AsmBB v2.7 has been released. Now encrypted databases are supported.

Has been released the next, v2.7 of the assembly language written forum engine AsmBB.

The major new feature (besides several minor bug fixes) is the support for fully encrypted database.

The encryption is provided by the SQLite extension SQLeet.

The implemented encryption seriously increases the security and privacy level of AsmBB. Now even leaking of the database or serious breach in the server will not compromise the security of the forum database.

The encryption is of course optional and the implementation is fully backward compatible with the existing non-encrypted databases.

P.S. The project still is looking for the contributors, especially about the design and the front-end issues.

Unfortunately, the most of the complaints of the users is about the forum "ugliness". :D
