vBulletin 3.6 Beta 1 Released!

From vBulletin.com:

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.
For more information you can view this thread:
http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=187654

As for releasing modifications for 3.6 at vbulletin.org, Brad is currently working on allowing this. You should be able to release 3.6 modifications once Brad is finished.

Enjoy.

Since the architecture from 3.5 to 3.6 hasnt changed much, does that mean that most of the hacks currently for 3.5 should still work with no problem

That's what I expect having not been given any specific warnings like we were with the archive change in 3.5.4.

But that's what I'm off to test right now on a test board. Not going live yet myself.

Unstable for Jelsoft is usually more stable than a "gold" copy of a Microsoft product
