I have documented over 80 for this release which means there are probably well over 100. I don't know all the other DNN forum modules out there in depth, but I really think this one has more configuration options than any of them. The one feature not possible in this version is Anonymous posting, which we have on our roadmap. Outside of this one, I feel pretty confident this module can meet the vast majority of use cases.
