phpBB 3.3.1/phpBB 3.2.10 - WTF

Post by supanet »

Can someone explain to me the logic of having two different versions of the same software running at the same time. :?

I guess i am missing something but isn't it a bit confusing, I am currently on phpBB 3.2.9 and get told off some people i need to update to 3.3.1 wile others say no! you need to update to 3.2.10 as 3.1.1 has bugs. :mrgreen:

I know other software runs test versions along side each other but these are both release versions so what is the reason for having two running at the same time?

The main difference between phpBB 3.2.10 and phpBB 3.3.1 is that 3.3.1 will run on PHP 7.4 whereas 3.2.10 will not.

As for bugs - I think you will find the same bugs in both versions.

Hi
Regarding bugs, phpBB 3.3.1 is less riddled with them than version 3.3.0
Sorry for my English ... I do my best!

phpBB version: 3.3.3
php version: 8.0.2

It's like Microsoft having Windows 10 and Windows 8.

Maybe 3.2.10 is for more legacy servers.

3.2 is still being supported with fixes and stuff but soon it will stop as it will reach it's eol so that is why you have 2 versions at the same time. Treat this time as a transition period.
