Title: SMF 2.0 RC2 is out to charters!
Post by: Aaron on October 03, 2009, 06:49:23 PM
Hi all,

As most of you will undoubtedly already have seen, SMF 2.0 RC2 has been released to our Charter Members about an hour ago.

It's been a few months since the release of RC1, but loads of bugs have been fixed since. It's not just bugs that delayed the release, though: RC2 boasts our brand-new Curve theme, featuring rewrites of all SMF's templates and of course a slick new look. :D

For those not familiar with our preview releases system: after our Charter Members have had their go at it, and no blocking bugs appear, 2.0 RC2 will, of course, go public. :)

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Charter Members for their continued support for SMF!

Thanks,
Aaron

Yes -- Curve comes as "Default" with RC2, and the 1.1 default theme as "Core"

The team is working hard on getting RC2 out as soon as possible, in the discussion boards a lot of discussion is taking place on bugs, Curve and optimization. So in short, when its ready. I won't expect a huge delay but I don't know when it will be done(And as a matter of fact, no one does).

I fully understand why the standard answer is "when it's ready" but would appreciate an indication of likely timescale for release. I'm currently working on a totally new website and forums (converting from phpBB2) which is due to go live around Jan/Feb next year. If SMF 2 is released I'd like to go with that from the start rather than upgrade later (the Curve theme will work perfectly for me so it means I don't have to mess about with other themes in the interim). How likely is it that SMF2 will be ready for a live site by then?

We can't give you a timescale, it is ready when it's ready.

That said, RC2 should not be too long - though only the devs can make the call as to when that will be - and RC2 is pretty usable already (since we use it here)
