2016-07-06 Web Forum and Bug Tracker are back online: As you might have noticed, our Web Forum as well as our Bug Tracker were partly unavailable for quite a while. It was possible to read them, but especially registration of new user accounts were disabled (i.e. due to numerous spam bot attacks we suffered in the past). Those issues have been resolved and so both sites are back available and should now work entirely as expected.
