More a shout to the site administrators (as opposed to forum administrators). The link to "version 8" in the site's "Features" page (http://www.ubbcentral.com/features.php) leads to a forum page which required me to log into the forum. After I did, I was told that permission was denied.

It is a rare site that publicises an upcoming release, points visitors at a page with the details, then prevents them from seeing those details. Must be a unique marketing approach that I'm not aware of. smile

I can't really speak for the vendor. But what I can say is the version 8 project was stalled due to changes in ownership and the death of one of the primary programmers without any backups.

This caused some back stepping in future releases.

SD has stepped in and recommended to progress in smaller steps.

Meaning version 7.5.7 and possibly a version 7.6.X before we reach version 8.
So I assume that the vendor has removed the version 8 progress from public view due to it is a mute point at this time.

As far as the link you referenced I can only think it was a oversight. And should be corrected.

As months and years have actually gone by without any major version releases, when can we expect 7.6.X or even 7.5.7 to happen?

Well 7.5.7 has happened.
Look in the footer on this page.
It is available in the members area.

I'm aware of reasons for the v8 delay, having tracked it for several years now, and am grateful that SD is making progress on the board (and also grateful that he hasn't made any promises as to release dates; else we'd all be going "Wooosh!" at the appropriate date).

I'm glad that things are rolling through on the underlying foundation of UBBthreads.

When can we expect to see the threads get a new facelift? I remember seeing some slick new graphics when they announced V8.
