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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

MyAlerts is now available

28 Jun 2018
@"Euan T"'s brilliant MyAlerts has been adapted during the last couple of months and is now available on MyBBoost. Moderation Alerts Pack 4.0.2 has been installed too so you can be aware of an outstanding 35-pack of events site-wide. You surely won't miss anything about MyBBoost now!

Slight updates to the theme have also been deployed with a brighter color scheme and minor fixes for bugs such as better aligned and colored social login buttons, private threads being shown in profile and fatal errors with the latest posts on index functionality.

After an exam due in 1 week and a half I will adapt MyDropzone 1.2, Hovercards 1.3, Endless beta 1 and the long-awaited new version of ThunderBoard beta 6 to MyBBoost's new theme.
