2.0 Final has been released
« on: June 11, 2011, 07:43:37 PM »
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.

Finally - please do not use this topic for support requests. You will get a much quicker and better response by posting in the relevant support board!

Regards,
Simple Machines Forum Team

To-do lists are for deferral. The more things you write down the later they're done… until you have 100s of lists of things you don't do.

* Miss All Sunday dances around!
Hand in glove
We can go wherever we please
And everything depends upon
How near you stand to me

And if the people stare
Then the people stare
Oh, I really don't know and I really don't care

Maybe I will update my SMF communities to 2.0 in the future but for now I am still a 1.1.14 fan.

This is the day so many of us have waited for, for years. Thank you SMF team. My gratitude knows no bounds. My upgrade from 2.0 RC5 to 2.0 GOLD was an easy, and non stressful one.
