I think we will have to wait a bit more actually. Have anyone heard any rumors of a Beta6 (look down in the picture)?

as stated many times before,

the B6-dev indicates only that they are working on the next version,
this could be either a beta 6 or an RC1

Time will tell wich one it will be

8O Really?

:P

Based on what Meik said before, I still don’t think there have been enough bugs for there to be a Beta6.
Counting on an RC1, but I’m not counting on prosilver with it.

The funny thing is that the prosilver-ish ACP style was actually designed BEFORE the subsilver-ish ACP style. :D

and i hope prosilver will be available in beta-6.
every major component of the software deserves at least one round of beta.
long time ago, when the question of "when will the converter be available?" was discussed, the developers always said: "no later than rc1, but we are undecided if it will be available before that".
just imagine what a disaster it would have been if they were to wait with the converter until rc1. so far dozens, if not hundreds of bugs relating to the converter were reported and fixed. i think that the converter is ready now for rc, but i may be wrong here. i am absolutely sure that the converter that was introduce to the cvs sometime after beta-4 was NOT ready for rc.

the new style, ie prosilver, is different enough from anything that predated it, and has enough issues/bugs to justify at least one round of beta.

so far, almost every beta cycle also introduce at least one new significant component:
  • beta-1: olympus
  • beta-2: utf-8
  • beta-3: new (>32) custom bbcodes (true, this was not that significant)
  • beta-4: software update infrastructure (hopefully can be expanded in the future to support MODs). unfortunately, i don't feel that this component received as much testing as it deserves, so it might not be as clean as it should.
  • beta-5: phpbb2 -> phpbb3 converter. with it, first serious testing of large (=converted) boards begun, which, in turn, helped uncover issues in seemingly unrelated areas such as backup/restore.
  • (future) beta-6?: prosilver?
and then, we will be ready for rc1.

just my 2c, of course.

I see what you are saying codereader, but I reckon that using prosilver on the main site will be the test rather than a B6?
