Title: Changes of note since SMF 2.0 RC3
Post by: [SiNaN] on May 20, 2011, 08:24:18 AM
Hello everyone,

While we are finalizing our preparations for the SMF 2.0 final release, having found some free time to cool my head off, I thought I would deal with another thing which I have been planning to do for months: making a post noting the important changes since RC3.

Yep. This is a long long delayed post noting the important changes made to SMF 2.0, which mostly affects modification authors, as well as the regular forum administrators, since SMF 2.0 RC3 version. If you are looking for a status update on SMF 2.0 development, check out my last blog post (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=432988.0), if you haven't done yet.

Package database functions forced UNSIGNED attribute for numeric fields
Membergroup changes through profile were not being logged
Always allow personal messages from self
Table creation did not return success or failure
Guests reporting posts did not log e-mail and IP, and did not support visual verification
addMembersToGroup behavior for 'auto' mode was not correct
Configurable extensive security checks for attachments and avatars
create_table function no long updates "update" columns
Upgraded modifications were not uninstalled properly
It was not possible to pass variables by reference for integration functions

Language file cache
Fallback for language strings
Protected groups for too powerful groups
