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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

New theme up and running

19 Dec 2015
I've found some spare time to dedicate to the development of the front-end version of Whisper and this is the early result. Please note that many things are still unthemed and need to be edited, but my free time will be nearly zero in the next couple of months so the theme will stay as-is for a while. Do not report any styling errors for the moment, but if you encounter functional issues – can't update options, can't subscribe, or similar – please report it as soon as possible.

Please leave a feedback by posting a new reply to this announcement if you want to share your opinions, which as always are highly appreciated.

I've started to develop a new shiny theme for MyBBoost with advanced features and cleaner layout. Here are some previews:

It'll be ready once I finish my exams.
