vBActivity, vBCredits, AdvReg Bugfixes, Release Schedule Changes, MOTM
by, 14th September 2013 at 01:42 (1108 Views)
This week we've got a special announcement: Starting Monday the 16th September, DragonByte Tech will be changing its release day to Mondays!
This marks the first change in the release schedule in nearly three years, and represents not only what works best for our team, but also what we believe will suit more of our customers.
Nothing like a few releases to get rid of the Monday Blues as well
Additionally, we've got not one, but two mods up for Mod of the Month over at vBulletin.org!
As always, we appreciate you casting your vote for your favourite mod - even if it's not one of ours! Winning MOTM really means a lot to any coder, so please do cast your vote!
In release news, vBActivity v3.1.1 Patch Level 1 has been released, working around an issue in which the "Polls Posted" points type could return invalid data if parts of the forum's database had corrupt data, and fixes a database error with Promotion Notifications.
vBCredits v2.1.1 Patch Level 1 has also been released, fixing an issue where in certain scenarios it was possible to go into negative credits even if you had chosen to disable negative credits in the currency settings.
Advanced Registration v2.0.5 Patch Level 1 has been released, fixing an issue where if someone accepts an invitation to register at the forum, it would log invalid data, making the statistics page display a broken link to the Details.
Our DragonByte Classifieds mod is getting ever closer to its Closed Beta release, and we're looking for testers! If you're interested, send a PM to either @Mokonzi or @Belazor and we'll get back to you.
Closed Beta testers will be able to help shape the initial version of the mod, as well as iron out the bugs, so please do participate if you're interested in running the final version on your site.
Please do be aware that you will not receive a free version of the mod, so please do not apply if you do not intend to purchase the full version after the Closed Beta test ends. You will, however, receive a discount on the full version
vBActivity & Awards v3.1.1 Patch Level 1 has been released, a bugfix release.
vBCredits II Deluxe v2.1.1 Patch Level 1 has been released, a bugfix release.
Advanced Registration v2.0.5 Patch Level 1 has been released, a bugfix release.

This scheduling change that we're introducing starting next week is really going to throw my inner calendar into disarray, I can tell you that for a fact :P
My weeks usually consist of heavy workloads Mon-Fri, release the work late Friday (leaving me exhausted, as release days have a tendency to do), take it easier on Saturday, wind back up to full spin on Sunday, then GOTO 10 and repeat.
Unmaking 3 years worth of habit? Yeah, "interesting" is definitely a word that can be used to describe this
On a side note; any of you dragons looking to pick up the new iPhone 5S? I know Decado in particular is excited for it, more so out of necessity since his iPhone 4 made its last phone call not too long ago.
Myself, I'm always excited for anything that's shiny, and this phone is definitely shiny. Last time, I bought an Android and I've got a second hand iPhone 4 that's getting a bit old as well, so I'm looking forward to getting a faster phone
