I never claimed that currently the code is being scrapped. I was asking if you thought it was time for phpbb4. This is a topic about creating phpbb4 and I read this earlier...

Under our current versioning scheme, having something like phpBB4 would mean completely rewriting the entire phpBB codebase, I'm sure you'll understand that something like this is an enormous undertaking.

This is why the developers have currently decided to focus on feature releases (3.2, 3.3 etc.) which add new features to our existing codebase and also will have new releases much faster than when we completely rewrite all code. :)

phpbb 4.0 is in the works. its not a complete re-write but we are making several major changes. The primary focus being a massive face-lift and modernization of the platform.

Thanks for the link. What you are working on looks nice, even though I have no problem with phpbb's current appearance.

Where is the discussion on the general direction of phpBB 4 going on? Or what is the vision? I don't see anything on this "Development Discussion Board".

Note: This board does not automatically redirect to https and the link on the community board to here is http. If anyone can fix this, thanks!

That is by design, so we can also test stuff via HTTP ;).

Is there anywhere we can see the progress of phpbb 4? (code changes, features etc). I'm aware of the style dev thread (https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtop ... &t=2485796), but I haven't found any other threads.

I see we now have a 4.0 discussion forum.

Edit: If I want to comment on a feature, should I do it in this topic, or create a new topic in this forum?
