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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

    Certainly a massive damage to MyBB. But priorities matter.
    All the best wishes for your future.

    Will be missing you, Shade ...

    Alright, I have to report some jQ deprecations as well, listing, may post soon. For example:
    `main.js`, line 699 `form.submit(function(e) {`
    `.submit()` is deprecated, need to use `form.on('submit', function(e) {`

    Default color stylesheets showing as custom.
    If you click `revert` they get removed from default theme ...

    Also just wanna let you know the sidebar listing scroll is getting freezed even after updating to 2.1.
    Need to go full screen and then restore back to regain functionality of listing vertical scroll.
