We are pleased to announce the release of phpBB 3.2.2 “Bertie’s New Year Resolution”. This version is a maintenance & security release of the 3.2.x branch which fixes one security issue, adds one minor feature addition, as well as fixing various issues reported in previous versions.
As a minor feature addition, phpBB now also supports Memcached caching.
The fixed issues include, among others, problems when updating from phpBB versions 3.0.5 and older, incorrect image size being detected for uploaded files, blurry forum & topic icons in some browsers, and problems with deleting orphaned attachments when a high number of orphaned attachments is present.
We’d also like to note that due to changes in our dependency the minimum expected PHP version is now PHP 5.4.7. PHP versions between 5.4.0 and 5.4.6 will most likely continue to work but can cause unexpected side effects. If you are affected by this you should upgrade to a newer, secure version of PHP.
In addition to that, PHP 7.2 is now supported by phpBB 3.2. Please ensure that your extensions are compatible before upgrading.
The full list of changes is available in the changelog file within the docs folder contained in the release package. You can find the key highlights of this release on the wiki at https://wiki.phpbb.com/Release_Highlights/3.2.2 and a list of all issues fixed on our tracker at https://tracker.phpbb.com/issues/?filter=14391
