PHPBB 4

Post by gamemaster355 »

This really isn't a MOD but I was wondering when the next version of PHPBB is going to come out. I would love to upgrade. Anybody have any guesses about how many months it will take?

No, this isn't a MOD at all, as the next version of phpBB will be a standard, un-modded release. As such, I will move this topic to phpBB Discussion. Please read the forum descriptions more carefully and post accordingly.

Having said that, the next version of phpBB is already being worked on. It will be released, when ready, as 3.2. Intermediate maintenance releases will continue to be made as needed. There is no date set for the 3.2 line. The typical response is that it is ready when it is ready. As this is a project involving volunteers, we do not put a deadline on new versions. More than five years elapsed between the initial releases of 2.0 and 3.0. See the History page for more information. It would be impossible to make an accurate guess as to the release date for 3.2, and certainly quite difficult to guess for 4.0. ;)

That being said, let me refraise his question, what parts are left to do for the next version and whats the over all tasks that are not done yet. that would give us a better understanding of when it will be released :mrgreen:

The next version in the 3.x line will be phpBB 3.1. This blog post contains some information. Development is ongoing and community contributions are welcome. More information can be found at area51. There is a feature freeze date which is May 31, but the exact release date is impossible to predict.

phpBB 4.x development has not really taken off yet. Some ideas have been discussed so far. The plan is for it to be built around the upcoming versions of Symfony and Doctrine, but considering those are both planned to be released in the fourth quarter of 2010 the focus is currently on phpBB 3.1.

Pretty much haha. It's more like you boot up phpBB.com and the latest news smacks you in the face. :D

The day after the day before its released. As usual there are no release dates and 4 is a long time away, especially looking at the fact that there isn't any code for it yet ;).

I am just extremely curious as to what the new default style will be that's going to replace prosilver. Or if your going to just keep prosilver and apply the new changes for phpBB4.

I would likewise be interested to know the answer to this question.

The release of phpBB4 is far enough away that no answer is yet available. The template portion, at the very least, would receive a complete overhaul.

As this is a discussion topic, can we please stop using that response? It might have been cute or funny at one time, but now it's just trite and a bit insulting (because the question is reasonable if you don't know how phpBB treats release dates, so the response comes across as snarky).

Something like you said here is a much more appropriate response:

Personally, I'd add that it's a volunteer effort, so scheduling like a traditional business isn't very practical.

In fact, maybe there could be an FAQ about release dates that you could just link to.

Just my $0.02....
