 +
 +New in version 1.68
 +-------------------
 +Each paragraph of text written in a message is now saved as one long line so that they can be wrapped appropriately according to the terminal/​reader width (which should work online as well as in offline readers). ​ Also, message uploads are now supported by typing /UPLOAD (or /UL) on a line by itself (the uploaded message will replace any message written into the editor). ​ Also, now honors the SUB_ANON and SUB_AONLY flags for the sub-boards when cross-posting so that the "​from"​ name is "​Anonymous"​ if either of those flags enabled.
 +
 +New in version 1.67
 +--------------------
 +Version 1.67 added the ability to change the message subject. ​ Note that if using a Synchronet 3.17c development build, this requires a build from July 21, 2019 or newer (that build added the ability to use the RESULT.ED file, even if the editor is configured for QuickBBS MSGINF/​MSGTMP).
