To give a positive feedback:
My biggest board just made the jump from 3.1 to 3.2
After adapting my style and some extensions, it was a smooth upgrade. Happy to have it finally running with PHP 7 😊
Thanks to everyone who had contributed to this release, again a big step forward!

Can you please check with another German forum on phpBB 3.2?
http://www.lpi-clan.de/index.php
(took me a while to find one ;) )
That one shows fine for me

I use a Chrome extension called Create link that creates a BBCode link for the page. The original link shows LPI-Clan - Foren-Übersicht and after I tell Chrome to translate it shows LPI-Clan - Forum Index. For reference, I'm based on Canada, so likely am using google.ca rather than google.com. It shouldn't make a difference, but sometimes it does.

You're right that syntax highlighting by default has been removed from the core phpBB package in 3.2, as the Features page you linked to states. The reason it was removed was because we are now using a revamped BBCode parser. However, it's still easy to implement again using this extension. :)
Okay, but will new versions of phpbb officially support syntax highlighting?
And if so, will phpbb use it highlight.js definitely or another method is envisaged?
What is the relationship with revamped BBCode parser?

Sorry to insist, but I am dealing with a forum on which one regularly uses the syntax highlighting for code examples (And I am convinced that I am not the only one).

The extension currently used is CodeBox Plus, which had the advantage of using GesHi (syntax highlighting + keyword link to online help for the type of code we used)
Unfortunately the development of CodeBox Plus is dropped and this extension is most likely incompatible with phpBB 3.2

I'm looking for something that will allow me to continue using syntax highlighting without having to ask myself the question "will it be compatible with the next version of phpBB"

As on the features page it is written that phpBB support syntax highlighting, I had hoped for a more official response or details about that.

If there is such a thing added to the core it won't be present until at least 3.3. An extension will be the way to go. This could be a good candidate for the next official extension and then it won't need to actually ever be in the core.

Indeed, it would be the most reasonable solution although an integrated and easy to update solution would be much more profitable for everyone.

I looked at how highlight.js was done, and frankly, it did not seem easy to update the languages definition ...
Not to mention that for the language used on the forum which I deal with, there is missing a not insignificant amount of keywords and definitions ...

Damage that my reduced capacities do not allow me to create my own extension or update that of o0johntam0o (viewtopic.php?f=501&t=2248306)
Hopefully, some changes will be enough to make it work in 3.2. ^^

I try to update with automatic updates from 3.1.10 to 3.2 and after uploading the zip file and unzip via ssh I see the http 500 error message.
Works fine when I put the /vendor folder from previous automatic update (3.1.9 -> 3.1.10).

I try few times :cry:

The instructions say to upload the "Install" and "Vendor" files on the new Patch.

I opened the new patch, but how do you upload them?

That is not what I meant. I'm asking for help for updating to 3.2 in the proper topic and have been told the instructions automated in the version feed of 3.1.10 aren't reliable.

Please bear with me, I am sorry and am not trying to promote anything here.

I sincerely ask you, what is the best method for upgrading to 3.2?
