We’ve just released the long-awaited v3-compatible Groups Plugin. Group discussions have been updated to work (and look) more like actual forums, with sticky/closed topics and moderation options. The “edit group” area has been updated to be much more user-friendly, and members can now upload photos (if allowed by the group leader). To top it off, we’ve also added a great “Browse Groups” page that is available (by default) to the public.
We’ve also updated the SE platform to v3.05 to fix some minor bugs. We are now working on updating the Events Plugin, which will be followed by the final SE v3 release!
