Hi there,

For you all who have installed the SMF2.0 beta 3 public release version. I know this is a beta so there will still be bugs.

As compare with 1.1.4 what are the biggest different and is it worth making the switch now and how complicated would that be?

there are a lot of changes. Please read the announcement thread for details.

upgrading is easy... but making the switch now or later is up to you. If you arew comfortable running a beta, with known issues... and are comfortable making code changes on your own as the fixes become known, then go ahead.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

I made the switch over mainly for the built in subscriptions. However now that I have upgraded all the small features stand out and I prefer it over 1.1.4. I have only run across a few bugs, none that are show stoppers.

The upgrade process, for the most part, is quite easy.  But it also will depend on your current status of your forum.  If you have a large number of customization, themes and/or 'issues' it will be complicated.

If you are using mods and custom themes I would hold off on upgrading, unless like rsw686, it has a key feature you want and need now.
