    As part of website updates, these web forums will be replaced this weekend. The current phpBB forum software will be replaced with bbPress.

    The main advantage of this change is better integration with the rest of the website 8). All content and user accounts will be migrated to the new forum, so there should be little or no disruption.

    The current forum will be made read-only after I post this, in preparation for the migration over the weekend.

    The upgrade is 90% complete now – the new forums are live, you can log in, etc.
    One of the nice new features is integrated search – the search box in the menu bar searches forum content as well as “regular” content. The user interface is also integrated, which makes the user experience much more consistent.
    Next step is to clean out really old unused accounts and perhaps archive really old content.
