Well currently I'd say convert to 3.0 and then update.
The problem is D!cky who was in charge of the convertors and wrote most of them, is unable to assist.
So far no one else stepped up to have a look and dive into the convertor stuff.

my point is the phpBB 3.1 is awesome and i think many people like to convert into phpBB 3.1 after the final release and we must have a good plan to create a simple way.
Thanks.

Well unless someone volunteers from somewhere to do these there won't be any. We don't have anyone assigned to do them. So right now the only way would be to install phpBB 3.0, run the conversion for the other forum software type, then upgrade to 3.1.
