In a new effort to reduce early and often, the YaBB Team is proud to announce version 2.2.2 of the popular Yet another Bulletin Board forum system.  Still written in the Perl language, this system is one of the most secure and reliable message boards in existence.  Trust the open source project that has been around for 8 years!

This release contains several bug fixes, performance improvements, and layout improvements reported as issues by users of YaBB 2.2.1.  It is not considered a critical update, but as always, upgrading is easy and recommended.

All mods installed without problem using BoardMod as well other than the Custom Page Mod.  In my view it is a terribly written one and I had to install it manually.

Hi Kevin

I see you were there.  Just added another one:

18. Advanced Email Notification Mod

Now all I need is the long awaited Event Calendar/Birthday Mod  and the old ChatIRC Mods from 2.1  Grin

Oh, and of course any other Mods that our writers can come up with that may be suitable.  Roll Eyes

I think the Event Calendar mod may be a while as it may be a major re-write
