We’ve overhauled the invite UX to make it quicker and easier to use. Invites can now be accessed via an improved interface on the user menu. Pending link and email invites are now displayed in a combined interface. Redeemed invites are displayed in chronological order, newest first. Non-staff users are now allowed to invite others by copying a link to share in addition to sending an email invite.

We now disable mailing list mode via site settings by default so sites don’t experience an unexpectedly large cost from outgoing email. Site owners that wish to allow mailing list mode on their site will need to uncheck
disable mailing list mode in site setting.
Category moderators can now pin and unpin topics within their assigned category.
