phpBB 3.2.3 Release

Post by Marc »

Greetings everyone,

We are pleased to announce the release of phpBB 3.2.3 "Bertie's long summer". This version is a maintenance release of the 3.2.x branch which fixes various issues reported in previous versions.

The fixed issues include, among others, problems when submitting posts with more than one attachment, migrations failing when updating from versions prior to phpBB 3.2.2 and PHP warnings being displayed when editing signatures in the ACP.

Notable changes are the dropped support for HHVM (HipHop Virtual Machine) and more prominent links to privacy policy and the terms of use.

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 and a list of all issues fixed on our tracker at

The packages can be downloaded from our downloads page.

The development team thanks everyone who contributed code to this release: rxu, hubaishan, JoshyPHP, Rubén Calvo, Akbar, Anssi Johansson, Daniel Mota, Daniel Sinn, FH, GerB, Zoddo, canonknipser, scootergrisen

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