yeh and that was a bad idea, this is not a stable release, this is not even stable enough for beta, putting this onto a live forum is opening yourself up to every bug and any security issues that 2.1 has.  Also there have been numerous changes since the alpha that has been posted and what is now included.

As long as nobody is using the site, it's ok to have it just to see what 2.1 is going to be like. It's a very bad idea to actually try and run a forum on it at the moment.

Ive had no issues with it, but ive had spammers try to register (the register but never log on kind).

It will be awesome when released.

I'd suggest disabling registration.

The most important thing to know is that I (may be others could) will not support any upgrade from alpha to beta. O:)

That said there are already at least two or three "live" sites with 2.1 installed for testing (see this topic), so as long as you know what you are doing it's fine. ;)


Take a peek at what I'm doing! ;D

Oh definitely on the upgrade stuff. I very much doubt that anyone will be prepared to provide any support whatsoever for upgrading an alpha site to beta. In fact, last I checked the upgrade script wouldn't even upgrade earlier alpha to current alpha. Alpha haz bugz. That's what alpha is for. :)

Well I don't mind testing the thing. I'm just not much help with debugging it. Make it all CSS and I'll fix it. :P

Are you saying that we can view the live sites and they will have the latest fixes on them?  Cause, honestly, I'm sure you guys have done some work to 2.1 since I last saw it...  But contributing to an ever changing forum software could be tricky if that feature has been added, or something has been changed that I'm unaware of.  Will these test sites be up-to-date with the latest features/changes to SMF 2.1 Alpha?  If so, where are these test sites?  Perhaps I've missed it somewhere??

That's up to their own owners of course.

I know SleePy set up a cronjob to synchronize his (live-but-not-public) test site.
Kindred updated his last night (or the day before).
I don't know all the others.

If you only tested the alpha you have missed many fixes for sure.
If you downloaded the tarball of the release-2.1 branch in the last week then you have tested everything, but not a couple or two features that will (hopefully) go into 2.1 as soon as they are ready. ;)

Sorry if I missed out on the discussion, but is there a way to update the 2.1 with the latest fixes? I have the first 2.1 alpha release!

overwrite/reinstall


this is why it is ALPHA. There is no upgrade functionality between alpha versions (or even alpha to beta -- and probably nor form beta to RC either)
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

No plans on release another alpha. The next one should be the beta (when is ready :P).

More topics will come.
I see is there any place that we can request features to be implemented into 2.1? Honestly, it seems the same besides fresher with the new theme.

There is the Feature Requests board. But at that point is unlikely new features will be added to 2.1. New features will anyway be considered for future versions.

It's not the same. If it was, there would be no point making it. What were you expecting?

There would be a point - it could have resolved some minor update like a bug update release a la vBulletin style.

Something more revolutionary, but that will come in 3.0.
