Nice work. Question: is it possible for a user to completely switch off the likes and mentions notifications?* I know some people like them, but others just find them a nuisance.

*Meaning so they never show up on the forum interface at all.
The alerts for both Likes and Mentions can be disabled, but the user will still see the mentions/likes on individual posts.

Antechinus

Cool. That'll work. :)

Very interesting, thanks for letting us know!

I have a question about the karma since I didn't followed it up.
Since it becomes a mod, will there be a replacement system and will the karma mod be maintained by SMF itself?

Likes is intended to be the replacement system, and the mod will be released by SMF which will be exactly as the old system but I don't know about the plans of maintaining it (probably nothing beyond the occasional bug fix if any)

Ah, that's cool :).
Another annoying question: any idea's known about converting karma to likes, in that case? (for example positive karma becomes the current amount of positive likes and negative karma becomes the current amount of dislikes)

Cheers :).

Isn't possible because karma is only recorded per user, not per post. (It is recorded per post for *short* periods of time, like the last hour by default)

Xarkurai

Cool, okay thanks.
I was planning on modifying the karma system but since it's going to disappear I'm not sure to still do it.

Conversion of create_function's lambda style functions to true anonymous closures
SMF has a lot of create_function calls (over 200 in fact) and create_function is a particularly memory hungry function which cannot be optimised by bytecode caches and properly garbage collected. With the recent bump in PHP 5.3, we've decided to take this opportunity and convert all of them to true closures which will have much better support as well as proper support for garbage collection the moment it's out of scope.

  This is a good decision and I am glad to see the team decided to go though with that minimal requirement and to do away with those create_functions. Imo it was rather obvious to what was causing those issues as the official PHP documentation clearly states the repercussion of using those in multiple and compounding at that.

All of the code related to PHP 5.5 compatibility for 2.0.7 was drawn from 2.1, most of which was written in 2012 by people who've long since left the team. If it was that obvious, would it not have been noticed sooner?

Really looking forward to 2.1 and reading about it.

Yeah, it looks like it's going to be really good. We're finally getting some long wanted improvements.

Hello! When wait 2.0.9?

Arantor

When it is ready. The team are reviewing it and testing it and then it will be released once the team are satisfied with it.
