My "waiting patiently for" list:

1. Modular authentication system.
2. Everything else.

Wow, I just noticed an awesome new feature - when you reply to a topic, phpBB makes you review any new replies since you hit the reply button :D

1.EVERYTHING already posted (some things in there I didn't even know about :oops:)...
2. Smilies added at cursor, not at the end of the post! :D
3. Everything not yet posted, but that will be as long as it is good :P :roll: ;)

P.S. Is the style on the CVS going to be the permanent style? I like it, but it's kinda plain...

No, as has been said several times, Olympus will have a new style when it releases - which you won't see until the gold release.

i know phpbb 3.0.0 will have a new style but that i didn't know.

will there then be no complications when one install a betas (even if it's not the first beta) and one will upgrade to the final version (RC)?

it would be easier to offer the new style with the first beta? or wouldnt' it?

1. the new style system (my forum is part of my site; my site is not an extension of the forum, I need it to look like that, and am bored of breaking the 2.0.x code to make it work as such)
2. post approval
3. permissions overhaul

No - as Paul has said in the announcement, we're keeping it under wraps to stop people copying it onto other software before we've released it - which is what happened with subSilver.

I'm missing the karma system. The best admin additions for me are
*Permissions
*Subforums
*Reports
As for the user part
*Friends and Foes
*Ucp. You feel you're someone important woth so many things to set/play with :D
Don't give me my freedom out of pity!
