phpbb 3.1 alpha released

#1
Phpbb 3.1's alpha has been released, surprisingly ahead of MyBB 1.8's beta.

https://blog.phpbb.com/2013/10/15/phpbb-...w-release/

The most exciting improvement that I see is the actual mod system that has been introduced. This alone will make phpbb much better as a viable option for forum software, although I still think it needs a lot of work.

Thoughts so far?

They may be beating MyBB and may have a new shinny interface, but their code is still poop...

MyBB has never exactly been ahead in terms of its frontend interface. Its default theme looks like vbulliten with a slightly different shade of blue and a different header. Tongue

I'd take the flexibility of MyBB over a shiny default theme any day though. PhpBB has always been difficult to customize, and I don't see that changing overnight for them. However, that said, their new mod system is a HUGE step forward, hands down.

I don't use phpBB so I'm not that excited, and I don't intend to switch soon. However it i good to see it advancing.
And I find a number of similarities from the old phpBB2 default theme and MyBB's... Tongue

I actually prefer the default phpBB2 theme over the MyBB default. I feel like the only one who actually liked subsilver. Tongue

Yea. I mean they are by no means exact, they definitely share similarities though. Tongue

Yup, they have almost exactly the same page layout, and similar colors. Big Grin






I took the images out of the quote. They're big and who wants to look at them twice, anyways? Tongue -sl
