We are pleased to announce the release of phpBB 3.1.12 "Bertie’s look back at Mars". This version is a security release of the 3.1.x branch which fixes one security issue and also adds one minor feature addition, as well as fixing various issues reported in previous versions.
As a minor feature addition, phpBB now also supports Memcached caching. This was merged before the EoM (End of Maintenance) and is therefore also part of this package.
Since the End of Life (EOL) date of the phpBB 3.1 branch has been passed, this also marks the last release in the phpBB 3.1 line. It will not continue to receive any maintenance or security updates.
The fixed issues include, among others, issues with updating older password hashes on PostgreSQL, an issue when using the Sphinx search backend, and with one migration during upgrades.
The full list of changes 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/3.1.12 and a list of all issues fixed on our tracker at https://tracker.phpbb.com/issues/?filter=14392
