I regularly need to rewrite and improve existing code to keep myself from going insane. That is what this update consists of, for the most part.

Some small but noticable changes:
- New screen resolutions: 1024x600 and 1600x1200
- New language: Vietnamese
- OpenSearch plugin + autodetection
- Basic double-post prevention
- The last traces of the category system have been completely removed

Furthermore, the authentication system has been rewritten to be more secure. This is the reason why everybody has been forcibly logged out. After logging in again, your password should be almost impossible to crack in the event that someone gets his hands on the raw user database or the cookie stored in your browser. This, however, doesn't mean that there aren't any other methods for a hacker to get your password, it just means we've factored out some obvious methods.
