Thank you for your answer and respect for your commitment.
Unfortunately, this phrase (UBB 8 is nearly done...) already has a very long beard.
I have now paid more money to Extended Support to my provider, than to the UBB licenses.
My deadline is set: If no PHP 8-capable UBB release is available by December 31, 2023, I will shut down my forum with over 10,000 registered users. My forum users are already informed about this. Someone has already reported who might write a migration script to migrate UBB to another software, that would be okay for me too.
What - for my value system - doesn't work at all is offering a commercial product, continuing to sell annual licenses, but since release 20201027 - that's 3 YEARS in 5 weeks - no more updates available. On top of that, the ominous new Release 8 has been announced for ages, but there's nothing except hot air. This is - in my opinion - fooling the customers. Others may see it differently, but I think many share my opinion, you are burying your product with your eyes wide open.
