Simple Machines Forum Team is proud to announce the release of the long awaited SMF 2.0 Final version to the public.
This release marks the transition of SMF 2.0 into the current stable release of SMF
, as well as the rebirth of the SMF project as open source software, as it was meant from the start.
As of now, SMF is licensed under the BSD License
Also, SMF 1.1.14 was released, addressing a vulnerability found in SMF 1.1.13 allowing display name spoofing as well as fixing a MySQL 5.5 compatibility issue. We strongly recommend that all users of 1.1.x line to upgrade as soon as possible.
For users of SMF 2.0 RC5, this release consists primarily of several bug fixes - most notably it fixes the login protection and possibility of real name spoofing. These issues have serious security implications, and we urge users to upgrade to it as soon as possible. For users of SMF 1.1, the changes between 1.1 and 2.0 are too numerous to list here - but we're sure you will be pleased with the new features SMF 2.0 has to offer.
The following are the more important changes and fixes since SMF 2.0 RC5:
- Fixes to login protection system
- Real name spoofing prevention
- MySQL 5.5 compatibility fixes
- Several PostgreSQL related fixes
- Fixes to integration hooks
- Several user interface fixes
- Fixes related to member profile updates
- Fixes to upgrade scripts
For a complete list of changes, please find the changelog as usual, on the downloads
page, and the list of known issues in SMF 2.0
in the Online Manual
With this release we'd like to take the opportunity to recognize the effort and dedication of all the people who have volunteered their time to help the SMF project. We would like to thank everyone, past and present, who has contributed to the development of SMF over the past years.
