Farewell

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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

The mighty return: ThunderBoard is back!

I am extremely pleased to announce that ThunderBoard beta 6 is back on MyBBoost! A renewed and more powerful version has been installed, hopefully stable enough to be released to the public in a reasonable amount of time. The following improvements have been applied:
minified resources, lazy loading for images and asynchronous scripts loading have all been discontinued due to extreme instability and code complexity
pjax has been replaced by the well-maintained TurboLinks with performance benefits as well as more stability
added CSS animations support for page changes

At the same time, Flyover 2.4 has also received an important update and it will be tested alongside ThunderBoard. Flyover now sports an OOP code structure which will allow me to better maintain updates, HybridAuth 3.0 (the new rewritten and more stable version), and a new control panel interface designed specifically for MyBBoost. You can access your panel here.

The respective releases (version 2.0 and beta 6) will be ready once enough feedbacks will be collected.
