Re: RC1 safe to use?

It is not safe to use in production (possible != safe). However there will be an upgrade path, so it's very very likely any data generated on RC1 will be upgradable to the 3.0.0 gold release. Of course we provide no warranties to the operation of the software under any condition anyway (read the lic...

Re: Mods

You don't enter in a MOD, it's not datum. You apply a MOD. For a MOD designed for 2.0 to work in 3.0, you would have to completely re-architect it from the ground up. None of the search seeds are the same, not in the PHP files, neither in the TPL (now HTML) files. All the sub-systems have changed, j...

If you don't like it, you'll be able to change it. That's the beauty of opensource software.

Re: Why does this board use phpbb3?

Yes, you are correct in saying the CVS will likely contain the converter code from RC1 onwards,

,...but wrong in the assumption that this means there will be an upgrade path from CVS to Final releases, the truth is there will not be.

You have to be careful when you read things ;)

Re: For comparison, how long did phpbb2 to go from RC to V2.

To answer the original question posed in this topic, which hasn't been answered surprisingly enough :roll: It took several months to move from RC1 to Gold.

Re: Why does this board use phpbb3?

Staying up to date with CVS requires technical knowledge. It is not for the feint hearted. There are no automated update scripts, and the database changes often. Database changes require you derive the queries to make the change to the schema. It is best, and easiest to just use 2.0. At the moment, ...

Because it isn't an option :P

Either RC1 or Gold for me.
