IP.Board 3.3 and IP.Content 2.3 Coming Soon!

We are well into beta testing for IP.Board 3.3 and IP.Content 2.3 and so far it's going very well. Practically no bugs are being reported and often times our staff have literally 0 open general bugs in our bug tracker. That is quite an accomplishment and something of which we are very proud!

If you are an IPS Client and are comfortable beta testing we would love for you to take some time in the next day or two and visit the pre-release testing forum. There you can download the latest beta releases to try out yourself. Please report bugs to the bug tracker so we can fix any issues before we go for the final, supported release.


One of our primary goals for these releases, in addition to feature changes and enhancements of course, was to fix as many issues as we possibly could. While there will always be bugs and such in any software package, we are very proud that we have been able to address every general operational bug report that has come in. That's not something many can say. Of course once this release is used by thousands of people we will need maintenance releases but going out of the gate with basically no known issues is a great way to start!

Thank you to everyone who has assisted in beta testing so far. The final, supported releases will be here before you know it thanks to your help.

[*]SEO improvements [*]Social networking integration improvements [*]Major performance enhancements [*]Improved banning, moderation, and warning functionality [*]Reputation system enhancements [*]Application and hook enhancements [*]Archive system [*]Nearly 0 open general bugs, and around 60 flagged for future version bugs resolved

We were not going for "let's add 800 new features to 3.3". We were going for "let's make this the stablest release we can, focus on cleaning up areas of the software that may be confusing, neglected, or otherwise require improvement, and overall polish the product".

Totally agree with that position.
What i don't understand is people saying that finally IPB is usable, when i see NOTHING that important added to IPB functionality, besides the clone permissions when adding new forum and the warning/ban member improved system.
That's why i am kind of confused.
And please don't getme wrong. For me IPB is simply the best forum software available in the market.

Just curious, are skins and mods going to be broken from the upgrade of 3.2.3 -> 3.3?


Most skins will continue to function, but will require updates to make use of the updated functionality (e.g. the new warn panel, and most of the SEO improvements).

I suspect most addon applications and hooks will continue to function with few issues, but there's no way to state this definitively.

Will these betas be easily upgradeable to to later betas and 3.3 final ?

One thing I'd like to see:

1) Import/Export IPBoard settings, so if I do a fresh install of IPB, I can quickly import existing settings, without the need to go through customising the options.
