It's still counting down hours. This should be event.offset.totalDays.

Few extension authors are waiting for the release to update their extensions of styles.
I think it's better to wait some time :)

For days, I been wondering what the countdown was for too! :P

I concur with Froddelaar, I have formed a habit long ago of never upgrading to the newest anything, right away. This habit has served me well. It's just good practice to wait for others to discover bugs, if any. And like he said in this case, it would give devs time to catch up with extensions. Unless you have the time and the will to go forward first, then let the power be with you!

In the meantime, I think it's best for all of us to prepare (as I am).. get phpbb3.2 set up on test domain, work there at your own pace until everything currently working on your >3.1.10 is good to go on the new 3.2 in test. Then, simply migrate it over to your live domain after certainty.

Let's face it, most of us probably have 100's of extensions. So very valid point Froddelaar!

True, especially the simple css edit ones and such. Many devs have already begun, if not completed their patching.

Many/most need no "patching", which was the point. They will work in 3.2 just as they did in 3.1 with no changes needed.
