phpBB Group announces the release of phpBB 2.0.19, the "we wish you all a happy new year" release. This release addresses several bugfixes and some security issues only affecting Internet Explorer. Additionally we introduced a new feature to limit the number of logins. The admin is able to configure this feature on two ways, defining the number of maximum allowed logins and setting a time period after the user is allowed to login again. With this feature we hope to address the recent dictionary attacks happening on some forums to crack user passwords.
* Full Package
Contains entire phpBB2 source and English language package
* Changed Files Only
Contains only those files changed from previous versions of phpBB. Please note this archive contains changed files for each previous release
* Patch Files
Contains patch compatible patches from the previous versions of phpBB.
* Code Changes

Select whichever package is most suitable for you.

Please ensure you read the INSTALL and README documents in docs/ before proceeding with installation or updates!.


It is important that you carry out both parts of the update - updating the files and running the database update script - for updates to be complete.
