Missing avatars

     The SMF 2.1 Beta 3 "Full Install" package (smf_2-1-beta3_install.zip 3.09Mb) does not include the Actors or Musicians avatars. Are they being deprecated? The only avatars included are in the new Oxygen set.

They were deprecated years ago and in any case have licensing issues.

     Thank you both!  ;) I also read that "Glow" and "Shadow" are being removed. What will happen to the posts that include these modifiers? Will the text revert to normal, or will there be some error symbols on the displayed pages?

::) :-X ::)

It will just have [glow]text[/glow] in the post. I believe they're going to be made available as mods for people who need them.
