Hi,

This is a great news !! :D But i have some questions about it ...

Will it be possible to have the full features list of 3.2 like in 3.1 ?

And now that 3.2 have a new cli installer, will it be possible to migrate directly from 3.0.x to 3.2 with the new cli ?

Thanks in advance for your answers !

Will 3.1.x extensions work on 3.2? Or will they all require an update?

This is usually why I hate not being able to update right away when a major phpBB release becomes available, since my sites rely a lot on many extension features. :(

Most extensions will still work without any problems. That's one of the reasons we went with the extensions system, to make these kind of upgrades a lot smoother. :)

There will be a few that need some tweaks to function optimally on 3.2. Therefore it might be best for you to create a testboard first and see how your extensions react to the upgrade. You can of course also ask the extension authors if their extensions are compatible to 3.2, most will be.

Extensions will fall into three categories when upgrading from 3.1 to 3.2:
  • [1]Those that will work without any change required and, from what I have tested, this will be the majority.
    [2]Some that will work but may not quite display correctly due to the change to using Font Awesome and/or template changes.
    [3]Some others that will not work at all, or will be severely limited, due to changes in core code.
I know that some extension authors have modified their extensions to work with either 3.1 or 3.2 and others have created unique 3.1. and 3.2 versions.

As Jim says the only way to know what the problems are is to test the extensions for yourself.

EDIT: There is another issue which although not directly related to phpBB 3.2 is that there is the possibility (or even probability) that some extensions will not work if a board is upgraded to use PHP7

If the features list of 3.1 can be preserved after update to 3.2 it will be nice, imho, maybe as a link from the 3.2 "about" page.
