cool, now does anyone know where I can find DETAILED instructions on how to do an upgrade? The "full instructions" listed above in that link were just not instructional at all.

No, you can update then revert the templates (not required) or incorporate the changes.

Pretty much upload files, run the upgrade script, and make template edits.

you will notice after upgrade. in your admin cp warns you of templates out of date..simply click the link and revert the templates.

it does over write the old templates. so if u have any customized, they will be lost. just a warning. compare temps before u revert. imo

sure wish there was a way that it would keep are customized add ons

my custom skins are what drives me crazy, im ready to pull them all off the site. getting tired of fixing them with every release. lmao

just last night i updated to 3.7.0, go figure

thanks for heads up on last tues of month now, at least i can time my fixes some now.

Say its good to have frequent updates for security flaws but to have to upgrade every 2 months is a nightmare since upgrading is not always th easiest thing.

I would have rather seen patches for security holes and upgrades less frequent.

My board is only a week or so old and still being tweaked before "launch". I'm running a skin as well. Just upgraded and only one template needed to "revert" and it wasn't one that I have never edited before. Smooth upgrade. Was worried, but now I'm extremely relieved...

If the release doesn't address anything you need fixed, then skip it and do the next one.

Please be aware that the initial 3.7.1 package have been updated:

http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showp...26&postcount=5
We have found an error in the 3.7.1 package that may cause PHP warnings when posting a message. As of this post, we have updated the package to include this fix.

The updated file is includes/functions_databuild.php. See this bug report for a manual fix:
http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/proje...?issueid=25623
http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showp...15&postcount=6
Unfortunately, two more issues have come to light that have required a package update.

Includes/adminfunctions.php was modified to fix an issue with creating users via the administrators control panel.
Includes/class_vurl.php was modified to fix an issue when using reCAPTCHA as a human verification method.

We recommend you download the package again to retrieve the latest version of these files if you are affected by these issues. Apologies for any inconvenience this has caused.
