Hello,
if I want to find something about speciffic version of some software (for example find phrase "gentoo-dev-sources AND 2.6.9"), it doesn't work :-( But if I remember, sometime in the past it had worked!

This is very bad "feature", searching for posts reffering to some exact version of software is very important for me. I don't understand why something so simple as search is so badly implemented. Or am I blind and there is some search feature I have missed? If not, can you please implement it?

As you have already spotted, the phpBB forum's search function is a pathetic piece of crap. The forum mods resist modding the software (which is a sensible thing to do, what with increased maintenance effort and so forth), so you'll have to complain to the phpBB people about this.

Please browse other "search" related threads in Gentoo Forums Feedback for this, and other complaints about the search feature.
