Well, I don't think this will be a real RC like all the others were. This will be more like a pre-gold release. As you may remember, there were some hints that starting from 3.0.0 every minor release would also have a release candidate to make sure there aren't any annoying obvious bugs in the software (like there were in phpBB 3.0.RC6 and if I remember correctly there was also a phpBB2 release which had been followed by another release in a very short period of time). So I think, this QA thingy in the CVS is for this, if QA is turned on (BTW does anyobody know what QA stands for?) the board checks for half-development versions too (note the new file: http://www.phpbb.com/updatecheck/30x_qa.txt). This would allow testers to use the automatic updater.

Ps.: Does QA stands for Quality assurance? Well, it could fit my theory.

This half-release (RC8) appears to me like a small bugfix (like file packaging).

fberci,

I have split the QA thingy to a separate topic for discussion there. I think it's worthy a separate topic.

Wouldn't any RC before Gold be considered a pre-Gold release, whether it be RC8 or RC9? :lol:

Well, that’s not quite true.
For one, we actually fix our bugs, and don’t release the software until most bugs are fixed.
And two, software just has bugs. But phpBB3 is much more stable than any Microsoft Software product ever released.

I think they're referring to a release directly before Gold. XD A sub-Gold, if you will, although you could argue the RC(s) are that as well.
One day, I'll remember to add my actual signature and avatar. I think.

I actually ment that it HAD more bugs. Sorry, my English is good but not perfect. And I know that what you say is true. That is why I'm still waiting for GOLD, and not installing other boards than phpbb.
