In most cases, yes. Because it is only a new minor version.

To be 100 percent sure, just test it in a parallel test installation, before you update your productive board.

Or ask the author who's responsibility it is.

What is a parallel test installation?

Does that have something to do with Xampp, or what?

On the same server as your productive board in a subdomain/-directory a copy of your board to test new styles, extensions, updates etc.

Okay, that's what I thought and I may do that with a domain I'm not using right now. I just mentioned this on another topic.


About subdomains, I guess that would work as well. But I think I've read that subdomains don't play well in terms of keeping your origin IP hidden under CloudFlare, which I'm pretty paranoid about. :lol: I do right now however share a gaming stats banner and I full well know that the gaming server has most likely logged my origin IP. So long as they aren't hacked I should be good to go, right? :lol: :geek:

At last i have found the answer to when phpBB will have the next release - when I am away on holiday.

Almost every release since 3.1 has occurred when I am away - and no I will not tell anyone when I am next on holiday!!!

If everyone adopted that attitude nobody would ever update.

There is a reason why RC versions are released - to see what the problems are and minimise them.

Please post a report in the bug tracker (as a blocker) informing us all about your next holiday, we will wait for you to come back before doing other insane actions. :lol:

hey, cut them a little slack. I am sure that they waited and waited trying to figure out how to get the new update released while you were home but just couldn't work it in between your holidays

Well then, guess it's time you retire and go on a holiday every other month.
