3.0.x support after 3.1 release ?

Post by hexplor »

Hi Guys,
Just wondering, is 3.0.x gonna be supported somehow after 3.1 release ? I mean 3.1 is a major revision. It's not fully backward compatible when it comes to styles, so I wonder if you guys planning on releasing fixes (security updates etc..) to 3.0.x branch or you guys switching completely to 3.1 ?

Many boards are so heavily modified, that they won't be able to switch any time soon. So I expect 3.0 to be dominant for quite a while.

Therefore we can assume that 3.0.12 will continue to get security updates if they are serious, but no new features.

phpBB2 was support for a year after phpBB3 came out. I suspect a similar thing will happen.
