Seems like it. Im still waiting to upgrade to 3.0 because Im not re-installing the hacks three times.

What happened to xelation.com did you ever sell it? If not Im interested.

vBT will be a 2.2.6 -> 3.0 move, too much done to keep upgrading, at least for now.

Yep, maybe they should really test etc. so bugs are to a minimal and no more upgrades are needed. I'm staying on 2.2.6 until we upgrade to 3.0.

Updates are released for a reason, most of which is because the bugs they found were not originally found during their tests and members brought them up (for the most part). Some members are very into upgrading, although for minor changes, it is not a big issue to upgrade. vBulletin released these bug fixes and updates in order to fix what found in error.

Not really a big deal to upgrade for most, but if you have hacks installed, it could be a pain (unless like here, you only have 4-5 installed, most all of which are admin side with the exception of the installation and Portal hacks).

Yes I know they are, but it was a little quick between 2.2.7 and 2.2.8 this time. What I liked about vB was version weren't released ALL the time so we wouldn't have to upgrade week after week. But it doesn't matter.

Yep, lots of mods on my forum so 3.0 will be our next upgrade. :)

I'm used to Beyond Compare so I may give it a shot. Probably lots of files have been modded though, takes alot of time by the look of it.

better read this...

In conclusion...
Go and upgrade! This release includes important fixes for everyone, and we would recommend that you upgrade as soon as possible. vBulletin 3 is on its way, so keep your eyes peeled on this forum. However, you will only be able to upgrade to vB 3.0 from the latest version of vB 2.2.x so we would recommend that you upgrade to this version for the time being.

Thats kind of silly IMO, but who am I to argue.

its due to changes in the db schema, you can run 2.2.6 as long as you want, but when you upgrade to 3.0 you will need to run upgrade files on 2.x.x if its not the lastest verson. the upgrade script to 3.0 will only work with the lastest DB schema.

Tony G

Well I'll upgrade to the latest 2.2.x when 3.0 comes out considering I'd loose all my mods anyway and then go to 3.0 from that. Why didn't I think of that earlier..

Nothing is perfect, not humans, certainly not a script, especially one that is always having new features added to it

Ahh he meant the new version.

Yes it's best if they don't get it right just incase things pop up when it's supposed to be right. That means the final release has ridden of anything little that may have been found in a beta.
