Download of the day: phpBB version 3 ( phpBB Gold )

phpBB final version 3 has been released and available for download. phpBB is a popular Internet forum package written in the PHP programming language.

New Features in phpBB3

* Modular design for the Admin Control Panel, Moderator Control Panel, and User Control Panel.
* Support for multiple database management systems, including MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL, SQLite, and Firebird.
* Support for unlimited levels of subforums.
* Ability to create custom-defined BBCode.
* Ability to create custom profile fields.
* Greatly expanded permissions system.

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.

    Is it just me, or the sheer number of vulnerabilities related to phpBB v2 (and specially all it’s mods) make me think twice before considering using it?

    For instance, looking at secunia database: – 119 advisories vs – 4.

    Yes, phpBB v3 seems to be on the right track, but i would definitely keep an eye out for any nasty surprises…
