Right now I'm running 2.1.6 on my forum and it is not stable at current volune (150k hits a day). We are down for at least an hour a day lately because DB connections get frozen. I understand that newer versions of the software don't have this problem.
Is there a zip file I can try? Do I need to make any table changes to run it?
I'm running all this with Postgres 8.
Thanks for any help in this. I'll definitely post results of whatever I try out.

2.1.7 is better than 2.1.6. You need to be careful about merging it into your production system and updating your db schema. For example, some member files (avatars) are stored in the jforum project directory (not in the database) so you don't want to wipe them out. If you use Eclipse and checkout HEAD from CVS then you can use that in production and merge when you need to (but you have to know what you are doing).
