I got mixed responses to this post a bit ago when I asked about future phpBB2 MOD releases. I realize that based on site statistics there are more than three people that read my blog, even if there are not that many that leave comments. After thinking about it I decided to go ahead and solicit feedback from the much broader audience at phpbb.com.
As a result I currently have two [DEV] topics open. A topic marked [DEV] does not have any code attached; it’s supposed to be a way to get feedback and ideas from the community. So far the response has been … underwhelming. I don’t mean that the responses I got were bad (they were quite good) but that the number of responses has been low. This is probably understandable given that I posted in the phpBB2 MOD Development forum.

I don’t think this is a surprise that the general community is moving towards phpBB3. Many folks that are planning to stay on phpBB2 are probably more interested in seeing existing MODs upgraded to version 3 so they can also upgrade… rather than adding still more “new” features to their phpBB2 boards. We’ll have to see how things go.
