Going to upgrade the forums soon....

Postby ZiggyZoomba » Tue Nov 24, 2009 7:15 pm

Probably going to be a little downtime involved. The holiday weekend seems like a good time to do it. We shall see....

Hello,

We are very pleased to announce the availability of the phpBB "Fast and Furrious" 3.0.6 package. This release fixes numerous bugs, introduces some major features, as well as improves stability and performance. Furthermore, the internal updater has been updated to detect and solve most conflicts, resulting in a reduction of necessary manual interaction by administrators.

Please note that we urge you to update. phpBB 3.0.6 fixes bugs being quite important for a smooth operation of your forums. With this release our support team will only give support for the latest version, updates to phpBB 3.0.6 and conversions to it. Submissions to our trackers for older versions will not be accepted, please make sure you update/upgrade before you submit a bug report.

If you use a different language pack than the one provided with the download packages you may find already updated language packs for your language within our downloads section.

For a complete list of new major features, minor feature additions, changes and bug fixes, please consult our comprehensive changelog at:
http://www.phpbb.com/support/documents. ... ion=3#v305

The original announcement is located at:
http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &t=1859035


*Minimum Requirements*

phpBB3 has a few requirements which must be met before you are able to install and use it.

- A webserver or web hosting account running on any major Operating System with support for PHP
- A SQL database system, one of:
* MySQL 3.23 or above (MySQLi supported)
* PostgreSQL 7.3+
* SQLite 2.8.2+
* Firebird 2.1+
* MS SQL Server 2000 or above (directly or via ODBC)
* Oracle
- PHP 4.3.3+ (>=4.3.3, >4.4.x, >5.x.x, >6.0-dev (compatible)) with support for the database you intend to use.
- getimagesize() function need to be enabled
- The optional presence of the following modules within PHP will provide access to additional features, but they are not required.
* zlib Compression support
* Remote FTP support
* XML support
* Imagemagick support
* GD Support

The presence of each of these optional modules will be checked during the installation process.

*Security*

Security issues found should be reported to our security tracker (http://www.phpbb.com/security/) in the usual way.

*Available packages*

If you experience problems with the automatic update (white screens, timeouts, etc.) we recommend using the "changed files only" or "patch" method for updating.

With this release, there are five packages available.

Full Package: Contains entire phpBB3 source and english language files.

Automatic Update Package: Update package for the automatic updater, containing the changes from previous release to this release.

Changed Files Only: Contains only those files changed from previous versions of phpBB3. Please note this archive contains changed files for each previous release.

Patch Files: Contains patch compatible patches from previous versions of phpBB3.

Code Changes Package: Package contains changes to the following sections: Language changes, prosilver style changes and subsilver2 style changes.

Select whichever package is most suitable for you. As a tiny guide we recommend the following methods based on the requirements:

- For a new installation you should use the Full Package
- For updates of boards without modifications you can basically use the Automatic Update Package (guided udpate) or the Changed Files Only package (manual update).
- For updates of boards with modifications you should use the Automatic Update Package. If you are confident with patch files and patching you can use the Patch Files Package.
- Style Authors and Translators may use the Code Changes Package to update their styles or language packs directly.
- International Support Teams may use the Patch Package in conjunction with the Code Changes to better support users having problems with conflicts or specific code sections.
- If you are a hoster/provider, you may want to use the Patch Files Package to update all of your client installations.

*Please ensure you read the INSTALL and README documents in docs/ before proceeding with installation, updates or conversions!*

*Download Locations*

You can of course find this download available on our downloads page at: http://www.phpbb.com/downloads/

All three of their goals were just grit and effort. That's a team any fan can be proud to support...they give all they've got."
