    I've just been informed by RidingMyCarousel on my Hailboard that the project has been discontinued completely. You can get more info in the Comms thread at Phatooine [link=http://phatooine.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=12400]here[/link]. Personally, I've always loved the project and am disappointed that it's closing... as far as my forum goes, I don't know what we're going to do.

    Thanks to the developers for doing what they've done. I think it was a great run. :)

    Hmm, sorry to hear about that and it looks like their main site can't be accessed right now either. Thanks for the news - there are lots of board system conversion tools out there you may look into if you plan to migrate to a new one. :)

    Yeah, I was really disappointed to hear this as well. Those guys put a lot of hard work into that project and it's a shame to see them stop. I loved hB. :(

    It's not dead yet. The 1.4 version is being worked on now. I can't say much about it at this point, but I will say that it is *much* improved.

    Agreed. I think we've eliminated a lot of the glaring problems with the system.

    The 1.4 version in progress is coming out to be alot more JC/IGNboards like than previous versions in many ways.

    A couple screenshots from the 1.3.M2-2007-3-18 build:
