@Scott When can we expect Q2A 1.8 official release. I do not have any issue using the dev one - but Q2A 1.7.4 is not good to be used due to incompatibility with ipV6.
But my concern is regarding the notification system- there is nothing in the current version regarding this. At least can the dev version of this be put available? Because I would like to add some notification features like "Follow a question", "Notifications regarding blog posts" etc. which are not in core. If this notification system is not coming any time soon, I can manage with the current notification system and add these there.
Also, I noticed a bug, when sharing qa_users table on multiple sites running Q2A 1.8, the category widget is displaying data from older site on the newer site. If I get a fix, I shall do it and give a pull request.
