Just update my testboard with auto updater,
A lot of work to delete the files who are not longer used and some (old) extensions are no longer working, further no problems.

Probably a dumb question, by why am I not seeing the bigger buttons or the green dot to signify someone online. This is a clean install.

This board is running the latest master branch and therefore contains some changes that will not be part of phpBB 3.3.
