Well, I did put this in the description of this forum:
Also the place to find out first when Fritz is going to f*** with the software again.
The PhpBB Group
is scheduled to release the latest version of their software, PhpBB 3.1.0, on October 28. It's been in development since 3.0.0 released almost seven years ago, and entered the Alpha stage early this year. I've been running a 3.1.x board on my localhost since Beta 3, back in May.
It's a bigger change than just updating the board from a 3.0 version to another 3.0 (the current incarnation is 3.0.12), but not as large as the change from 2.0.x to 3.0.x was. I'm planning to do this upgrade on Sunday, November 2nd, after I change back to the Ecto Green style.
I've already created all of the styles the Ectozone and GBWC message boards use for 3.1.x thanks to the Beta and RC releases. You will notice a few differences in functionality, and some stuff might be moved, but it's a subtle change.
In case it isn't clear, all of the posts and users should not be affected. It all will be there; I'm not restarting the board whole cloth, just upgrading it's software.
This means the board will go offline for a while on November 2nd as I do the upgrade. If there's any problem doing so, the 3.0.12 files will not be affected, and I can switch back to it if necessary.
If there's any question or problem, let me know!
Thanks for visiting the Ectozone!
