QuoteHow can I patch a modded forum safely? I can only find packages which will completely overwrite existing files. Is there a diff I can use?
Quote// Do we have a mime type we can simpy use?
Quote from: Grudge on December 16, 2006, 08:55:37 AMWe would urge all users of SMF 1.0.9 and below to upgrade to SMF 1.1.1 but we will continue to patch the SMF 1.0 line as required.
QuoteIs there a set date or condition as to when support for the older version will expire?

This is only a guess though, don't take my word on it
Quote from: Grudge on December 18, 2006, 04:45:11 AMAlso - we should be supporting 1.0 with security patches indefinetely IMHO. There's no great need not to IMHO.

Quote from: eldʌkaː on December 21, 2006, 11:24:11 PMNo, this is for 1.0.9 ONLY.
Quote from: eldʌkaː on December 22, 2006, 12:09:53 AMGo to the download page, and use the 'Large Upgrade' package, or just use the Webinstaller. That will take you to 1.1.1.
Quote from: KGIII on December 21, 2006, 07:53:49 AMIf SMF does do that and sustains it they'll be the first and only. I'll give kudos where they're due and so my expectation is that, if there is any team capable or willing? It'd be this one. On the other hand, it seems unlikely and unrealistic but what the heck? I'll root for you.
Quote from: KGIII on December 21, 2006, 04:48:21 AMI won't delve into it here but, well, why is it people will maintain a car but when it comes to an operating system, security application, or even software that they use for their site that folks are so inclined to say, "I have what I need, I won't go past here?" *sighs*
Quote from: Motoko-chan on December 23, 2006, 07:12:28 PMSince the released SMF versions are feature-locked, it isn't too impossible to continue patching SMF. The only think I could think that would stop it would be if there was a problem with the architecture itself that prevented patching.
