Thanks for all the work it took for 3.3.6.

I have altered core files, so I would use the Advanced Update method. On the Advanced Update Tab of the Downloads Page, I see "To download this package, you must first select your current phpbb version." When I select my version (3.3.5) on the Advanced Update page, it immediately redirects to the Update tab and there is no download for the Advanced Update. What am I missing?

Thanks for the info. There seems to be a small issue with the page. You can work around it by entering the version you are updating from at the end of this link:
https://www.phpbb.com/downloads/3.3/adv ... sion=3.3.5

For example replace 3.3.5 with 3.3.4 if you're updating from that.

edit: Should be fixed already.

Hi,
first of all, thank you for your work.
May I ask you why the "Automatic Update" has been "downgraded" to "Advanced Update"? I've been updated my board since ages using this method without any issue... I would like to continue to use it.

Could you kindly confirm that phpBB 3.3.6 does not contain any security bug fix? For many reasons we cannot update our board now so we have to wait some weeks.

Thank you,
Best.

Nobody is stopping you from using it still. :) It is just not the recommended way and led to some problems, when user used it without too much expierence, because they thought this is the easiest way.

Just its name changed, nothing else.

I would point out that the "Advanced" update method is planned to be removed in a future version of phpBB (no idea which)

Thank you for the first answer. OK.

For the 2nd one. Thanks, I'm used to always double check the announcement about security fixes and changed code too.
phpBB managers are also used to add a "Please update" to the announcement title when it is important to update quickly (because of security fixes). Isn't it?

May I humbly request that this update mode not be removed? IMHO, for advanced users it is a very smoothly and time saving way to update the board...

In case of deletion you can use "changed Files" method: https://www.phpbb.com/downloads/3.3/changedfiles

The "changed files" package overwrites any changes to core files that we made. It's very useful but IMHO the "Automatic Update" (now "Advanced Update") is the quickier way to update the board for expert users. Because of that I was asking to reconsider the idea of its removal.

And why modify the phpBB core files when it is enough to make a legacy style?
In which case no more file overwriting problem during updates, "changed Files" is the best method!
