Not strictly a question about the beta, but back on 2013/08/08, the forum daily digest email changed. It used to just report new threads/posts, but now it shows every (unread, perhaps?) message in the beta forum, dated oldest-to-newest. At the bottom, it says something like “And 160 more”, for example.
The new format really isn’t usable, as I would still need to login to toadworld to see what’s new. And a solo DBA preparing for a company merger tends to have to skip things like that for some crazy reason. “Crazy” being the keyword there…
