All,

During Saturday 30th December there is an upgrade planned for the community forum to take it up to the latest "Development Edition". Due to the scale of changes that will take place during this upgrade - and the fact that this site is built around SMF "Development Edition" - we anticipate a few hours of downtime while we thoroughly test the upgraded forum and track down any integration issues.

While we hope to minimize the disruption to the site here, as a precautionary measure we will be opening our "backup" forum during this time. You can find the backup forum at www.simplemachinesforum.net where our support staff will be available to answer any support queries during this time. SMF downloads will remain available from the main site page.

We are planning on starting at 3pm GMT

Regards,

Simple Machines

The Development Edition is simply the name of the version under development.

Any timeframe for this downtime? Or will it be at any time during that day?

AFAIK, it only opens when this forum is closed ;)

Normally we put it in Maintenance Mode between downtime but we took it out of that and just removed access to the boards so our team members (and the public as a result) could register and then have their access setup.  Before we start here we'll make the support boards accessible.

We haven't nailed down an exact time yet.  Once we do we'll edit the first post (and probably post in the topic itself) with it.

hey i just wanted to ask a simple off topic discussion
will this effect the package manager area?
cos I have noticed that when SMF is down for whatever reason, the Package manager area in my SMF fails to load up completely
I dont know why but I am guessing it has something to do with fetching the latest mods from smf part?

SleePy

This shouldn't affect other parts of the SMF site.
You just will not be able to use the community forums while the update takes place.
So the package manager should still function properly.

@Sleepy:  Actually this will affect the entire site.
@akulion:  Fortuantly the packges.xml file doesn't do dynamic loading so the package manager should work.  Though the mod site will be down for a bit.

J. Williams

Hopefully this will be amazing since SMF shows pure potential (and a lot more than certain others in my honest opinion)

I just figured that out when Jay was talking he had to update the mod site to work with the new DE that was coming.

a new version of SMF ?? That poses a few problems ... I need to check again if all my mods will work with the new version ... and some of them will apparently not ... i like to keep my forum up-to-date and that's a big pain in the b*tt ... please make sure there will be no updates for sometime now and this new version is as complete as humanly possible ... thanks

SleePy

pulkit,

This Version of SMF isn't released yet... Its in development. They are updating the Development CVS version here to a higher version..

Indeed - as Sleepy said this is purely about the site here - to warn users we are upgrading the support forums. There is no need to worry about another release!

Truly since it may annoy SMF users but would excite the crowd and so forth plus the interval seems small :)

whew ... i thought i'd have to upgrade to a newer version ... that would have made my site members really mad because in the recent past i'v been updating versions and they have had to deal with new and missing features from time to time. they want something stable ... come to think of it, so do I.

and please don't think i don't like SMF. I love it but the upgrades and incompatible mods just get to me.

SMF is an on going project and there will always be updates to it. You are not required to upgrade to the latest (but you are encourage)...

Some of the less used forums I have still use 1.0.2 because I simply don't feel like upgrading them... but my most used forum uses 1.1.1 and will always be up to date :)

At least one of this is fixed now klumy. The WYSIWYG editor doesn't seem to be on the site theme at the moment.

I most certainly hope so. Who on this planet (or others) would want to change away from SMF?
