YaBB 2.0 Pre-Release

YaBB 2.0 Pre-Release

This is the FINAL beta build of YaBB 2.0. Yes, you heard it right!

What is a Pre-Release? Well, to us it is the version that comes out right before the stable (official) release - a.k.a. the last beta. 4 months from the release of RC 1 we presented RC 2, less than 2 months later we presented RC 3, and now we present the final chapter in just under 3 months. This version marks a stable point in YaBB 2 development since RC 3. The next release WILL be YaBB 2.0!!!

Note - if you are using a previous version of YaBB 2 Beta (this excludes any version of YaBB 1), please make sure you change the Perl path in FixFile.pl, set execute permissions on it, and execute it in the same folder as YaBB.pl AFTER uploading all necessary files but BEFORE testing your upgraded forum.
