vBulletin 3.8.0 Beta 1 Released

vBulletin 3.8.0 Beta 1

We're pleased to announce the first public beta of vBulletin 3.8.0, after running the earlier alpha releases here on vBulletin.com, we're satisifed that any serious issues have been resolved. Any customer with an active vBulletin license can download the beta.

There is an extensive blog post by Darren that showcases some of the new features and improvements that have been made to vBulletin 3.8.0.

Significance of a Beta Release
This is beta software. If you are not fully at home with backing-up and restoring your forum, dealing with bugs and regular upgrades, do not install this beta version.


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.
Please do not use this thread for support questions.

Do group (social group) discussion posts count towards the individuals post count?

It's okay, and seems to be working so far. Although again, just a plain old search box would be nice (for PMs).

In testvb, the upgrade from vB3.7.3PL1, vBBlog2.0.0Beta3 went smoothly, no problems.
Had to re-add access to vB iGallery after required revert of the navbar template.
Lost (they disappeared) all MGC Evo Chatbox chat in both the General and Team channel, but, the mod itself still works just fine.
Had to re-install Change Thread Prefix InlineV2.0.1; it was causing forum lookups to bomb.
vBImage Resizer's HighSlide doesn't seem to be working correctly/as it did before.
