Now that you got me addicted to XAMPP which is a wonderful software, here is my proposal for next release.
Integrate PHPNuke into the release, drive everything if not most of it off MySQL and make the forums very much functional with PHPNuke.
I would love to be part of the development and help you in any way, I am already running parts of these software mostly on top of LAMPP.
P.S -> I use LAMPP exclusively, it runs like a champ .
Also you can PM me to see how I drive everything off of XAMPP and view my site, I would love to show you some of the stuff you made possible with your wonderful software.
