Well today i thought i would unleash alot of new things. First of all I would like to announce the release of bbDKP Beta 4
! After many months of inactivity, and hard work we have finally compiled a beta 4 for most of you to test out. We HIGHLY ENCOURAGE
you to do a Clean Full Install since bbDKP has been cleaned up quite a bit and there have been many improvements/features added to bbDKP. But if that is not possible, we have included a changed files only for those of you who have heavily modded sites. The Beta 3 to Beta 4 Upgrade Files comes with an installer to help new people out with pre-existing databases ( So that you do not lose Raid Data). In the zip there is also a Manual Update Install text file for step by step install instructions.
I would like to take the time to thank the following people for development and contributions:
- Developer, Teksonic helped many members with their problems and helped me finish up what was needed to release Beta 4.Ippeh
- Project Creator and Developer up until Beta 3.MokeyTech and DWKN
- Former Developers that helped us fixes bugs throughout the production of Beta 4.
Without these people we would not have bbDKP or have gotten the support needed to make Beta 4. Sorry that it came so late and it was delayed for so many months due to inactivity, or just plain busy schedule. We hope to not disappoint you with the release of Beta 4, but to show that bbDKP is continue to progress and there is an exciting and bright future for bbDKP. Continue to post suggestions in the suggestion section, so that we can start developing the next version of bbDKP with enhanced features, and support.Full Change log from Beta 3 to Beta 4:

On another note i would like to thank Bisa for donating to the bbDKP project, his donation helped pay for the new domain and hosting. All posts/users should have been migrated to the new site so there is no need to re-register or constantly have to refer to the old site to look at old posts. But, if you would also like to donate to the bbDKP project feel free to do so below. And, if you donate to bbDKP the next release will show that you contributed to the project.If you would like to donate through paypal follow the link below:https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?c ... et=UTF%2d8
And on a sad and jolly note, All official support for beta 3 will be discontinued. Now that there is new version out with NUMEROUS improvements we will no longer be supporting any other versions other than beta 4. Assuming that Beta 4 has no problems we will release a final version of 1.0.9. So that means if you come across any bugs make sure to post on the forums.
