We're getting ready to upgrade to a minor version of the software. The release is mostly fixes, not new functionality, and the board should look and function pretty much as it does now.
The aim is for the beginning of next week. As always, I put in an upgrade request, and our software providers get to it when they can. That's usually quickly, sometimes almost immediately, but if they have a very busy time or something with higher priority, it could take a while, which is why we always struggle with the trade-off of shutting the board down until it's over or keeping the board up and risking losing a few posts along the way, because they don't make it into the saved database. We usually choose the latter.
I'll create a new thread just before I send the request.
