Re: phpBB 3.2.0-b2 released

I'v seen that 3.2.0-RC is released https://download.phpbb.com/pub/release/3.2/unstable/3.2.0-RC1/ since may 16th Is there any reason why it is not announced ? Just to be clear: phpBB 3.2.0-RC1 has not been released. Packages have been created but we haven't released it yet. This also means that the...

Re: Insert a function to replace the translated contents of any language into English (British)

What you are asking for goes far beyond what phpBB should and can do. This would require a large translation database for numerous languages, something phpBB is not but Google Translate is and has been working on for years. Adding something like that is simply out of the scope of phpBB. You want to ...

A change for comparing these two versions has been proposed for 3.1.x already:

Re: [RFC] Language packs should have .cfg file

The intial idea for the next feature release is actually to make use of a composer.json for styles and languages: https://github.com/phpbb/phpbb/pull/4129 This should also open the door for installing styles/languages similar to the proposed new method for extensions: https://github.com/phpbb/phpbb/...

Re: PHPBB3-14527 Dataloss caused by link shortening (maybe)

You don't seem to understand what DNS prefetch actually does. While you're claiming it slows things down and costs bandwith, it does actually reduce latency and barely uses any bandwidth (typical size of request < 512 Bytes). There are also plenty of tools that allow disabling DNS prefetching. Incre...

Re: phpBB 3.2.0-b2 released

The fact that you're describing a standard setup issue caused by the transition to PHP 7 as a major issue with phpBB is just exaggeration. phpBB 3.1.x requires PHP 5.3.3+ and therefore also supports the MySQL extension. The same applies to phpBB 3.2.x which has a minimum version of PHP 5.4.0. Now l...

Re: phpBB 3.2.0-b2 released

You're describing a non-issue. Simply use MySQLi instead of MySQL and you'll be able to install and use the board. Even 3.1.x should partially work with PHP 7. You will however encounter some issues, especially when it comes to custom BBCodes. The fact that you're describing a standard setup issue c...

Re: phpBB 3.2.0-a2 released

There is no update from 3.1.8 to 3.2.0-a2 because 3.2.0-a2 was released long before 3.1.8. You should use the latest of phpBB 3.2 instead of using a fairly outdated alpha:
