could you please provide information on what kind of support should people who install this version expect?

will there be an upgrade path from RCx to final version?
will RCx forums receive similar support to what 3.0 users get?
what do you think of people using RCx with live forums?

thanks a bunch,
peace.

So I am not sure of the answer to this, and not sure if this is the right place to post this, but here goes. My host is running php 5.3.28, and I know the requirement is 5.3.3 for php. But, I also know that not all companies do updates in the same way, so is 5.3.28 a higher release than 5.3.3 or a lower release? Did they add the 8 to a 5.3.2 release or is 5.3.28 like the sequential number counting up from 5.3.3 to 5.3.4 to 5.3.5 .... 5.3.28?

Thanks for your help.

Phil

Why there two redirects to discuss the same thing?

Questions:
1.s there any plan to support the STK?

2.Seeing as automod is obsolete and will not be supported for phpBB3.1 what is the replacement? The extension management built in in the ACP? If so, how do you install the extensions? Drop the folders where?

3.Any plan to have the extensions maintained by the official phpBB team to be downloadable and installable directly from ACP?

4. Any idea about How many RC releases are planned before the official release? I red that there was a plan to release something for the summer? ( I cant find the reference anymore)

5. Regarding this: ( The authentication system is now capable of supporting OAuth based login mechanisms, such as Facebook Connect or Google+ Logins) Can we have a better explanation about how things work? any active topics regarding this?

6. Regarding Twig. http://twig.sensiolabs.org/ is there any example on how you would use it in custom templates?


7. Is there an available list of extension the team is working on? This would be useful to avoid author on working on maybe an extension the team is already working on

8. Is a rewrite urls supported in phpBB3.1 ?

9. Better clarity regarding the people that are part of the team would be great and this was already asked.. when you read a post from a registered user that is actually part of the team is kinda puzzling and you dont know if it is a proper post. For example who's "Oleg" ?

10. Is there a demo package that simulate a simple extension with UCP and ACP modules etc? soemthing you can then build upon and expand for custom extension? Yes I guess a "quick start" package.

Thanks!

you put them in a a directory specified by the extension author in ext/
3.Any plan to have the extensions maintained by the official phpBB team to be downloadable and installable directly from ACP?
I don't think that is planned for 3.1.
4. Any idea about How many RC releases are planned before the official release? I red that there was a plan to release something for the summer? ( I cant find the reference anymore)
When it is stable a final version is released. There is no planned amount of RCs.

5. Regarding this: ( The authentication system is now capable of supporting OAuth based login mechanisms, such as Facebook Connect or Google+ Logins) Can we have a better explanation about how things work? any active topics regarding this?
Iam sure there will be documentation for it when the final is released

6. Regarding Twig. http://twig.sensiolabs.org/ is there any example on how you would use it in custom templates?
What kind of example would you want?


7. Is there an available list of extension the team is working on? This would be useful to avoid author on working on maybe an extension the team is already working on
Currently the extensions in development by the extension development team are posted in extensions in dev, posted by Exreaction. He mentions in the first post it is a team project

8. Is a rewrite urls supported in phpBB3.1 ?
You would need a extension
9. Better clarity regarding the people that are part of the team would be great and this was already asked.. when you read a post from a registered user that is actually part of the team is kinda puzzling and you dont know if it is a proper post. For example who's "Oleg" ?
Teammembers have a rank here at phpBB.com. Oleg is a former team member, which you can also notice by his rank below his avatar.
10. Is there a demo package that simulate a simple extension with UCP and ACP modules etc? soemthing you can then build upon and expand for custom extension? Yes I guess a "quick start" package.
Iam not sure if there is a full example yet, but there are some stickies in extensions in development to show how everything works.

I think that a tool like the STK will be available at a moment yes.

You can see the extension management as a replacement for automod yes. And to install the extension you have to do what is said in the readme of some extensions :
Installation
1) Download the latest release and unzip it.
2) Copy the entire contents from the unzipped folder to phpBB/ext/vse/similartopics/.
3) Navigate in the ACP to Customise -> Manage extensions.
4) Find Precise Similar Topics under "Disabled Extensions" and click Enable.

I don't think so

Like for the beta, as many as necessary
Neuropass wrote: 6. Regarding Twig. http://twig.sensiolabs.org/ is there any example on how you would use it in custom templates?
The old syntax (<!-- IF --> etc...) is still available. But you can also use the Twig syntax (and you can use the both in the same template file) you have nothing to do for that.

I don't think so, but i guess that all of them are presented in the [3.1.x] Extensions in Development section
Neuropass wrote: 8. Is a rewrite urls supported in phpBB3.1 ?
No, you need an extension for that.

You can find a lot of examples in the [3.1.x] Extensions in Development. There is also a "phpbb-ext-acme-demo" but i am not sure that is ready yet.

EDIT: Paul was faster :'(

There is also a "How to convert a phpBB 3.0 MOD into a phpBB 3.1 Extension" which explains most of the stuff related to mods/extensions:
https://github.com/nickvergessen/howto- ... phpbb31ext

And yes, Acme/Demo still works

At this moment in time we are working on: We are likely to make more and when 3.1 goes stable (Meaning 3.1.0 is released) there will be information on the website about the official extensions.
