I confess to exaggerating, but only slightly. Give a look at the various Olympus CVS stats for the hard data on the active developers. (These developers work both Olympus and the current stable release.) You'll see that the bulk of the work has been done off and on by two people.

I remember in early 2004 then were basically saying DEFINITELY BEFORE THE YEAR END. God knows what they were saying before then.

It's gonna be 2006 soon enough :(

Ah well... as long as it's worth the wait, I guess.

A team member has stated 'this year'. (Possibly slightly paraphrased).

Team members also said before 2005 as well. Things happen. Real life happens. Delays are inevetable. The software is great, and it's free. What more can you ask for.

At least 2 forks have already been made.

With the announcement of the security audit for phpbb 2, I doubt we'll see a phpbb 3 release this year. :(

With this announcement I want to give you some more information regarding phpBB's security. psoTFX (Paul S. Owen, Project Manager) initiated and brought forward the idea and concept of a complete security audit of the 2.0.x codebase. We introduced some top-notch security people, phpBB-Modders and very talented people from our teams to participate in this audit. We intend to implement the changes necessary - and also fixing the found issues, hopefully giving the now very aged codebase (it is still on a technical level from three years ago) a lift and bringing it up-to-date with security mechanisms and techniques which are common nowadays.
Therefore I think the 3.0 developers are not partaking majorly in this.
