https://blog.discourse.org/2019/06/discourse-2-3-released/ This is likely a little late, but Discourse 2.3 is out. They have: Revamped the flag / review system. Added Unicode usernames and translations for emoji names. Added staff notices for posts. Added requesting membership to a group. Added ignore which builds upon the existing mute feature by collapsing an enemy's posts. Added the Assign plugin which allows you to assign topics to specific people, it would seem to be similar to how you can assign bug reports or tickets to specific people in bug trackers. Added the ability to prune old accounts with no posts. Added the ability to make 2FA mandatory for staff.
