This extension is not validated and should only be used on a test forum. If you install it on a live forum and issues arise don't blame me.

Could you please explain more in detail?
So not only the edited post will be marked up?

Not sure how much clearer I can make it. If the first post of a topic is edited, it will be marked as unread for others. If the last post of a topic is edited it too will be marked as unread for others.

It does the same thing as the 3.0.x Mod.

I installed the ext.
It only works if the full editor is used for editing the post (no quick edit)?

In viewforum the topic is not flagged as "unread".

Ah! So if a post in the middle is changed, noting will happen?

It should work for either though I am not aware of a "quick edit" function in phpBB and if a post in the middle is changed nothing will happen.

Assuming the quick edit thingy uses the submit_post function then it will act the same as normal editing.

No that isn't possible as that is how phpBB determines which posts are unread...by the date of the post.

Is it possible to enable this extension for posts that are between first and last?

If someone edits a post on page 3 of a topic, and the last post is on page 5, I'll never know it unless someone quotes the edit in a reply...

Great idea. :)
