Version 1.1.8

This update has a big impact on the core platform that is shared by parish sites and news sites. In particular, there are some really amazing updates to the Newsletters tool and how emails can be sent out from news sites, that has allowed us to introduce major improvements to how emails are sent from parish sites, too, which will be a much nicer experience for parishioners. Bots were causing big problems by creating spam parishioner accounts, which has been fixed now. We’ve cleaned up a bunch of old code we weren’t using anymore to make pages appear faster and lighten the load on our servers. And we’ve made significant improvements to how accounts are created and managed, too.
