I think it looks a bit better and easier on the eyes (Milk v2). I like the rounded corners of the boxes and page numbers, and topic titles that don't shout at you. :)

When I press the back button the page flashes as though there's a quick refresh, not that it's an issue.

I think that could be a 'feature' of the new theme. We are going to play with it a little more over the next week.

The main purpose of the upgrade was to bring up the underlying code to the latest version and ensure we had closed off any loopholes that could be used if the site was attacked again. There may be some slight changes and a couple of things that didn't port over correctly. But anything reported, we will have a look at.

Just to confirm, the site outage at the weekend was another completely new attack on the site and not related to the forum update. The forum update was separate to this and, as well as applying an upgrade with a views to further upgrades and features, improved the security.

The update actually went pretty well, but the timing of the latest attack seemed a little suspicious.

We took the opportunity to upgrade the web site again, so any future attack has to have evolved significantly again to be effective. Given the nature of these attacks, we can't rule out further attempts, but we are going to do everything to keep the site up and as stable as possible.

Tossers.

Just as long as the software is safe. That's our primary concern
