Title: SMF 2.0.18 Released
Post by: Suki on February 01, 2021, 04:50:07 PM
Dear Members,

Simple Machines is pleased to announce a new patch for the 2.0.x line of SMF, which pushes the version number to 2.0.18.

The patch is focused on PHP 7.4 support as well as other issues encountered on previous versions such as



Please see the changelog (https://download.simplemachines.org/index.php?thanks;filename=smf_2-0-18_changelog.txt) for more information.


If you are currently using version 2.0.17 you can perform the update using the package manager, once available you will see a notification update within your admin panel. please run the scheduled task "Fetch Simple Machines files" from the Scheduled Tasks page (Admin > Maintenance > Scheduled Tasks). Same logic applies if you want to update your forum from an older version, you can apply each patch successively until you reach out to 2.0.18


If you use an older version of SMF, you can upgrade directly to 2.0.18 from whichever version you are currently using by using the "Large Upgrade" package from the Download (https://download.simplemachines.org) page. Be aware that using this upgrade method will require you to reinstall any customizations that you have added to your forum, so if you are running a version of the 2.0.x series, it is recommended that you apply the successive patches instead of using the Large Upgrade.

If you are having problems downloading the patch from the admin panel, you can download the patch package from the Package Manager Updates (https://custom.simplemachines.org/upgrades/) page and install it via the Package Manager, as you would any other mod package.

Please refer to the Online Manual for more details about patching (https://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Patching) and upgrading (https://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Upgrading).



Finally, as always, please do not use this topic for support requests. You will receive a much quicker and better response by posting in the 2.0.x Support Board (https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?board=147.0).

Thank you for using SMF!

Regards,
Simple Machines

Jeez.

You could rephrase that as "Minor version patches to 2.0.x are not intended to add major new features".

Good work. Thanks. :)

The package version is 0.1.0 in the package manager. I guess it should be 1.0

SMF 2.0.18 Update 0.1.0

Important: If someone made a change to the script.js file from this tutorial, he should restore the original codes in this file before updating to 2.0.18

Hello,
Congratulations for this update.

Is there a topic where the files that have been modified are listed?
Let me explain, I have a lot of mods and homemade scripts and I think that updating normally won't work.
and I'd rather not go through all the files if it's not necessary.
Thanks in advance ;)

Here you go: https://custom.simplemachines.org/upgrades/index.php?action=upgrade;file=smf_patch_2.0.18.tar.gz;smf_version=2.0.17

Best way to cycle through the files is to Ctrl+F for ./ (all file names have that in front).

you do know that you can apply patches via the package manager rather than overwriting to upgrade?
