anything related to the development of SMF is a good thing.

Going to smcore.org and after a rapid check, it seems you are planing to use some Symfony component if not the entiere Sf2 framework, isn't it? At which point is Symfony going to be involved?

I think it's a good choice. I know PHPBB4 will also be built around Symfony 2, as well as Drupal 8 with some components.

So good luck, I'm myself working on a Sf2 website with a SMF2 forum ^^  :laugh:

There are no plans to use Symfony. We were discussing other frameworks to use to get a start.

We're only using their YAML parsing component - PHP doesn't have YAML built in like it does with JSON, but it's a very good configuration format.

We also have a few components from Zend Framework in there, which *will* be replaced over time. It's just that we can get going faster if we don't have to write a whole database layer right off the bat.

We never put any dates out there for stuff that is done on volunteer time. If I were to hope, I'd hope that we could see a beta by next year. But that is just me "hoping". :) Inbetween now and then though, we should see SMF 2.1 for sure.

Hehe read that properly it contradicts itself! Without the extra day it would be 514 days ago! You cannot subtract days to equal a future date. Im sure that a few noted scientists have also worked the date aspect out for authenticity but irrespective of the consequences in any way shape or form or nothing as it likely will be. :)

Incorrect. The Mayan calendar is extremely precise, unlike the Gregorian calendar, and therefore does not need leap days.

The whole thing's a load of crock anyways, but leap days aren't a reason why.

Thanks for the answer. I guess I just checked the topic on yml and quickly get into some false conclusion :lol
Also, I saw Twig templates and some code organisation that reminded me of Symfony :)

Thinking about SMF 3.0 makes me very excited!  I don't think I'll ever switch to 2.0, it's just not really much different in terms of functionality, only in the code.  But if 3.0 has new features, that would be awesome!  I'd like to see a Xenforo-esque approach to certain things while still maintaining what makes SMF great :)

It sounds very exciting but also a lot of work... good luck!

I like the theme you are using on smCore... Dziner Studio puts out some very classy themes.

Cheers!
