next version would be beta 4 IMO

The version in CVS has changed to B4-dev

Code: Select all

INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('version', '3.0.B4-dev');
Anyways

Well done dev-Team !!!

Try and find the thread where someone "deduced" there'd be a beta 3 right after beta 2 was released, just by the version bump to b3-dev. It was fully explained then. It's just because they need to give it some value higher than b3.

Eek... I'm sure this is lovely for Chines boards, but to me, running a western board, this is like a whole new range of bullshit (no offence intended, but I can absolutely not read these characters, nor can probably 99% of my users) names people could register with. I hope there are some good controls to limit the allowed characters on your board.

I didn't say UTF-8 is a bad thing, I'm just saying that I want a way to prevent users on my board to use any UTF-8 character they please for user names (which, in my view, has become a bigger issue with all these foreign characters opened up). Which might well already be in the product, for all I know. I wasn't complaining :)

There might be something wrong with your download.

I think the next version will not be RC1, but B4, for the Unicode bugs :mrgreen:
Anyway, keep up the good work :D ;)

Contrary to going from RC to gold, bugs can be fixed when going from beta to RC. As long as there are no big issues, we could see RC1 next. But sure, beta4 is another possibility, obviously.

You do realise that limitation of allowed characters for user registration has been in the ACP preceding Beta3, indeed before Beta1 and has been in CVS at least around M1, which is oooooh... some 3 years old?
