Hi!

Will there be update scripts from the beta? In 2.0.x you had to make the changes to the database manually.
5. Upgrade from phpBB 2.0 beta-1

Sorry but no direct upgrade is available from beta-1 (we did warn you!). If you are reasonably confident with the use of SQL, etc. you may be able to make the required changes to the database manually. You will need to examine the CVS check-ins to determine what needs changing where.

The devs said they hope to have update scripts from beta 1 to final.

Just please note that - they hope to be able to provide an upgrade path from the first Beta onwards, but it can't be guaranteed at this time.
