Thank you so much for the update, a pity not coming new features, like:
something like; install / update extensions, styles and languages ​​via ACP

an event management and the camaleon style, but I was immensely happy that now the author can see his posts / topics in the approval area

Most of the significant changes are in the back-end, which will pave for the way for future improvements.

Invisible reCaptcha is nice though. There's also a nice new ajax search in 'find a member' that returns a list of usernames matching your partial search:

That has been clear for a long time already, but still, the transition from 2.0 to 3.0 was massive as was the transition from 3.0 to 3.1 (in my case to 3.2).
With that in mind, 3.3 doesn't have a real wow factor. (and yes I know, no wow factor was promised nor insinuated but one can't help hoping for something really spectacular).
Don't take this as negative criticism, it's a natural emotion for those who haven't seriously looked under the hood yet (and I'm one of them). I'm realistic enough to appreciate the not-so-apparent improvements.
Brexit and Trump are old news and currently I have no inspiration for a new signature.
Ow, wait: 3.3 has been released.

Great news :)
While as mentioned it is not a "Wow" update, it is solid one refreshing the core of the software. Now to hoping that 4.0 with all the cool new features arrive sooner rather than later* :ugeek: It seems like a mighty rewrite of the code, converting all the control panels, getting a modern template, adding ACP installation/updating of extensions, user mentions, improving the drafts feature, adding storage options and probably more stuff I'm missing.

I don't think that is a new 3.3 feature, it exists in phpBB 3.2.8. I cannot recall when it got introduced.

Yes but has been slightly improved in 3.3, see: https://github.com/phpbb/phpbb/pull/5684

The fixes for the configuration of Sphinx search are made to the sphinx.conf configuration file generated by the ACP and the sample file shipped in the docs folder. While in operation, this file actually resides outside of phpBB. So, for those who have already configured Sphinx as the search backend, you will need to apply the configuration changes manually to your existing sphinx.conf file (by checking against the new configuration file supplied by phpBB 3.3). The changes will then take effect upon the next full indexation of your main search index (whenever you have indexer.exe scheduled to run, usually daily).

EDIT: For example, I can see that on this board the configuration has not been updated, as HTML markup is still part of the search index eg a search for "br" brings up 2.5 million results due to <br> tags being treated as a keyword in every post. ;)

The update went flawlessly from 3.2.8. Of course some extensions are not compatible so I have to wait till they are released! Good job team!

By popular demand, a new permission has been implemented, enabled by default. :P

The update also seems to have gone great for me as part of a local test on my computer.

Many extensions have not survived, which as someone else said is normal, now let's just wait for the compatible version to come.

Other than that, thanks for the great work guys!

Nice work people,

Likes... tha wee new logo there and tha wee new logo in the acp,
Love... nae more having t change tha folder permissions when installing.

Tha only thing I think shoods be changed at some point in tha future is on tha opening page after install, tha wee box tae "enable VigLink" - if ya do tick it - it's enabled, if ya do nae tick it - it's still enabled.

It's been like it fur a while so it's nae big deal, just a bit confusing for those new to tha phpBB forum softwares, so maybe tha wee box could be removed and a wee line of text like "tae disable VigLink go tae extensions" could be added.
