  • added a state machine for user logins

  • built-in multi-site support

  • spam protection from akismet/viking

  • forum authorization rules (public/private/invitation)

  • email and atom feed support

  • xml/json API (not 100% tested yet, fixing soon)

  • highline based easy console installer

  • internationalization via the I18n framework
