I need to update it again. Last time it was updated was about 3 weeks ago or so I think.

How often do you update ? I'm thinking of migrating to 2.1 (yes I know not recommended) but it's a small forum and I think the benefits make it worth while. On the plus side will help with the testing / fault finding  ;D

When you use the nightly download: https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=558451.0
you got a file with a url in there,
where you see how mutch commits/changes are behinde and
so you can "scan" if some changes could break (mostly when upgrade/install file get touches) your setup.

Testing with it is a good thing. Taking it live is a different story. To keep it up to date there is a lot of updating to do. Not to many mods or themes are out for it yet either.

You outdid yourselves with this version guys. Keep up the great work.

I have one question though, someone said that Smf 2.1. has been in development for 6 years and it has not reached the stable version yet. What is with the delay? 6 years is quite a long time to be spent on one version imho.

Do you want a good, solid, secure piece of software or do you want something fast?  You cant have both.

We are all volunteers, including the developers. They work when they have the time to do so and the software will be released when it's ready, not by any arbitrary timeline.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

As Kindred said. And as much as we'd love to see it released soon, we have to go with the pace everyone has time to work with. Because of this, any help is always appreciated, be it with small fixes, to reporting bugs, translations, etc :)
