New Backup Service Delayed
We had announced a new Backup Service however this service will be not be available at release time. We want to be sure the service works reliably and would rather delay a bit than give you something that may not work properly. Obviously something as important as backups on your community is something we want to feel confident about offering.
How to Upgrade

How to Upgrade
IP.Board 3.2.x and Applications: End of Life Announcement
So that we can focus all of our development, support, and service efforts on the newest version 3.4, we are announcing the end of support (sometimes called end of life or EOL) for the following IPS software versions (and earlier versions):
- IP.Board 3.2.x
- IP.Blog 2.5.x
- IP.Gallery 4.x
- IP.Downloads 2.4.x
- IP.Content 2.2.x
- IP.Chat 1.3.x
- IP.Nexus 1.4.x
Technical support, installations, and services will end for these products on June 1, 2013. On that date all technical or service requests will be advised to simply upgrade to the most recent versions of the products. We will not force upgrades but will also not be able to diagnose issues or answer questions relating to the older software. Also, on that date, IPS will no longer address any new issues or bugs reported in the older software versions.
You are of course free to continue using these older versions if you wish but IPS will no longer provide assistance after the EOL date.
In the event an issue is discovered impacting the security of these older versions of the software, IPS will provide a patch posted in our announcements forum. We will continue to provide security updates for several months after the EOL date based on severity of the issue.
