We are shooting to get it out as soon as possible (and are very close) so hopefully!

I'm glad to hear that smf is active and that php7 support is coming. I was getting worried since there was no news for a long time. Anyway, happy holidays! :)

Being PM, is not an easy role, it takes alot out of you emotionally and mentally and can effect everything in your life, maybe the role need to be looked at again and split into a 2 person role splitting the duties up slightly.  Ok I do not know the reason why Suki had to stand down, but just my 2 cents.

It's nice to know that things are moving forward. I was getting worried.
My Mods

Sugested that too. Hey ho. I'd link you to the original discussion but it's not visible to most people (seekrit team board stuff that is more dangerous than wikileaks).


Don't PM me for support! Use the appropriate support board!

I had my doubts and haven't been around for a few years, but it's good to see SMF moving forward. Good luck to those considered for new staff positions.  ;)

-- 2.0.13 will be released shortly.
-- We are working on adding php7 and some other capability enhancements into the 2.0.x release line

Kindred,

I just upgraded to PHP7 and manually patched up 2.0.12 to work under PHP7. Would be happy to share my updates with you / the team if it would be helpful.

thank you... we are already working on the php7 patch and, I believe, have it well underway.

However, if you like, you can make suggestions in the bug reports or feature requests board


I would suggest that what you did, however, may come back to bite you, since you may have to undo it all in order to upgrade to 2.0.13 and eventually to the official php7 patch in 2.0.14
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support forums.  Thank you.

Indeed; it was a known "risk" when I started patching it up. However, I needed a working forum now and patching didn't take much effort. Granted, I don't necessarily exercise every single feature in my daily use of the software, so there might be lingering "gotchas" not accounted for. Will be keeping an eye on my logs for awhile. Will be interesting to see how our two efforts line up or differ.  :)

Cheers.

Upgrade to 2.0.13 went successfully; none of the files in it conflicted with the ones I modified. Did uncover one other spot I needed to update for PHP7. Other than that, things look good so far. Looking forward to 2.0.14.

I have to say its a more positive statement than, "it will be ready when its ready". Reapeating that for years wins no fans at all.
Even guess-timates like 75% ready.... 80% ready, 95%, 98% (without time) is better than nothing.

We don't even know that. We may encounter some new bugs while testing a new release that makes us decrease that number.

Or add features this late in the day that require more testing.
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.

Would you mind sharing it with me?

No one knows for sure when 2.0.14 will be released (I'm assuming they had some set backs again) and my new projects can't sit for much longer.
