I just went to check the downloads and Automatic Update tab for phpBB and noticed that the only packages available now are 3.1.0-RC releases or 3.1.0 to 3.1.1. Any reason the 3.0.12 to 3.1.1 update package was removed?
I've already successfully updated the main forum I run that's powered by phpBB to 3.1.1 from 3.0.12, and the upgrade went great. So just totally curious. The only thing I can think of is that when the automatic update script checked the existing files [before the database upgrade], I did notice that it got me to delete a bunch of files manually, which took a bit of time. But once I did that, everything went great, the install script was happy, and it proceeded to upgrade the database. So maybe the 3.0.12 to 3.1.1 package was just removed to encourage people to skip that manual deleting files step and just replace all the files? Any harm to the original 3.0.12 to 3.1.1 replace-and-delete-unneeded-files method?
