We proudly announce the availability of the public preview of WoltLab Suite 5.2, including all official apps, running on https://beta.woltlab.com.

Please feel free to try out the new features and experience the new version yourself, the preview is accessible for everyone, including non-licensees. The preview is running an Alpha version that may contain errors or features that are still a bit rough around the edges. Please drop us a comment if you feel that something isn’t working right or should be adjusted, building a better software and experience together.

The preview is constantly updated as we make changes and adjustments to the software, however, the data will not be integrated into our main site.

Try it out now at https://beta.woltlab.com

Notice: The version numbers have been unified across our app stack, they now all use the sane version number 5.2.

Bloody hell, you think they could make the postbits a bit bigger? Or are they targetting those with awful eyesight?

I liked the postbit design a bit closer to the appearance in BurningBoard 4. BB5's felt like a slight downgrade, taking a massive chunk of screen estate on desktop and mobile.

I've literally just put on my new computer glasses and the first thing I see is something I can barely see :eek:

Is that really the default? Tiny red/orange? text or should I have gone to Specsavers*

*For anyone wondering WTF I'm on about...

There will be no (significant) changes to the default theme in 5.2, there are other things we wanted to focus on and we put a lot of emphasis on the backwards compatibility of styles and plugins. We do have plans to extend the style system with 5.3, along with a major overhaul of the default style.

Has anyone here taken the leap to 5.2 now that it's come out of beta and is now production?
I'm holding back a little longer until it matures a little more.
