[Feature] Removing constant PHPBB_EMBEDDED in favor of using an exit_handler(); the constant was meant to achive this more or less.
[Feature] The new exit_handler() function having a check for the function exit_handler_phpbb_hook().
[Feature] Constant PHPBB_ADMIN_PATH introduced, having the same purpose as PHPBB_ROOT_PATH, but for the ACP.
[Fix] Further fixing user profile view (please do not forget to update/refresh your template and style) (Bug #14230)
[Fix] Adjust google adsense bot information (Bug #14296)
[Fix] Fix horizontal scrollbar problem in IE6 (Bug #14228) - fix provided by Danny-dev
[Fix] Use correct size values in ACP user signature screen (Bug #13367)
[Fix] Attachment Place inline won't work with single quotes (Bug #14291)
[Fix] Unable to save email templates through ACP language page (Bug #14266)
[Fix] Correctly set user style for guest user (able to be changed within user management)
[Change] Moved note about dns_get_record function for using GTalk (Jabber) from Jabber log to Jabber ACP panel

Not sure what you mean with the first quotes. What I quoted is the changelog from RC5, that I believe will be included in either RC6 or gold version, whatever comes... What's the purpose of doing just a few fixes now, and push them forward to 3.0.1... And including such changes in the changelog under "Changes from RC5", instead of "Changes from 3.0.0"... :|
Three clues make an evidence, aren't they?

As for the rest, tuvm, cr. (thank you very much, code reader)
And as we use to say (write?) here, tvtb (that is, ilu). :P

Security audit? and what does it mean for release date?

Post by code reader »

some interesting information here:
http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 0#p3182960
in short, acyd lets out that a security audit is still something that needs to happen before gold, the audit had not begun yet, and he predicts that the audit may result in an RC6...

I'd guess it will be relatively fast - it appears to be an external audit, for which they are paying. Given that people will be spending their 'professional' time on it, I wouldn't expect it to drag on.
