Also, if the fixes have been done in a new branch and a lot of code has changed, it may be difficult to backport the fix. Often, in cases like that, it's better to leave the bug in place. Sometimes the actual fix for the bug requires a re-write of code, which may have side-effects in other parts of SMF, especially older code.Traditionally, updates in a stable release have only been made for security issues or major bugs.

Quote from: Arantor on July 08, 2012, 04:02:37 PMAs has always been the case with SMF, once a stable release (1.0.0, 1.1.0, 2.0.0) is reached, no new features are added until the next one and only security patches get released, which is what 2.0.1 and 2.0.2 were. The next release with new features will be 2.1 and is still under development.
Quote from: Arantor on July 21, 2012, 09:12:24 PMThe bulk of the 2.0.2 patch is security. There are non-security bug fixes, but nothing that is more than one-line changes, and in low single digits.
