Ok , I'm new to the whole forum thing and I'm not going to even pretend to understad any of this... but we all have to start somewhere right anyway without reading 23 pages of replys and stuff that brings me to my question... keeping in mind I'm new to all this , sorry if this sounds dumb but... wtf is all this RC stuff ? I mean is it a forum package like SMF 1.0.8 ? Is it something I need to download and install with the 1.0.8 software that I already have running... I just wana know if this is something I need to have installed with the 1.0.8 software or if this is something better that can / will replace the 1.0.8 software in its entirety... hope all this makes sense... either way regardless of the answer if I do use this I can say for sure that I will most likely wait for the final release of this program as I have read some people are having issue with upgrading / using this "beta" software for lack of a better word. I use the word beta loosely... beta to me is anything used before the programs actual / final released version.

RC is Release Candidate... we are coming close to a new, stable, final SMF version, it was working pretty well as RC2 and RC3 is supposed to have some few more features and be even more stabel...

Ignore this stuff, we are not talking about how to install, etc. in here. Just grab your copy of SMF RC3 installation and if you want to get Tiny Portal too and ... there you go.

Hello guys. Do you have any plans to have an easy way to restore the database? phpBB has "restore database" inside and works like clockwork. This may be the _only_ thing I like about phpBB, SMF is super at the rest!!

Do you plan to have any 1.0.8 -> 1.1 sharp converter or updater?

So then this is a program that will replace the 1.0.8 software in its entirety right. If so great as for downloading  using it sure I'd love to but as a fw others have said I'd prefer to wait for the final version to be roled out.

I'll break it up from here.

RC stands for Release Candidate which means that it is a candidate for release unless bugs are found. There have been some which have been found since it's released and fixed. And yes, its a forum package just like 1.0.8.

1.1 is a step up from 1.0.x as it includes new features, security and other nik-naks to sink your teeth into, like CAPTCHA, Report PM's to Admins, Inlined Editing and more. (See http://docs.simplemachines.org/index.php?board=40.0), so 1.1 replaces your 1.0 installation by overwriting the files.

1.1 will replace 1.0 for download when it goes Final, but it will still be supported. So even after 1.1 goes final, we will still help you out if you are still on 1.0.

Even I refer to the RC's as beta's from time to time. Though they are Release Candidates. There isnt really a lot of difference only Beta's can have new features, but RC's are mostly just bugfixes.

Didnt expect all that but ty thats verrry helpful... also someone else had a good question and now that I understand this more thx to you I'm going to quote the question with the same question in mind...

I'm going to assume the answer is yes or "its in the works" because from what I do and both dont understand I do know for a fact that a converter of sorts would make the integration of 1.1 easier on alot of people if the 1.0.x couldbe upgraded to 1.1 with ease.

1.0.x can already be upgraded to 1.1 with ease. You just download the upgrade package for 1.1 RC3 extract it to your computer, upload over 1.0.x and run upgrade.php in your browser.

When I upgraded to 1.1 for the time more than a year ago, I was suprised by how easy it was. (I went from 1.0.3 to 1.1 Beta 1, since I was a Charter Member at the time)

Just remember to make a backup before you upgrade.

Well this was literally a fresh install of the software lastnight.. its just me and a test name I made as members... ive been out of the game for a while so lastnight was my first run back on this stuff.. so as for backing up dont even need to worry about it but on future upgrades after i get a good member base then yes that will def be a must hehe.. thx for all ur input thusfar ;-)

Edit : one thing I gotta say though that gets me is the FTP I use... it seems to work fine on everything else but for somereason it seems to hang on uploads of anything from here lol... like right now its hanging on aim.gif before that it was some php file... I eventually get it to work after a few tries but its weird.

Just a question...

When the new version goes gold, will it be possible to upgrade from 1.1 RC3 to the final release version?

Thanks.

You can upgrade from any other SMF version so there would be no reason not to be able to :)

Yes, of course you will be able to upgrade. :)

Since the forum is so huge I can maybe read it somewhere but the thing I wonder is if there is any list of decided features and one list with wishes?

One thing I wish is a somewhat different registration procedure.

A new member must write some reasons at the registration procedure why I should approve them, after that I want they to confirm the membership and after that I'll approve them and until then they can't see the member list. This is for get rid of spammers.

When will be released the final version(the date i mean)?

I have each time problems upgrading i i'll wait the final version.

As traditionally said, "it will be ready when it is ready". No set release dates and it will be never set until it is actually released.

With that said, how long would the creators feasibly wait for bug reports to come in before accepting that it's time to release the final version?

Sorry, I know people must be sick of this question, but the launch of my site is literally hanging on this release, because I don't want to install RC3 or a prior version only to lose mods and such when upgrading.

I get a note saying this file is corrupted when trying to upload it. Speaking of which why didn't it download automatically?
