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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

Today I am glad to announce that you can now post attachments from quick reply. MyDropzone preview has been powered up to support quick reply which is undoubtedly a great enhancement to the plugin, which is going to be released very soon to our premium subscribers.

I take this opportunity to officially announce that subscriptions have been restored and you can now purchase a Gold, Silver or Bronze subscription from your control panel. Once MyChat preview will be released, things will get sneaky as silver and bronze will be deprecated in favor of a unique lifetime subscription worth 30€, in addition to the chance of purchasing specific plugins at a lower price (for example, Flyover 2.4 and MyChat preview at 15€, Drafts AutoSave 1.1 at 10€ and so on).
