Reviews for this release

Awesome release. Works great. We just need to have less time between releases. Lets start doing bug fix releases often with major releases spread out.

I have been using the dnn forms module for a long time now and I’m completely impressed with the new functionality. I would recommend this module to anyone. Keep up the good work, and thanks for all of your time and efforts.

a few users reported fatal error when posting, after upgrading forums to this version, which need to be investigated. Please backup your site prior to upgrading and test carefully all features used on your site!
