We're busy working on Panther 1.1.0 and we've decided to delay the release by another week, and we wanted to share the reason for doing so with the community.
We've been working extremely hard to get the release ready for today but unfortunately it still isn't quite ready yet. We've introduced Twig to replace the old template system, which in itself, took a month for me to complete.
We've also been fixing bugs, dropped PHP 5.2 support and also better enhanced the code such as creating a function to handle forum subscriptions. We've had a thorough review of the code, and have then moved on to the styles when we were sure no more bugs in the templating exist. This is to ensure that the templating is perfect for the release.
However, while we have made a lot of progress there is still a fair amount to complete. We are introducing a new feature called 'themes'. A style can now (as of 1.1.0) contain 'themes' which the administrator of the board can customise. This allows the board to be displayed in different ways in a single click of the admin panel. Additionally, we have been working on a new theme for the website and are re-organising the admin panel structure and design. The style is currently optimised for Chrome only. This is part of the reason we're delaying the release.
I also thought I'd display some screenshots of the style so that you know as much as I do, how good this is going to be! Be sure to post your comments so we can hear YOUR feedback, let us know what you all think!
