Core vs. Extensions

So, this is a question and a comment, though the comment may be irrelevant, depending on the answer to the question... The question is not purely technical, though it has technical implications, and is indicated in the title: My question is: how does the team see future development, WRT "will it be ...

Re: What is the future of phpBB????

(reviving old topic) during this topic, some pretty harsh things were said, many of them by myself (though i still think most of them were fair, they were still "harsh"). With the announcement on 3.1 alpha-3, i wanted to convey my thanks and appreciation to the team: i think this shows phpbb is head...

Re: When to expect major changes in phpbb?

it's just not physically possible for phpbb 3.1 to be released this year Sure it is. It's just not likely. I'm moving my expectations to mid 2014. when dealing with real life, we call events below certain probability "physically impossible". when you flip a coin, you attach 50% probability for it t...

Re: [RFC] Add foreign keys to phpBB3.1 to make it faster

+1 but I'm not sure 3.1 should be the target. This is much bigger/complex than just defining a few foreign keys. ?????? as far as i understand, this RFC is about one thing, and one thing only: adding some foreign key indexes. how is it "much bigger/complex than just defining a few foreign keys"? wh...

Re: When to expect major changes in phpbb?

You won't. You'll see a BETA at best. Please don't post "facts" that you have no clue of you can't hold the stick at both ends: if phpbb team refuses to provide any forecast/timetable, inevitably other people will post predictions. and more to the point: his prediction of not seeing 3.1 release thi...

Re: What is the future of phpBB????

I may have missed it but I'm not sure if you've actually suggested what you think needs to be done different. I can see from reading between the lines in your last post it seems like you are dissatisfied that there is no release date (or never has been for any of our releases). So what happens if w...

Re: What is the future of phpBB????

Again, you are wrong. The work that the GSoC students did was not just thrown away or "buried somewhere" as you seem to be suggesting. You should do a little more research over at github before you suggest things like that and make all sorts of irresponsible assumptions. you show misunderstanding a...

Re: What is the future of phpBB????

The rest I'm not so sure. You sound a bit spiteful toward it, but it's misplaced. If you want a failing attitude, look no further than "it's free so don't complain" as an excuse for slow/lacking features. It's been said here before, and that's the worst... but it's sadly true, there's no point gett...

Re: [RFC] Twig as our template engine

i must admit i did not read this whole thread - i know it's bad form, but the alternative is not to say anything, and there is a slight chance my comment will be useful: i do not think it's a good idea to "replace" the template engine. this will basically force everyone to completely throw away all ...
