Re: [RFC] Refactoring phpbb_version_compare

It basically says something about the board not meeting the requirements of the extension The problem with that message is is that it is too generic - by using the ext file you can have multiple tests each with their own error message. What would make life easier would be if an extension developer ...

Re: [RFC] Refactoring phpbb_version_compare

I would agree with using the ext file for this - it can be customised to give more meaningful, and helpful, error messages to the user.

Re: phpBB 3.2.0-b2 released

my hosting provider OVH doesn't support php 5.3 anymore since march 2015. That's fair enough - but they must have been/are supporting some later version (5.6?) as PHP7 was only released at the end of last year.

It even does not work at all with PHP7

I'm waiting for it to be able to change my hosting to PHP7
The same answer that you will always get - when it is ready.

Why the great rush to move to PHP7?
