YAF v1.9.4 RC4 (Dated: 6/22/2010)

v1.9.4 is .NET v3.5 SP1 ONLY!

This Release Candidate fixes a big issue with fresh installations failing completely. It also adds improved speed for larger forums by only pulling required post text.

This release would not have been possible without all the wonderful YAF developers! [thumbup]

Note: In v1.9.4 the AppSettings have changed! YAF.Root is now YAF.AppRoot! There is a new AppSetting: YAF.FileRoot which defaults to AppRoot but can be set to something different if desired. Also added is BaseUrlMask which is the server value override for all external links (e.g. links from emails, etc.). Read the included app.config file comments for more information.

Note: In v1.9.4, the name of the upload folder has changed! Rename from "upload" to "uploads"!

Languages
Languages may be out of date to the latest in english.xml. Help with this is appreciated.

Contributing to YAF
How can you support YAF, you ask? Just help a bit. Test the software and post bugs. Answer a few questions on this forum for other, less knowledgeable, YAF admins. If you really want to go crazy, write a little documentation in the wiki...

Bug/Issue Tracking
YAF now has proper bug tracking thanks to another excellent open source .NET project: BugNET . Please use the tracker to for issues: http://tracker.yetanotherforum.net/ 
If you want to discuss a possible issue, please post the discussion in this forum: http://forum.yetanotherf...2_Bugs-and-Problems.aspx 

Web Application Project
Yes folks, the project is WAP again. Due to general development direction and demand, we're back to Web Application Project.

DNN Module
DNN Module is done. Thank you balbes for all your DNN expertise! Just download it and install into DNN. The YAF module takes care of almost all the details. Take a look here: http://dnn.yetanotherforum.net  Grab the source here: https://yafdotnet.svn.so.../yafdotnet/trunk/yaf_dnn 

API Documentation
YafAPIDocumentation.chm is the compiled docs for the YAF v1.9.4 beta API. It provides a nice way to search or lookup related classes. Currently, it's rather limited as real API documentation is very time consuming (e.g. examples, "see also"). It will be evolving over time.

Compiling
If you do want to compile the source, please download Visual Studio 2010 Express .

SRC: Includes the compiled forum and forum page files with full source and binaries for NET v3.5 SP1.
BIN: Includes the compiled forum and forum page files without the source for NET v3.5 SP1.

The paging can be moved to data layer.
The problem is that to make it universal Sql Server 2005 is required, we can't make smth. like SELECT TOP number * FROM ... in 2000, the 'number' should be a constant. The sp should be cached anyway and this can't be implemented as a dynamic query.
In 2000 terms it can be done, but the number of posts should be discrete like 5, 10, 20 and a last messageid on a page as a start point.

All the core functionality is here
sp post_list
pages/posts.aspx
But the feature is a rather complex one.
It requres some thanks feature modification too.
I don't know what Jaben thinks about it, but if you'll implement the core db paging functionality I could do the rest, when I have time, currently I don't have it, as I need speed boost for other data layers and it can be published as a community modification in any case.
