I have a fairly big Fud install on v 2.7.7

I am about to move machines and will upgrade in the process. I am sure there are busier forums out there, but I run into scale limits all the time, so I assume most are smaller.

What version should I upgrade to? Is the 3.0 series stable? Or should I pick an older version and wait for others to test it a bit?

You need to upgrade to version 3.0.0. Users have reported that it is faster (and more scalable) than prior releases. Best of luck and let us know if you run into problems.

Documentation to review before you start:
- Upgrading
- Performance tuning

Thanks. I keep meaning to feed some of my bug fixes back, but because the admin tools stop working once the forum gets over a certain size I am usually so many versions behind that I never know if they would be useful.
