YaBB is 5 Years Old Today

It was 5 years ago today that YaBB announced its first public release of the privately coded bulletin board script.  On July 4, 2000, what is now known as YaBB Original Release was published on yabb.ru by Zef Hemel.

Today, YaBB is proud to be the predecessor and inspiration for many systems like Ikonboard, Invision Board, YaBB SE, and Simple Machines Forum.  YaBB was one of the first messaging systems for websites written in the Open Source standard, and probably the first in Perl in the modern non-threaded "forum" style.  It is now one of the few remaining in the Perl language, and certainly the most popular of its type.

While other systems (typically written successfully in PHP with MySQL usage) have surpassed YaBB in website usage and popularity, YaBB has stayed afloat despite its slow development time.  This is largely due to its personal and supportive community now on www.yabbforum.com and its very popular mod program and community at www.boardmod.org.

We invite you to keep your eyes peeled over the next week for some exciting changes to YaBB.  If you've been an active member of our community lately, you'll be able to guess what some of them are.

Celebrate with us on the United States of America Independence day, conveniently also YaBB's 5th birthday.  Half a decade gone by with millions of users.
