phpBB 3.0.10 released

Greetings community,

We are pleased to announce the release of phpBB "Bertie's new year present" 3.0.10. This version is a maintenance release fixing a number of bugs. Most noteworthy a number of moderator controls are now more precisely controlled by specific permissions instead of being available to all moderators. The display of the index page birthday list now also depends on the view profile permission. We have tested phpBB 3.0.10 with the upcoming PHP 5.4 release and made the necessary changes to ensure a smooth upgrade.

We urge you to update your installation as soon as possible. Our support team will only support phpBB 3.0.10, updates to phpBB 3.0.10 and conversions to phpBB 3.0.10. Submissions to our trackers for older versions will not be accepted, please make sure you update before you submit a bug report.

If you use a language pack other than the default "English [GB]", you should check our downloads section, an update may already be available.

We would also like to say a special thank you to everyone outside the development team who has contributed a patch to this release:
Callum Macrae, Vjacheslav Trushkin, Maƫl Soucaze, Patrick Webster, Alan, David King, Marc Alexander, Tabitha Backoff, Wendy Liu, dmauri and Victor Nagy. You can find a full list of contributors on our redesigned Area51 development section:

For a complete list of changes with attributed ticket numbers, please consult our comprehensive changelog.

Installation instructions

A short explanation of how to do a conversion, installation or update is included within the provided INSTALL.html file, please be sure to read it. You can find a list of requirements on our Downloads page.

  • Patch Files:

Select the package most suitable for you. We recommend the following methods depending on your situation:
  • For new installations you should use the Full Package
  • For updates of boards without modifications you can use the Automatic Update Package (guided update) 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.
  • International Support Teams may use the Patch Package in conjunction with the Code Changes to better support users with problematic conflicts during their update process or to help them update code sections.
  • If you are a hoster/provider, you may want to use the Patch Files Package to update all of your client installations.
