phpBB 3 Hits Beta

phpBB 3 hit beta a couple of days ago. Through the phpBB 3.0.0 (Beta 1) Demo at, I have had the opportunity to take a look around. Wow. That is going to take some getting used to.

It definitely looks great, but man, am I overwhelmed. The work and time it will take to get all of my communities upgraded (including all hacks and data created by hacks) is going to be immense. I just spent 10 minutes writing up a document highlighting the key steps involved. Still, it will be really sweet once it is all done.
