Here it is folks!
A release of YAF that supports Memberships, Roles and Profiles. No longer ALPHA, but please test before deploying. BACKUP EVERYTHING before you would attempt an upgrade!

Lanuages
Languages need to be updated to the latest in english.xml. Help with this is appreciated.

Testers
Thanks to AirSickMoth, Continienzo, redLine, Kaan1983, Mr. Data, GaryH and all the other that helped test v1.9.3.3 alpha to make this release what it is -- keep up the good work!

Development Team
Thanks to MicScoTho, Mek and especially Ederon who pull a lot of weight into this release! I couldn't do it without your help guys! :cheesy:

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...

Notes
v1.9.3 will upgrade from v1.9.1.x and below fine. I don't suggest you do it until you feel the software it ready.

Bug Reports
Please post your v1.9.3 problem threads in this forum: http://forum.yetanotherf...opics32_v193-Issues.aspx 

DNN
Sorry to say, DNN support was not a goal for this ALPHA release. That's not to say you cannot get it working with this release. If you do play around with it, please report back your findings.

Compiling
YAF v1.9.3 BETA doesn't requires Web Application Project to compile! In fact, most of the main source is dynamic compilation. But if you do want to compile the whole source, please download Visual Studio 2008 Express .

BIN: Includes the compiled forum and forum page files without the source.
SRC: Includes the compiled forum and forum page files with full source.

When I post FP:Mek in a topic, I'm leaving my footprint there so I can track it once I get into coding/supporting. (Yes I stole this off Ederon 🙂 )

Thanks for the beta Jaben, you deserve jug of beer (or other drink of your choice). I can't wait to get back to test it and help with YAF again.

It's still beta, so you should try it before upgrading. In any case, let us know about result.

Are the attached zips corrupt? I wasn't able to open both using either Windows or WinZip to open the files.
