That's right folks, I've been working on making phpBB a true Geeklog plugin. After a few schema changes, some regular expressions kung-fu and some coding wizardry this plugin is ready for it's debut. Take a look at it here
If you are chomping at the bit for this then you better download geeklog-1.3 (from CVS) as it contains the needed plugin management code needed to install phpBB. I will make the tarball available on Thursday pending any big bugs. You can learn more about phpBB at their site
The reason people blame things on previous generations is that there's only one other choice.
