So there is a substantial update coming to Xenforo very soon, it is currently in the last stage of beta, so I'm expecting it in December, or January at the latest. It is the first large feature update since Xenforo 2.0 was released last year.

Some of the news:

Push notifications
As you would expect with push notifications, you do not necessarily need to be viewing the forum when the notification is received, nor does the browser even need to be active, as demonstrated here:

Naturally, clicking on the notification will take you straight to the content. Also, it can be disabled if you do not want to use it.

URL unfurling
Gives you a preview of the url content, which includes the page title, metadata logo, description and favicon. Such rich previews add more context for users as to what the link contains. URL unfurling can be used anywhere that accepts BB code currently.



Bookmarks and per-post sharing
Bookmark stuff you want to get back to later, and you can check all your bookmarks in a central list in your profile.

You can share any post, using the new share buttons:


Various stuff

New moderator and admin enhancements, better page caching, Font Awesome 5 support, new bbcodes, editor toolbars, tables, password strength checker, and tons of various new additions behind the scenes.

The theme and all the respective addons will also be updated, so you may spot some differences in the other sections as well.
