Currently there is no upgrade from the phpBB.com group to do this (2.x -> 3.x). So you will have to wait or do some searching for un-offical, unsupported by phpBB.com one.

The offical scripts is expected to start testing at RC1

phpBB3 b4 is stable (exept for some non-critical bugs), but if you have problems with upgrading from 2.0.21 there might be bigger problems with upgrading phpBB3 b4 to b5, (if there will be b5). Just because noone guarantees you that there will be an automatic b4>b5 upgrade. Tables in the database could be changed. Who knows...

You don't have to look very far to find them.
But...
Unless you have at least "fair" experience with PHP and MySQL, I don't recommend using the un-official script(s).

And of course, the inevitable disclaimer: Use at Your Own Risk.
phpBB and area51 DO NOT support un-official upgrade scripts or ANY Modifications at this time.
You have a VERY real possibility of losing ALL of your posts and users if you upgrade too early -- i.e. To Beta Stage and / or with an Un-Official Upgrade Script.
