<h1>vBulletin 5.5.X Changes and Updates</h1>
<p>vBulletin 5.5.3 Alpha 4 is now available for testing. It is not recommended to run pre-release builds on production sites.</p>
<h2>Front End Changes</h2>
<h3>Group Icons</h3>
<p>We have resolved a few additional issues with Group Channels. These include:</p>
<ul>
<li>Group Icons can now be removed. Previously you could only replace them with a new icon.</li>
<li>Icon management works properly on the Group Settings Page.</li>

In addition to this, the jQuery Placeholder plugin has been removed from the system. The placeholder attribute is natively supported by browser engines today. This workaround was no longer needed.</p>
<h3>Breadcrumbs</h3>
<p>These have been reworked to display better on smaller screens. Breadcrumb text will no longer be abbreviated with the CSS .ellipsis class. Instead the breadcrumbs will wrap to the next line as necessary. In addition to this, the Home label has been replaced with an icon and appropriate label.</p>

<h2>Back End / AdminCP</h2>
<h3>Improved Search Engine Performance</h3>
<p>A number of performance issues relating to the search engine in vBulletin 5 have been resolved. These changes can significantly speed up your search results when using either keyword based search or the JSON powered search modules placed on...
