Forum launch pushes up the minor version

Alas, the OMGN Forum has finally launched. I've been working on this sucker for 2 weeks, lots of hours put in. Just ask Laura, as she's had to bear the brunt of my not being available near as often.

In any case, here are some release notes for 4.1.0, which includes the new Forum.

Forum

Duh! Obviously! The new Forum lets all of us talk and enables us to create a unique community of gamers here at OMGN. I'm looking forward to seeing us grow.

User Enabling

With the Forum comes necessary controls to weed out unsavory users and those that abuse the site. Thus, we have a mechanism to disable user accounts. It won't delete the user, just disable them.

IP Address Bans

Another popular feature to combat unruly users. We can outright block IP addresses from registering and logging into accounts here on the site.

Tons of Fixes

We had numerous things to fix around the site. We had the potential for XSS attacks on the site if we ever changed our slug generation algorithm, that's been fixed. We had some forms not adhering to a maxlength value to help with usability, that's been fixed. Some cleanup on some Javascript's been done, some display fixes have been made, some text fixes, as well as other various bugs that were showing incorrect users for blog posts.

That's really it! Didn't anticipate being so short, but with all of the other press we've sent out about the launch of the Forum, I didn't see the need to repeat myself again here on my blog.
