phpBB 3.0.11 Release Candidate 1 published

Post by naderman » Fri Jun 01, 2012 4:05 pm

Greetings community!

We are happy to announce the availability of the first release candidate of phpBB 3.0.11 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=10400

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 3.0.11 is a maintenance release fixing a various bugs but not adding any new features. We've improved compatability with PHP 5.4 further and added a warning about the minimum PHP version required to upgrade to phpBB 3.1 to warn users of old PHP installations.

The full changelog is available 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!

*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. :)

Code: Select all

#-----[ OPEN ]--------------------------------------------- 
#
styles/prosilver/template/ucp_pm_viewfolder.html

#
#-----[ FIND ]---------------------------------------------
# Around Line 1
<!-- INCLUDE ucp_header.html -->

<!-- IF not PROMPT -->
	<!-- INCLUDE ucp_pm_message_header.html -->

#
#-----[ FIND ]---------------------------------------------
# Around Line 5
	<div class="panel pm-panel-message"><div>

#
#-----[ REPLACE WITH ]---------------------------------------------
# Just remove/delete the lines (replacing with an empty line)

It doesn't mention to remove the closing divs for the line that we remove.
Should assure that it does in RC2.
Maybe you should mention that into the RC2 Changes, for people that haven't done it now, or if they have missed to do the edits.
Find:

Code: Select all

		<span class="corners-bottom"><span></span></span>
	</div>
Replace with:

Code: Select all

		<span class="corners-bottom"><span></span></span></div>
================================

This is also wrong....

Code: Select all

#
#-----[ FIND ]---------------------------------------------
# Around Line 885
}

/* PM panel adjustments */
.pm-panel-header,
#cp-main .pm-message-nav {
	border-bottom-color: #A4B3BF;

#
#-----[ REPLACE WITH ]---------------------------------------------
# Just remove/delete the lines (replacing with an empty line)

It should mention the closing bracket too.

Code: Select all

}

/* PM panel adjustments */
.pm-panel-header,
#cp-main .pm-message-nav {
   border-bottom-color: #A4B3BF;
*Imagine a signature super spectacular.*

@TheKiller:
The first change was actually made like that, but this seems weird to me right now, so this might be a bug. See https://github.com/phpbb/phpbb3/pull/461/files#diff-1
For the second change, see nextgen's post.

Oh.. okay, but it would be cute if you could make the updating instructions clearer to understand.

It would have been clearer to say it as this:
Find:

Code: Select all

/* PM panel adjustments */
.pm-panel-header,
#cp-main .pm-message-nav {
	border-bottom-color: #A4B3BF;
}
Replace with:

Code: Select all

# Just remove/delete the lines (replacing with an empty line)
Also, i noticed that you tell us to find things twice, to finally do an action(replace/add after/before. delete..)
Take this for example:

Code: Select all

#
#-----[ OPEN ]--------------------------------------------- 
#
styles/prosilver/theme/colours.css

#
#-----[ FIND ]---------------------------------------------
# Around Line 880
/* PM Styles
----------------------------------------*/
/* PM Message history */
.current {
	color: #000000 !important;

#
#-----[ FIND ]---------------------------------------------
# Around Line 885
}

/* PM panel adjustments */
.pm-panel-header,
#cp-main .pm-message-nav {
	border-bottom-color: #A4B3BF;

#
#-----[ REPLACE WITH ]---------------------------------------------
# Just remove/delete the lines (replacing with an empty line)


Why tell us to find :

Code: Select all

/* PM Styles
----------------------------------------*/
/* PM Message history */
.current {
	color: #000000 !important;
And then find:

Code: Select all

/* PM panel adjustments */
.pm-panel-header,
#cp-main .pm-message-nav {
	border-bottom-color: #A4B3BF;
When we can just find the code, above, and replace it ?
I really do not see the point, and find it annoying. It always made me wonder if it is a bug of the automatic differences tool, that missed to say what you have to do after you fix the x line.

After the tool you use to compare files, finishes it, you should check the instructions, by updating a previous style version manually, and clear the instructions manually, if there are any issues like this.. (FIND, FIND, REPLACE.....) :geek:

I really have no intention to spend a lot of time to manually edit these. If you have an idea how to improve the automated tool, I'll happily merge your pull request for the build script.

the double finds are actually a good ideal especially for php changes cause there may be the real find line in the php file twice the first find will help narrow it down

Yeah, but in this case, it isnt. It asks you to double find twice, for nothing, and confuses you more.
I dont even know how your comparing tool looks like, and i am not experienced with much PHP/Javascript, to be able to help.

Who says you have to do this?
There must be someone in the team that might offer to do that.
