Quote from: dvance on February 05, 2011, 02:53:30 AMCome on with the final already. I have been one of the few that has been waiting VERY patiently and has kept my mouth shut with the long delay, infighting, legal BS, etc, but enough is enough. I know it's free software, but I've had enough.WHEN is 2.0 final going to be released? I don't want to hear reasons, excuses, or push-offs; I want a flat answer. There are other boards that are just as capable as SMF, but I have been loyal and prefer to stick with SMF.And of course I expect this post to be deleted and me be banned; that seems to be the history here from what I've been reading.

Quote from: AmaZulu on February 06, 2011, 06:01:48 AMNo offense intended to the SMF team who do a great job. But the team needs to understand that if they want to stay current and remain a force in the forum software world, they need to tighten up development times. I've just spent a few hours looking at IPBoard features this morning and I think that this is the way forward for me. I'd love to give the money to SMF, who brought me here to begin with, but I have to think about the future. I can't wait around hoping for a stable 2.0 indefinitely.

Quote from: newn on February 05, 2011, 07:41:18 PMI'm waiting for SMF 2.0 final, because I want to make a good and nice forum without the need to RE-DO everything, every plugin, which requires cross-file edit, template, etc.
Quote from: AmaZulu on February 06, 2011, 01:34:39 AMI have got to say that having been a user of SMF since 2006, I am also beginning to look at alternatives because of this seemingly endless delay in getting 2.0 final released. There are some major features that I need from it in order to continue to grow my community, most specifically the paid subscriptions model.

Quote from: 青山 素子 on February 06, 2011, 01:46:56 PMIs there some problem with starting with the RCs? They are called "release candidates" for a reason.
