There's nothing wrong with a Quick Reply on a serious board. On a science forum I contribute to, we also have a Quick Reply. Spammy posts aren't allowed there, but there was a demand for a Quick Reply. Just because it's easy.

I am just putting together a new board and I'm wondering if I should wait for x6 or get on with x5.

If I start now with x5 I will be adding a number of mods, portal and custom theme, am I going to have a nightmare upgrading from x5 -> x6 and be better of waiting for and starting with x6?

I know ETA's are not given out but with the relativly swift movement from RC1 -> 2 -> 3 could someone throw a ball park estimate to the final release being Nov, Dec or 2010 for example?

Thanks

I'd start with a board though should wait with modifying it until 3.0.6 is released. Due to the great amount of changes there is a big risk of conflicts when you heavily modify your board. Though with the improved updater any conflict should be manageable pretty easy.

There is no way to say or even estimate it, it all depends on how things evolve. If the current RC3 is stable enough it could be released this month though if there are issues and more RCs are required it will take longer.

  • some comments in SVN hint that RC3 is probably the last one. as things seem now, the probability of RC4 for 3.0.6 look slim.
  • judging from the past, i would be very surprised if release will not happen in november (or maybe even in the 2.5 days left in october...)
  • in any event, i would not wait. the upgrade script has become really good, and the probability of unmanageable conflicts is slim to none
  • in your place, i would seriously consider installing RC3. in general it is not recommended to use an RC release in production environment, but the logic is different when you talk about a new forum: you do not have a working site, there is no data you might lose or corrupt, you do not yet have a community to piss off, and in general, all the reasoning *not* to use RC do not hold in the case of a new site. upgrade script from RC3 to final release is expected (specifically, Acyd have asked all the operators of international support sites to upgrade to each of the RC cycles - see the RC announcements).
peace.

At this moment there are 12 fix in SVN, for me that's mean we will have a RC4 :D

Oh you people...stop speculating already. There was just a commit done that pretty much announces RC4. ;)

is this a request or an order?

a previous check-in stated that RC4 is unlikely ("Seems like we see no RC4...").
a later check-in corrected this forecast. ("I am very sorry... but the changes require (a hopefully very short) RC4 phase") nothing wrong with that.

ordering people to avoid speculation is plain stupid. it's human nature, and people need to asses probability of future events in order to plan their actions.

peace.

Ever watch sports analysis? That's almost purely speculation. Horse races? 2 hours 50 minutes of speculation, and 10 minutes of an actual horse race. Quite common. :D

Neither. The smiley at the end should make it obvious that it's simply a tongue-in-cheek remark. David is well aware of the check-ins and was simply pointing out the new commit indicating that there will be an RC4. :)

There goes my October 31st prediction.

Someone should have started a "pool". ;)

We could do this on 3.0.7 or 3.1.0 - depends on what will be next... ;)

Hey, we could start a pool on that question, too... 8-)

apologies...
i got annoyed by the smileys, and instead of using the user control panel to turn off "Display smilies as images" (sp?) i used AddBlock to block http://www.phpbb.com/community/images/smilies.
i did not take into account that by doing so i may miss these kind of subtleties - i completely missed the smiley at the end of David's message... (funny thing is that i missed it even though i quoted it - i usually read the "preview" more carefully than i read the textarea, so i missed it while quoting it...)
so again, i apologize for my acrimonious response, and i fixed the problem - hopefully i won't miss this kind of thing in the future...


peace.
