This page is supposed to contain information for server owners on what to expect of the upcoming 1.2.0 release on the server-side. For specific changes and upgrade instructions from 1.1.8 see Upgrade.
1.2.0 contains an enhanced Ice interface. This means more useful information and functionality gets exposed. Please see the corresponding documentation.
Starting with 1.2.0 we have a Ice + python implementation of an authenticator that can be used to authenticate users from a phpBB3 database on a murmur 1.2.0 server. You can find phpBB3auth here.
