    Any hacks you would make at RC would disappear in the final version as you would be overwriting the php files and the templates, so you would have to re-apply them.

    The same happens with vB2.

      Not necessarily, you could use a program like Beyond Compare or Araxis Merge to compare the modified files with the new ones and go from there .

        Yes I have used Beyond Compare, but think about it you are still re-applying hacks to the new files before uploading.

        So whatever way you look at it you are still re-applying the hacks.

          No, but you could not do that while going from one stable version of vB2 to another either. The whole reason versions are updated is because they changed the code, so you need to upload new files.

          You can always re-apply the hacks, but since it is beta, there may be a bug that causes the code to change greatly, making the hack not work with the new version.

              Thats a very good point actually. Where's the sense in learning vB2 when vB3 is well under way...
