phpBB 3.0.9 Release Candidate 4 published

Post by naderman »

Greetings community!

The fourth release candidate for 3.0.9 has been released. Release candidates are 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.

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 in the changelog file within the docs folder contained in the package which includes previous releases. Alternatively you can view it online:
3.0.8 to RC1 http://tracker.phpbb.com/secure/Release ... ctId=10010
RC1 to RC2 http://tracker.phpbb.com/secure/Release ... ctId=10010
RC2 to RC3 http://tracker.phpbb.com/secure/Release ... ctId=10010
RC3 to RC4 http://tracker.phpbb.com/secure/Release ... ctId=10010

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!

*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. :)

Updated - :)

Shouldn't the phpbb logo in ./adm/images/ be updated to include the registered trademark logo as well?

Since this was rather late, we decided to do the one in the ACP in 3.0.10. It's not displayed particularly often anyway ;-)
