3.2 is not released (And should not be used in production yet), so it is not supprising that there are not many extensions specific for 3.2 ;). Also, most extensions for 3.1 already work for 3.2.

Are you reading what the rest of us are reading? Because that page clearly states PHP 5.6 active support ends "31 Dec 2016", which is basically done on 1 January 2017:

There isn't even anything on there about 2019...

So active support is pretty much what is being talked about. And security support is only being provided if there is an actual security issue reported. Either way maintenance for 5.6 will end at the end of this year.

So now we turned from "no support" to "there is in fact some security support".
Good to know.

So we're back to square one: web hosting services will procrastinate the support to PHP7 as much as possible, since they have no interest into supporting a new version of something that already works as intended (and spend money to achieve that).

Mind to provide some statistics about your assertion?

With all due respect, Paul's post already mentioned "active support" from the very start, so we haven't turned from anything to something else. Just noting that. :)

I've seen many support requests of people using PHP7 and lots of major web hosting companies adding switches to their cPanel that allow people to choose their PHP version themselves. I might not have scientific evidence for that but it's a trend becoming very clear from following our support forum.

Having said that, I want to note that this is not the place to have this discussion. This topic is for the development and support of this extension. I'll be happy to discuss this with you somewhere else.

Major web hosting companies are not the majority.

Anyway, I'm just disappointed about Paul's choice for PHP support, though it's up to him decide about his own extension. This was a debate about extension development as well: if few people can use it, development effort won't be profitable.

This will be a reason to update to 3.2 also for me!
Thanks Paul ;)

Added a very early version on github. Currently it works by using [mention]USERNAME[/mention] or [mention]USER_ID[/mention]. In the coming weeks I will add a javascript frontend so @USERNAME can be used.

Please note that phpBB 3.2.0RC2 and higher (Will not work properly on 3.1 or 3.2RC1!!!), and that you should not use it on a production board.

Are you also going to support the quick reply function and the Quickreply Reloaded extension? Or is this only functional using the full reply?
