v Bulletin 3.6 was released as a stable version on 3 August 2006.
In December 2002, v Bulletin 3 was beginning development.
The lawsuit alleges "widespread infringement and unlawful exploitation" of v Bulletin's source code and "equally damaging misappropriation of trade secrets" developed and owned by v Bulletin with "investments of millions of dollars over the last ten years." The lawsuit further alleges that the developers of Xen Foro Ltd.
"took with them virtually every type of document a competitor would need to enter the market and unlawfully create a competing bulletin board software program." Since the initial release of the v Bulletin forum product in 2000, there have been many changes and improvements.
In 2009, long-time developers Kier Darby, Mike Sullivan, Scott Mac Vicar and Jeremy Hutchings left the company.
Kevin Sours, Don Kuramura, and Ray Morgan took Darby's place as lead developer, product manager, and general manager, respectively.
