Active Directory Sync from Cloud.ThoughtFarmer Cloud clients can enjoy easy user administration by syncing users with their existing Microsoft Active Directory. Please see AD cloud configuration for configuration and supported feature details. This new feature will also work for clients wishing to set up their web server in a DMZ and have it not be a part of their AD domain.
Increased WCAG compliance features: While not fully WCAG compliant, we have dramatically increased the features to assist users with accessibility requirements. These include:
Added hidden menus to shortcut to key page elements for screen readers.
Added alt tags to all ThoughtFarmer application images (e.g. icons, profile photos)
Added ability for users to set an alt tag for embedded images in the Rich Text Editor.
Added new owner lock option on Forum pages. This allows users to add posts to forums without being able to edit the forum page itself.
Images from external RSS feeds will now also be pulled into ThoughtFarmer when added as a center column feed source.
Profile pages now show user groups organized by group type.
Comment boxes have been enhanced for ease of use and to encourage collaboration.
Added new skinning console options to customize the application toolbar.
Added new forum adminstration page for managing and creating custom forum types.
Added CSS hooks to hide items for specialized configurations. You can now hide profile photo editing, and security permissions on pages to all but admins. You can also now globally disable commenting.

For new installations the default starting database size is increased to 2GB and autogrowth has been increased to 512MB. This is to avoid frequent autogrowth on databases that become full which can greatly impact performance. This will not affect existing installations but is recommended to implement manually.
