Related to bugs or just improvements?Not many. All We're doing is fixing things for cross browser support (IE sux) and tweaking a few paddings and floats here and there. So there are some minor template changes but nothing like the last lot.You can run an RC3 theme on the latest svn and it'll work just fine. Some of the padding in RC3 themes will look a bit wonky on some pages but you wont notice much else except that things will be less broken in some browsers. From a themer's point of view it's not major drama.

In the last few months there is nothing happening with SMF, no sorry it is, a lot of politics. I was waiting for MODx Revolution (almost two years) to start my next big Project and I was searching for a forum software and thought i found it in SMF but after i was reading the Forum and other sites I'm not sure anymore. I was also waiting for phpBB 3 but I didn't like that what came out but as things are standing right now I think the best thing to do is to go back to phpBB. WTF happened to this Software, at the moment i get the feeling it's like Duke Nukem. Are the good news that the RC4 is going to be out soon? I'm reading that for a while in the forum, nothing happens. If things go on like this the Software is going to be old when it gets released. You started the Development with PHP3? Then you had to convert to PHP4 then to PHP5 and as things are going soon to PHP6? When is this going to end? If you still have old PHP3 code in it you can never perform like software written in PHP5. I just don't get it. What is going on? Ok, now i wanted to thank the Developers for they work, they are not fault for bad Management (like Vista, the Developers weren't fault that the software was a piece of junk, or you can blame the Developers that they started over with Duke Nukem three times and changed the Engine three times, it was the management), they are just doing as they told. You have a few very good things in your software and I hope you can finish it but I don't believe in it, it takes too long.For all of those who will now post, do it yourself, I'm only programming/altering software for my needs, I don't do it professionally, I'm not good enough to do it professionally(in my opinion), I'm a supporter, I can analyze code, I can find problems and I was thinking about to join but then I found a few thing and thought to myself, no thank you. I'm living in a Democracy (such a nice word on paper, but as soon as a human says it it's something bad and It doesn't work) and if i wanted a "dictate" I would go to China.Such great Software, such a shame, i feel sorry for every developer...just my two cents...LordRaydenP.S. For those who don't have arguments and therefore point out the typos, Sorry English is my third language...
