Do you think its possibly usage mistakes or something needed to be developped more?

Adding support for UTF-8 had a large impact on SMF. Before, SMF already supported more than 10 character sets as well as HTML entities. With the introduction of UTF-8 it needed (improved) multibyte support for all functions using and manipulating text strings.

Before the release of 1.1 RC3, most UTF-8-related bugs had already been solved thanks to the work of several internationalization testers, but a few bugs showed after release of 1.1 RC3. Among them, there was the issue with mails being sent in the improper format, login problems for usernames and passwords containing multibyte characters, and the spell checker not working properly for multibyte characters. Those issues have all been fixed now and hopefully in the final release, UTF-8 will work flawlessly.

Heh to be honest the Devs are looking forward to DE as well.  A lot of potential with that.


--- Quote ---Still think it would be a good idea to allow the public to view the bug tracker even though they couldn't add to it.. Just so people can be linked to it to let them know the devs know about the issue.

It's in the works, just one of many things on the list.

Ooh, I've discovered some typo's in comments, does that mean that I should report them?
--- End quote ---
Sure.


--- Quote ---And speaking of the bug tracker, can normal members post bugs to it, or only staff/charter members? I discovered the bug tracker a few hours ago, but could not figure out how to post to it :P

--- End quote ---
Team members only, though we do have plans to make it viewable to all in the future.


Oh and you can all kiss my rear over my spelling :P

Um... I was just viewing the bug tracker yesterday, and I could view it (it was already logged in under my name, and had the permissions of 'reporter')... But today I get a login form, and it doesn't work anymore :P

Ben_S:
You should have kept quiet then ;).

I am sure this is why I am choosing SMF and translating for it. We have a responsible team here. I am proud of using SMF.
