I'm not saying it should be forgot completely - I'm saying we should all concentrate on the future rather than the past... And if you can't understand that, then I guess there isn't much we can say or do to make you understand... But really, those of us that were actually involved in it all could really be insulted by the way you seem to know best ::)

Hi there!

The community is now after several years and very much updates and rc´s and almost several months again very, very sensibilised ... the only way to hold them is to communicate, every single step forward, but what do they do?

Total radio silence ...
So long, Mike

I don't think "total radio silence" really describes the situation at all... The fact of the matter is, there isn't much to tell as far as I know.
We have told you that we are in the process of transferring the project completely from the LLC to an NPO,
and that process is currently going fine after some delays with getting signatures etc.
We have also told you (when RC5 was released) that the team is working on getting final ready and out the door ASAP
after the transfer is complete.

Now, tell me what reason do YOU have to not let go of the past?

I know of no reason why the SMF January split should ever be forgot.

Oh dear lord...     



Dismal... do you know that V actually fought for his own reasons and not somebody else's right ?   you know... things that actually happen to him...


4 people directly involved have told us their point of view and told us that they already have move on...   which of course does not mean J10 is totally forgotten...  nobody has said that...

People move on if they want to. I was around and caught up in all that happened back then. As has been said, most of us have moved on. We will never forget what has happened and we should not.  You all look at what happened as a negative thing. Yes, SMF did go through a dark time but it survived and is now, growing stronger than ever. If you all want to dwell on the past and not help SMF move on to the next stage, that's your choice. I choose to help it along and nurture it's course to where I know it should be. This is the goal you should all be focused on....not what has happened, but what will..


You know - I was one of those that were effectivily kicked out of the team without any warning back then. I refused to accept the way I - and many others - were treated back then. I also stayed away for a longish period after that, and took part in the work to rebuild bridges and fix the bigger issues of the team and corporate structure.. After I saw things were really moving towards the better, and I saw more and more our demands from J10 and after being met - Guess what, I'm back again, and working for the team that once "stabbed me in the back".
I forgot, I forgave, and I aimed to make myself useful again in a project I still love.

Now, tell me what reason do YOU have to not let go of the past?


yup, pretty much.

All of the people directly and indirectly involved have let it go, moved on, or rejoined.
The only people obsessing over it, these days, appear to be those who were indirectly and tangentially involved in the fallout conversations.





It sounds like a pompous thing to say, but none of you were there, so you'll never know or understand what happened or why it became what it did. If you weren't there, just forget about it. It is no longer of any concern to you. Just as MAS said, nobody who wasn't on the team can fully understand it, so you all need to just let it go. It's insulting to those of us who had to go through it when you spout on about it.

What does this have to do anything with V?  ???
“There is no god, and that’s the simple truth. If every trace of any single religion were wiped out and nothing were passed on, it would never be created exactly that way again. There might be some other nonsense in its place, but not that exact nonsense. If all of science were wiped out, it would still be true and someone would find a way to figure it all out again."

Using a modified V's phrase gives you a hint?

I use his line as a reference, yes, but it is irrelevant.

I not following up SMF from past some time, but I think it's much better if we leave this thread for developer's to talk i.e to give us update about the upcoming gold release.

Did that one last person we needed a signature from, who was supposed to sign last week, actually do so?

finishing up on open dev issues and making the build.

just because the paperwork is signed does not mean "we release this instant" since, in all the time it took to get this done, additional bugs were reported and fixed (or are in the process of being fixed)
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

Things are moving along though. We are not stagnant anymore, waiting around for things to happen. We can now make things happen. :)

Hi there!

Ok that are good news, which really could be reported and no need to be secret to the community ;-)
So now it makes sense to look at the bug tracker, some of the last months it was more frustrating to look there.

When the major and block issues are done it seems well to await a release within days I think (this step had we already ... last year!).
So long, Mike

A release won't be within the next few days but it is getting closer. I'm not even sure when a release is scheduled for. No one but the Devs no that AFAIK.

c23_Mike,

there was no hiding it...   I would have thought that it was obvious. :P

but as for "last year", there were indeed plans to get this all done last year, but legal stuff got dragged out, etc etc etc.
