Last weekend you may have noticed that we were having some infrastructure issues that caused some of our sites to be unavailable.As a result of those issues, we were not able to retrieve a log of database actions between the 15th and 17th of July so ... [More] data created on *.phpbb.com sites during that time is no longer available. This includes the following during that period: New posts, pms & topics User registrations, email changes and password changes Customisation DB submissions (Extensions, Styles, Language packs) Submitted bug tracker issues Also due to some unusual behaviour everyone’s notifications settings on phpBB.com have been reset to never send out emails for notifications. You can still change your settings here but we’ve reset everyone’s settings to phpBB defaults (to email you for topic & forum subscriptions and PMs) to make sure you don't miss anything but you can of course revert these to your own personal preferences. We would like to reiterate that *.phpbb.com outages do not affect your own installations of phpBB.We are sorry as we understand many of you depend on phpbb.com for support as well as the resources it provides. We've published on our blog more technical details on what actually went wrong here for those of you who are interested.Please discuss this announcement here.Thanks,The phpBB Team [Less]

Greetings all,We are pleased to announce the release of phpBB 3.1.5 "Bertie returning from the City of a Hundred Spires". This version is a maintenance and security release of the 3.1.x branch which fixes one content permission issue and a number of ... [More] bugs, as well as adds new events as entry points for extensions to modify phpBB's behaviour.We'd like to thank 5hocK for letting us know that it was previously possible for the subject of a post of an inaccessible subforum to be listed as the newest post on the forum index. This could happen if the subforum was password protected while its parent forum wasn't, or if users were granted permission to view the subforum in lists, but not to read posts in the subforum. We recommend using appropriate permission settings with usergroups over password protected forums.This release uses the respective HTML attribute to disable autocompletion on all password fields that still allowed it. Passwords required to authenticate to external services like email or XMPP servers are no longer set as default values in ACP forms - thanks to Foritfy Open Source Review for proposing this improvement.Please note: You may run into a conflict warning when using the automatic update package. We recommend you resolve the conflict by picking "Do not merge - use new file". If you have made custom changes to the file "includes/acp/acp_prune.php" or would like further information, please read the corresponding sticky topic in our support forum.The full changelog is available in the changelog file within the docs folder contained in the release package. You can find the key highlights of this release on the wiki at https://wiki.phpbb.com/Release_Highlights/3.1.5 and a list of all issues fixed on our tracker at https://tracker.phpbb.com/issues/?filter=13098The packages can be downloaded from our downloads page.The development team thanks everyone who contributed code to this release: brunoais, Callum Macrae, Matt Friedman, javiexin, rxu, cyberalien, CHItA, Richard McGirr, alf007, Alexander Köplinger, Wolfsblvt, dragosvr92If you have any questions or comments, we'll be happy to address them in the discussion topic.- The phpBB Team [Less]
