Many years before Allegro 5 began development, a thread was created announcing "Allegro 5 released!" as an April Fools Joke. Year after year, this original thread was resurrected until an automatic thread-lock was added allegro.cc, preventing older threads from being revived. The thread listed such features as "4D graphics" and "Hardware accelerated mind control," which later became a meme in the community.

Due to the consistent re-linking and reviving to the thread over several years, it has had the undesired effect of giving precedence on search engines for the keyword "Allegro 5". For that reason a link to the thread is not included here in the wiki.
