New features in 2.1.0.beta6
Specify locale via SSO
You can now specify a user’s default locale on Discourse via SSO. Discourse will now accept
locale_force_update as part of the SSO payload. See FEATURE: allow specifying locale via SSO · discourse/discourse@e697015 · GitHub for more details.
Erode bounce score every time an email is sent
Discourse tracks email bounces to ensure that we stop sending email to an address that is repeatedly failing. Now, whenever an email is successful a small we erode the bounce score. This helps auto correct so users continue to receive email even if there is an erratic failure or two.
Split Themes and Components
Continuing our work to improve Discourse theming we’ve started to split themes and components. Each customization is either a theme or a component, it cannot be both. Users are now prompted to choose between a theme or a component when it is created. Note: splitting themes and components is ongoing and more changes will follow in Discourse 2.2.
Rails Plugin Generator
