Hi everyone,

[UPDATED Sunday 9:55pm]
The forum has undergone 8 essential upgrades today from XF 1.5.13 to 1.5.21 and now has full GDPR compliance as well. As such you are requested to (forced) re-accept the privacy policy to continue using the forum if you haven't already done so, please read and accept / decline as you see fit.

Tomorrow I will be updating the XF platform to the latest 2.0.x branch and upgrading PHP to a newer version to improve caching performance and reduce overheads.
[/END UPDATE]

First of all, thank you SO MUCH for the kind donations to help us pay for things to keep moving here...you guys are the best! :)

As a result of the donations being met we have reached the goal and are now in a position to do some much needed software updates. As MIUI 10 is right around the corner for a public release its a good time to also get the forum upgraded and clean up old EOL device forums etc.

From this evening 12pm midnight (Sunday), Beijing time the forum will go through a series of read-only pauses so no posts or messages will be permitted during the maintenance window.

I aim to keep the disruptions to an absolute minimum but please bare in mind there might be some issues. Any questions let us know here...

Cheers,

Mark
