Just curious, now that phpBB3 has finally been released... are there any plans in Ozzu's future to switch over?

Eventually it may, is there something about PhpBB3 that you really like?

Right now I don't there's that many better things about it that you would actually NEED to upgrade for. There are a few new neat features, and it looks nicer, but as far as security etc, I don't think there's anything it has that phpbb2 doesn't. I may be wrong, haven't looked at it a lot. But I think the webmaster has put so much work into customizing this forum to work with this site, upgrading might force him to have to redo a lot of it...and if it ain't broke, don't upgrade :)

Nothing in particular, I was just curious.

The backend is entirely worth the upgrade. The front end includes multiple extra's that OZZU could use but doesn't. If you've never seen it here's the feature comparison.

Yeah, I was playing around with an install of the last RC a few days ago. The things they added for administration/moderation are insane.

I think it would be well worth it to upgrade to 3. But its a big job!

Does ozzu have a warning system? Or a temp ban system?

Actually Benat it is relevant to the post as they are features incorporated into phpbb3 but not phpbb2 per se. phpbb3 is more automated and no OZZU does not have it like that.

I just took a look at the feature list, and many things that I have as additional mods are now features in phpbb3. One that is really nice to see is that persistant topic tracking vs session tracking is now incorporated in PHPBB3.

I know the rules thanks!

I was going to say Ozzu has alot of mods, but if phpbb3 has them already as a feature, it would stop bugs from occurring (if they ever did? I don't know). I like the look of phpbb3 I think it looks cleaner then 2.

"Stable" not "Final", Bogey.

But yes, it's ok to use it without wondering if somthing super-major is going to change in the next patch now.

Done Upgrade, Look at How unique Ozzu is to most over PHPBB2 forums.
