Title: SMF 2.1 Support (READ FIRST)
Post by: Kindred on November 21, 2014, 10:24:58 AM
We have released the beta 1 version of SMF v2.1.

This means that people are going to install it. :D
That is excellent. We appreciate everyone who installs the software -- most especially during the beta phase, because - although we have been testing the alpha version for a while, and fixing the issues that we discovered, wide spread use in many different environments is certain to expose things that need adjustment. That's what Beta versions are intended for!

A few things that you should keep in mind, though.

And once again, thank you for participating in the beta testing and the overall process of helping to make the next version of SMF be an incredible product.

Once you have SMF 2.1 running you can now look in more detail at what needs to be tested or fixed. On Github you can look at the recent commits here ( and see what the developers and contributors have committed to SMF. Based on these commits you can get a good idea of what has recently changed.
Create a few accounts on your new install and start doing any type of test with those features you can think of.
If you find an issue or question on how things should work, post your questions in this board or your issues/bugs on github on the issue tracker here (

You can also check the recent updated issues for bugs and pull requests that are being discussed, these are things that can be tested and commented on to give feedback to the developers. The list can be found here (
