A few improvements:

-added forum security
-much better functionality for administrators and moderators
-better topic tracking
-1 click to view all new posts!
-a calendar! feel free to enter events (they will show at the bottom of the forum -cool!
-lots of new funtions in your control panel (now 'My Controls')

Should be nice! Hope everyone likes the new functions. The forum 'skin' is still being re-done. I figure better to have it up and ugly than not up at all. I'll finish it up tomorrow. Thanks! Sean
