June 17th, 2010 marks the 10 year anniversary of the day that phpBB-founder James "theFinn" Atkinson sat down in front of his computer and wrote the first few lines of what would later become phpBB 1.0.0. While others have come and gone, phpBB has survived through an entire decade with 4 development team leaders working with thousands of contributors and millions of users. The PHP Group recently celebrated their own 15 year anniversary, making phpBB one of the longest standing PHP-based projects in existence.
Exactly five years ago, our second Development Team Leader Paul S. Owen noted phpBB's 5 year anniversary by raising a glass. Today, I ask you to raise an aluminum can of your favorite beverage to all those who have made this day possible.
Thanks you for your continuing support,
- The phpBB Team
