v1.9 Minor Release
Version: 1.9.0
Release Date: 20161206
Visibily there isn't a great deal to this release apart from the new look of the forums, which will act as a segueway into mobile readiness, and later a mobile app. Under the hood, there are a number of changes, not much for general consumption, but good from a development standpoint.

Bug Fixes
    Altered the 404 refresh on the master page to hit the defined index page

    Added functionality to CSSCache to allow it to start a new cache, effectively letting you create multiple caches
    Removed pretty URLs from the main menu, as I am now preferencing straight URLs
    Added phpBB CSS cache refreshing
    Migrated from SVN to Git, allowing for a much better deployment pattern
    Created environment files
    Updated phpBB software to version 3.1.10
    Improved the spambot countermeasures, which will hopefully see an end to bots on the forums (at least for a while anyhow)

Required Features
    Changed the extension on all CSS assets from .css to .css.php
    Added styles BorderGradientLinearLeftToRight and BorderGradientLinearTopToBottom
    Updated the sitemap to reflect the current URLs

Some small bug fixes for phpBB boundary classes that I overlooked when I upgraded the forum software

Bug Fixes
    Reconfigured the PM boundary class with phpBB so that private messages send
    Turned off phpBB error reporting, as it was clobbering Circle314 error reporting, and polluting the error logs

Added in lifetime premium, as promised, and put in some brutal anti-spam measures that will hopefully destroy spam forever on the boards

Bug Fixes
    Fixed a major bug in the shop that was preventing people scrolling down to see the "Purchase" button

    Lifetime Premium is now the only premium option available, and costs $10 USD (premium used to be $5 for 3mo, $8 for 6mo, $12 for 1 year)
    All accounts that had previously purchased premium now have automatic lifetime premium

v1.9.6 Patch Release
Version: 1.9.6
Release Date: 20180225
Kicked the old project code into gear, and fixed a minor bug

Bug Fixes
    Fixed an annoying bug where the game log showed an Empire's "internal name" rather than "display name". This meant "Trojans" was showing as "Ancient Greece - Troy", which is silly.

    The old project code now works again, meaning new content can be pushed out
