As Graze said, I get the sense that some of the fine-grained polishing of the UI on the new phpbb version is still a work in progress. For example, I looked far and wide for the RSS feed functionality we used to have... and it appears to be "stubbed" in the current build, but not yet functional.
Fair enough; the backend re-architecting of this version is substantial, and enormously positive in terms of fixing all sorts of creaky, non-ideal architectural elements of earlier phpbb builds. I'm glad they focussed on shoring up the core engine, and are now able to build on a solid backend as they re-enable these sorts of front-side capabilities.
As there's much evolution going on, I really do encourage folks curious to take a look over at the phpbb site
, and raise a flag if a new feature (or extension) for the forum is ready for us to test out and deploy. Nobody on the team does forum stuff full-time, and I doubt any of us visit to check in on cool new things more than every month or three... so we can easily miss nice new features sitting there waiting to be deployed. A poke that something's ready for us to look at helps ensure that doesn't happen, and we're glad to enable such things fast-track if they are in demand here.

: played hookie from "real work" for a bit, and installed some newly-published forum extensions - most seem quite nice, so far. Note there's also some really nice release candidate forum styles
now available. If any catch the eye, let us know and we can install as test options, no problem.
