Can say right now that TinyPortal mod will NOT work for a LONG time ahead with the new SMF 2.
So for those members that have TP and dont want to loose it, Dont install or upgrade to the new SMF version.
As mentioned in this thread, some mods will take months to be updated, and TP is definatly one of these mods.

I was expecting a long wait for TP but it is well worth the wait. I will be the first to install it when it comes out. :) it's going to be great with SMF 2.0, can't wait. :)

As a note,

if you go to the mod site and select 'advanced search', and select just 2.0 beta 3 Public from the version dropdown, you can see which mods have been updated.

is there any reason why SMF Gallery WOULDN'T work?  I mean, isn't that pretty much a standalone add on?  Will tell you later when I try, I suppose!

Any mods which use queries WON'T work.  They need to be changed to the new format

Only simple mods will work.

Which is typically any mod that's adding in a new feature, since they have to add or modify the database.

dzinerstudio has updated all of his themes to work for the beta, per his site he was just waiting on the beta to go public, so there will be some strong themes out of the gate.

Was surprised there wasn't tighter coordination between Bloc and the Beta crew to keep that TP window as short as possible.  Not complaining, but just sayin'.

Bloc has still not released TP 1.x to the public. I assume, once that is done, then upgrading TP to 2.0 will be on their list of priorities.

Glad to hear that Dziner is right on the ball with their themes. I really do like theirs. Actually, I haven't seen any updates for Bikken's themes. Either on this site or DzinerStudio official site.

Since there are quite a few mods for all the versions of SMF, is there a way to search the mod site based on version you are running? (I am not aware of a way to search by version) Or even just a category for any new 2.0 mods? It would just make it easier to find the new mods :) 

Thanks for the release too  :D

What is the etiquette on updating some one else's mod?  I'm guessing there would be a difference between doing it for personal use and redistributing it back here.

If you update it for your personal use, it shouldn't be a problem. If you want to redistribute, you should get the author's permission first unless they specified a license that allows redistribution.

As the author of couple of mods in the mod site; should we upgrade our mods to the beta? Wouldn't there be a further change that will effect our mods until the final release? What if we wait for the release candidate or the final release?

The db-level stuff should be frozen for the most part. The theme stuff is still subject to change, however.

In general, I would recommend starting work on updating mods. The changes from now to final should be easy to update for and much smaller than the work of porting the mods from 1.1 to 2.0.

You can also wait for the first RC or even final, but be prepared to deal with very impatient people who decided they couldn't wait and upgraded.

So far there are 51 mods 2.0 compatible.
