Today, we are pleased to announce Discourse 3.1! Filled with features for members and admins alike, this version includes chat threads, a more customizable sidebar, improved search and numerous other improvements. This release is accompanied by the launch of our Discourse AI plugin, embracing the power of emerging large language models (LLMs) to make your community easier to use and moderate.
I remember when you were rolling this out on BoingBoing, and even the earliest version crapped all over anything else. Such a lovely platform you’ve created. May the completely enshittified Facebook crash and burn one of these days, and may people remember how much more functional a proper discussion platform can be.
