Title: SMF 2.0 Release Candidate 3 is out!
Post by: Aaron on March 08, 2010, 06:03:11 PM
Hello all,

We are pleased to announce the immediate release of SMF 2.0 RC3 to the public. This version marks the third release candidate for 2.0, including about 350 new entries in the change log, consisting mostly of bug fixes, interface tweaks and fine-tuning of the new Curve theme.

We strongly recommend all users of earlier development releases to upgrade to this release, for it contains several security fixes.

While we are confident that there are no major problems with this release, we want to remind you that it is still not to be considered stable software. We do not recommend its use in live environments and if you are not comfortable with using this release candidate, we advise you to wait until the release of the final version before using the 2.0 line.

Highlights of this release include:

Those interested in the detailed changelog may like to download it from our download page.

Finally - please do not use this topic for any  support requests. You will get a much more prompt response by visiting  the relevant support board!

Regards,

Simple Machines

Brack1: vbgamer is saying he'll have to update his mods FOR RC3, which is a good thing.

I'm strongly contemplating it too.

By the way, any update equivalent coming for US on the 1.1.xx side of the fence ?
Title: Re: SMF 2.0 Release Candidate 3 is out!
Post by: Arantor on March 08, 2010, 06:55:38 PM
Uh... no, since 1.1.x is in maintenance release while 2.0 is in active development?

Uh... no, since 1.1.x is in maintenance release while 2.0 is in active development?

So from your knowledge 1.1.11 is where the buck stops for that line ?

Ever since, 1.1.0, all 1.1 releases have been for security and bug fixes only. No new features have been added since. If there is a major security vulnerability or bug that pops up, there could end up being a 1.1.12. But, it won't add functionality.

That's the reason most mods that were released for 1.1-1.1.5 still work, and even more work with just a few edits, for 1.1.6-1.1.11.

Yeah man, i know that much ,,, was just wondering if any security issues were found in 1.1.11 to prompt a .12 ... Remember SMF released 1.1.11 and 2.0 Rc2 Practically The same time...

Depends on the mod, really. If they don't work right now, they may in a few days when the mod authors get a chance to update them. *Most* RC2 mods *should* work without a lot of work.
Title: Re: SMF 2.0 Release Candidate 3 is out!
Post by: Arantor on March 08, 2010, 07:46:50 PM
Mostly, yes. Of the ones I've updated so far only one actually needed anything more than minor changes to it - the rest just needed adding 2.0 RC3 to the list of supported versions.

Dismal: I know... good isn't it? (expecting maybe one person to get the Doctor Who reference there)

/me has an idea for a side project mod to do that will be a first for 2.0 RC3 (and in fact for RC2 as well) but more on that when I have time away from SimpleDesk.


Amacythe, long time no talk. How are you doing? I'm... here and I even got mods unarchived, how crazy is that?

so when i'm installing a mod as long as there all 'Test successful' and there's no 'Test failed' it'll work?

I've been away on vacation.  The fight is over?  Has any resolution been announced?  I think it's only logical to announce the outcome of the talks for everyone to know since everything was put into the open and people's sites have been impacted by the turmoil.  Anyone care to enlighten me or point me in the direction for the read?

I guess congratulations are in order but for me personally upgrading to RC3 is out of the question since every time I decide to upgrade from one RC to another something gets screwed up. In other words, I am waiting for the full version to come out.

unless there's some currently undiscovered monster hiding in my SMF closet, RC3 feels very polished and finished over RC2.  lots of problems i was experiencing have evaporated with the upgrade.  this feels production quality to me.  nice improvement, people.

Hi there !

I am very excited ... congrats to the team!
Just waiting all my mods are updated will install new/update. And I have seen a lot of new mods being here or are in development. SMF is really *not* dead, living better then ever! Just sneaking to simple desk as addon, sounds like nice features. And dream portal, just looking what it can better then simpleportal.

If you want to run multiple installs from a single database, you have been able to do so for a long time, just change the table prefix. If you're thinking about sharing of some data, it's not going to be in 2.0 as it's feature locked.

I wouldn't head that advice =P

Honestly, I'm not trying to be a smart *ss, but do you know more than the person updating the download page on this site?

Not suggesting anything of the sort, but seeing as it didn't work from RC1.2 to RC2, why would it work from RC1.2 to RC3? =]

Actually I think you *were* able to use the small update package from RC1.2 to RC2. And you *are* able to use now, the small update package currently for download, to update from RC2 to RC3.
You use it however, the same way as a large upgrade package: by replacing your files with the files in the package, and running the upgrade script. Simply there should be less files (only those who were modified compared to the former version, in theory).

None of them is the same with a patch to apply through package manager, if that is what you were referring to. Such patch does not exist for RC versions, and you can't update through package manager.

Hi,

I'm all but an expert so here are a few questions:

1. What is the procedure to upgrade from 1.1.11 to 2 rc3?
2. I use the simple portal 2.3.1 Is it working on RC3?
My site: mtb.slo-istra.net

EDIT: Maybe I was supposed to write this under 2.x support?!

I'm so glad!
Hopefully, I'll upgrade after around a month when the mods I use are flawlessly compatible with RC3!

And we're going to a full stable release after this, right?

Most likely. It may depend on the issues found in RC3, but I hope it won't be the case of another RC. :)

You are not rude. :)
The thing is that SMF developer team uses a model of "release when ready" for their releases, meaning that there cannot really be promises made about timing. When they will consider the software is stable enough indeed for a Gold release, the final 2.0. package will be released.
That said, RC3 is quite stable for all I've seen for the time being, I hope we're getting there. :)

Haven't checked quick edit, but quick reply definitely still has the session check in it (indeed it would be more work to actually remove it), given that it calls Post.php/Post2() which does a session check on the back of the form response from the main reply template too.

Well, it depends on your definition of obsolete. Sould would say SMF is obsolete since it isn't pursuing the MySpace/FaceBook push to be "social" (ignoring that making posts is a social activity, just a different kind than the "updates" they are thinking of).

I'd rather say that SMF the software will make progress as long as there are developers working on it.

There were and still are problems, and they are nothing to take lightly, but that doesn't mean SMF is necessarily "dead" or "dying".

Currently, as you can see, RC3 is out, and the developers are working to make sure that the remaining bugs are found and squashed, so that 2.0 final version can be out the door.

SMF in its current incarnation will probably die after the release of 2.0 final (because its current dev team will not stay forever), but it doesn't mean it'll be immediately obsolete...
Heck, it's still the best free forum software around. Just not by a large margin, unlike a couple of years ago.

Actually, most big mods that have active mod authors are updated very quickly.

I plan to have all of my mods updated by Thursday.
Most major mods are updated very shortly after release of a new version.

They're not going to go gold until the bugs get fixed. Declaring it gold when it's not ready would be worse than holding back.

No, that is not the case. In fact, no session checks have been removed for POST requests as, indeed, that would form a security risk. ;)

The session check has been removed for a few GET requests though, for example on the requests for the quick quote buttons and the 'add poll' button. The reason behind this is that those requests don't manipulate data -- therefore they do not need the check The forms they link to will require a check on submit, though! :)

I don't see what's to rush here. SMF 1.1 is very usable and functional.  Why not give time for SMF 2.0 to develop properly. Specifically when there's no rush for it. For community, mod developer and designers' feedback it is important to have betas and release candidates. That to find bugs, get suggestions for better features, etc.

Interesting. I actually left that in when adding the same function into SimpleDesk, since while I entirely see where you're coming from, Aaron, I don't think it hurts to have that be checked, but I agree it's not a *risk* to remove. I'd just rather be paranoid than lax :)

The decision belongs to the Lead Developer, afaik.
That said, the team is informed about the status and for all we know, it is most likely Gold will be next, once the remaining bugs are fixed (and there are no more new ones found, I suppose :) ).

It being there was actually reported to us, as it increases the chances of a malicious script finding the session id. I believe that's the main reason for it being removed. :)

If by manual upgrading, you mean a list of all the changes... no, and there never has been. Generally with RC changes it's just quickest to replace all the files with the Large Upgrade package.

If you're going from 1.1.x to 2.0 you have to do that anyway since virtually every mod and every theme will require reworking.

If you are masochistic and really want to try and remember to make all the edits yourself, download the install packages for RC2 and RC3. Extract them into parallel directories. Once done, run Meld, WinMerge, or plain diff against the directories to get a list of all the changes.

No, I simply wasn't thinking; I get a bit dull this time of evening.  I've manually upgraded throughout the 1.x series but I do remember, now, when 2.x was first introduced, I did a clean install on my test board. 

I'll just go at it the sane man's way.   ;)

Upgraded a couple of small forums already and everything went smoothly.

Thanks for finally releasing this version.

Stop creating drama and being so all sarcastic over the stuff. Sure, you're not some fancy rank anymore and your whole group of people don't like the people who lead SMF, but seriously, who gives a ******.

They are on top of things!

Also, many of the mods install just fine by emulating RC2.

Thanks again to all involved.

Did they need any updating in the first place...?
Apart from the title_bar and cat_bar change, I don't see what else needs being checked...
To mod authors: just make sure the 2.0 install script uses range "2.0-2.99.99", so that any future version will be accepted without changes.

I actually recommend using "2.0, 2.0.* to cover updates. Any SMF 2.1 will likely be incompatible with 2.0 mods. Likewise, I'm going to hold off on wildcarding until 2.0 is declared stable.

I'd prefer something like
Code: [Select]
<install for="2.0 RC1.2, 2.0 RC2, 2.0 RC3">
[...] // installation xmls
and
Code: [Select]
<install for="2.0 - 2.99.99">
<readme type="inline" parsebbc="true">[color=red]This mod has not been tested on your version of SMF.
It might work, or not. If you have errors, do not continue unless you know for sure what you are doing.[/color]</readme>
[...] // installation xmls

It would install just the same on present and future versions (or try to), but it would also tell the users that you didn't test it yet. (when you do, you could adjust what's included in the first one, and only the 2.0 versions not included in the first one would get the warning)

Nao: 2.0 - 2.99.99 isn't quite the same thing. You're implying it will work on any 2.x, not just 2.0.x, which will cause issues when 2.1 occurs.

There is much frustration in the air still, but even with that, why lash out? There's no need for it, especially as he's moved on by his own admission. Either let it go, or get involved in fixing it, don't just whine about it.

Your range would also cover 2.1, which would likely be incompatible with mods unless it was the smallest of edits. There is/was also a weird bug where ranges like 1.0.9-1.0.99 break. I just usually prefer the asterisk because of that.


Either let it go, or get involved in fixing it, don't just whine about it.

Exactly. Devolving into a person who makes random snips is just unproductive, bad for one's health, and a waste of time.

Post by: Nao 尚 on March 10, 2010, 05:27:10 PM
I see what you mean... And I didn't see a problem in that in order to install 2.1, one would have to reinstall all mods anyway (it's not a patch upgrade, it's a major upgrade that requires overwriting files.) In which case, if reinstalling the mod over it doesn't work, yes, it needs updating -- but in the unlikely case that it does work, it saves me the need to update the file at all ;)

Okay,
My server crashed and after many years of a given message board I'm looking at a change.  SM seems interesting but two problems:
First - This place's comments seem to indicate it may not be a stable organization! Why should anyone add the SM message board when the site's own boards show so much in-fighting and animosity??
Second -  If I were to decide to go with SM, how difficult will the migration from 1.x to 2.x be?  Is it worth messing with right now?

Lazarus_Long: Well... there has been fighting, but in any sizeable organisation that's been around years, you'll get that. It just means that all concerned want what's best and have different ideas on how that should be achieved.

The migration from 1.x to 2.x is straightforward enough provided that you can find suitable mod and theme replacements that suit - not all 1.x mods work on 2.x and similar for themes. Additionally most themes that predate 2.0 RC2 will need major work to update.

Personally I think 2.0 RC3 is stable enough for most forums now.
Title: Re: SMF 2.0 Release Candidate 3 is out!
Post by: [unplugged] on March 10, 2010, 07:18:16 PM
Same here. I uploaded all of the files from RC3 (overwriting what was there), ran upgrade.php, reinstalled mods (having to emulate RC2 for some, and manual edits for a few). Done. Quite smooth and headache free.

I can only guess, but I would assume that it was brought into the open because it was already there anyway.  I agree with Arantor.  Any large organization with passionate people at the helm will have to endure some contention.

On the bright side, it would seem the worst is over.  RC3 was released this week.  Many of the mod authors have jumped back into action.  I had my forums using RC3 and all the mods I use were updated in less than 24 hours.  Heck even a couple mods that had been archived were brought up to date.  (Ones I had been silently waiting for)

^^ I agree ^^ I'm using RC3 on live sites.  I couldn't be happier. 

If I were going to migrate from another forum to SMF, I'd go straight for 2.0.
