Re: stable enough?

neo, your understanding of the word "stable" is highly unorthodox. the short and long answer to the original question is: phpbb 3 is not "ready to use" or "stable" using any reasonable definition of these terms. No, I beleive that my understanding of the word stable is as per this: Consistently dep...

Re: stable enough?

Its stable enough for simple things, such as posting and the like. However, you'll find that things don't work yet. Basically you'll need to know a decent amount of PHP, and know your RDBMS enough to do some SQL of which might be missing from the admin pannel. Also, you'll want to keep up to date wi...

Re: When you say "It'll get done when it gets done"

If you mean it will be released when the code is stable and secure and not sooner than that, I agree. That, generally is exactly what is ment when we say 'when its ready'. There's no point releasing 3.0, and then having to patch it to get it to a stable level. Even the beta will be quite stable (he...

Re: I am taking the code.

I would just like to point out an ultimate flaw in your plan. You say that you'll eradicate phpBB, and then rename your project to phpBB. There's a little issue of copyright. See 'phpBB' is copyrighted, you can't use the name. Copyright is also a powerfull thing, meaning that it exists for the life ...

Re: WHY do people ask about phpBB3 so much?

There code be secuirty vunerabillities in the software As you've just shown, no one is perfect. Some decent reasons to avoid using the CVS, but I would suggest that if anyone is going to convert over to 3.0 or considering updating their mods / providing a converter have a dabble. But then, those pe...

Re: Password hashing function

Judging by the follow-up responses, security concerns often aren't taken seriously until a dev steps in and says that they're worthy of concern. Secuirty concerns are taken seriously. If you think otherwise, then please look around you. Look at things like the secuirty tracker, the code audit, and ...

Re: Password hashing function

I also have to note, I've been unable to find any links to proof of attacks on input data which is less than 1024 bits. The user of a phpBB system is actually limited to a password of 32 characters, so we are a good deal short on the 1024 bits that seems to be required at minimum for the attacks. As...
