SMF 2.0 Beta 2 Released to Charter Members
« on: January 20, 2008, 01:25:32 PM »
Simple Machines is pleased to announce that the second beta of SMF 2.0 has been released to our Charter Members.
 
This release marks an important step for SMF 2.0. After five months of bug quashing, feature development and a general clean-up we are now much closer to a public beta release. SMF 2.0 is now, in the most part, feature frozen and we are aiming to allow the public to participate in the next beta. We're going to be doing our best to have a much more frequent release cycle now as we move towards release candidate stage, but we have some important template changes prior to in the next beta. As well as the general improvements in Beta 2 we've also reengineered the database security model within SMF which we believe should offer users greater protection against malicous attacks - you can read more about this here.

Listed below is a brief summary of some of the changes made in this release:
  • Improved permissions interface
  • Added support for multiple attachment folders
  • Added winning birthday emails from the SMF contest
  • Added option to prune logs automatically
  • Added means of viewing search/replace operations when installing a mod
  • Added interface to edit and add language files
  • Made custom profile fields searchable on the memberlist and other improvements
  • Added auto suggest control and used it on personal messages
  • Added flood control and CAPTCHA to search
  • Fixed repair boards to work with different database types
  • Added mass topic mover to the maintenance section, and changed the maintenance area templates.
  • Added admin and user logs
  • Added redirection boards
  • Added paid subscription feature - only currently supporting PayPal
  • Added search engine tracking
  • Made numerous improvements to the WYSIWYG editor

Regards,

Wow!

Congratulations!

But I have one question, the Adds Management will be by default? Or it will be only as a mod?
SMF 7 is where it gets good. That has time travel. You can go back and post before the guy who flamed you. :P

Congratulations to the team on getting this out. It's a great step forward.

Also, remember people that this is an announcement topic, not a support topic. Please keep support in the 2.0 beta boards so we can provide better support for 2.0-specific issues.

With the site issues, I was getting worried it might have delayed the release of 2.0 beta 2

All it proves is that in more ways than one, SMF is cookin'

They release SMF2.0 not to the public first for a reason. Imagine all the bug reports and support issues that would be brought up. By the time there is a public release it will be stable. Also a charter membership is not just for the beta testing; maybe you want better support? Also SMF2.0 should not be used in a live production site too.
