    vB3 Status Update - March 17, 2003

    Here is an update on the status of vB3 development.

    Private Beta Test

    A private beta test for vB3 began on February 26, 2003. In all we received 650 applications, out of which 20 members were chosen to participate in this beta test. The beta-testers represent a good cross section of high-traffic sites, low-traffic sites, sites with a diverse range of users, a diverse range of server configuration, etc. The sites chosen were done so based on the previously determined criteria of the Development Team and no one was chosen for personal decisions. In addition, the beta testers are operationg under strict conditions of use, one of which is that they are not allowed to modify any of the PHP files in any way (ie: no hacking).

    Currently this program is providing excellent feedback that is allowing us to identify and resolve bugs in the software.

    vB3 Bugs

    Bugs identified and fixed in the private beta test: 70

    Total bugs still unresolved: 11

    Major Currently Unresolved Bugs:
    • Login Issues
    • WYSIWYG parsing issues (bbcode parsing problem)
    • Multiple email notifications

    Still To Do / Be Completed:

    The Development Team is working very hard to prepare vB3 for a public beta release as quickly as possible. We will publish additional updates as more information becomes available.

    Mankind is the only creature smart enough to know its own history, and dumb enough to ignore it.
