The frustrating thing is, 2.0 betas and RCs have been out for so long now, that a lot of mod developers have abandoned work on their 1.x versions and focus exclusively on the 2.0 versions. Often there are lingering bugs in the 1.x editions that now simply won't get any attention. While it's good that the mod developers are on-top of development for the upcoming version of SMF, the abandoning of support for 1.x by them doesn't march in-step with the official line about the betas and RCs of SMF2 to not be used for production sites, and to only be used for testing. While that's what's said on the surface, there then seems to be an unspoken assumption that everyone just run the latest 2.0 RC/beta anyhow. Given the complaints about bugs though I'm just not comfortable with that, so I'm "stuck" on 1.1.9 and the buggy, unsupported mods.
It's getting to be that the only way you can play by the rules is to not use mods... one of SMF's biggest strengths (and one of the reasons I went with SMF over the other options). It's like, either live with the buggy mods or live with the buggy SMF2.
I don't bring this up to pressure the SMF development team at all... I understand things take time. I've done software development myself. It's just a statement of fact... and more of a frustration with the mod developers than anything. This transitional period is a rough and difficult one to ride through for those of us running sites.
