Thanks to a tweet from @stickerboy, I went looking to see what he was talking about. The most notable change is the retirement of the longest serving team member, Florian Messner.

I don't know much about Mr. Messner other than that he is German. Never met him, never really interacted with him in any kind of social context. But he served in the phpBB teams for a period of almost ten years, a most notable achievement. (I believe he joined the support team in October of 2002, and retired quite recently as moderator team leader.)

Messner is replaced by Paul Cammish, whom I did meet in London in 2008.

On a semi-historical note: I'm fairly certain that the longest serving active team member is now Nils (aka naderman) who joined up in 2005.
