When I test the development version of 3.3, it is shown as 3.3.0-a1.
Well, the branch 3.3.x at github (development) is currently set at 3.3.0-b2-dev
See: https://github.com/phpbb/phpbb/blob/b6f ... ts.php#L31

I am not sure what version you are testing, may be an old snapshot?

On the subject line of the first post of a topic, there is a picture called by <img src="./images/icons/misc/Sphbla.gif" width="14" height="14" alt="" title="" />.
AFAIK, this directory doesn't exist.

Both local and live fresh installs: nope.

Sorry for the heads up, this is a kind of tagging scheme using color bullets at the beginning of the subject line, which was not installed on my test server.

Yes.

Add these lines to a .yml file in the config/ folder of an extension and purge the cache.

Are there any details anywhere of the changes (if any) in 3.3 that will/may affect extensions?
Not yet, but nothing about 3.3 should affect extensions.

Erm, well, extensions written the way we document them to be written.

Here are the bullet points:
  • PHP 7.1 is the minimum PHP version. In the rare case you are using some ancient deprecated and now removed PHP code, fix that.
  • jQuery 3.4.1 (up from 1.12.4) is now used. It should be fine. You can hack the jQuery Migrate plugin into phpBB on a dev board to see if it shows any issues in your scripts. For the most part you'll just see notices about old deprecated jQuery functions (like click() and bind()) that still work, but should be updated.
  • Symfony 3.4 is now used. It should be fine (unless you still are not quoting strings in your .yml files as recommended in our extension docs).
  • Twig 2 is now used. Should not affect any Twig template syntax you use.
Having said all that, unless you start using PHP 7.1 or newer code constructs, extensions from 3.1 and 3.2 can work in 3.3, and vice versa. It is after all, only a minor version update. Its biggest change is its upgraded dependencies to current standards.

The main failures will be with unit tests. PHPUnit is updated from v4 to v7 (I think) so the phpunit.xml.dist needs to be changed, as well as travis files, and some unit tests themselves. My ABBC3 extension's GitHub repo has a 3.3 branch which has already been updated to work in the 3.3 environment.
Has an irascible disposition.

Thanks Matt

I don't think that I have many, if any, issues with my extensions.

That will be the one that will catch the users out and break boards. It might be an idea to recommend (yes I know that most will not take notice) that all extensions are disabled before upgrading to 3.3
