Count me among those thankful to the phpBB team for this upcoming release. I've been preparing for the upgrade since the first release candidates started to appear. So far our testing has gone very well and we're looking forward to updating a number of forums to this new release. I've got a follow on question to "Check out our 3.1 Feature Highlights
page which showcases some of the things we're most excited about."
Have I missed the link(s) to where can an administrator find more detailed information/documentation about the features/changes/improvements that impact both administrators and end users?
For example, are there any administrative changes required or recommended as part of the 3.0.12 to 3.1 upgrade process? I'm thinking there must be changes required to enable or configure new features such the Contact page, Gravatar Support, and OAuth Login.
There also seem to be a number of features/enhancements listed in Posts Tagged ‘ascraeus’ | Blog
that are not mentioned, such as enhanced timezone support, command line interface support to name a couple. I've also scanned Category:Release Highlights - phpBB Development Wiki
, which adds more to the list of features/enhancements in phpBB 3.1 that an administrator needs to know about.
My goal is to ensure a smooth transition to phpBB 3.1 and to be able to answer my forum members questions about what is changing and what they can expect from the new features.
