It's a good thing the moderators know what they're doing and can tell the difference between someone asking for a release date and someone asking how to be kept informed.

I have faith in the moderators.

Do YOU?

Hi,

i'm a developer too so i could understand don't say any date about finishing. But a lot of guys waiting for phpBB 3.0 for a long time. i think it is a good behavior saying something about current status.

Best Regards.

They have given a status. They're expecting a beta release sometime this month. However, with two recent releases of v2.x.x, plus the recent hack into the system, a delay is expected :(

Hahah when a beta/final is released no one will be able to download it as I can imagine several thousand users trying to get it at the same time.

Sourceforges servers will be able to cope.

Hopefully :P

I'd be extremely surprised if sourceforge couldn't cope with that.

The amount of hosted files and the fact it works in mirrors would generally mean the load is spread across them all.

Most servers will cope with a fair few concurrent downloads.

Was that aimed at me? if so...I know, I update my copy every 2 weeks.

I merely used it in a sense that many other downloads will be occuring too. Just because a beta of this is out, doesn't mean it'll be the only thing available...

The only thing I would ask of the devs at the moment is that if they feel they won't make a release period they had previously stated, they'd let us know.

So we should be pretty damn close to the beta! :D
