    Hey guys,

    Been a long time coming but the first rc of forum 0.2 is available to download and test - silverstripe.org/assets/downloads/Forum/forum-0.2rc2.tar.gz

    This release has a number of improvements and enhancements including support for the upcoming 2.3 release of SilverStripe. While this may still work on earlier versions of SilverStripe it is designed and tested on 2.3+.

    This release includes some great work by Sean (aka halkyon) and myself (just check out the new features!) and props go out to community members simon_w and smartplugsdesign for submitting patches which have been merged in.

    As always if you come across bugs list them at http://open.silverstripe.com/, or leave a comment here.

    0.2 is a snapshot of trunk at a given time (about 2 weeks ago). So no to your question, trunk has all these features and any other fixes that have been submitted in the past 2 weeks
