I finally got to release v0.30. That certainly took a while

Featuring:

- A lot of bugfixes
- A new installer
- RPG System lifted directly from AB 1.92 (which was a pretty painful experience due to code differences)
- Things that look more like what you'd see here.
- XSS Protection that isn't an absolute joke
- more misc stuff

If it weren't for the lack of certain details, I'd have considered this v1.0. It's getting closer though.

I don't think that's a valid reason to remove it. Putting a disclaimer in the README would be fine. Redirect people to the releases page on GitHub.

If they start complaining their development build isn't production ready, give them a link to Webster's Dictionary (or a software equivalent).

I would still like to help with development, and I think GitHub is nice because I can make PRs whenever I want to.

Worst case just do something ridiculous like a release branch with a single file added (that remains the only difference) and if the file is missing the software complains that it's a development version and you're on your own.

github is good

Actually, I've been thinking to either remove or not update the repository for a while. I choose to remove it since it bugged me to leave it outdated.

I thought about this since I've realized some people were using an insanely buggy version despite warnings that it's a prerelease (and then others there complained about the bugs / incompleteness). For the longest time (read: slightly more than month), when a certain user said "using this software", I took that as "installed it on a test location" - when I realized it wasn't the case it hit motivation quite a bit for several reasons.

Maybe the github repository will come back in the future, maybe not (I'm still updating the local git in case it comes back). For now, a "solid" 1.0 release is (hopefully) coming soon, and bug reports (for now) go in this thread.

(there is also a thing about not giving the firewall in the github version - which broke several queries and required a bunch of messy checks. I'd have a "distributable" version without any of that mess, along with the removal of some other silly stuff that doesn't make sense to include in a non-internal version (hi $hacks['force-modern-web-design'];). I mean, I could have done a separate branch, but heh.

What did the Firewall do? Was it for blocking banned IPs?

Edit: Blargboard's doesn't contain anything interesting.

It's a file that provides extra security and handles some extra features.

and no, it's not the one from Blargboard

Really neat. Fiddling around with a quick 1.0 install. Found a bug though. The regex on line 130 of register.php has an unescaped forward slash, causing registrations to fail with "Your username contains invalid characters." even on valid usernames.

If I had any motivation to try to run a community again I'd consider using BoardC. Modern board software really isn't my thing.

oopsies

1.0a should fix it (as well as a related issue caused by using a different regex check when editing an username and an unrelated broken query in online.php)
