The difference is that updating phpbb itself is not complex (starting with extension in 3.1) as people don't change core code, most people probably modify the style to customize it. So you cannot just upload a new version like phpbb/extension and be done with it, you have to go and modify everything by hand, which is a nightmare.Lumpy Burgertushie wrote:sorry to dash your hopes. there most likelyl will be changes between each of the upcoming 3.2 versions. most version updates will include new "events" in the style's html code. that will require you to update your styles as well as the rest.
I really don't understand why events are considered as maintenance those days, and not as features. How many of the new events are widely used that it is worth it to break style compatibility with every 3.2.x release?
