We are pleased to announce the availability of the phpBB3 Beta5 package. This fifth beta release marks the nearing end of the beta testing phase. The next release we anticipate will be Release Candidate 1.
With this beta a full update path is provided from Beta4 to Beta5, as well as the convertor for converting phpBB 2.0.x installations to phpBB3 Beta5. We decided to give away the proposed convertor package to let it properly test and fix any remaining issues encountered before using this as the primary method of converting, the same way we did with the update package release before. This means that you should test converting your forums and report any bugs or issues you notice, but not depend on a successful conversion - you should still not use this beta in a live environment and you should always be able to completely remove your installation to perform a fresh installation. But conversions will allow you to test this beta on a wider scale as well as doing a test run for those wanting to convert their installations once the release candidate is available.
A short explanation of how to do a conversion as well as an update is included within the provided INSTALL.html file, please be sure to read it.
If you decide to do a new installation, please be sure to remove any remaining files, especially those within the cache directory as well as not reusing your database.
