phpBB 3.2 Rhea Feature Release Published

Image

Today is a big day for the entire phpBB community and we hope that you're as excited as we are! With the help of over one hundred volunteers, we have improved and extended phpBB to provide the new and improved phpBB 3.2 Rhea.

The new phpBB 3.2 Rhea builds upon 3.1 Ascraeus, upgrading the experience for users, administrators, and developers. The new BBCode parser adds support for all the emojis you've been using on mobile devices, the new font awesome integration adds retina quality icons to prosilver, and the quoting feature has been enhanced. Together with Symfony 2.8, an improved integration of the twig template engine, and full support for both PHP 7.0 & 7.1, we have increased extensibility of phpBB 3.2 while reducing development time.

Board admins will apprecite the new installer, which enables easier updating using the browser or a command-line interface, as well as the newly added reCAPTCHA 2.0 to thwart would-be spammers at the gate.

Check out further highlights of the new version on our Rhea Launch Page or a more detailed breakdown on our Features Page. As always, phpBB 3.2 Rhea and update packages for previous versions are available in the downloads section.

The phpBB community has been working hard to get this release prepared and work on phpBB 3.3 Proteus is already underway!

In order to better engange with the community, we will be enabling the ideas center in the coming days.

We would like to thank everyone for working hard to make today possible! The following people contributed code to the 3.2 Rhea release: Marc Alexander, Tristan Darricau, Joas Schilling, Andreas Fischer, JoshyPHP, Mate Bartus, Michael Miday, Nils Adermann, Cesar G, Matt Friedman, Máté Bartus, Oliver Schramm, Nicofuma, Dhruv, MateBartus, brunoais, Christian Schnegelberger, rxu, Gaëtan Muller, Zoddo, s9e, Jakub Senko, Richard McGirr, David King, n-aleha, Nathaniel Guse, Mark Shaw, David Colón, Nicolas Grekas, hjpotter92, lavigor, Derek Held, Erwan Nader, LEZY Thomas, Paul Sohier, Scott Dutton, Wesley Fok, cunha17, C1n, Dan Villiom Podlaski Christiansen, Derky, Etienne Baroux, Greg Ryckman, Melvin García, MichaelC, RFD, Sumanai, cyberalien, kasimi, kilida

phpBB 3.2.0-RC2 released

Greetings all,

We are pleased to announce the release of phpBB 3.2.0-RC2 "Bertie Reconnaissance Orbiter". This is the second release candidate of the upcoming phpBB 3.2.0 feature release and introduces major changes and new functionality.
Among the new features are the inclusion of VigLink as an extension in the phpBB package, full PHP 7.1 compatibility, as well as SVG emojis, and OAuth v1 support. You can read more about the inclusion of VigLink in our blog post phpBB to ship with VigLink extension.
The second release candidate also further improves timeout handling in the installer and while running database migrations, introduces several improvements to the new BBCode parser, and solves issues with email parsing that were present in the previous release candidate.
In addition to that, both the support for SQLite 2.8.x and the PHP MSSQL extension have been dropped as these are no longer supported in our minimum PHP version 5.4.0. Support for newer versions of those database types is available through SQLite 3 and MSSQL ODBC or MSSQL native respectively.

The full changelog is available in the changelog file within the docs folder contained in the release package. You can find the key highlights of this release candidate on the wiki at https://wiki.phpbb.com/Release_Highlights/3.2.0-RC2 and a list of all issues fixed on our tracker at https://tracker.phpbb.com/issues/?filter=14090

phpBB 3.1.10 Release - Please Update

Greetings everyone,

We are pleased to announce the release of phpBB 3.1.10 "Bertie's Indian summer". This version is a maintenance & security release of the 3.1.x branch which fixes one trivial security issue and various smaller bugs. The security issue only affects users using no longer supported versions of browsers as well as improperly setup webservers (thanks to Lukas Reschke of Nextcloud for reporting this).
The bugfixes address the Q&A captcha logging errors when it was solved, fatal errors when upgrading from 3.0.x in certain cases, and database transactions not being rolled back with incorrect notification settings. Other changes include an improved migrator and hardened form checking in the Admin Control Panel.
It also adds support for UI tests in extensions and now checks the version constant against the config version to notify users of incomplete updates.

The full changelog is available in the changelog file within the docs folder contained in the release package. You can find the key highlights of this release on the wiki at https://wiki.phpbb.com/Release_Highlights/3.1.10 and a list of all issues fixed on our tracker at https://tracker.phpbb.com/issues/?filter=13908

Extended maintenance schedule for phpBB 3.1 Ascraeus

Greetings everyone,

While approaching the release of phpBB 3.2.0 Rhea (see phpBB 3.2 Rhea is near – help us test it now!), some of you might have noticed that we're also close to the intially planned End of Maintenance (EoM) for phpBB 3.1 Ascraeus.

Based on the release timetable we targeted around the release of phpBB 3.1 Ascraeus, this would have given administrators about 6 months of maintenance and a year of security updates to migrate to the latest phpBB branch. Following some small delays and the decision to advance the development of several important features, we were forced to amend the previous release timetable for phpBB Rhea 3.2.

We're extending the time frame phpBB 3.1 will receive maintenance and security fixes accordingly. The timetable for 3.1 is now as follows:
  • End of Maintenance (EOM): December 2016
  • End of Life (EOL): June 2017
Our release process page has been updated to reflect these changes.

If you have any questions or comments, we'll be happy to address them in the discussion topic.

End of Support for phpBB 3.0.x

Hello,

As of 0:00 UTC January 1st, 2017, we will no longer be providing support for phpBB 3.0.x. The support forums will be locked, but will be still be available in a read-only form for reference. All download links for phpBB 3.0.x will be removed. If you still need those packages, you will be able to obtain them from SourceForge or download.phpbb.com.

It is recommended that you use these seven months to prepare for converting to phpBB 3.1.x or 3.2.x when it becomes available. While support for 3.0.x will not be available, support for converting to 3.1.x or 3.2.x will be available in their respective forums.

For those who receive support from an international support site, they will dictate their own support schedules and you should seek information from them.

As a reminder, phpBB 3.0.x is already in its End of Life phase and is no longer receiving maintenance or security fixes. While there are no known vulnerabilities in phpBB 3.0.14, it is recommended that you upgrade to a fully supported version. For more information about the current release and support timelines, see the phpBB Release, Security and Support Plan announcement and the Release & Update Policy page.

Thank you,
The phpBB Team
