What should I do?

Post by halofight977 »

I have phpBB V. 2.2, and its fine, I have a lot of mods installed, but I keep asking myself, should I switch over to Olympus? or wait until the final version comes out for release?

Hope to hear your opinion!

Well as it's still in beta your only option is to stay with phpBB2.

When RC1 is released you can use it live if you want to or wait for gold.

Curious, devs must have been hiding something from us, I didn't know about the existence of v. 2.2 :lol:
Maybe 2.0.22?

If you need to ask, the answer is: wait.
At least for RC, as Kevin says.

If you upgrade the the Beta of phpBB3 Beta you will lose all your Mods (They WONT work) and you will most likely be faced with a few bugs and twitches because it's not well, finished.
When the first proper version of phpBB3 comes out you should upgrade to that, some of the Mods and security will be there which wasn't there in 2.0.x. I don't know about the RC versions of phpBB but the final version will most likely be better.
Oh and, in RC+ versions of phpBB you will be to back up your forum to phpBB.
