Xenforo has released the next version of the forum software that powers the Local Search Forum, version 2.1.0.

However, we are going to wait to implement this. I think we should let other more adventurous forum owners work out the bugs of this point zero release before going live with it here. There are some interesting new features to the 2.1 evolution, certainly, but my concern is that not all of them are 100% stable yet. Xenforo had originally planned a Release Candidate 3 before the "Gold" version but evidently decided to bypass that. I'm still seeing a lot of bug reports for 2.1.0 though.
