This page contains progress and ideas for a FUDforum 3.0.5 release. Exact release date is unknown (probably July/ August 2013).
You are welcome to expand this page if you like to work on a new feature or influence the development direction.
Users that want to help with testing and development can check out the latest code from the SVN repository.
The new system requirements to run FUDforum will be:
- PHP 5.3 or higher (PHP 5.2 will no longer be supported).
- MySQL 5.0.2 or higher (support for other databases will remain unchanged).
If you use the ldap plugin, you will have to reconfigure it after upgrading to this release (new 'ldap.ini' included).
- The ldap plugin now support SSL connections (LDAPS) (by Argure).
- The irc bot now supports NickServ and IRCS connections (by Argure).

- (proposed) Remove support for Internet Explorer 6 (IE6) web browsers.
- (proposed) Remove the Affero MOD (I'm not aware of anyone still using it).
