It basically means we made the forums better. Most of the benefits of the upgrade were behind the scenes security fixes to protect the forum from attacks like the one we suffered half way through last season. Its not the most exciting upgrade ever but it was very important that we did it. Everything went very smoothly without any drama in the end.
