I'm still not using it live. Have asked a few people to look at it (in a separate part of my website) and haven't heard anything.

Still playing with the admin functions... very much impressed with the logging and other new features.

It's beta software, you could run into trouble. You're welcome to open up a thread right here to get some help to get it running (but do a search first and see if there was anyone else who had simmilar problems).

why I will stick to RC2 or later

Well, I think with RC1 there will be a huge community (probably including me) to retest the whole thing. So I expect quite a few more bugs to uncover. And personally I prefer a release process where STABLE is an (except for Version ID) unchanged version of the last RC.
So for this, I would expect to see (at least) two RC Versions.
(i'd rather wait a little longer and get a perfect result :D ).

OK, fair enough. Just FYI, I do think that's exactly the way in which the phpBB group plans to handle things; if an RC proves to be good to go, the first gold release will be an unaltered version of that RC (except for the branding, of course). I do admit that given the fact that RC1 will be the first version to see some serious live action, chances are we will see at least one more RC.

I just installed Beta2 as a seperate forum on my site and told my users to poke around. Once RC1 is released and the ability to upgrade from phpBB2, I will upgrade my live forum so people can use it. So far, I really like it!

I really like what i've seen so far, I didn't like previous versions of phpBB but this version is very slick and it has impressed me to be honest.

There was only one problem with the unzip and install, and as soon as I changed the DB_user password on my account to match the one I tried using on the first install attempt, everything went great.
There is definately a WoW! factor on the changes to the ACP and the features for the Admins and Mods. I love the Report, Warning and Note features.
Can't wait for RC1 and getting this thing running live.
Awesome job, team. You did yourselves proud.

I loved it. But I have one small gripe :wink: though. Previously the whole board used to stay comfortably in a nice rectangle. But now it has been changed. why ?

The following snapshot explains it.

It looks better? :P

subSilver 2 is not the official style for phpBB3 anyways, the other one will be hidden until the final phpBB3 release. :)
