I'm just concerned that the drama and difficulties that followed up to the release of 2.0 final will continue to haunt the 1.1.x branch, hence possibly making it harder for the SMF team to provide support for it, but hopefully i'm mistaken. 2.0 being released as NPO means that it's finally open to any other group of coders to take over and customize, so 2.0's future is looking much brighter than 1.1.x to me right now. I know 1.1.x is old, but it still works great on all my forums and thousands of others, so i'm very concerned about 1.1's future, although i fully comprehend that it is entitled to only receive bug fixes and no new features, which is perfectly fine by me.

P.S. LOL i had to submit many times before this post was accepted due to all the excitement with 2.0 final release and hectic replies. Congratulations, SMF team! :D

that means the dev team is not done with everything that is part of the announcement that 2.0 is finally released and if you want a bit that message will disappear as well as an official announcement be made.

Just to clarify about 1.1.14, only the languages are currently available. The install, upgrade and update packages for 1.1.14 still haven't been released. I am using the drop-down menu on the right of the download page, where it says "Select Version:". BTW, 1.1.13 and 1.1.14 are missing from that list.
I'm not trying to put any unnecessary pressure on the SMF team. It would be futile at this point anyway, as the release process has already begun. I'm just pointing out stuff that might help the team iron out any glitches faster.

Cheers!

There are plenty of manual changes necessary to complete the release process. I would suggest waiting until the announcement is made. Otherwise the packages might bite you! :P

I decided to wait after I downloaded the large update package, and it went corrupt on me xD

I've done the large upgrade and as promised all of the data in my packages reappeared after I reinstalled them.

In short, I am well happy!

The upgrade.php process stuck during step 4 - changing database tables - but once I started it again it picked up at the same stage and finished just fine.

So, all is good :)


A huge, massive thank you to the brilliant SMF team!

Thanks for letting us know! I got bitten a few times already. I managed to find the upgrade package for 1.1.14 but its change log won't download. BTW, why isn't the 1.1.14 release found on the download page?

I could download the changelog for 1.1.14 version just fine.

1.1.14 is no longer listed on the main download page because 2.0 is now the stable version. You can find versions older than 2.0 in Archived Releases page, including 1.1.14.

That looks much tidier. Also looks slightly more appealing (to me at least).

It's working now. :)
BTW, special thanks to you, [SiNaN]. I also use SimplePortal on all my forums, quite intensively. I hope a new SP is planned soon for 2.0 final?

Also, now that SMF 2.0 Gold is out, i must ask you... why isn't One Piece in your Anime List? :D Seriously, it's the best anime in the world.

Thanks again!

There will probably be a quick bug fix release and the long awaited 2.4 release soon after.

Also, now that SMF 2.0 Gold is out, i must ask you... why isn't One Piece in your Anime List? :D Seriously, it's the best anime in the world.

I tend to leave the best part of my meal to the end. That's the same with One Piece. Though I doubt Clannad series would give "the best" spot in my list.

RR: I think they haven't fixed the problems with the packages on the download page yet. I think they're finalizing everything. I downloaded the full install (.zip as the other two were corrupt for me) and installed on my localhost install to keep it up to date so I can test things.

I'm going to watch Clannad next. The ratings are through the roof. From the cover, i always thought it was just a Loli or Ecchi. The description indicates otherwise. But i doubt it will be better than One Piece, which just aired episode 501 last Sunday! :D I'm also up-to-date with its manga and there are at least 500 more episodes coming. It's a one hell of a ride!
