Vanilla 1.2 is going to be a great, significant release. There will be plenty of new features, many of which will be included as new extensions, allowing them to be easily disabled and enabled easily.
Some new features are:
Automatic image width reduction by window size
(an upcoming update to HTML Formatter
), a feature similar to the one on IP.Board, so that images never create horizontal scrollbars on the page; images will either be too small in width to be sized, or the width will be reduced to the perfect size.
Minification, compression, and a bunch of other speed optimizations
(an upcoming extension called Minify) to make the forums load faster for users, especially first-time users.Whisper notifications
extension) so that users don't miss whispers
Some will be enabled by default, others won't be. So we want to know, which extensions (if any) do you think add essential
functionality to Vanilla 1? There are so many really awesome extensions out there, but we don't want to include most of them, just the ones that add a very commonly used functionality
, ones that will be useful for 90% of Vanilla installations.
