It will be a while yet I'm sure. It hasn't even been released for QA testing, so your safe for a bit. ;)

phpBB 3.0.8 RC1 should be released quite soon, probably within the next month.

phpBB 3.0.8 will probably be released a few weeks after that depending on if a 3.0.8 RC2 is needed.

You think so? According to the roadmap there are still 60 unresolved issues, while there are 185 issues solved in the past ~half year (since phpBB 3.0.7-PL1)
My extensions:
Simple CMS, Feed post bot, Avatar Resize, Modbreak, Magic OGP, Live topic update, Modern Quote, Quoted Where (GDPR) and Autoresponder.
Newest: FAQ manager for 3.2

Like my work? Buy me a coffee to keep it coming. :ugeek:

Some of those won't be bugs or are awaiting information from the ticket reporter.

Also A_Jelly_Doughnut (Dev Team Member) has said it in public a few weeks back here.

So a november release shouldn't surprise anyone. Hopefully there won't be too many style edits. :)

You never know. Could be later. There are a number of variables to consider. A_Jelly_Dounut also said weeks about 6 weeks ago.... Obviously that isn't the case yet considering it's already halfway through October and an RC hasn't even been released.

I would always go with the usual response. "When it's ready". Then you know you not setting yourself up for dissapointment. :)

Bumping these kind of topics won't speed up the process and as usually there is no set release date ;). You can track progress on 3.1.x here and here.

Can you tell if there will be new features or just patches?

It's a maintenance release. There are no new features. Only bugfixes and security updates.
