[YaBB Release] YaBB 2.5.2 - First in two years!

Print Post  
YaBB is back today with release version 2.5.2.  This is the first official YaBB release in more than two years.  Much work has been done on the "future" of YaBB which is not quite ready, but this 2.5.2 release provides many bug fixes and additional features, primarily spam-fighting tools.  Please celebrate with us, as we begin to bring some life back into Yet another Bulletin Board.

2.5.2 is dedicated to the memory of Ron Hartendorp, AKA Spikecity. His work on past YaBB software versions and his help to the YaBB Community will be sorely missed. Our thoughts are with his loved ones and friends. He left the world too soon.
