And I supposed we'll be working hard such that it does not happen unless it is really necessary.EXreaction wrote:Extensions generally should not have issues from updates. About the only major reason for issues would be events changing somehow, but this is very unlikely to happen.
Anyway, as extensions use the events we give, I think the system can work such that, before the update, the system can check which events are being used by extensions and which events are going to be changed. With that information, the system can predict where there's the possibility that a specific extension will break.
With that info in hand, we can warn the forum admin about that problem even before he updates his phpBB forum. Also, the MOD/extension maker would probably also notice it if he uses the extension he made in his forum. With documentation we can provide, he could (in many cases) easily update his extension to the new interface.
What do you think of that?
