Yes, I didn't get to updating those yet as I'm currently on the road. Will try to get to it in the next few days.

Updated my test board (locally), no issues so far with all of the extensions in development there installed. :)

I guess this needs to be documented, poked mrgoldy about.

Great,
I thought it would be useful to let people know and then note down in the changes the addition of the user interface for ACP mass-emails. :)

Issues resolved by pulling in the updated s9e/text-formatter might deserve a mention in the Bug Fixes list that goes public.
  • Certain emoji characters no longer render correctly after phpBB 3.2.6 (PHPBB3-16074)
    • BBCodes using {TEXT} token in HTML tags may not work after phpBB 3.2.6. (PHPBB3-16053)
