Not that it was running slow, but it seems to be loading pages before I even click them clickable emotes aren't working. Edit: The pull downs at the top of the page aren't working either.

I think the upgrade killed some javascripts...nothing major...we are looking into it...and yeah, it does seem to be running faster

I wish 3SI could get vbb 3.8.

I understand their reasoning given the number of forums they maintain but.....

the more that are maintained, the more important it should be - if even purely from a security point of view.

There are known and expected issues regarding plugins & template/javacript functionality which are essentially still contained in 3.0.3-based customise parts of the forum, these will of course need to be manually checked and updated - but we will get there soon and eveything should be fully functional with some added features to boot.

Speed increases are due to better vB caching, page coding, upgraded database engine class, reduced database table size amongst other things. If you do spot something unusual, just give us a quick shout.

What's the hold-up? Is 3si's vB maintenance outsourced? jNive is absolutely correct on the point of security.

3.8 is a new release their not willing to jump to a release that's this new yet. Its been floating on alot of sites in beta form but the real release is only a few months old and they (understandably) want it to be in the wild a bit longer before they jump in.

Well that isn't too bad assuming they patch up any security flaws manually etc (aka backporting etc). 3.8 is pretty nice though also with some additional features - Social Groups FTW!! :-)

Re: Forum upgrade 04/07/2009

I'm trying to get my hands on a copy of 3.8 so I can make a list of new features that the owners would care about.

Haven't they seen what happened to phpbb.com though when they waited 3 days to patch security issues that occurred in the phplist software? Once volubilities are discovered they need to be patched almost immediately on a big site with a lot of users, as it's likely somebody will try and crack the old software.

They install the security patches for 3.7. 3.8 is not a security release its a features release.
