Beta 1 is due in November, its mostly for some Mapi updates for mobile 1.11. There are some minor bug fixes, and an update to attachments to stop the fixed deletion code removing old corrupted attachments.

Nope, just less people to work on it, tho Kevin has now returned after his summer away. The next release should be 5.2.0.

Well, you're certainly insider.

Is there any plans about bringing back hooks in vB5, or vB6, or hooks for now are abandoned completely?

And what do you propose upgrade wise, first to upgrade PHP, or first to upgrade vB (with site closed to public) and then PHP, when upgrading to 4.2.4?

Alan,
I am not super skilled but it did take me many months to upgrade. I have good internet but when I ran the script it would get to about 80% and just sit there.
I had the idea of putting all the files in and then got one of the guys at the hosting to run the script as they have fast internet and maybe connected direct to server. They ran it and it worked. I do not know why or what was wrong, just relaying my experience.

Hooks (for vB5) are part of 5.2.0

Hence what I mentioned in post 16.

Yes, every upgrade can go wrong. I usually do all work on the server (not working with FTP, but with SSH), and after all is ready, I start upgrade script with browser. But, you never knows what can go wrong. So I also make backup files before I start work on upgrade and also test everything on my test installation, so I can have idea what to expect on my live site.

You always need to prepare yourself and test things in advance.

Well, this certainly looks as a good news, it would make vB5 more appealing to users (well, site admins).

One interesting observation.

On my server I use Plesk. And it has option to have concurrently installed many PHP versions (created by Plesk team) and that versions can be changed on the fly for each website.

Interesting thing is, I changed PHP version for my test site (which is still vB4.1.12) to PHP 5.5 and everything works just fine.

I thought that 4.1.12 wouldn't work with newer PHP versions. Or is it that only some errors are showed? Or some mods don't work (didn't tested extensively everything)?

Anyway, it looks like everything works. Of course, I still plan to upgrade, but it looks like interesting thing to see vB4.1.12 work on PHP5.5
