Big phpBB upgrade (3.2)

Postby LePaul » January 11th, 2017, 2:54 pm

There's a substantial upgrade available to us, which the Featuressection tells in great detail.

Like all new upgrades, I am going to sit on this for a couple weeks and make sure the upgrade kinks have been worked out. (I hate being first and discovering tons of bugs!)

Among the changes:

"The new BBCode parser adds support for all the emojis you've been using on mobile devices, the new font awesome integration adds retina quality icons to prosilver, and the quoting feature has been enhanced. Together with Symfony 2.8, an improved integration of the twig template engine, and full support for both PHP 7.0 & 7.1, we have increased extensibility of phpBB 3.2 while reducing development time.

Board admins will apprecite the new installer, which enables easier updating using the browser or a command-line interface, as well as the newly added reCAPTCHA 2.0 to thwart would-be spammers at the gate."

Any additional spam blocking is welcome. I like the improvements for the mobile experience and fonts.

Just wanted to let you guys know!
