Notable Bug Fixes
The bug related to the "Who is online list not working properly" has been fixed, it seems.
It was one of the support questions more asked, should be worth to mention?

Tested an automatic update from phpBB 3.1.6 to phpBB 3.1.8 RC1 and update went smoothly.

I've tested the NRU fix and view members fix and can confirm proper operation again.

Thanks to the phpBB development team for all their efforts.

I have not tested the update (yet), but could you please fix a typo in the github style changes section title?

Please update "style chagnes 3.1.8-RC1" to "style changes 3.1.8-RC1".

The title is carried to the page's document title as: style chagnes 3.1.8-RC1 · GitHub

Rationale: "You never get a second chance to make a first impresssion." The first thing users notice are errors in the UI and documentation. Errors found here will question the quality of the product (and your reputation), regardless of the underlying efforts. I apply this principle everywhere.

Update: The typo has been fixed, thank you.

I installed with QI 1.2.1 on localhost. In the Acp, i get a message that phpBB is not up to date.

Your phpBB installation is not up to date.

Since 3.2 is only Beta, that shouldn't happen.

You are using an unstable version of phpBB (3.1.8-RC1) so it is expected.

I haven't noticed a typo in the gist name (I know that it has been fixed), but I noticed it in your sentence however.
I don't think that typos in secondary files not included in phpBB and meant primarily for developers can distract users from choosing the software.
Nevertheless these typos should be fixed just for making things better. ;)
