Today, we are excited to release XenForo 1.5.0, the first supported version in the XenForo 1.5 series. This release builds on previous versions of XenForo to add new features and bug fixes. We are now confident in recommending customers to upgrade their production websites to 1.5.0. Please see upgrade information below.
We would like to thank everyone that provided bug reports and feedback throughout the beta and release candidate period.
All customers with active licenses may now download the new version from the customer area.
The new features in XenForo 1.5 include:
- Thread tagging
- Responsive admin control panel
- Two-step verification
- Floating notices
- Profile post comment improvements, including soft deletion and liking
- Admin sent alerts and conversations

XenForo Resource Manager and Media Gallery with 1.5
The XenForo Resource Manager 1.2.0 and XenForo Media Gallery 1.1.0 have been released to add support for the new XenForo 1.5 features. If you are running either of these add-ons, we recommend you upgrade them after upgrading to 1.5. However, previous releases of these add-ons should remain compatible with XenForo 1.5.
XenForo Enhanced Search 1.1.2 is compatible with XenForo 1.5.
Installation and Upgrade Instructions
Full details for how to install and upgrade XenForo can be found in the XenForo Manual.
Add-ons and styles may be broken after upgrading to 1.5 (from 1.4 or earlier). You must test your add-ons thoroughly or look for updates. Be especially careful with add-ons that cover similar features to ones that are added to 1.5; these may conflict with the core XenForo data. If data conflicts are found, they will need to be resolved in a new add-on release or by removing the add-on before upgrading to 1.5.
We highly recommend that you backup your data (database and files) before you upgrade to 1.5, particularly if you are running third-party add-ons. You may wish to also upgrade your test installation before updating production to make sure you are prepared.
