Two data points to report using my localhost testing environment and following the steps in https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3 ... date_full/
  • On a CentOS 8 (Stream) server, with PHP 7.4.27, the update went smoothly and no issues reported or seen so far during post-update sanity testing.
  • On a CentOS 7.9.2009 server, with PHP 8.0.15, the update went smoothly and no issues reported or seen so far during post-update sanity testing.
Working my way through sanity testing of the Notable Improvements.

Thanks team.

Any new news about the final release of phpBB 3.3.6 that can be reported? Generally a RC release is followed shortly afterwards with an Announcements.

Yes I know and respect the following:

Rule #1
<include standard_disclaimer>
phpBB x.x.x will be released when it is ready to be released.
</include>

Just a little curious because the gap between RC release and release announcement typically isn't measured in weeks or a month.

I know, patience and see Rule #1. 8-)

You have already answered yourself. When the question already contains the answer, I would say.
