Just a note that I will be doing some server software updates tonight; you might expect some hiccups and downtime.

Maintenance is finished -- please let me know if you spot anything on the forum misbehaving!

No hiccup or downtime in my case. While not directly misbehaving in the forum itself, in the RSS feed there is an error.

All items shown in the feed now have a text:

nbsp

<content of post>



Likely somewhere a small typo ('nbsp' is to be replaced with 'nbsp;') occurs.

How confident are you that that's a new bug?

That text never appeared before. QuiteRSS is what I use to read the RSS feeds I subscribe to, but that hasn't been updated.
