Not to mention that a number of features that were mods in 1.1 are now core in 2.0.
That's interesting.

Unfortunately, SMF 2.0 is feature-frozen.


...it was feature-frozen after any new features (like WYSIWYG, requestable groups, etc.) were added. It's not like development on SMF 2.0 started January 1st, 2009...

Thanks for the answer =)
@karlbenson,
Which or how much bugs marked "will resolved" in RC3 ? =)
So Long

karlbenson

No idea.
Quick answer, as many as possible.  Sadly most of the remaining ones are stubborn little insects.  The team, beta testers, and even non-teamies have been very helpful in debugging some bugs, and even offering solutions/fixes.

Hopefully RC3 will be a much faster turn around then rc1 (aka beta5 within some circles :P) to rc2

Fall starts September 23rd.  I can hardly wait for RC2's solutions.

Here's hoping both RC2's Curve and Core have the long-awaited solutions to the problems we've reported in RC1's default Theme (soon to be renamed Core, I understand).

The database will remain the same, right?

It's always been named Core, even in the 1.1 releases. All that is changing is that it's being moved out of the default position. It's also being re-based to clean up a lot of those issues in RC1.

I don't believe there have been any structural changes, but some columns have changed type for performance reasons (we're trying to eliminate as many slow queries as practically possible). The upgrade script will make the necessary changes when you run it.

Good to know Motoko-chan, Thanks.
Many forums are going to crash during the upgrades  :D

:o I hope not!
Believe me, many installed there forums through fantastico and do all the upgrades from the admin panel. Large upgrade is another music.

The support team should be ready for a massive support.  8)

CarpeDiem

Will our forums go into a maintenance mode where the message "Okay faithful users...we're attempting to..." be displayed while the upgrade is taking place, and will the upgrade script do this automatically?

青山 素子

CarpeDiem, yes. There is an option on the upgrade tool to enable maintenance mode.

Motoko-chan,

I'm one of those people who can't seem to get the install or upgrade tools to work through my webhost because of failed uploads, but I can always do the manual approach just fine by first downloading to my home computer and then, second, ftp-ing all the files to my website.

QUESTION:  Will the upgrade tool allow me to ftp the upgrade ZIP file myself to my forum folder along with the upgrade.php and, then, will the upgrade.php be able to process the ZIP (or unzipped) files since they'll already be uploaded there together in the same initial forum folder?

Again, the upgrade.php doesn't seem to be able to get through my webhost to upload files, so this way I'll put the ZIP file there for the upgrade tool to use myself with my ftp which always works, and the problem (actually, for many of us who have this problem) of uploading files with the upgrade tool will be bypassed and solved.
