The latest release of the forum software introduced two new features:

The "My Bookmarks" page (linked at the top of the page) has become the "My Bookmarks and Watches" page, since it now lists all watched forums and topics as well as the bookmarks.

When replying to a post, there's a new "Wikipedia" button, and an associated [wikipedia] XYZ [/wikipedia] UBB tag which will create a link to the Wikipedia page of the term "XYZ". For example, "[wikipedia]Dunder_Mifflin[/wikipedia]" will become: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunder_Mifflin

nice!

One thing, I am not sure how it displays on other browsers but on my machine the width of the Wikipedia button is not enough to contain the button caption. The last letter gets truncated.

I'm running firefox 3.5.6 on an xp machine. I notice that how much of the last 'a' gets cut off varies depending on my current font size.

That had been noticed already, and will be fixed in the next release.
