We know that many of you use m2f and have been waiting patiently for the new version to arrive, with the much-needed phpBB3 support. Well, we have good news! m2f 2.0 alpha 4 released
The m2f development team are delighted to announce the immediate availability of Alpha release 2.0.0a4. This is an alpha-quality build of the forthcoming v2.0 release, which will see the transformation of m2f from a simple phpBB -> email link into a multi-faceted message hub. Some features already implemented:
* Basic Mail to Forum using POP3, SMTP, Sendmail, mbox, phpBB2 and phpBB3
* Some basic channels like FileWriter (Export), Random Text Generator (Import)
* Basic RSS Feed import to any functional export channel (SMTP, phpBBx, FileWriter).
* HOT! Forum mirroring! Watch phpBB2 and phpBB3 talk together.
* Basic Admin Control Panel
* Message threading

I did a hell of a cleanup in our different information spaces:
* Reactivated the m2f wiki as READ-ONLY. This site has some good information for m2f 1.2, although some of it is outdated. It has been hammered a lot by spammers though, and maintenance was a pain, so I just turned it back on READ-ONLY.
* Added and polished several sections of the 2.0 development page. Be sure to check out the new m2f 2.0 design and the m2f 2.0 threading uses cases pages.
* Cleaned up and updated the announcements in the v1.2 and v2.0 development forums with download, install, etc. instructions (Note that v2.0 developers forum is accessible only for users in the developers group).
* Did other smaller housekeeping tasks.
