Re: phpBB 4 Or Next Version?

When everyone has really fast computers, and internet speeds become super fast everywhere, the online community of forums is going to be amazing.

I'd say around the time of version 5.0 we'll have super high resolution monitors, and seeing someone on the webcam will be like looking at someone through a window.

The sound would be great too, as if they were in the room with you.

Some features for this release would be:

* Live webcam feed as avatar (if user is online)
* Log in with thumb scan / and voice
* 200,000 different kinds of styles to choose from.

I'm sure you could think of many more.

Hehe.

Now that would be really cool, just sit back relaxing while Bertie does all the moderating and installs mods perfectly! :D

Yes, I believe work has already begun on phpBB 3.1 and phpBB 3.0.8.

There's also some room to discuss at Area51. :)

We should be seeing a Release Candidate of 3.0.8 pretty soon. You can view the progress of 3.0.8-RC1 here: http://tracker.phpbb.com/browse/PHPBB3# ... dmap-panel

I don't care what phpBB version is out.

IMO All phpBB version are really great and really cool. The difference from phpBB2 and phpBB3 are so great. I love phpBB. I did have vBulliten and SMF but vBulliten was complex for me when it comes to MODs and the ACP was more difficult SMF just wasn't all there.

I have used phpBB for about 3-4 years now and I will never consider any other forum based software. phpBB is just the best you can get and everything is great. The phpBB team members and all its wonderful users who help to support one an other are whats making it more powerful. With all the communication, help available and MODs along with all the styles phpBB is the most powerful-est Bulletin Board around.

It continuously keeps getting better. :D

phpBB4 is quite a ways down the line for phpBB (3.1 and 3.2 will be released first, for instance). There (like every other phpBB-related project) is currently no estimated release date, but I would not expect it for a few years. Consequentially, it is useless to speculate what the product will be like when it has barely entered planning ;)

phpBB is the only forum software that makes sense imo. It's structured well, and the admin panel is easy to navigate.

My only gripes are plugins and those blasted parsed templates. I'd love to see a WP style plugin and template system. After all, PHP is a templating language at heart.

Regarding plug-ins: Explaining Hooks. And you won't have to wait for phpBB 4.x to get them.
