You can find previous versions for download in the museum further down.

A note about version branches:

The previously published “stable” branch no longer exists and was entirely replaced by the “current” branch, previously called “development snapshots”. There is only a single line of development and all new features and fixes are included here. The old versioning scheme (up until 1.6.4) has been dropped. This makes it a lot easier for me to maintain the code and for you to stay current.

For your information, the last version number of 1.6.4 corresponds to the release date number 20070909.

If you want to see the changes in detail and update your present UNB installation by only merging the actual differences, you may find interesting tools on the Useful applications page.

Import scripts

Invision Board 1.1.2 (testing), by Yves Goergen, for version 1.5.2 and 1.5.3.
phpBB 2.0.x, by Yves Goergen, for version 1.5.2 and 1.5.3.

I have planned to make import scripts for Invision Board 2.0 and YaBB Gold, but I haven’t started yet.

If you need a converter from another board and want to contribute your work, you can take a look at the available scripts. Adapting them for new database layouts or data storage formats should not be too hard to manage. Again, you’re invited to send me a copy or publish your work in the forum.
