NOTE: The BOARD18 Development History has been moved to a separate set of pages.
With the release of version 2.4.3 on December 5, 2016, BOARD18 became a mature product.
At that point the BOARD18 project shifted to a maintenance mode, though some minor enhancements were done over the next years.
And, starting in 2020, some long overdue enhancements started to be implemented in the 2.6.x and 2.7.x releases.
Also, the design document has been extensively updated and a substantial number of Dream Spreadsheets have been written.
Support Plans for BOARD18 Instances
Anyone with access to a web server can create an instance of BOARD18. But here I will only discuss my plans for the BOARD18 instances that I maintain at board18.org.
The Current Situation
Currently, in January of 2021, I am supporting one production instance of BOARD18. This instance is called prod1.board18.org.
Analysis of Existing Game Boxes
As of JUNE of 2020 there were 85 active game boxes on prod1.board18.org. Some of these game boxes are used quite a lot and a few are seldom used at all. No subsequent analysis has been performed.
The prod1.board18.org instance is the current production site. There are no current plans for any additional production sites.
