Yesterday marked the 7th birthday of phpBB and finally the team announced the release date of the long awaited phpBB3. It will be released on the 14th December 2007 01:00 (GMT +8) or 13th December 2007 17:00 (GMT).

I think it is a little too late, I have switched from phpBB2 to SMF 1.1 and now I am a happy user of SMF.
