    I have no idea. Here's an overview.

    The developers are working hard on YaBB 2. There are many major changes coming. You can see some of them by using this forum regularly, as we regularly update to development code here.

    Just a few of the changes coming in the next release of YaBB 2 include:
    - new error handling methods with full language strings and a separate error.lng
    - more friendly errors
    - emails split into emails.lng for easy editing
    - optimization of languages
    - RSS functionality in all boards to provide a newsfeed link
    - encrypted usernames for security
    - rearrangement of code for speed
    - login with display name or email address too
    - Skype setting in profile
    - required to make display name different than username
    - more XHTML compliance
    - email editor
    - admin ability to set default profile options
    - PM buddylist

    All that being said, we need your thoughts on progress. There are two ways to help. You can follow CVS code on Sourceforge and bug test it like crazy. You can also test this forum.

    Thanks and happy YaBBing!
