Here's the changelog. Please report any issues

===============================================================================
 ! Updating session handlers
 ! Adding HTTPS
 ! fetch_web_data now uses cURL, falling back to sockets
 ! Ported image proxy support from SMF 2.1
 ! Also added HTTPS for avatars
 ! Added a simple exception handler
 ! Check session while logging in
 ! Sanitize some fields to help guard against XSS
 ! Validate email addresses with PHP’s filter method
 ! Fix search highlighting to not mangle/expose some HTML
 ! Fix password acceptance when special characters were used in UTF-8;
 ! Correct some random logic errors in the profile area
 ! Use ampersands instead of semi-colons for PayPal’s return link
 ! Fix sending multiple MIME-Version headers in notification mail

Now the problems start  <::>
Posts to the Shoutbox no longer show up. Have disabled it until I can find the fix. The shoutbox on the portal works however and I have moved it to the top so please use that for chats for now    ^)(^

Now sorted. Somehow in htaccess file the default php version had changed to 7 instead of 55  ^'?

I have switched the PHP version on the server to PHP7. This has much improved performance and security. However, some installed mods are not compatible at the moment. Good news is that they are not much used mods. Hence the Quiz, Breeze and Two Factor Authentication have been disabled. The latter should be fixed fairly soon.  Enjoy some faster load times  ><{
TFA has now been fixed and is available again  |&<

Thanks Boss! No wonder I notice the pages seem to load faster.

"Connection Problems

Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later."

Just found out the hosting provider is going to do server upgrades at 22:00 hrs UTC and the site will be down for up to 3 hrs. Looks like all the sites are hammering the database server before then causing these messages.  <::>
I'll keep this thread updated as to any issues
