SMF is the one and only medicine for vBulletin's monopoly pandemia.

+1!

In the meantime, i'm busy trying to help in the support section, to give the devs some slack from having to provide support additionally to fixing the SMF code. Let's make this thing happen ppl! I bet my one and a half cookie (the one in my hand) for a Wednesday release too! Unless the devs surprise us with an earlier release. ;)

Personally I'm not worried about getting hassled. I'll let you in on a secret: the whole reason I insisted we give a deadline was because, having seen how this goes over the last few years, I thought that if we didn't give a deadline this thing would never happen. IOW, I'm as pissed with it as some other people are. I actually wanted the dev crew, including myself, to feel the pressure. I was totally sick of hearing "It'll be ready when it's ready" and "Soon" and (FFS) "No, really really soon. Really." It made me embarrassed to be associated with the project and I was ready to strangle kittens if I heard it again.

I've been thinking about this post (and the news that fixes for the remaining low priority bugs are being postponed to 2.1) - it's the most reassuring I've seen in a long time. I'd begun to think all the developers were living in some ivory tower where they continually chased after the totally unreachable goal of not releasing the software until it was perfect. At least somebody realises that unquantifiable damage has been done to the reputation of the project due to the never ending delays. We'll never know how many more people might have used SMF if it had ever been released instead of going elsewhere.

Good on you Antechinus!

Cheers...

The release process isn't (unfortunately) a ten second job and we have just finished making the last minute changes. Depends how much time Norv has to push the relevant buttons. It's Monday in that part of the world IIRC, so I would assume that means working for a living is going to take up some time. You may have to wait a few days.

I assure you that I'm not the only person on the team that realises the delays have been damaging, nor am I the only dev that has a practical attitude. ;)

Well, it's good to see some owning up to a bit of the delay issues. I guess you couldn't find another scapegoat to blame since the last one is gone from the picture now.

This looks like a new episode in the infamous reality series "SMF team fights and quits". Damn... 2.0 final looks very far away all of a sudden. :( *deep sigh*

SMF 7 is where it gets good. That has time travel. You can go back and post before the guy who flamed you. :P

The team couldn't care less about the moaning. Seriously, they're not a bunch of emotionally insecure toddlers who are going to run into a wall and cry if you startle them.

While we're at it, let's complain about the French Revolution.
