Summer is gone. Autumn is here and still no RC2

Not yet, but we're getting there. A few bugs that could occur on rare occasions were brought to our attention, so we wanted to take care of those first.

We're really getting there, though. Expect a release real soon. :)

the bugtracker is nearly empty as well!

There's still 126 bugs left to resolve in the bug tracker. Not all of those will be fixed in RC2, since some of them aren't real bugs per se, but I wouldn't equal 126 open bugs to empty, if I were you, still. The universe might implode. ;D

One thing Aaron forgot to mention - almost all of the Curve-related bugs are "private", meaning only team members and beta testers can see them.

Yeah they're too good to just give away. We save the best ones for ourselves.

I just went through all the outstanding bugs for 2.0.

There are 51 bugs tagged for 2.0 RC2, 12 bugs of which involve the new theme, Curve. And there are 65 more bugs tagged for 2.0 RC3, which will happen before 2.0 Final is released. Of course there may be an RC4, etc.

We're still finding more bugs. There have been about 115 bugs open for the last few weeks, but most of the new ones are fairly minor things.

There's no guarantee, it mostly depends on what bugs get discovered in full-on real use between RC2 and RC3, and what happens after RC3 - if all is well, it can move to 2.0 final.
Perhaps it would have been better if I'd simply never bothered. Y'all clearly would be less unhappy that way.

:(  Come on guys ! :D

If you can write patches to the bugs, I'm sure the dev team will consider them :)

Usually here new version of SMF is delayed because of bugs that has been found. I know devs have own life and spend some amount of time for SMF but... If you have problems with fixing them maybe a good idea would be inviting more new people for developing, more for beta testing ? This may could help release new version on time and not 1 per one year (not including security updates like RC1-1, 1-2).

Why don't you help then? You can start by browsing the Bugtracker and posting fixes, or going through the Bug reports board and checking which are genuine.

Honestly speaking, the same can be applied for me, I need to work harder...actually i need to work....

Nolt

I don't know much about PHP programming... if I would I could help. Make a contest for new Dev or somthing SMF Team have only 4 of them... (for ex. phpbb have 8 of them it's 2 times more head to think and work yes? :))
