On 29 October 2010, Internet Brands filed a second lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Central District of California through its wholly owned subsidiary v Bulletin Solutions, Inc.against Xen Foro Ltd., and its founders Kier, Mike and Ashley.To help with the scale of the project, two additional developers, Freddie Bingham and Mike Sullivan were brought on to help finish v Bulletin 2.Kier Darby was brought on during the v Bulletin 2.0 Beta phase to further development.However, as time progressed, it proved to be a complete rewrite.Some of the key advantages over v Bulletin 2 are as follows: v Bulletin 3.6 introduced features such as the multi-quote system, the infractions system, the ability to automatically post threads and announcements from RSS feeds, and podcasting support.Below is a list of the major revisions and some of the changes they introduced.The current production versions are 3.8.11, 4.2.5, and 5.3.1. v Bulletin 2 is no longer under active development.
Rather than targeting all of these changes in a single, long-term release, we intend to accomplish all the planned improvements over a number of versions.
v Bulletin 3.6 was released as a stable version on 3 August 2006.
On 4 July 2007 Jelsoft announced that Jelsoft had been acquired by Internet Brands, which promised significant investment in software development.
Rewriting the entirety of the product, v Bulletin 2 commenced development.
Shortly thereafter, Limm became the managing director and Percival the lead developer.
