    Yes, you read right. There's another upgrade that I'll be performing tonight.
    The previous upgrade focused on getting us to the previous stable update.
    We went from version 1.5.7 to 1.5.9

    In late August, 1.5.10 was released but many people encountered several problems with it so I chose to forgo it while they worked out some of the issues.

    There were a few adjustments since then and a stable version was released.

    The upgrade from 1.5.7 to 1.5.9 also broke the theme which a lot of you are seeing and have reported.
    In an attempt to address that, the automatic update that the theme was supposed to perform against the Xenforo version we're on didn't do what the theme update said it would do so now we're a version behind again.

    I'll be uploading all of the upgrade files today and performing the update immediately.
    At some point today, the forums will be down for a total of, at minimum, 20 minutes.
    At the maximum, 2 hours.

    The focus of the upgrade:
    • Stability
    • Theme Bug Fixes
    I apologize for speed in which I have to perform this upgrade without waiting for low activity but hopefully, this should bring us up to date.

    40 minutes????? Completely unacceptable @Shi . I expect nothing more than 39 mins tops. You out to be ashamed.

    (Good job man. We couldn't function without you)

    We're on a roll with the upgrades, you're an animal, there's no stopping you.

    I have this picture of you waxing the hard disks trying to cut a few nanoseconds off the access times.
