  1. Hmm.. thnx but what about 1.8? You said: “We’re aiming to provide a beta of 1.8 in May”…

    • @Maj – That’s what we were aiming for at the time and this is why we don’t make promises about release dates. Keep checking the blog regularly and you’ll find more information regarding 1.8.

  2. Another awesome new, i have to update now, jeje. Well i´m ever put the latest version on my forum to probe MyBB it’s great. Cheers.

  3. Thanks for new version. How about Merge System?
    “NOTE: After this release the merge system will jump to match MyBB’s version. So when MyBB 1.6.7 is released, MyBB Merge System 1.6.7 will be released with it. We’re going to try very hard to use that scheme from now on.”

  4. I want to thank you for the efforts that went into 1.68. Like all the previous updates over the years, this was flawless.

    I love mybb! It is the best free software on the planet!
