v1.5.0, A Long-awaited Release
I suppose in the grand scheme of things, the wait between the last NodeBB release (v1.4.6) and this release, v1.5.0, has not actually been long, though it has felt like so because the development team has been working on it for quite some time. In fact, the first closed issue of this milestone was actually completed in mid-December, and we've been anxiously waiting for the right time to release it.
The reason why we've held off on releasing v1.5.0 until today is so we could fit in as many breaking changes as we could at one time. We've received constructive criticism in the past about how difficult it was to upgrade NodeBB due to breaking changes (some unintentional), and so since the last minor release (v1.4.0), we've changed our strategy once again so that subsequent releases along the same branch should be more stable.

Great job and congrats to the team and contributors!
Cool stuff @julian !
Any known issues when upgrading from 1.4.5 to 1.5.0 yet?
Great job in getting another release together! I know lot days of hard work goes into it. nice one.
How do you get those nice colors in your terminal?
@cryptochrome It should be part of the upgrade script, unless you're running this on a terminal that doesn't have (or support) the right color output (i.e. ssh'ing into linux without setting x-term correctly)
I just noticed... @julian you're running on an MBP now? Last I remember you were rocking pure ubuntu, weren't you?
I still use Linux day-to-day, although I picked up a 2015 model MBP so we could test NodeBB on safari (when the need arises)... it's... an okay laptop
Perhaps someday I'll format it and load Xubuntu...
