Does MyBB have future?
Remember those developers you were going to get to contribute to MyBB 1.9? Yeah, so do I. I've yet to see any contribution from them whatsoever...

It's always nice to see complaints, definitely makes the team feel even more inclined to pour their free time into something for no reward.

1.8.20 is currently in a pre-release state, and should be released this week unless something goes horribly wrong when we update the community forums.

The new theme for 1.9.0 is almost complete now and should be merged within a week of 1.8.20 being released.

I know we're slow. Everybody else on the team knows we're low. If I could wave a magic wand and release 1.9 tomorrow, don't you think I would? We'd all love to have more time to contribute and to have MyBB thrive. Unfortunately, the team try as hard as they can and it never seems to be enough. If we look back at the commit and merge activity on GitHub, it's obvious that the number of people contributing has decreased massively in the last couple of years. Fewer developers are obviously going to struggle to keep up the old pace of change.

I honestly don't know what we can do to speed things up. All of the active members of the development and SQA team hold down full time jobs and are distributed across several different timezones. Most of us are also juggling several other MyBB tasks like responding to the several daily emails we receive to the MyBB email address(es).

I will always welcome constructive input, and would definitely welcome contributions in the form of code and testing any day of the week. But threads like these never fail to make me feel less motivated to continue working on a project I've poured the last decade into.
