We should no longer support 3.0 Olympus (since that's the end of life for that older version) and finally release 3.2 Rhea by this month according to the release plan schedule.

Thank you,

Where does it say that? If you read the announcement it says
Support may be provided past this point and the support team will give at least 6 months notice before the End of Support for a particular version.

End of life for 3.0.x is upon us but 3.1.x is still missing many language packs.

The modifications category has also been set to hidden in the Customisations Database.
Is this why all the downloads in the 3.0.x mod database are sending an empty zip file? Are they no longer accessible or am I doing something wrong? If they're no longer accessible at all that will make me :cry:

I just tried it out and it is working fine for me.

I thought 3.2 Rhea will come out last month according to the plan schedule he says, well that's been delayed until I expect for this month or later because I'm waiting for the new phpBB branch to come out so I can update my forum version from 3.1 Ascraeus to 3.2 Rhea to stay up-to-date.

What is now the next version 3.2.0 or 3.1.7? Because they are both in development at the development forum.

Only 3.2 is in development and will eventually be the next major release. 3.1.7 is the next maintenance release of the current major version.

Maybe this topic should get update with new (anticipated) dates?
I mean it's better than people posting here saying "why isn't phpbb 3.2 here yet" and all

It's already not worthwhile since support for 3.0 will still end at some point soon. Those already on 3.1 should (mostly) breeze by on the update to 3.2, but those on 3.0 will find their MODs lost just like going from 3.0 to 3.1. So going to either 3.1 or 3.2 you're going to end up with the same result upgrading from 3.0.

support not really an issue for me tbh as when I say modding I mean by myself not relying on the mods forum etc.

Ive held off on the 3.1 update as themes from 3.0 to 3.1 wont work and then read again that they wont work from 3.1 to 3.2 or atleast I think ive read that right :? dont really fancy doing my theme twice :( besides 3.0.x is running tickety boo the now.

I would upgrade to 3.1 today and do my theme if knew for certain that it will work on 3.2 along with the advertisement management mod which works fine on my 3.1 test forum.

a rough estimate would be great for me to plan ahead.
