However that is for phpBB4. While I don't oppose big changes to the MCP for 3.1, we do need someone to actually make them. And I doubt we can implement all of that in the little time we have ;-)

Thanks.
from what i understand we are talking about May 31 2010?
maybe it would be good to publish it in a bit more visible place?

peace.

Probably makes sense, any suggestion as to where?

i would put it in phpbb.com announcements.
of course, you have to make sure that the announcement is clear wrt the question of "what exactly is going to happen on may 31".
you probably don't want people to think this is the release date. i assume this is "code freeze" date, but maybe *i* misunderstood what exactly is going to happen on may 31...

so i think that the question of "were", by default, is easy.
the content of the announcement is a bit more tricky....

peace.

May 31 isn't the code freeze date, it's the feature freeze date. From that day on, no new features will be considered for inclusion in 3.1. But the code won't be frozen, and it's definitely not going to be the release date. :)

Oh, I see. I had assumed that "code freeze" meant a freeze on development, and hadn't realized that code freeze and feature freeze were synonymous. :lol: Thanks for the info.

You also need to announce the main goal for 3.1. The main feature and the major changes that will be added in 3.1.
