*adds another feature to the 3.2 list*

Okay, 3.2 is starting to sound REALLY appealing.
The "newbie" user group is a MOD we are working on right now, as it has been requested quite a few times.

Well... yuo don't have to do it yourself after Gold is out. There will be people that may do it for other people and then release it for everybody. That way people that DONT konw PHP don't haev to worry about messnig up their board. ;)

Just so I'm very clear on this, Gold is the name for the final release package of phpBB3?

It's not so much a name, though. "Gold Release" is just used as a synonym to "final release", not just with phpBB but with many other projects.

It's become known as a "gold" release because in the world of mass-reproduced media the original master copy of the product that all the copies are taken from could be made of gold (which is very resistant to corrosion and weathering effects).
