wow! this is very exciting! i love smf and tweaked the crap out of my board.
 i wonder if there will be any innovations with the calendar?! it seems people have been linking to the google calendar instead of using our boards the way we want them too. i guess that might be a lot to ask though. lol
my other concern might be existing mods such as the warning system since now it'll be included in the core... wonder if this might end up being a fresh install for me.

love you guys and love your work!!!

really great changes.
but why you don't add referral system?
that is one of the most wanted changes.

Yes, me too! I like SMF than many other free open source Forum but I  do not need only forum, it must be intergrated with others system like Gallary, CMS

I think we will design an independence system to manage users, than other application base on it!
NTH is for me, I love her...

I have installer lots and lots (about 25) mods on 1.1.2... will that effect me upgrading?

Yes.
Most likely all mods will have to be updated (or recoded) to work with 2.0.

the themes are likely going to have to be remade or updated for 2.0.  The changes in the language strings alone nearly ensure incompatibility :P

I am going to hate to see the changelist for 1.1 > 2.0 themes :P
Actually, it isn't that hard... As Thantos said, the upgrader does all the language string changes for you. After upgrading, it took me about 30 minutes to upgrade my theme completely (a lot of it debugging some initial problems).
Basically, open a diff utility (I use Meld for Linux, although WinMerge is a good Windows equivalent), and compare SMF 1.1's default theme to SMF 2.0's. Copy and paste all the changes, and you have an upgraded theme. Most themes only have custom index.template.php, Display.template.php, and BoardIndex.template.php files, which makes it a lot quicker :).

I have installer lots and lots (about 25) mods on 1.1.2... will that effect me upgrading?
The upgrade will remove any currently-installed mods. You'd need to wait for the mod authors to upgrade their mods
To all mod authors: Don't be afraid, we're working on documentation for this :D

So when I reinstall the mods on 2.0 will I then get back all the things I had added to them before. For example when I reinstall the links page will my existing links still be there and when I reinstall custom profile fields will the information that people added to their fields still be there??

That depends on how the mod creator did it.
But most of the time everything should still be there.

You won't need to reinstall this -- it will be built into 2.0.  You should ask the mod author if he plans on writing something to convert the mod's data into the 2.0 database structure
