There is now a 'Watch Forum' button on the forum page itself as well as on the forum list page.

25555: Allow admins to send on behalf of any organisation
Website admins (and other groups who are granted permission) have access to the page /admin/messaging/. This lets them:
a) send messages on behalf of any organisation
b) view messages sent on behalf of any organisation
without having to be an admin member of those organisations.
25556: Allow organisation admins to see all sent messages
Organisation admins can now see all the messages that have been sent on behalf of that organisation i.e. by other admins. Useful for co-ordinating communications....

There is a new page at /admin/forums/. Website admins (and others granted permission to see that page) are able to view, edit the properties and post to ALL forums, regardless of organisation memberships.

'Forum admins' (those who have permission to the /admin/forums/ page are now able to remove any forum post or entire topic. The action is recorded and the post is retained in the database, it is just hidden from view.
25496: Organisation forum list widget
There is a new Organisation Forums widget which will list all forums that belong to an organisation. It displays a list similar to the one you see at the main forums page - /forums/. You can choose to group by category, and show or hide the navigation.
25497: Personal forums widget - last post notification
The personal watched forums widget has been improved so that it maintains it's 'new post' status until the user actually looks at the relevant forum, rather than resetting each time the user logs out.
In addition there is now an option to show the most recent post information underneath the name of each watched forum.

Finally fixed the error that occurs when retrospectively populating a product membership group, when people have purchased the same item multiple times (in more than one transaction).
25597: odd bug when adding widget to page
Fixed a problem that happened when editing a widget - after you save the widget and go back to the list, only the new widget was displayed.
