Changes for December 2007

2.2.2.8 (2007-12-03)
- Fixed the Tab order on the form elements of the logon page
- Improved memory footprint during session creation, transaction and teardown during the logon process
- Bug Fix: When you logged onto the forum, and got the username, password or verification code incorrect. The logon process would relay you back to the log-in page after a second or subsequent successful login attempt. This was due to an error in the session parser. Login attempt > 1 will now return you to the page where you initially clicked "logon" or if it really gets lost it will return you to the board root.

2.2.2.8 (2007-12-04)

- Added necessary kernel reoutines to allow PM manipulation
- Added kernel reoutine to allow purging of keys within the perma-cache
- Added mathematic funtion to generate "Average Posts Per Day" statistic
