I know @Machina will update the OP, but I did want to point out some recent updates and I believe all Forum issues have been addressed now:
- Unicode issue has been resolved
- Quick Reply spacing is fixed (this post is being typed in the Quick Reply box!)
- The paging issue has been corrected
- The Button Bar has been "thinned out" so it's no longer as tall as it was before
- Some minor color clean-up for tables in Dark and Blue themes
So far as I'm aware, these are all the issues related to the Forums - and all have been addressed. Obviously, if you feel something is still broken or find something new that needs to be addressed, feel free to let me know...
