Happy 2020, or Welcome to the new decade!

Congrats to all survivors in 2020 — welcome to the start of a new decade, and Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2020

Despite the Chinese Year of the Rat is going to start officially only in about 23 days (since today), most probably the major part of the world already started to celebrate it (including me — the party looks similar to the picture above :) ).

It's a good animal to be minimal, so miniBB, hopefully, is going to be continued in 2020. The major change in the upcoming version I am working out now, will be the authorization mechanism. We finally should leave the outdated MD5-passwords, changing them to something more secured. I'll also try to follow my little plan, extending the basic version with some more features, and providing bug fixes.

Besides of it, and I wish this to myself and everyone around, here's another plan of changes in 2020:
- Eat Less — Move More

— Drink Even Less Alcohol, or Stop It At All

— Consume Less — Optimize Expenses, in Result: Work Less

— Take Care of Yourself — Spend More Time with Family

— Start Something New to Learn or Implement

— Code with Passion!
Stay tuned with miniBB, and spread your wish here if you'd like it to come true :)

Happy New Year to Paul and the readers. I hope the Rat will finally bring some much needed change for the better.

Tip to protect from offline scams - when writing checks or dates on documents, make sure to use 4 digits, like: 08/24/2020 (not 08/24/20) because it would be possible for bad people to make the hear 20XX out of your 20 ; )

It's only what you make it to be — myself I've launched 2 new businesses, where I had to cancel one of them, but the other one, Butikkene, is slowly gaining momentum. Looking forward to partaking in this forum and seeing how miniBB can add value to my company. And along the way help developing myself and others as business owners. Cheers, Thomas from Norway

Well congratulated. 2020 proved it all )) looking at the picture, I felt like this almost every second of this madly fucking year.

How about the new passwords implementation? Do you follow your plan, Paul?

The plan has been changed a bit... Despite the current auth mechanism is a bit primitive and surely not secured from the academic point of view, this software still doesn't ask for keeping a lot of personal information, and your profile is mostly about keeping some posts in a certain order. Also, by now I didn't get reports that someone's profile was hacked or stolen exactly because it was being in MD5.

So, I will leave it for further development (of let's say something like miniBB 4.0), but the current plans are more pragmatic. I have a couple of new security-related and content-organizing add-ons, which require some change in a core; we also have new mySQL databases with extended structure, which also should be used by miniBB, and we have newer PHP versions, which are ways not compatible with the current package.

And my goal is quite simple: miniBB 3.5 will contain just a lot of fixes and updates collected within 10 months, for being compatible and stable for the world surrounding it currently. I'll leave the authorization routines and layout improvements for further versions, this all requires a lot of concentration, which is better to spend to more practical things by now.

Still in the building :-) Honestly speaking, I didn't see much difference or change between 2020 and 2021, all that shit seems to be continued, so let's congratulate each other when we finally drop off the COVID-19.
