When it's ready.  :D

Firstly, 2.0 RC3'll be published a weeks after for charter members. Finally, 2.0 RC3'll be published two weeks after for normal members.

Well, it'll go to Charter users first. If it's anything like RC2... I seem to recall it was with the Charter members about a month before it went fully public.
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. It seems you have chosen which, and now I must do the same.

Actually, a lot of bugs have been fixed in the last couple of days.

I personally don't like some of the aesthetic changes like polls, like the change on numbers in Profile > Show Posts, but nothing that I can't just mod out in my own stuff.

Oh, and http://www.smf-friends.org/index.php?topic=9.msg23159#msg23159

None, it's feature froze. Just bugfixes and patches.

There are some minor changes I've noticed so far on this site...

1) Avatars are now linked to profiles.
2) Poll Voting display redone.
3) Background color of [ code ] tags changed.
4) "Posts" column on the memberlist has a new bar.
5) The editor on the "reply" page is now in the middle instead of to the left (this may have been a bug, though).


But, yes, it was MAINLY for security and bug fixes.

7) There are two new buttons on Conversations on PM's to reply all and delete conversation.
8) They changed the layout of the Topic Summary on Reply.
9) The layout for the recent messages and member messages has been changed.
10) Finally they add the spanish image for new replies:

It's not a new feature in RC3, it's just that they always forgot to upload them to the simplemachines.org site... (Same for the French icon.)

They probably will work, but I haven't had a chance to compare templates from RC2 with those from RC3 yet, so I can't say for sure. It also depends on how much you've changed.

6) The buttons on the Quick Replys has been moved to the left.

That depends on which language you're using. For those of us using English and other LTR (left-to-right) languages, they have moved to the right. However, for those using Arabic and other RTL (right-to-left) languages, they will be left-aligned now.

I personally liked them better when they were centered :P

You'll have to update your title headers.

You may not have to. I don't think the boardindex and other templates have changed that much since RC2.

Thank you.  I can now sleep at night....  Still, I am going to cross my fingers with that one...   O:)

Egads...  After the 1000 versions changes of the past I put all my site changes into a big giant mod.  Hopefully, this pays off without having to suffer from major

Yes that was forgot in the last language update to the site.  I got them this time.  It does take some time to upload the languages is the main reason I forgot them.   Our language editor has 76 languages in it currently :P I think you can imagine that it does take me some time to upload them all..  I will someday get around to building a script to make use of the language download features in 2.0 to help speed up this process.
