SMF 2.1 Beta 2 Released
« on: July 16, 2015, 05:45:30 PM »
Dear Users,

Simple Machines is proud to announce the release of the 2nd beta of SMF 2.1. This version contains many improvements over Beta 1 and also fixes many bugs that were discovered following its release. Among the notable improvements:

  • There is now an interface in the admin center for configuring default notification/alert preferences.
  • For new installs, MySQL's InnoDB storage engine is used by default if available. This will provide better performance.
  • Support for fulltext search with InnoDB tables on MySQL 5.6.4 or higher.
  • Optional two-factor authentication support for added security.
For full details of what has changed, please see our GitHub archive.

Please remember that the minimum requirements of SMF have been increased to PHP 5.3.8+ and MySQL 5.0.3+ or PostgresSQL 8.0+. Servers running a lower version of either will not be able to run SMF 2.1 and we do not intend to support them. If you have a server running an older version, you can either upgrade your server software or stay at an older version of SMF. SMF 2.1 has also dropped support for IE6 and IE7 but will continue to work with IE9+ (although IE10+ is really recommended) and browsers having similar/fuller standards compliance (any modern version of Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera etc will be fine).

The general installation and upgrading procedure remains the same, however, once you upgrade from an older version to 2.1 you cannot go back, so please take careful consideration before upgrading any live site.. Have a look at Installing and Upgrading SMF in the Online Manual to find out more. You cannot upgrade to 2.1 Beta 2 via the package manager; instead you will need to carry out the "Large Upgrade" process. SMF 2.1 can be obtained from the Download section.

Please note: Because this is a beta release, translations and language strings other than English have not been finalized and may not be complete yet.

Finally, as always, this topic is not for support; discussion and support for 2.1 can be found in the new 2.1 support board.

Awesome. Kudos to everyone involved. ;D

... this topic is not for support...

The only way you won't get support questions is if you lock the thread but then you (and the rest of the team) wouldn't get all the thanks you rightfully deserve. :)

Nice to see things moving.

Are all the 2.1 Beta 1 bugs fixed? I still see 129 issues on GitHub. It was around 126 for quite a long time.

Shouldn't that say "2.1 Beta 2"?
