Upgrade your phpBB to 3.0.4

Just one month after phpBB 3.0.3 release, it is phpBB 3.0.4 now.
I upgrade my forum to 3.0.4. It is not that difficult. I like to use automatic update package to do the upgrade, because that I have many changes on the original release. Automatic update package can merge the changes I made with the upgrade files.
