Re: register globals?

phpBB 3.0 is being written to produce no notices or warnings about var's not being initiated even when running E_ALL. What about E_STRICT? E_STRICT is not included in E_ALL. E_STRICT is for PHP 5.0, which includes E_ALL's error reporting, so in theory, E_STRICT will have the same effect. See the re...

Re: register globals?

which is also not the case in phpBB for example; In 2.0.x, yes, but in 3.0, no, phpBB 3.0 is being written to produce no notices or warnings about var's not being initiated even when running E_ALL. The code in 2.0.x is also there to prevent people from exploting modifications in the way of your cod...

There are no modifications in phpBB 3.0, everything you see here is part of the core code, and for that reason, is a default feature.

Re: subBlue is changing!

NeoThermic, I never stated Tom gave me access to the new style I think you need to understand what you said in context to the defintion of the word 'briefed' You said: 'Tom has already briefed me regarding the new style' The defintion of briefed is: # To summarize. # To give instructions or prepara...

Re: subBlue is changing!

Graham thanks for clarifying this grey area. Tom has already briefed me regarding the new style so I rest my case. :) Under the consideration that not even everyone on the phpBB teams knows what the new style looks like, or even the two newly hired developers, I highly doubt that you've been "brief...

Re: when will the 2.0.x -> 3.0 converter become available

you all (specifically neo) seem to be making the same (false) assumption: if i upgrade my board from v2 to v3, it doesnt necessary means that i shut down my v2 board and start operating (with all my users) on the v3 board. You might not, but there are other users who will. I dunno about you, but I ...

Re: when will the 2.0.x -> 3.0 converter become available

I'm sure Graham will post more on this, but I'll touch in here in the mean time. actually, there were no "reasons" cited by previous posts, only claims of the type "there will be no converter to prevent people from converting", "this is how it is going to be done", or "there is an rc stage for a rea...

Re: Password hashing function

Blowfish is a block cypher, which does mean that given the key, someone can quickly reverse the results done by the encrpytion. This is not a hashing system, and thus not sutable for such use on a forum (although IIRC OpenBSD uses it for its password storage, ho hum). this is exactly what I meant: ...
