Normally I'd second this. We use an old version on one of the message
boards I frequent and it seems much more efficient than most PHP+MySQL
message board software while still retaining all of the nifty features.

Unfortunately, it seems that the latest version has a remote file
inclusion vulnerability (according to Bugtraq). This sort of thing lets
attackers execute any PHP code they like as the webserver user. If I
were going to try it out I'd be sure to get the proper patch here


or perhaps just wait for an updated version.

Other than that, I like it a lot.
