Pyragony.

Thanks for the feedback on your experiences.

YaBB still works 'the old way' if you don't have TimeDate.pm.  An admin can choose 'localtime' (server time) or UTC. UTC is now the default.  

However, many Hosting companies do have TimeDate (and its dependencies) as part of the Perl package.

In the past, YaBB never worked correctly unless the server and most of the client connections were in a Time Zone that shifted on the same days each year (like the U.S.). This new code fixes that correctly.  We did remove another Perl hierarchy "Locale::Countries" (which is now a translatable hash for Languages).  

Edited:
We will post the 'installation' instructions for the Perl Packages. It works AOK, but I will agree that 'do it yourself' is tough for beginners (mostly on Linux). The Windows Apache and IIS users are mostly on Active Perl - which has a working PPM that will resolve the dependencies.

Thema Module:

Hello YaBB'ler

Server is not the same server as we have found. To enable time zones, I had to play the following modules to the server and had a whole lot. After all the settings worked without problems. A beginner is therefore likely to have significant problems. The German members I can help, you must do the in the English-speaking. The cost is usually too high for me.

We would be doing it this week but I'm at a hotel on an island this week.
A person working on a Russian Language pack for 2.6.0 pointed out a few issues that didn't show up in English only tests and those fixes are already in the SVN.
  

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!

Hi -

Actually folks, we will likely be releasing in the next 10 days (last two weeks of May).  Dandello and I had a long talk on the project status last week.  At this point, we think we have identified and solved all the issues for YaBB 2.6.0.

We have actually begun the process of planning what the next release will contain and identifying specific areas to work on.

I am about to 'shoehorn/convert' YaBBforum.com to the new release. I may get it done by the weekend. At that point I will also fix the 'Admin Center News'.  That will include a re-formatted Codex in YaBB 2.6 that will be 'living on its own', rather than being entangled with the YaBB Community forum.

The new 'YaBB Communicator' should also be ready to take a bow and come on stage  Wink

THe next project will be resuscitating Boardmod. We have a plan for that as well.

Many thanks to all YaBB's supporters.
Cool

Some more up-to-date info would be nice. Smiley
Anyway, really looking forward to deploying the new software ... one day!

Sorry for the delay - but had to go work away from home (with no internet) for a while. Just tried you link above, and it says the file can't be found Sad

You can download the newest zip at yabb260_build1470.zip

This version does have the DST fix that requires the DateTime, DateTime::TimeZones, and Locale::Countries CPAN modules to work.

I'm also interested in doing some beta testing if needed - just PM me the details and I'll see what I can do Smiley

Especially as I think my forum is after a long needed update due to bugs creeping in here and there (which I can't quite seem to figure out - as a fresh install does the same ... might be my server???).  It's especially weird as YaBB has been the most bug-free (and spam free) forum server I've ever used.  Keep up the good work guys Cheesy

EDIT: Forgot to add, I can give the team accounts and set them up as admins on my server (when up and running) if needs be, including FTP access Smiley
