phpBB is feature frozen so no new features, however there are several bug and security fixes.

you will need to update using the code changes package, this is effectively a txt file in the format of a mod install file which gives you the instructions to manually edit and update the files to bring them up to date. This should allow you to update the forum files around the mod code you have added to the file thus keeping your installed mods.

if its code changes, can that be done with easy mod, so that all unaltered files can be done auto, and i'd have to do only some of it manually? would that work?

Yes, the code changes can be done with easymod in the same fashion as mods :) Be careful to preview the changes using easymod before doing them to check for any errors.

easy mod has a feature where you can check the changes it is going to make before it makes them so you can make sure it can make all the find and edits ok, how ever for support with using easy mod correctly you will need to seek easymod support from http://area51.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewforum.php?f=15
