It is not clear, which direction will be taken for the next 10 years.
Pentacle In/Out Board has a long history. We started it in 2005. So it is fifteen years old now.
We did have a plan to move it from a single installation to be a service. The existing service we running is on the FreeInOutBoard.com
I would like to establish a new premium service. It will allow you to move your data from a local installation to this new online service. After that, you don't have to take care of your server, updates etc. Just let up to look after it. All you need is to enjoy the service.
I am not sure if this plan works. I also need your input about it. Please send me your idea and we will consider it when we add the features.
I am happy to announce that new Pentacle In Out Board 19.12 released.
The version number is bumped to v184.108.40.20608 for Pentacle InOut Board Free version.
For the Commercial version, it is 220.127.116.1108.
If your installation is v10.03, you should find the upgrade package here.
Now we redesigned the new password generator. Some new features below:
- Password length
- Password Strength
- Click the password to your clipboard
It is a new design with new templates. We just upgraded our news system.
Make our news looks much better on mobile devices.
Now, we are working as a co-author of phpBB Language pack.
Since we do have a forum powered by phpBB 3.1.6 in Chinese, and no active Simplified Chinese language author working on it. David Yin thinked about to join the translating project of Chinese.
After the original author of Chinese approval, here is the new release of it.
It is a maintainance update. Since last update, it is about two years. Now we fixed the data retriving facility.
And updated the way to do the prediction.
It will be a huge change from ASP to PHP.
ASP is kind of retired program language. PHP is so active.
The PHP version of Pentacle In-Out Board features:
1) Convert mdb database file to MySQL database
2) Remain all current features
3) Add mobile skin.
1) Chinese New Year is Jan 31, 2014.
2) Effective from Feb 4, 2014, Year of Horse is coming.
Now we have a new official site. New design with HTML5 and CSS3.
It is also a responsive design. Compatible with Desktop, pad, and smartphone.
We are planning to develop new version of our Pentacle In-Out Board system.
There are about two years after our last release.
Everything is Open. There are no limit before we froze the features.
The general ideal is to switch from ASP to PHP.
