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.

- The phpBB Team

I'd just like to point out that this has been further extended as follows:
  • End of Maintenance (EOM): June 2017 (June 30th 2017)
  • End of Life (EOL): December 2017 (December 31st 2017)
Please also take a look at our Release process page for an explanation on the meaning of End of Maintenance (EOM) and End of Life (EOL).

Thank you,
The phpBB Team
