Another year has passed in the life of the UseBB Project, which is now officially 3 years old. We have taken this opportunity to release version 1.0.3 of the light and Open Source PHP/MySQL bulletin board package "UseBB".
Version 1.0.3 is a minor improvements and bug fix release. Changes include but are not limited to:
- added httpOnly cookies support for improved security (enabled by default);
- a few bugs fixed throughout the whole board, including for BBCode processing;
- some "strange things" were fixed (for example the ability to post with only BBCode tags and no text).
Upgrading is, as always, recommended. Visit http://www.usebb.net/downloads/ for downloads. Information about upgrading is available in the docs/index.html document.
With this release, we again like to thank all the people who supported us in the past year, and of course SourceForge.net for hosting downloads and CVS. In the past four months, they have processed another 5,000+ downloads, putting the UseBB 1 download counter at over 25,000 copies.
What concerns the ongoing 2.0 development progress, more info can be found at node/699 and http://dietrich.wordpress.com/tag/usebb-2/. We still appreciate all requests, comments and critiques. What did you like about UseBB 1 and would like to see again or even improved in 2.0? What sucks in UseBB 1? Comments on internal workings and development are welcome as well. Please tell us on the forums!
