Guess what? The 3rd and last Beta version of MyBB 1.8 is out! After this version (unless something very bad or unexpected happens), we’re rolling out 1.8.0 Stable/Gold for all of you. We need your help testing Beta 3 though so we can release 1.8.0 as stable as possible.

Upgrade

You are NOT supposed to upgrade any 1.6 boards to 1.8 Beta 3 hence why we do not provide upgrading instructions. This is because you will not be able to upgrade from any of the Betas to 1.8. While we’ve done some work on the upgrader to guarantee that users no longer experience errors, this hasn’t been tested thoroughly. This is our number one priority in the next development phase.

 

Bug Reports

Found a bug? (or perhaps a few more…) Please post your detailed bug report in the 1.8 Bug Reports forum.

Please always double-check if the issue hasn’t been reported already.

 

Themes and Plugins Assistance

If you have any development questions about possible issues you may have while upgrading your themes or your plugins – or issues you may actually be having – please post in this forum.

 

Contributors

We’d like to thank the following contributors, they have been exceptional during the 1.8 development:

They have created many Pull Requests, they helped us out solving bugs and finishing features and took part in many discussions on GitHub. MyBB is no longer a product developed by the team only, but by the community as well.

If you want to help us out and become a Contributor, be sure to read this blog post. If you’d rather join the team, feel free to contact us through Private Inquires.

MyBB Merge System 1.6.14

MyBB Merge System for 1.6.14 is now available from the MyBB website and is a maintenance update to the MyBB Merge 1.6 series.

What’s new in this version?

  • 10 bug fixes (View all)
  • Version jump to 1.6.14

Unfixed issues

Future development

We decided that 1.6.14 will be the last update for the MyBB Merge 1.6 series. At the moment everyone on the team is working on 1.8 so the next Merge Release will be after the gold release of 1.8.

How to help?

We moved the merge system to GitHub so everyone is able to help us with the development.
But even if you can’t help us with the code, you can still send us your database so we can test our modules with different databases.

MyBB 1.8 Beta 2 Released

Upgrade

You are NOT supposed to upgrade any 1.6 boards to 1.8 Beta 2 hence why we do not provide upgrading instructions. This is because you will not be able to upgrade from any of the Betas to 1.8 AND because the upgrader is not working yet (right…so you try it and it won’t work anyway and you will definitely break your board. So DON’T DO IT!).

 

Bug Reports

Found a bug? (or perhaps a few more…) Please post your detailed bug report in the 1.8 Bug Reports forum.

If you have any development questions about possible issues you may have while upgrading your themes or your plugins – or issues you may actually be having – please post in this forum.

 

What’s next?

Work will now be moved to Beta 3 so we can release 1.8 gold/stable this summer as planned. Meanwhile, 2.0 development meetings have started so we can start working on 2.0 full time as soon as 1.8 hits stable.

The MyBB Group

Getting Involved: Contributors

It’s been a while since we announced the contributors group – we’ve had quite a few pages of discussion about it since then, some of us came up with ideas in order to promote it, and some came up with problems that would come out of those ideas. We’ve finally come to an agreement!

 

What is the Contributors Usergroup?

This is the MyBB Group’s recognition of your valued contributions to the project. We feel that the people in the Contributors usergroup are the main figures in the community that drive the project forward. Getting in is a matter of invitation not request and exceptions will not be made to this.

 

I’ve done contributing but I haven’t been added, what’s going on?

The MyBB Group assesses who we feel should be in the Contributor group on a per user basis. You may have had lots of Pull Requests merged or submitted plugins/themes to the Mods Site and not been added, this could be a mixture of reasons: 1) We’ve not got around to adding you; 2) We don’t feel you have contributed enough given the quality of your Pull Requests; 3) We haven’t noticed – we are all volunteers and some things slip through the net. If you feel strongly that you should be in this group then contact one of our Community Team members and they would be pleased to talk to you about the circumstances of you not being in the group.

 

I was in the Contributors group but now I’m not, did I blink and miss something?

Places in the Contributors group are for those that the MyBB group feels are active contributors towards the project. If you stop making good quality Pull Requests/plugins/themes or stop being involved in conversations after a good period of time, you may be removed at the discretion of the MyBB group. This group is in place so that the community can help MyBB evolve, if you’re not doing this then you’re not fulfilling the ‘job description’ of the group.

 

Requirements

  • You have a past of good development (Plugins, Pull Requests, Tutorials)
  • You submit five pull requests that are accepted to MyBB codebase.
  • You submit ten pull requests that are accepted to the docs.

 

By meeting at least one of the requirements above you will be moved to the Contributors group – you’ll have a badge next to your username on your profile and posts.

Besides that, you’ll be able to participate the 1.8 Discussion forum and at a later point, 2.0 Discussion.

If you do not meet any of the requirements yet we recommend you to look at our Workflow and change that!

Team Changes and Moving Forward

With the release of MyBB 1.6.13, the team felt there was a need to address some issues that affect the future of the Project, the Community and the Team in general.

Developers and MyBB Development Workflow

With the departure of Nathan and Tomm, MyBB has once again found itself in need of active team members. This, along with the unavailability of most current developers due to time constraints caused by life issues, led to us breaking our workflow, which as you may have noticed ended up delaying the release of MyBB 1.6.13. After MyBB 1.6.13 was out, work on 1.8 Beta 1 has been resumed (and you can clearly see that by examining the commits made for on github in the ‘feature’ branch).

Moving forward with 2.0.

Initially 1.6 was supposed to lead to 2.0 directly, but with the team feeling that 2.0 was still in very early development, MyBB would lose to its competitors for quite a bit of time (the development time of 2.0). Thus, work was put into “modernizing” the look and feel of 1.6 before the complete rewrite, and so 1.8 was born. As anticipated, this has delayed work on 2.0 of course. Once 1.8 is released (Beta 1 is nearing its completion; at time of writing only one feature is left to finish: jQuery conversion; all the other open issues aimed for Beta 1 are bugs) work will start on 2.0. There has been a lot of talk of MyBB being a “dead project”, but this is very far from the truth. As an open source project, as long as we have active developers, the project will never be “dead”. But we need the community’s help – we’ve been helping you for a long time, we’re asking you to help us now  – so if you feel that you know MyBB pretty well but most of all, if you feel that you have value to give to the team and project, contact us!

Changes that we are implementing now

It became apparent to us, that one of the major problems we have had was losing key team leaders. As you may remember, we recently got rid of the “Team Leader” role, and went with a more equal structure. This did not promote (as we had intended) productivity. So we have come up with a new system, whereby developers will take turns taking the “lead” on a per version basis. This will keep them all updated with the procedures required to package and release new versions. We are pleased to announce the Stefan T will be assuming the role of Lead Developer first and and the next should be Pirata Nervo (after that a new internal poll will be made). We are also pleased to announce that King Louis will be assuming the position of SQA team lead (the leader here doesn’t change as we believe the SQA team requires a static leader).

Recruitment

As mentioned above, we are now looking for more active members for both Development, Support, and more importantly SQA (we’re running low here!).  If you feel that you would be a good addition to the team, why not submit some pull requests on Github and/or drop an application to using the contact form, posting a thread in Private Inquiries (recommended) or even by PM’ing us.  You cand read more about the responsibilities here. Do not be afraid of contacting us, we won’t bite you – but we’ll be always be honest with you.

An Exciting New Future

Disclaimer: look at the date this was posted

Following Facebook’s acquisition of the Oculus Rift, the popular Virtual Reality headset crowdfunded by Kickstarter, officials from Facebook contacted us with a similar proposal: purchasing MyBB and developing it into a more full, fun, and professional project.  Today, we is pleased to announce that for $3.4 million, Facebook has acquired MyBB.

What does this mean for MyBB?

MyBB 1.8 will continue as scheduled, being the last of the 1.x series. It will have many new features integrated, such as chat, Facebook log in integration, etc. MyBB 2.0, however, will get an exciting new rewrite and a set release date of April 1, 2015.

The new codebase

What we’re most excited about is the code. No longer hundreds of thousands of lines long, the MyBB code on your server will shrink down to a simple interface that pings Facebook’s API to gather all the information needed. All forum data will be hosted on Facebook’s servers, offering a secure and fast platform for the database. Your forum’s database will seamlessly upload during the upgrade from 1.8 -> 2.0. The code on your server will remain LGPL as in the 1.x series, combining with Facebook’s server side code for a unique blend of open source and proprietary that will allow for the most modern, fast, and advanced social community software.

Users & Profiles

Another thing we’re excited for is user integration. No longer will your users need to remember long, complex passwords, as they will be able to login and register via their Facebook account. This will be the only login method, and your user’s data will be merged with Facebook during the upgrade process. The upgrade will auto-detect existing Facebook accounts based on email and merge them together. The profile page on your MyBB install will pull information directly from Facebook! No more is the need to upload avatars or change bios or locations, all will be integrated directly.

Messaging

Because we’ll be using Facebook accounts for your standard MyBB account, the opportunity for using Facebook’s messaging system is wide open. All members who have messaged each other on MyBB will automatically be made Facebook friends and will be able to carry out their discussion in the way so many members of the community have been asking for: conversation style.

Forums & Posts

Posts will take on the style of a Facebook post, with replies appearing as comments. This will allow us to utilize Facebook’s comment history and like features. Images will become the only form of attachments, and will display inline just like in a Facebook comment!

Mobile Access

This feature makes us especially happy: any MyBB forum will be accessible via the Facebook iOS or Android app! There will be no more need for a mobile MyBB theme or plugin, as the Facebook app will handle it all.

Additional Features

Mass emails will no longer require a mail server, but will send as a group message via Facebook. Facebook style notifications will also be on your forum, as well as the ability for members to create and moderate their own groups. Best of all, however, your new forum will be browsable by Oculus Rift.

We’re excited as a team for this new opportunity and have more exciting announcements for you in the near future!

… April Fools!

A farewell to Tom Moore

It’s with great sadness that I have to announce Tom Moore (Tomm M on the community forums) has decided to depart from the MyBB Team.

Since joining the dev team in 2009, Tom has been at the forefront of MyBB development, even more so after the departure of Ryan Gordon. Having led the 1.6 series throughout its life, fixing countless bugs and issues, and putting his ideas and talent in to 1.8, MyBB today lies upon Tom’s vision and hard work. His dedication and will has been undeniable and we wish him the best for the future, and with whatever comes next.

What does this mean for MyBB?

While it’s sad to see such a talented developer leave the team, it’s often something which is expected with open source software. We believe that even though we no longer have Tom, there will always be developers out there willing to carry on his vision and continue to bring MyBB to the people. We’re very excited to see what comes next for MyBB, and we hope you are too.

A message from Tom to all…

To all at MyBB,

It’s with a heavy heart that I’ll be departing from the MyBB Team who, in every respect, has been more of a family over the last 5 years. We’ve fought, argued and definitely fallen out more than a few times but a single aim has always been at the front of thinking for every team member (past and present): to create the best free forum software for your community.

This niche software industry, which many thought would be swallowed by social networks, is thriving with seemingly new competitors every week. Each with their own gimmick, of course. But they often fail where MyBB succeeds due to 3 basic principles that haven’t changed in its 10 year history: extensibility, ease of use and functionality.

It’s inevitable that MyBB must change for the modern user, and you shouldn’t fear this, as by following these principles and focusing on putting great content at the heart of the software can only mean another great product from one of the most talented teams I’ve had the privilege to be a part of. The future of this forum software is exciting and I can’t wait for everyone to (eventually!) use it.

I wish you and your communities the very best of luck.

- Tomm
