This afternoon we released the Release Candidate for Active Forums 4.3 Enterprise. We have also upgraded activemodules.com and activesocial.com to the latest release. Over the past 60 days we have posted 6 builds to 30 customers that requested to be part of the beta. Their feedback has been crucial to ensure we release a stable and hassle free upgrade. I am extremely grateful for their support and feedback over the past several weeks.
Probably the two biggest features for this release are Friendly URLs and Custom Fields. With Friendly URLs you can now have topic urls that look something similar to domain.com/forums/forum-group-name/forum-name/topic-name. We have already noticed significant improvements in our own search engine rankings. Custom Fields give you the ability to add additional fields to the topic editor when a user creates a new topic. We have been using custom fields and it has been a great help for managing topics.
Here are few other topics that will tell you more about the features included with Active Forums 4.3
