Vanilla 3.0 RC2 (Release Candidate) & Call for Testers
Last month we put out our initial release candidate for Vanilla 3.0. We received an amazing amount of feedback from the community about bugs and pain points with that so thanks everyone for taking the time to test out the release.
We think we've got things pretty close to ready, but with such a large amount of fixes and changes we've decided to do a second release candidate. This one will be much shorter thought. I'm planning to look for any last minute bugs next week, and put out the final release next Friday.
- Vanilla 3.0 requires PHP 7.1 which is a change from earlier versions. We strongly recommend upgrading to PHP 7.3 as soon as possible. Many hosting plans allow a seamless transition via their control panel.
- Follow the normal upgrade process, including running /utility/update.
- Follow additional specific upgrade instructions if upgrading from an earlier version.
- Test your plugin & theme compatibility in a safe place. This is not a final release yet so it's not recommended to run this on a production forum.
