Is there any information on changes made between the two versions?
I have alot of mods and skins installed so want to update manually.
Any help please?
Thanks in advance :)
For skins the diff report is in the announcement saying 2.3.4 has been released.
There are no manual instructions, but you could use a difference tool (I use one called FreeDiff) to go through and find all the edits, or, you could look at the changed file lists and reapply edits that affect those files.

thanks for the advice, ill try them ;)
By the way, note to staff, are the changed PHP file reports compliant with SVN or CVS, I mean would they work using the updater?
We use SVN to generate the change reports, though I think Matt goes in and edits some of the non-essential stuff.
considering how much money you charge, it'd be nice to have a list of file changes.
Changed Files Since IP.Board 2.3.3:
It's really not that bad. Using a file comparison program like WinMerge allows me to spent at most 15 seconds per changed file (usually less) using keyboard shortcuts. There really aren't too many huge changes between point releases, and they're all picked up by the comparison anyway.
I just let the IPB people upgrade my board for 2.3.3 to 2.3.4... it took about 20 minutes I believe.
:rolleyes: Hi 你们在讨论什么东西，是不是跟PHP有關的？
Professor P, CVS and I believe SVN actually provide file changes between the two versions, and I would be suprised if SVN didnt, a couple of releases ago, there were text documents that a program (guessing SVN) wrote, told you what needed to be added or removed.
Yes, those were generated from SVN (though Matt manually edited them to remove some things, like changes to the XML files).
How come you guys haven't had them for the past few point releases? That would make it easier for people whose forums have 473977893 mods (read: a lot); and also people who know what they are doing. :)
Just chiming in that I really appreciated the diff file included with the 2.3.0 -> 2.3.1 upgrade, it made my job of manually upgrading much easier. It's a pity that you don't do them any more.
