        Release Notes: This release adds a Forum Archives Search feature, fixes for Perl warnings throughout, fixes for bugs on archived lists in various places, and security work, including a solution for a recent issue with cookie editing and username hijacking which ultimately resulted in "Monty53 of Turkey" overtaking the admin account at and editing the front page welcome message and news.

            Please ignore my comments under
            I wrote them several years ago. WebAPP has changed alot since then, and to start with the entire project has moved to and the old site at has been sold to *one* former developer, whom DO NOT represent the project. For more information kindly check whois history change records for the site.

            Dear editor, please either allow me to edit my old comment or to post this here,

            Thank you

            Why not just go kill eachother
            I don't care about this soft but this

            pointless FUD is really annoying...

            I should think that if you have an issue with the project ownership which you can confirm I'm sure the freshmeat admins might help you out...

            Re: Been looking for this script for years!
            The site is distributing a release I did for that group last September, which was 3 versions ago before our current release. Having been project manager for the WebAPP project ( since February of 2005, I have deep knowledge of the project and the people involved. Carter Brown gave me the project and the WebAPP site last November due to the constant harrassment he was receiving from this group. That is nothing but the truth.

            Please note:

            1.) All the developers who created this script moved to .

            2.) The original creator of this thread here Carter, has resigned from the project and sold his site to someone with a nick name "bantychick".

            3.) Now, this person comes here and claims that the site was down (this is not true) and that the project is back (which is also not true).

            Please read more about the consequences of this false claiming and using this spin-off script <a

            Yes, extremly unsecure script.
