yes xenforo seems like the next one to move to, my smf board is nothing but tons of mods attempting to get what is just another boards freaking defaults.

This is often the very base of ones problems. I have been using SMF since it's birth and have been a theme designer for at least 10 tears. One thing that I have noticed is that a vast majority of forum owners spend a vast majority of their time working on cosmetics and installing unneeded mods and minimal time actually operating a successful forum.

Five Steps to a Successful SMF forum:

1. Install SMF
2. Choose a theme.
3. Design a logo, change a few colors.
4. Stop trying to be the big shot with an over abundance of unnecessary mods.
5. Actually admin your forum.

Sorry, I'll get back on topic now.  ;)
No, I will not offer free downloads to Premium DzinerStuido themes. Please stop asking.

At the beginning (first two years), I installed countless mods that did the most basic things, because I didn't know how to code, and I didn't know which files to edit. Now that I have this knowledge, I've come to realize that half, if not more, of the mods I installed in the past were useless, and I've been correcting ny mistakes ever since. 2.1 is a solid piece of software, and this comes after using it for a solid hour - great new features and great design. SMF, as the name implies, is a simple platform. If you want a bloated platform, then install all those mods or purchase a forum software that incorporates everything (I don't think they exist either, given that Xenforo also has plenty of mods that can be installed).

It is still in alpha but has been available the entire time on Github for you to experiment with.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

*shrug* It'll be finished when it's finished. Yes, there are things still to do, again this is all on Github.

Every repository on Github has a list of issues.

-sigh- No, it is not the list of what's recently changed. The open issue list IS the list of what is known bugs/to do.

Since this appears to be too complicated to understand, https://github.com/SimpleMachines/SMF2.1/issues is the list of what is to be done. However you should wait until 2.1 is out because this is clearly not suitable for you.

On github is information that SMF 2.1 is in BETA 1 stage, but I've question, why you don't released official information about that this version is available? Why you don't informing people of progress of works?

exactly --- it is being PREPPED for beta, which means we have changed the version strings... but it has not yet been officially released as Beta 1 because we are closing the last few issues we have targeted for the release and preparing the code for actual release.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

Quick query - will there be an upgrade path from SMF 2.0.9 to SMF 2.1 upon it's release?
