The development team thanks everyone who contributed code to this release
While I'm used to never being mentioned because only git pull requests are counted (the "contributed code" phrase is simply wrong as I can easily do that) and grasping the problem and then precisely pointing at the culprit was my work I don't understand why only IMAGETYPE_WEBP was implemented and not MAGETYPE_JPEG2000 and IMAGETYPE_ICO, too, while being at it. "Nobody uses those" cannot be the answer, as formats like IMAGETYPE_XBM are supported for years already. I also want to point out that the WEBP support could have been implemented 2+ years ago already.

It is correct IMHO, who spends his/her time and effort giving the community his own contribution(s) using the ways offered by the developpers it is mentioned, I recall spending many hours/days trying to understand the workflow, I studied it and I have never give up, now I use the facilities the right way, I asked for help and I was helped out so I do not understand what's your problem. If you can easily do that, please go ahead.

You pointed to the culprit giving an hint, solution was not even perfect nor exhaustive.

Because the ticket has been made just for WEBP. Feel free to create a ticket for those, it will be evaluated.
Not to mention that JPEG 2000 was built to supersede the original JPEG format by having better compression and more features. WebP, AVIF and JPEG XL are all designed to supersede JPEG 2000. https://caniuse.com/?search=jp2 - a format tha not even all browsers support.

Nope, first because IMAGETYPE_WEBP it is available as of PHP 7.1.0 (and phpBB 3.3.0 has been released on 06-jan-2020) - https://github.com/phpbb/phpbb/releases ... ease-3.3.0 - then because nobody opened a ticket and/or pushed the code for that.

You can find the key highlights of this release on the wiki at https://wiki.phpbb.com/Release_Highlights/3.3.4 and a list of all issues fixed on our tracker at https://tracker.phpbb.com/issues/?filter=15690
The tracker link needs some TLC as "The requested filter doesn't exist or is private. Try logging in."

Also so far so good on another localhost environment, CentOS 7.9 server running PHP 8.0.5.

Thanks to all who contributed to this release, developers, bug reporters (and investigators) and those who've done testing of the release candidates.

Planning to update production boards in the next day or so.

It works just fine after you logged into the tracker, otherwise you will get an error message. Apparently something new as in my recollection I was able to see the list in the past without logging in.
Watz fo lunch?

Just updated from 3.3.3, all went smoothly.

If I am not mistaken, there is no security-related change this time. :cry:

Nothing particular, just annoyed of spam registrations. But I am still learning on how to protect my site from them
