phpBB 3.0.6 RC1

In order to make sure everything is OK with the final release, phpBB team decided to release their first RC1 of phpBB 3.0.6.

The following is a list of major new features implemented in phpBB 3.0.6:
  • Backported 3.2 captcha plugins:
    • Classic and GD CAPTCHA
    • reCaptcha (based on API from by Mike Crawford and Ben Maurer)
    • 3D Wave (by Robert "Xore" Hetzler)
  • ATOM Feeds
  • bare-bones Quick Reply editor in viewtopic
  • Users can report PMs to moderators which are then visible in a new MCP module
  • Ability to copy permissions from one forum to several other forums.
  • Send statistical information (anonymously) about PHP and phpBB configuration to help improve phpBB.
I just hoped that the upgrade process will be painless when the final version is released not worthy
