The forums at coderanch run on a heavily customized version of JForum. The code is developed and maintained by the coderanch staff (who are volunteers just like everyone else in the forums). From time to time the coderanch staff fixes bugs or introduces new features in the forum software. These changes are then deployed to the production servers.
The page here lists the release notes of each release that has been pushed to production. We would like to thank everyone who's been involved in maintaining the forum software.
