Yes. Grab a beta, or better yet, a recent CVS copy, install, and test, test, test.

And post everything that seems to be wrong to the BugTracker! ;)

I think I have found a way to help.... purchase VBulletin (my moderators are getting so sick of hearing me say: Please, just wait... we will get phpBB 3 SOON... I PROMISE!) LOL

Well, you shouldn't make promises others have to keep for you ;) I personally did almopst the same, though, when three years ago I was saying that I was waiting for the new version of phpBB for certain features. When it started to take longer, I shut up, and even later I decided having a few mods wasn't so bad I always thought ;) You may just want to look into the many mods that are available for phpBB to relieve some of the most pressing issues you have.

When can the RC1 or the Final version be expected.... I am getting tired of waiting... I think.. few weeks ago.. I read somewhere that there are only three bugs left... So why is the delay?

Beta3 is next.
The final version is ready when it's ready.

Would you rather they released it tomorrow with bugs still in it? Possibly serious ones because they haven't been tested yet?

There's nothing to stop you using a perfectly good phpbb2 install and upgrading when the time comes.

That's rather facetious. Many - myself included - are anxiously waiting for v3 because we're switching from other packages (IPB here), and need the feature parity v3 will provide. Switching from IPB 2.1 to PHPBB2 would be a disaster for us.

So stay with IPB for a little bit longer.

They haven't got a gun to your head over it.

It's not being facetious, it's being practical. If you're planning everything over something that has never and will never have a pre-announced release date then you've gone about it the wrong way.

You don't HAVE to switch to phpbb3. You've got a perfectly good functioning forum. Just stick with it until v3 does come out.
