Big forum software related news out of the phpBB and Microsoft camps. [phpbb.com...]

The phpBB Team was recently approached by Microsoft and asked to develop a bulletin board system for their .NET platform. This board will power their MSDN Social network and will be released to the community under a freeware license for smaller boards, with commercial licensing options available for larger communities.

the phpBB Group is being renamed to ASPbb Incorporated

phpBB 3.0.7 has already been ported to ASP.NET and phpBB.com has actually been using it for the past several hours (urls are being rewritten to .php files to maintain bookmarks and search engine ranking).

I love open source software since I rather enjoy making the changes I want to it and I think this is a fantastic move for both companies involved (and for us, more FREE forum options inc.)
