It has been awhile since I work on phpBB, the forum script that runs and last 31st May, they released the latest version – 3.0.5 and fixed a long list of bugs.

New features and important changes are:

  • Added and refined CAPTCHA options to better protect against new version of CAPTCHA crackers.
  • Added an option to the registration screen to allow users to refresh the displayed CAPTCHA.
  • Performance improvements for native fulltext search.
  • Added a new search option. The admin can define the maximum number of words allowed to search for. This option gives control about the maximum search load.
  • Search indexing should no longer stall for some installations.
  • Conflicting files are able to be downloaded now within the automatic updater for manual inspection.
  • The database updater now checks for an incompatible database schema in case the database version got updated. The admin will be notified about possible solutions and repair scripts.
  • We now set the connection encoding for MySQL versions 4.1.0 to 4.1.2. This may fix some conversion issues with special characters.
  • Language pack authors now see errors/notices within their language pack if they enabled DEBUG_EXTRA.
  • Flash files now display again after update to flash player 10.

Dear honorable members,

Thank you for the enquiries, SMSes, etc., on what has happen to our forum at, and I am quick to answer you – nothing happen. There is no issue to be discuss and RD is currently undergoing a transformation period.

Transform to what? I am not sure of that too.. But, what I am sure about is – belongs and accessible to all the Internet users (since it is active ONLINE).

How will it look like? No idea.

Where are we heading? This too, I am not sure where we are heading..

How long will it be UNDER TRANSFORMATION? Until things get settled down and when I have the free time to look after it. Do I need help? Yes.. I need people who are good with graphics, php coding, CSS, etc.. and most of all a good public relationship officer, good event organiser, good doers and less talking..

Do I need funding? Tell me what things are free in this world. For every free things you get, there is someone else paying. Give with sincerity and accept it with thanksgiving. If you want to help; help then, or, just sit back and enjoy the free ride.
