A lot of releases, right? Indeed. We have switched to releasing more often, and we try to deliver as many bug fixes as possible as quickly as possible. Thank you all for your bug reports, and as always thank you for including screenshots which make it easy for us to narrow down on the problem much quicker.
Now let’s not forget new features! 6.8.x was packed with new features and the recently released 6.9.0-beta adds another layer. 6.9.1 is also just around the corner with some more.
Here are a few of our favorite new features added in 6.8 and 6.9:
Ability to attach files to new posts in the front office (useful for forums) and in the back-office without saving post first
Ability to attach an image to each category and to use it as a fall-back for posts without an image in the Universal Item List Widget
Ability to attach an image to image and logo widgets instead of providing a relative filepath
Thank you, Ryan, for stepping forward to serve the Drupal community. On behalf of the community I also want to thank the 13 candidates who put themselves out there in service of Drupal and nominated themselves. We are grateful that our community has so many brave and generous people willing to contribute this way.
Ryan's election to the board represents the sixth year of elections to a community-at-large seat on the Drupal Association board. Each year we've focused on improving the elections process, and this year was no different. We focused on two goals:
Improve the user experience of participating in the elections process.
We added more in-line help materials throughout the elections process.
For candidates, we added information about the responsibilities of a board member to the nomination form, as well as a video message from the Executive Director.
For voters we improved the elections navigation, and provided more educational materials about the IRV voting process.
We implemented a drag and drop ballot, to make it easier for voters to rank candidates.
Make it easier to get to know the candidates.
We updated the candidate profile form, to ask more detailed questions to help voters get to know the candidates.
Based on feedback from previous years, we eliminated the three virtual meet-the-candidates sessions, in favor of giving each candidate the option to post a statement-of-candidacy video. In conjunction with the question and answer section on each candidate profile, we felt this gave the electorate the opportunity to get to know their candidates at their own pace and on their own terms.
Our next steps will be to reach out to the candidates for their evaluation of the elections experience.
We also want to hear from the voters. Please tell us about your experience with the elections process in the comments below. Your feedback is important to us so that we can make the 2018 elections process even better.
About the Elections Methodology: Instant Run-off Voting(IRV)
Elections for the Community-at-large positions on the Drupal Association board are conducted through Instant Run-off Voting. This means that voters can rank candidates according to their preference. When tabulating ballots, the voters' top-ranked choices are considered first. If no candidate has more than 50% of the vote, the candidate with the lowest votes is eliminated. Then the ballots are tabulated again, with all the ballots that had the eliminated candidate as their first rank now recalculated with their second rank choices. This process is repeated until only two candidates remain and a clear winner can be determined. This voting method helps to ensure that the candidate who is most preferred by the most number of voters is ultimately elected. You can learn more about IRV (also known as Alternative Vote) in this video.
There were 13 candidates in contention for the single vacancy among the two community-at-large seats on the Board. 1,240 voters cast their ballots out of a pool of 94,499 eligible voters (1.3%). Voters ranked an average of 3.6 candidates on their ballots.
The bar charts below show the vote counts for each candidate in each round. Place the mouse over a bar to see the number of votes.
Yellow — Votes carried over from the previous round.
Green — Votes received in this round.
Red — Votes transferred away in this round.
A candidate's votes in a round is the sum of the yellow and green bars. Since the green and red bars represent votes being transferred, the sum of the green and red bars is the same.
The exhausted bar represents votes where the voter did not indicate a next preference and thus there were no candidates to transfer the vote to.
The DokuWiki Integration Plugin for Geeklog provides an integration with your Geeklog v2.1.1+ website. This plugin is based on DokuWiki 2016-06-26a "Elenor of Tsort", ” which is the latest release at the time of this writing.

Five Nights at Freddy's 4 Full Version - Feel the fear one last time
Five Nights at Freddy's 4 is the fourth, and last (supposedly) release in the Five Nights at Freddy's saga. Developed and published by Scott Cawthon, this horror game has delighted all the fans of horror games, and has also raised the criticism from those that say that there are too many FNaF games. This time, you are not a security guard fighting for your life against creepy animatronics. Instead, you are a defenseless kid who struggles every night because of his terrifying nightmares (nightmares about creepy animatronics, of course).
Now, animatronics don't kill you, because they are just nightmares, but they can scare you as they have done since forever. Freddy, Bonnie, Chica, and Foxy have come back, and they have brought new nightmare friends with them. Also, the location is not an office anymore. It takes place in your own room, a room with a bed, two doors, and a dark closet. Each part of the room is dangerous since they are places where the animatronics can hide.
Moreover, the mechanics of the game have significantly changed compared to the previous tree installments in the saga. Now, you do not depend on your vision, or the cameras, because in this release, you don't have them. Now, you have to hear; you have to pay attention to every sound, breath, and laugh, because sound indicates where enemies will come from. It's recommended to play with earphones or with a very high volume. You are free to play with a regular sound volume, but you will not be able to hear your enemies.
Are you ready to say goodbye to your beloved animatronics?
As mentioned, the mechanics have changed. Now, you have nothing more than your senses and a flashlight to defend yourself. You have to control both doors, the closet, and the bed behind you. Animatronics can appear in any of the four places. What you have to do is walk bravely to the doors and the closet, listen carefully and if you hear something, close the door as fast as you can and hold it shut until the sound disappears. In case you don't hear anything, use the flashlight to prevent enemies from coming. The bed at your back has a little Freddy fluffy toy, but sometimes dreadful miniature Freddy's appear, followed by Nightmare Freddy himself. You have to shoo them with the flashlight unless you want Freddy to appear. It can seem easy, but the slightest mistake (using the flashlight when you hear a breath, or not closing the doors in time), will bring an end to the game.
Freddy, Bonnie, Chica, and Foxy have come back, and they have brought new nightmare friends with them
Talking about your friends the animatronics, when you download FNaF4, you will have to face six of them, eight if you take into account the "nonofficial" ones. You already know Freddy, Bonnie, Chica, and Foxy (nightmare version) but let me introduce you to Nightmare FredBear and Nightmare (plainly). All the animatronics in nightmare version are decrepit, broken, and especially scary. They have very long sharp teeth and glowing eyes, but Nightmare FredBear and Nightmare have even longer teeth, and they are very dangerous because they are unpredictable. This is especially true of Nightmare, since he is black and semi-transparent. They start appearing on nights 5 and 7, respectively.
In this version, you can check out the main features of Five Nights at Freddy's 4:
A new story that reveals what happened in the Bite of the 87
A gloomy mini-game that allows you to skip the first two hours of the nights (if you are successful)
Nightmare version of the old and well-known animatronics (Bonnie, Freddy, Chica and Foxy)
4 new animatronics: Nightmare, Nightmare FredBear, Plushtrap and Nightmare Cupcake (Chica's cupcake can attack you know)
