AFAIK, there were no style changes between RC3 and RC4. Go to this page, choose RC4 from the drop-down and you can get the style changes from RC4 to 3.0.6. There are only a couple and it's mostly for the quick reply editor :)

So... are we supposed to see RSS icons somewhere in the forum after it's enabled? I don't see how/where I can get the RSS link...

There are no icons (although style authors can enable them in their styles) - the icons are displayed in your browser (in firefox it is displayed in the location bar for example).

Is this forum already running 3.0.6? (As I see Quick Reply in test forum, I think the answer is 'YES')

Nice work all… :D

Am nervous about upgrading, will leave it a few days before I take the plunge on my important forum. But am looking forward to trying it out on the test forum!

Thanks guys

If I update and something goes wrong what could be the consequences - the whole board not working or just the mods not working? And can there be issues with the style (polyethylene btw) in your opinion?
That's why you should try the update locally first. So you do not crash the live-board.

Why do you need one, and cant you use the automatic updater?

It never seems to work for me.
Besides, my style is heavily modified so I need to do a lot of updates manually.

The automatic updater was significantly improved for 3.0.6 and should work for practically any board.
The style changes can be found here: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 4&t=880735
