Wow.. I can see the magic now. Just woke up and volla, saw a brand new phpbb site. Good to see the whole site is responsive and not just the forum. Looking good....

So this also means the stable 3.1 could be out pretty soon. Where else to take it for a spin than the phpbb site which is the busiest site I have seen using phpbb forum software..

A lot of teammembers were involved in the updates.

And yes, I think the website team does the update. I wouldn't know who else.

I would say the core devs would be on standby (or working on it) as well.

Indeed. These projects are primarily managed by the website team but we have the support of the rest of the team including core developers should anything unexpected occur and to help test the website when the migration was complete. Team members from every phpBB team assisted last night, some getting up as early as 5am to start on it and others going to bed around 4am.

I've been using phpbb only for about 5 years and so far this has been the biggest update I've seen done to phpbb.com site. It's not an easy job considering how massive the site is and the forum is a mammoth. Not to mention the overhaul change to the complete website design and not just the forum. Standing ovation to the team! :)

Refreshing to see these changes..

You shouldn't need to do that, now—it should be loading first time.
