|AtomBB is a forum software project that was founded in 2012 which is currently developed by @Azareal and it currently has the goal of being the most innovative and most feature packed in the free forum market (and possibly even the entirety of the forum market).|
AtomBB was originally (alright, alright. There were incarnations of AtomBB led by different people before 2012, but the domain expired, so here we are now) written in PHP5.2, however in 2013.. We decided that we wanted to use many of the powerful features available in PHP 5.3 (not to mention, we wanted to get away from a certain infamous security exploit in PHP 5.2 that we didn't want to worry about).
At the time, PHP 5.3 had around about 50% market-share. Possibly less. We decided that the gains of PHP 5.3 would vastly outweight the larger market-share that supporting PHP 5.2 would give us access to.
In early 2014, we unveiled the first AtomBB Alpha, while a revamp of the previously incredibly simple theme resulted in the new version of Slate in mid-2014.
In early 2015, the second default AtomBB Theme called Cosmo was unveiled.
There are plans to release the second alpha of AtomBB relatively soon.
