phpBB 3.0 released

How exciting! phpBB 3.0 has just been released.

For those who don’t know, phpBB is forum software written for PHP and MySQL.

I’ve really liked phpBB 2.x, despite its security flaws, and its lack of support for modular-style modifications.

Looks like phpBB 3.0 has dealt with both of those issues; they even got an external security firm in to check its security features — I love the attention to detail.

Looking forward to installing it and checking it out; and to OpenSourceCMS installing it (they’re currently on 2.0.22).

Drupal, phpBB and WordPress

Here’s an interesting find. I did a search on Amazon for Drupal and found this yet-to-be-published book, from APress:

Building Online Communities with Drupal, phpBB, and WordPress, by Robert T. Douglass, Mike Little and Jared W. Smith (APress, November 2005, ISBN 1-59059-562-9).

(The hyperlinks point to the Apress website, not Amazon UK.)

Two technologies that I already use (phpBB and WordPress) and one that I’d like to learn more about (Drupal).
