Editor is responsive, and ability to have small editor show in areas with less space

basically you will see

a combined "vnc/activity", improved performance, tweaks to search, editor and gallery

in the background should be a lot of unseen improvements, performance wise an dbug fixes

editor/pm glitch

when writing a pm

if you highlight the text with your mouse to cut or delete text  the message box  may disappear

if this happens just hit the message link again  and your text should reappear with the editor box

Hi Mike

Looks good.

I know it's probably way low on your list of priorities but unable to post links for YouTube on events on my mobile and iPad. 

Apologies if this isn't the right place for feedback 

Hi Joan

need to test the youtube embedding out fully - but it make sense to do it after the next upgrade which should be released tomorrow :thumbsup:
