phpBB 3.3.12 Release

Post by Marc »

Greetings everyone,

We are pleased to announce the release of phpBB 3.3.12 "Bertie: A phpBB Saga". This version is a maintenance release of the 3.3.x branch which introduces a number of improvements aimed at enhancing the user experience and overall stability of the software, resolves some issues noticed in previous releases, and introduces further security hardening.

In order to reduce the potential of accidentally submitting duplicate posts, we have added extra checks to the frontend and backend that should reduce this possibility in the future. The database queries that are used when searching for unanswered posts and topics have been improved to be faster and more efficient. Some further improvements include enhanced error messages with MySQL when using PHP 8.1 and newer as well as better compatibility with parsing of posts with PHP 8.3.

Reparsing of posts, which is performed when upgrading from previous minor versions of phpBB, will now treat URLs in posts based on the original post content and should no longer cause magic URLs to appear if they were not previously displayed. Additionally, issues with updating phpBB to the latest version should no longer be an issue when having removed the YouTube profile field.

As a means to further strengthen the security of phpBB, we have added additional safeguards against requesting a resend of the activation email too often and have resolved an issue that could cause cron jobs to not run as expected.

The full list of changes is available in the changelog file within the docs folder contained in the release package. You can find the key highlights of this release below and a list of all issues fixed on our tracker at https://tracker.phpbb.com/issues/?filter=16390

The packages can be downloaded from our downloads page.

The development team thanks everyone who contributed code to this release: rxu, Christian Schnegelberger, GanstaZ, Prosk8er, LukeWCS

If you have any questions or comments, we'll be happy to address them in the discussion topic.
