phpBB3 estimate..

Post by Pharaoh Atem »

I'm just wondering, what level do the developers and the users here think this new version of phpBB is qualified as? To the users because devs will kill me for asking them ;) : when do you think this new system will be finalized and released, based on the current state of this AWESOME new phpBB version? Just 2 questions...

It will be released in twenty-one days. :D

As expected, phpBB is highly in demand and the developers are doing their best. Just check on the http://www.phpBB.com" target="_blank frontpage. If in twenty-one days v.3.0 Olympus is not out, then it means the developers are holding it back for a major reason.

1) You shouldn't post such definitive news here. Dumb lusers will take it as fact...
2) I'm not sure where exactly you get this estimate anyways. Elaborate?

It is true that some people may get the wrong idea.

Where did I get this estimate? It is from reading all the posts from the developers. They are trying to release phpBB 3.0 beta1. :D

Basically all the coding of features are done. So now they are clearing out all the bugs. So it is late in March that they release the copy for bug testing. If you check the bug trackers, they are working hard to clear every bugs they can. Of course every beta release will never have full error-free. That is why it is beta. But they want confidence of error-free.

My guess is that it may take them a little bit more than a month to clear those bugs reported to them. Then with confidence, they will release the beta version. :D

So the question is to what I estimate. I estimate about 21 days left. :D :mrgreen:
hmm....
