JBlaze OK. I want to say just: SMF developers thinks to us as This Update releasing.

This works must more professinally.

Uhm no? SMF 2.0 RC5 is basically 2.0 final, yes there are a few bugs left, but the main thing causing the delay is the legal stuff with licensing which is taking time. Really, I'm sorry, but people just need to be patient, the devs are working hard.

If you don't believe it, just look at the changelogs.

I just saw this update when visiting the admin panel in my forum and when i checked here, no announcement had yet been made. :)

I don't understand why a change in licence is preventing the release of 2.0 final. Shouldn't a change in licence be able to be made quickly and easily if properly planned in advance? 5 years and 2.0 final is still baking... Honestly, i think it's just a clever way for the developers to say that the final version is not yet ready! Packing my non-existent admin hopes until 2012! LOL

But i greatly appreciate the efforts put into the fixes. I will definitely upgrade to 1.1.13 but i don't know if a 2.0 RC6 might be out later on, given the very unusual trend on SMF, so i'll just stick to my RC4 to avoid unnecessary work in re-installing all my modifications, manual edits and themes. With such a huge amount of time (as my brother made 2 kids in that same development time. LOL) i can only hope (for the sake of this software's reputation!) that when 2.0 gold is finally out, it won't be too buggy, if at all.

Did you see the first post? lol

Good job Team. One step closer!!!

Well, technically speaking no. But there are so few bugs left that it is SOOO close.

So, can we take from this that the final release is no where near being released? sigh

And yes, thanks to the developers for their hard work but this announcement is not good news.

We hope to improve our release process and speed, and we will see what comes.

At the moment, as several security issues were fixed in SMF 1.1.12 and SMF 2.0 RC4, they absolutely need to be available to the community.
To-do lists are for deferral. The more things you write down the later they're done... until you have 100s of lists of things you don't do.
