    vBulletin 3.0.0 Release Candidate 4

    Development progress marches on and bugs discovered since RC3 was released have been fixed. It's worth noting that the average severity of bugs being found now is significantly less than in previous releases, and we are rapidly approaching the point at which we can declare the vBulletin 3 code to be stable and suitable for production use. Therefore, we are currently confident that the next release will be the final 'Gold' version. That's not a guarantee of course, but if the RC4 period sees a similar decrease in the severity and importance of discovered bugs as we have seen recently, Gold is on the cards.

    I expect the vBulletin 3 graphics to be finalized in the next few days, and when they are we may update the RC4 package in the members' area to include the new images, depending on how close we consider the Gold version's release to be.

    The vBulletin 3 manual is shaping up to be a comprehensive document containing all sorts of useful information about installing, running and maintaining a vBulletin 3 board. In conjunction with the inline help available in the Admin CP, vBulletin 3 should be the best documented version we have released to date.

    One new thing has been added for RC4 - after multiple requests we have now included an Admin CP style based on the colors of the front-end style. Funnily enough, you'll find it called vBulletin 3 Frontend.

      Adding Mozilla Firefox Detection to vB3 RC4

      As many of you are aware, today a new version of Mozilla's Firebird browser was released, along with a name change to 'Firefox'.

      In addition to this, the USER AGENT string for this browser no longer includes the word 'Firebird' and instead states 'Firefox.

      While this in itself does not break any vBulletin functionality, you may wish to add support for Firefox detection to your RC4 version.

      To do this, open includes/functions.php in a text editor and make the following changes/additions:

      Change this:
      PHP Code:
              $is = array(
                  
      'opera' => 0,
                  
      'ie' => 0,
                  
      'mozilla' => 0,
                  
      'firebird' => 0,
                  
      'camino' => 0,
                  
      'konqueror' => 0,
                  
      'safari' => 0,
                  
      'webtv' => 0,
                  
      'netscape' => 0,
                  
      'mac' => 0
              
      ); 
      To This:
      PHP Code:
              $is = array(
                  
      'opera' => 0,
                  
      'ie' => 0,
                  
      'mozilla' => 0,
                  
      'firebird' => 0,
                  
      'firefox' => 0,
                  
      'camino' => 0,
                  
      'konqueror' => 0,
                  
      'safari' => 0,
                  
      'webtv' => 0,
                  
      'netscape' => 0,
                  
      'mac' => 0
              
      ); 
      And change this:
      PHP Code:
                  if (strpos($useragent'firebird') !== false OR strpos($useragent'phoenix') !== false)
                  {
                      
      preg_match('#(phoenix|firebird)( browser)?/([0-9\.]+)#'$useragent$regs);
                      
      $is['firebird'] = $regs[3];
                  } 
      To this:
      PHP Code:
                  if (strpos($useragent'firefox') !== false OR strpos($useragent'firebird') !== false OR strpos($useragent'phoenix') !== false)
                  {
                      
      preg_match('#(phoenix|firebird|firefox)( browser)?/([0-9\.]+)#'$useragent$regs);
                      
      $is['firebird'] = $regs[3];
                      
                      if (
      $regs[1] == 'firefox')
                      {
                          
      $is['firefox'] = $regs[3];
                      }
                  }
