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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

Quick mentions for users

A similar interface to QuickReferences 1.2 has been added to MyBBoost, except for the backend processing which was already available thanks to devilshakerz's DVZ Mentions. The dropdown is triggered by the character "@". The uid is shown but it will be hidden in the near future. This will not be released as a plugin nor as an extension to QuickReference or DVZ Mentions. At the moment, being without a notification system, it's not as useful as it could be but given MyAlerts will be surely installed it is undoubtedly a great starting point.

Really nice. Hope you will consider/be able to release it as an extension to MyAlerts someday. :)
