Forgive me but i don't see any 'crap' in this topic! Do you mean the different opinions? It's obvious that Simple Machines failed to reach their time target in regards to smf2, any critisim must be acceptable.
I dun't have time to reed your answear. When is the noo version releezed?

Oh my, it was just a joke, wasn't it obvious? Me being a beta tester and everything...

You forgot to put the [Ironic Mode] tag around it ;D

I agree. Smf failed in regards to SMF 2, and big time as said by one of its main developers as well. I mean, it is not like they are creating the superforum or anything like that. Almost all the new features that they are introducing in 2.0 have been introduced since years ago in the other forums. Anyhow, I think that Smf should come out with an official statement as to what caused the delay and give a general description how things are progressing and not keep dragging things along with that It-will-be-ready-when-it-is-ready type of speech. I think they owe it to their members and especially the Charter Members :)

Well, to me it is... I wouldn't switch to something else for anything in the world. It is a work of beauty.

I don't think this is true.

There is already such a statement in this very topic. ^^

I think you misunderstood me. I never said that you or anyone else should switch away from Smf :)

It is, but that is another subject and I don''t want to get into it :)

I was just making my point -- that SMF is "the" superforum to me.

When you are a project where your developers contribute in their spare time. This affects the actual work output since the time they can contribute is affected by things like their full-time job, family issues, and other outside incidents.

I'll try to sumarize some of the things said in this very long topic.

Things got delayed a bit because of the security updates we made for 1.1.7 and an additional security audit for some areas in 2.0.

We do anticipate a first RC as the next release, but depending on the status of certain dependant items, we may issue a beta soon. It depends on how quickly a few things are completed.

I know one huge item we are working on is making our templates semantic. We've recently added one additional member to work on that effort and things are moving smoothly in that area.

I personally anticipate a release in the first quarter, but as I said above, it depends a lot on the free time our developers can make.

thank you, Motoko!  O:)

Yes, SMF is a bit behind some of the other boards when it comes to features but, most of the others are paid programs and their development is underwritten by a corporation. It is best to remember that SMF is, and will always be, a free program which will have multiple delays because of limited time developers can spare. Projected time of delivery is just that, nothing was ever written in stone.

As a CM, I don't feel that the team owes me anything. I donated $50 because I really appreciate what they're doing, and wanted to give something back.

My exact same thoughts. (Although I did want that SMF2 beta at the time ;))
I'm no longer a CM though -- spent way too much time working for the community, I figured I didn't have to contribute financially on top of that. But for users who don't have the time to contribute, it's great to be able to know that you can help financially! :)

Given I don't really follow forum software anymore, but I've been using SMF on a few personal sites since the 1.1 beta days and I haven't found another freeware solution that I think is as elegant and useful.  I'm happily using 2b4 on two sites now, one vanilla, one custom themed.

The long development time of SMF2 has been frustrating, but it's fine... people contribute on their own time and as a developer I know how bugs/issues can cause estimates to be missed.  :)

Kudos to the team.

I second that!

Things change over time. You're welcome to start talking about what's new in Beta 4, and the conversation might then go back to that.

At the moment nothing is new in 2b4. In fact it's very* close to being obsolete.



*Please note that "very" is a relative term that does not imply any particular week. Kthnx.

Somehow, the same thing could be said of Vista... But it was actually worse than XP. Hopefully SMF2 lives up to the hype, as opposed to the dreaded OS ;)
