Hi All

what is the status of NewsSync, is there a phpBB3 version, will there be a phpBB3 version?

If not, does anyone have the latest source so i can look at porting it to phpBB3 and adding spamassasin support to it?

Newssync is currently up to 1.5.2 with 1.5.3 pending release later this month.

The last publically available version was 1.5.0 - Release Candidate 6 and is no longer available at the original author's site. Also this version has a weakness that can be exploited where this mod is used with a phpbb nuke site (see earlier in the thread)

We have no current plans to port this to PHPBB3 as we are not moving our site to the PHPBB3 version of the software..

JLA has their own version which they appear to have done some work on which no one else has access to. I don't think it has anything to do with them if you want to port it. The orginal author seems to have totally abandoned it.

If you want the last original release get in touch... It would be great to have it adapted for phpbb3 especially if the result was publicly available...

I'd be happy to contribute to such a project in any way I can...beta testing, etc. I believe JLA has been developing this as a pay project, and using the forums as a launching pad for this, so you are unlikely to ever see anything beyond the original version. I, too, may have one kicking around somewhere, if it is needed.

Please keep me posted!

Hi

Ok, it looks like some people are interested in this, so i guess i should look into it.

I am in the process of converting some scripts that i wrote for phpBB2 so the will work on phpBB3 (eg. user intergration). This will help me understand phpBB3 but will take a few weeks.

Targets;
1. Get working as is with phpBB3.
2. Summary emails with Recieved / Sent posts (so you can check for spam).
3. Use of spamassasin to filter spam posts.
4. Other as requested by phpBB community.

Regards Puggs.

ps. Forum Mod, maybe this should be slit off into the phpBB3 Mod Dev Area.

You might want just want to start your own phpbb3 newssync topic in the phpbb3 sections. That way any support and possible future development discussion for the phpbb2 version can continue on in this thread.

We at present have no plans to offer our version of newssync as a pay project. We have released version 1.5.2 to a release group of some handpicked testers/sites. We are willing to provide some support of the last pubic release in this thread for Windows users only and other platforms in sections of the code where the OS is not relevant. At some point in time we might choose to release a future version of newssync beyond our release group to the general public.
