<h3>Style Updates</h3>
<p>Several reported issues with the vBulletin 6 Default Style and Themes have been fixed and updated. These include:</p>
<li>VB6-114 - The blue background on the active nav on mobile doesn't have a good contrast</li>
<li>VB6-205 - Small Screens have extraneous borders within a channel's topic list.</li>
<li>VB6-238 - namecard post count. The Namecard now supports larger post count values</li>
<li>VB6-241 - Post footer links use a hard-coded font and size. Should use a Style Variable.</li>
<li>VB6-251 - Table BBCode needs "overflow-x: Auto" added.</li>
<li>VB6-316 - Updated the winter theme's footer copyright link color to be more legible</li>
<li>VB6-319 - Winter theme sticky post text needs more contrast</li>

<h2>Back End / AdminCP Changes</h2>
<p><strong>This feature has been removed.</strong> Over time, this functionality has been superseded by the Notices feature. Instead of having duplicate systems for Notices to the end user, the Announcement functionality has been removed. The upgrade process will convert active Announcements to Notices. Notices offer the same options that Announcements previously provided. Notice criteria will allow you to continue showing Notices in specific forums, timed, use HTML or BBCode, and provide additional display options.</p>
<h3>Style Scheduling</h3>
<p>This new feature can be found in the AdminCP under <code>Styles -&gt; Style Schedules.</code> Using Style Schedules will allow site administrators to highlight different events on your site, whether they are holidays, community birthdays, or sporting events. </p>

<p>When setting the schedule, the style selection will always start at midnight on the start date and end at 11:59 pm on the end date.</p>
<h3>Style Variables</h3>
<p>New Style Variables allow you to format the post footer controls. These are listed in the Posts &amp; Content style variable ground. The style variables added are:</p>
<li>post_controls_font, post_controls_divider_color, post_controls_quote_active_text_color, post_controls_text_color, post_controls_votes_border.</li>
<p>Note: Changing the post_controls_text_color variable will change non-reaction post control icons to the same color.</p>
