    A small bug has been found in the 3.6.0 Beta 1 installation script.

    The Members' Area package has now been updated, but if you have already downloaded 3.6 Beta and you have problems with announcements you should download the updated version and reinstall.

    This does not affect boards upgraded from previous versions of vBulletin
    It applies only to NEW INSTALLATIONS of 3.6 Beta 1

    Templates Changed Since vBulletin 3.5.4

    These are the template changes since 3.5.4 ONLY

    If you are not running 3.5.4 yet, there are significantly more changed templates than are listed here. Use "Find Updated Templates" to find the templates that have changed and incorporate those changes. You may even wish to start with a default style!

    Note:
    You need to only look through this post for templates you have customized. You do not need to take any action to ensure that your uncustomized templates are the latest versions.

    If you find a template you have customized in this list, you will likely want to include the changes made here. However, this is not always required. Under each change listed here, you will see "requires revert?" This refers to whether the changes are mandatory (yes). If the changes are mandatory, things will break if you do not incorporate the changes made. It is strongly recommended that you revert and recustomize any templates that say they require a revert. If requires revert is listed as "no", your board should continue functioning without the changes, but any bug fixes/improvements will not be applied unless you revert the template!

    Additionally, you may wish to use the "Find Updated Templates" feature in the control panel to find templates that have been changed since your last edit to them.

    started a topic vBulletin 3.6 Beta 1 Released

    vBulletin 3.6 Beta 1 Released

    Rather than post a bunch of new features today, we decided to post this...

    vBulletin 3.6 Beta 1

    It gives me great pleasure to announce the release of vBulletin 3.6 Beta 1. vBulletin 3.6 Beta 1 is available for all licensed customers to download from the Members' Area now.

    vBulletin 3.6 contains a large number of new features, many of which have been included as a direct result of customer feedback. Over the past week we have been revealing some of these new features on a daily basis in this thread, so if you have not already seen it you should head over there to take a look.

    This code has been running well on vBulletin.com for the past week, so we are confident that the code is robust and relatively free of problems, but customers should bear in mind that this is a public beta, not a certified 'stable' release so the following caveats apply:
    • Beta software is unsupported and you install beta versions at your own risk.
    • Some minor bugs remain unresolved at this time, so beta software should not be on production sites.
    • You should always back up your database fully before attempting to install beta software.
    • If you choose to install this version, you should be aware that we plan to release new beta versions in rapid succession as bugs are fixed and holes are plugged. Do not install this beta version if you are not willing or able to keep up-to-date with new releases.
    • The ImpEx import system does not support the 3.6 code yet, and will not support it until the release of 3.6.0 (stable).
    Installation / Upgrade
    If you are accustomed to the install and upgrade procedure used by vBulletin 3.5 then the 3.6 install and upgrade process will be familiar to you.
    Please refer to an earlier release announcement for full instructions.

    Hacking / Plugins
    While there have not been extensive changes to the underlying architecture of vBulletin 3.6 from 3.5, it is possible that certain hooks may have changed. Therefore you should check with the author of whatever plugins and products to attach to your vBulletin installation to inquire about their compatibility with vBulletin 3.6. Plugin authors should be assured that we do not anticipate major code changes between the Beta 1 code and the final 3.6.0 code, so plugins written for or adapted to 3.6 compatibility should still work with the final code.

    Javascript / AJAX Problems
    Many of the Javascript files for vBulletin 3.6 have changed. However, if templates are reverted or adapted correctly there should be no issue with cached old Javascript files, as we have implemented a system that should force clients to reload Javascript files after an upgrade. If you discover what you believe to be a Javascript problem, please ensure that you are not using cached files by doing a ctrl+F5 hard refresh before reporting it as a bug.

    Reporting Bugs
    Please use the vBulletin 3.6 Bug Tracker to report any bugs you find in vBulletin 3.6.
