phpBB 3.0.9 Release Candidate 1 published

Post by naderman » Tue Jun 14, 2011 1:21 am

Greetings community!

We are happy to announce the availability of the first release candidate of phpBB 3.0.9 aimed at experienced users in an effort to increase the quality of final releases.

Please scrutinise this release in-depth and report issues to the bug tracker. Critical bugs halting the board's operation should be reported immediately. Feel free to contact developers directly about such problems.

We recommend that international support sites update their sites to RC1 too. We are able to provide direct support to them within our international support sites forums.

Tagging/Reviewing fixes

On our tracker QA team members can mark bug fixes as verified. Use the "Verify Solution" button from the button set at the top of the ticket. Of course prior to clicking you should have properly checked whether the bug was really fixed. Comment on the respective bug if you find problems so the fix can be corrected.

You can find a list of unverified fixes at http://tracker.phpbb.com/secure/IssueNa ... stId=10200

Language Packs and Styles

We already gave out instructions to language pack authors to let them update their language packs in a timely manner. The changes are provided with the code changes package (see downloads section below). Style authors should also download the code changes package and adjust their styles accordingly. Please post within our Styles forums if you have questions or encounter problems.

New features, changes, bug fixes

phpBB 3.0.9 is a maintenance release fixing a number of bugs as well as adding some minor new features. It contains two new caching backends: WinCache for Windows servers and a Redis backend. The number of login attempts without having to solve an anti-spambot task can now be limited by IP. Username and password fields are no longer incorrectly autocompleted in the ACP.

The full changelog is available at http://tracker.phpbb.com/secure/Release ... ctId=10010 or in the changelog file within the docs folder contained in the package which includes previous releases.

Available packages

If you experience problems with the automatic update (white screens, timeouts, etc.) we recommend using the "changed files only" or "patch" method for updating.
  • Full Package:
    Full phpBB 3 source code and english language files.
  • Automatic Update Package:
    Update package for the automatic updater, contains changes from previous release to this release.
  • Changed Files Only:
    Complete files, but only those that were changed since previous releases of phpBB 3. This archive contains changed files for every previous release.
  • Patch Files:
    This file contains diffs against the previous phpBB 3 release, which can be applied with the patch utility.
  • Code Changes Package:
    This package contains MOD instructions for changes to the following sections: Language changes, prosilver style changes and subsilver2 style changes.
Select the package most suitable for you. We recommend the following methods depending on your situation:
  • For new installations you should use the Full Package
  • For updates of boards without modifications you can use the Automatic Update Package (guided update) or the Changed Files Only package (manual update).
  • For updates of boards with modifications you should use the Automatic Update Package. If you are confident with patch files and patching you can use the Patch Files Package.
  • Style Authors and Translators may use the Code Changes Package to update their styles or language packs.
  • International Support Teams may use the Patch Package in conjunction with the Code Changes to better support users with problematic conflicts during their update process or to help them update code sections.
  • If you are a hoster/provider, you may want to use the Patch Files Package to update all of your client installations.
Please ensure you read the INSTALL and README documents in docs/ before proceeding with installation, updates or conversions!

Download Locations

The download is of course available on our downloads page.
Our release archive provides all packages we build. If you do not find your desired package you can probably find it in the release archive.

*IMPORTANT*

To correctly perform an update, do not forget to re-enable the PHPBB_QA constant in your includes/constants.php file. Otherwise you are not prompted for an update in the ACP and the automatic update will eventually fail. :)

I'm currently updating my styles (all Prosilver-based), but I found this :

Code: Select all

#
#-----[ FIND ]---------------------------------------------
# Around Line 308
.signature a, .signature a:visited, .signature a:active, .signature a:hover {
	background-color: transparent;
}

/* Profile links */
.postprofile a:link, .postprofile a:active, .postprofile a:visited, .postprofile dt.author a {
	color: #105289;
}

.postprofile a:hover, .postprofile dt.author a:hover {
	color: #D31141;

#
#-----[ REPLACE WITH ]---------------------------------------------
#
.signature a, .signature a:visited, .signature a:hover, .signature a:active {
	background-color: transparent;
}

/* Profile links */
.postprofile a:link, .postprofile a:visited, .postprofile dt.author a {
	color: #105289;
}

.postprofile a:hover, .postprofile dt.author a:hover {
	color: #D31141;
}

.postprofile a:active {
	color: #105289;
Wouldn't it have been better to split this, for we style authors heavily modify the colours.css file and so, I cannot copy-paste the indicated block without losing my modifications. I have to change it manually.

I hope that this will be taken into account for the nexe update.

You probably need to make these changes to your style manually. Please see: http://tracker.phpbb.com/browse/PHPBB3-9166

I did it without using the page.

Now I finished updating my styles, but I just hope that the stable version will be released before or after my 2-weeks vacation that I'll spend at my fifth wheel trailer for the whole second half of July. I won't have the net (Mom doesn't want any computer in our FW).
