In order to help focus development with the next generation of technologies and the best way to help evolve forum software, the SMF team would like to announce that we will be ending all support for our SMF 1.0 series software as of December 31, 2012. SMF 1.0 was released to the world in December 2004 and has been supported for more than eight years.
Anyone still using a 1.0 release should investigate migrating to SMF 1.1
or SMF 2.0
, which will continue to receive support for the forseeable future. We highly recommend a migration to our 2.0 series as updates for the 1.1 series is limited to security updates only.
These days, the SMF 1.0.x line is very outdated, even though it still receives security patches. Hardly any sites still use it, and we rarely if ever receive support requests for it. Since it is almost completely irrelevant to SMF users these days, we have decided to recognize that it has reached the end of its working life, and put our effort towards other things that are more useful to our users.
Please note:We will continue to support the SMF 1.1.x and SMF 2.0.x lines for as long as there is a significant need for them in the community.
