Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I announce that I cease all development and activity in the programming universe indefinitely. My career has reached the turning point I was not expecting for at least another year, leaving me highly off guard and without laid-out plans for this hobby's continuity. I have begun a 5-year residency program in Neurosurgery which is clearly not compatible, time-wise, with programming.

I gave in all my passion for developing, and you gave me back your loyalty and trust, even when I did not deserve that much. Now it is the time for payback. I release all my present and past work as Open Source software, in the hope some talented developer will continue maintaining and expanding my vision of a modern, sleek forum software. The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.

I hereby thank Euan, kawaii, andrewjs18, Ben, Matt, Omar G., effone, Eric J., Devilshakerz, Wildcard, JordanMussi and all the other team members I have had the opportunity to work with when I was a MyBB team member. I thank Tomm M, my mentor, who inspired me to pick up coding with his piece-of-art plugins. And finally, I thank all of you MyBBoost subscribers who have helped me getting through my toughest university years economically.

Yours sincerely, Filippo

Front-end teaser... the coupon system had to be built together with the site-wide cart.

This isn't a mock-up, but already a working feature. The to-do list is now limited to 2 things:
  • embed permissions to coupons, so they can be limited to a single attachment/subscription or user/usergroup;
  • JS part to add things to the cart without sending a request to the server every time.

Cart, coupon codes, download logs and buyer's country code have been implemented. Only custom fields required before purchasing left. I'm aiming for a release by tomorrow's evening.

@Shade when to expect cryptos?
Shade 2 Jun 2019
Can't say for certain, although for sure not in the next 1-2 months as I am busy with exams.

This is a fantastic update. One thing, perhaps we could add some more Crypto providers, or even manual purchase verification without an intermediary. Coinbase is becoming increasingly authoritative over who they let use their platform, just as other payment processors have. Hacking/cracking boards as well as others risk being banned, and the owner would probably have their Crypto account closed as well.
