conversion tool

Post by JPV »

No, this aint a question to provide a upgrade path right from B2 to B3 or something.

But, in the announcement, it states:
"Within the beta packages we did not include the conversion tool for converting phpBB 2.0.x (and other packages) to phpBB 3.0.x. It is most likely included within the first Release Candidate."


wat would be "the other packages"? Are they thinking about vBulletin or something similar?

There will be converters from other packages to phpBB 3.0 just like there are for phpBB 2.0. It's just organized in a more unified way and converting from phpBB 2.0 will be handled like any other conversion from any other package.

All we have seen is the picture posted above, on Graham's site. The code isn't currently available publically.
