phpBB 3.0.11 released

Greetings community,

We are pleased to announce the release of phpBB “Bertie’s long summer
3.0.11. This version is a maintenance release fixing a number of bugs
and not
adding any new features. We’ve improved compatability with PHP 5.4
further and
added a warning about the minimum PHP version required to upgrade to
phpBB 3.1
to warn users of old PHP installations.

We urge you to update your installation as soon as possible. Our support
team will only support phpBB 3.0.11, updates to phpBB 3.0.11 and
conversions to phpBB 3.0.11. Submissions to our trackers for older
versions will not be accepted, please make sure you update before you
submit a bug report.

If you use a language pack other than the default “English [GB]”, you
should check our downloads section, an update may already be available.
