From the announcement email:
The project has changed considerably since work on its second major release began. With a raft of new features requested by users and new ideas introduced by its developers, phpBB3 is more able than ever to support the new "social networking" trend. Security too has been a top priority with particular attention paid to reduce or eliminate the problems of the past. Indeed unusually for a project of this nature an independent security audit was performed to better ensure a safer future for its users.
So with great pride phpBB wishes to thank all of its developers, designers, team members and of course its community - please enjoy phpBB3.
