PunBB 1.3 Beta Preview

For all PunBB fans, PunBB 1.3 beta is already available. Few days ago, I the beta , did a fresh install, and I believe that the coming 1.3 will be MUCH better. Currently, the latest stable release is 1.2.17 (released on February 19th, 2008). Here is a :

So, what's new? Here are some of them:

  • New user interface. The new has a fresh look. Compared to 1.2.*, the new design still has solid border around, but it is lighter now.
  • /ATOM is available by default. We do not need hacks or modification anymore. And, we can have RSS for main board (globally), forums and also topics.
  • It's very easy to have better search engine friendly , and there are some permalink structure options available.
  • Menus at the administration panel has a better organization. For example, if it's user-related, we click on the “Users” tab, and the sub-menu (secondary menu) is available below it.
  • For more details, go to PunBB 1.3 beta talk forum.

If you want to try it, just download and install it (The zipped format is only 315Kb). But, if you only want to try the new , there is PunBB 1.3 Beta demo site. This demo grabs the fresh source every 6 hours. You can login as “admin” or normal “user”.

Sepertinya untuk fitur send message sesama anggota memang sudah bisa deh. Tapi, istilahnya memnag “Send Email”, tapi ini bisa langsung dari interfacenya.
Kalau “Private Message”, ada kok Plugins-nya.
