Vanilla 2.6 is here! It includes security fixes and requires PHP 7.0. We have therefore ALSO released Vanilla 2.5.2 with security patches if you are still on PHP 5.6 to give you additional time to upgrade.
I'm Burke, and I am a server admin for 2 free webhosts, and main support forum admin for another major webhost. I am also Team leader for BK Modding, a site that does mods and themes for SMF forums. We are now looking into the idea of expanding, and doing Vanilla plugins, once we get used to the coding.
