Ah, the dark art of release engineering...
Good to know. Rock on! 🎸
The NodeBB team is pleased to release v1.6.1, a bugfix/patch release, for general consumption.
v1.6.1 is considered a patch release and there are few changes to note. By-and-large, this is a bugfix release and serves to address a couple of regressions and update failures that were experienced by some admins during the v1.6.0 launch.

Based on my current usage of node bb I have following suggestions for you for your next update. It would be awesome if you guys can take these under consideration.
I know you guys are very busy! But I highly appreciate your consideration on these requests in the next update
PS: I did voted for you for the CMS Critic awards.
Are we going to have a Node bb mobile app ever?
Is there a reason to have a NodeBB mobile app? NodeBB is developed as a public forum/community portal (and web-app), there is no argument in favor of creating separate mobile apps. Excluding a few hardcore members, would anyone install that app?
Mobile apps would give you:
A mobile app would be justified if:
In case someone would want to have a mobile app for a specific purpose, where some of the above-mentioned features are handy, the community owner has to create the task-specific app, using NodeBB API if that's the case.
For administration? Alerts? Admin app can be easily created even using a cross platform mobile development suites (we may post one for iOS if there is a need, we're still debating).
Also, NodeBB is created using JS+HTML. Mobile OS systems are going this direction as well, until the NodeBB mobile app would be ready, maybe there in no reason left at all
Let me know if I am wrong but I don't see a solid argument for a mobile app. Creating and maintaining for iOS/Android would probably be a very bad idea; it takes pointless amount of time for no apparent reason but again, please prove me wrong if I missed something.
ut I don't see a solid argument for a mobile app. Creating and mainta
Hi H7 thanks for your comments.
The reason I think we need app are below:
That's all what I think....
PS: Also, I think we should have pagination on the popular page so that we can see older popular topics too... on this page ..
Actually, you can add NodeBB to your home screen already... should work on both Android and iOS.
However we don't show an alert for it because we find it obtrusive... I personally can't stand sites where I have to spend a couple seconds closing the two or three modals or overlays it shoves in my face when I want to read something, and that is reflected in how we don't do any of that in NodeBB.
