YaBB 2 - Release Candidate 3

As recently announced...

The last (planned) Release Candidate of YaBB 2.

YaBB 2 Release Candidate 3 is the last planned RC before a 2.0 official release.

This version marks yet another milestone in the development of YaBB 2. Exactly 4 months from the release of RC 1, we presented RC 2. Now, less than 2 months later, we present RC 3. This version marks a stable point in YaBB 2 development since RC 2. We hope that it is much less buggy and more secure than previous betas of YaBB 2. If all goes well, we will provide an official 2.0 release soon after fixing any problems found in this beta.

While this product is still a BETA, we recommend you convert your YaBB 1 forum to this version to benefit from all of the great features, vast performance improvements, and improved security.

Some of YaBB 2's many great features include:
* File Attachments
