SMF 2.0 Release Candidate 3 is out!
« on: March 08, 2010, 06:03:11 PM »
Hello all,

We are pleased to announce the immediate release of SMF 2.0 RC3 to the public. This version marks the third release candidate for 2.0, including about 350 new entries in the change log, consisting mostly of bug fixes, interface tweaks and fine-tuning of the new Curve theme.

We strongly recommend all users of earlier development releases to upgrade to this release, for it contains several security fixes.

While we are confident that there are no major problems with this release, we want to remind you that it is still not to be considered stable software. We do not recommend its use in live environments and if you are not comfortable with using this release candidate, we advise you to wait until the release of the final version before using the 2.0 line.

Highlights of this release include:
  • Several security-related fixes.
  • Better compatibility with RTL languages.
  • Added curvy headers to loads of tables throughout SMF for the best Curve experience.
  • Fine-tuned conversation view in the personal messages section.
  • Improved read tracking of topics; e.g. topics are now marked as read by pages, to allow easier resuming of reading.
  • Several tweaks to the WYSIWYG editor; now automatically disabled on mobile devices.
  • Post screens (new topic, etc) are center aligned again.
  • Buttons are now aligned much more consistently throughout SMF.
  • Row color alternation to most of the tables in the administrative areas.
  • Redesigned profile statistics centre.
  • Fixed install and upgrade script for PostgreSQL.
  • Updated help section.
  • Revamped SSI examples page.
  • Rephrasing of several error messages.
  • Improvements to the package manager's archive extraction algorithm.
  • Toggling of full size versions of resized images.
  • Altered styling for quotes and code blocks.

Those interested in the detailed changelog may like to download it from our download page.

Finally - please do not use this topic for any  support requests. You will get a much more prompt response by visiting  the relevant support board!

Regards,

Simple Machines

Awesome, great job.

* Arantor actually contemplates testing his mods for this one ;)
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
And the lamp-light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor

Brack1: vbgamer is saying he'll have to update his mods FOR RC3, which is a good thing.

I'm strongly contemplating it too.

Congrats guys. The moments we have all been waiting for.
“There is no god, and that’s the simple truth. If every trace of any single religion were wiped out and nothing were passed on, it would never be created exactly that way again. There might be some other nonsense in its place, but not that exact nonsense. If all of science were wiped out, it would still be true and someone would find a way to figure it all out again."

By the way, any update equivalent coming for US on the 1.1.xx side of the fence ?

Uh... no, since 1.1.x is in maintenance release while 2.0 is in active development?
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
And the lamp-light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor

So from your knowledge 1.1.11 is where the buck stops for that line ?

Ever since, 1.1.0, all 1.1 releases have been for security and bug fixes only. No new features have been added since. If there is a major security vulnerability or bug that pops up, there could end up being a 1.1.12. But, it won't add functionality.

That's the reason most mods that were released for 1.1-1.1.5 still work, and even more work with just a few edits, for 1.1.6-1.1.11.

Great Job!

Thanks Developers!

Thanks for all your work! Time to update mods heh.

It shouldn't be so hard knowing the changes between 2.0 RC2 and RC3
