A beta of Orca 8.2

V8 Orca is the 8th and current version of SBC design, being the upgrade to IP.Board. It was first announced on April 26th, 2012 by tvguy347. It was released on June 15th, 2012, and like vBulletin, many features were added as time went on.

On June 8, 2012, it was announced that (like in v7) there would be a change to the way we refer to versions. The V# was dropped, so that it would be referred to only as Orca.
