Version 0.7 of Newsboard has been released to introduce a new feature requested by a Newsboard user. Password encryption can now be enabled/disabled by altering the encrypt variable in 'add_users.asp' and 'login.asp' from encrypt = 1 (enabled) to encrypt = 0 (disabled).

Newsboard 0.6

Mon, 06 Oct 2003 17:31:53 -0000

Newsboard 0.6 has just been released. One one change has been made for this release but it's quite a big one. The field type for the posts has been changed from 'text' to 'memo' meaning that the news posts no longer have a maximum length of 255 characters.

Newsboard - next version

Tue, 30 Sep 2003 21:48:07 -0000

I am starting work on updating Newsboard to the next version (0.5). New features I will be implementing include the facility to modify/delete posts and fixing a bug that could potentially occur if two users trial to update the same record at the same time (although unlikely in Newsboard it is a more likely occurence when the ability to modify and delete posts is added).

Newsboard 0.4

Tue, 02 Sep 2003 19:42:09 -0000

Newsboard 0.4 is now released for download and it has been installed on our demonstration site ( The look of the HTML pages has been vastly improved in this release.

Newsboard 0.3

Wed, 06 Aug 2003 08:26:33 -0000

Newsboard 0.3 is now available to download. There is only one change in this release and that is encrypted passwords, but I think it's an important improvement.

Newsboard 0.2 on test site

Wed, 30 Jul 2003 11:14:04 -0000

Version 0.2 of Newsboard is now uploaded to our demonstration site: I have changed the code for the test site so that everybody is admin (so you can try out the admin pages) but I have removed the code that actually makes the changes.

Newsboard 0.2 Released

Tue, 29 Jul 2003 21:47:03 -0000

Newsboard 0.2 is now downloadable. There have been many changes in this release including configuration pages, admin users, ability to allow admins to lock the newsboard to new users. Our Newsboard demonstration site still has version 0.1 on it, but I will upload 0.2 to that soon (my internet connection is being very unreliable today). I hope you like Newsboard 0.2.
