PHPBB (a popular forum software) has been stuck at version 2.x for a long time now. It has been plagued with many security issues, a long with poor W3C standards.

Version 3 (formally 2.2) which has been running years late is now almost ready for beta testing.

I wonder if this new version will bring phpbb up to standards.

It's light-weight, uses web standards, and is generally a great deal better than the behemoth de facto forum software out there (phpBB, Invision whatever-it's-called, etc.) 1: Comment Link

Also I don't like how they "secure" the software. i.e one user registration per ip address per hour. 2: Comment Link
