Congratulations on getting to beta.

I know this is not something you probably have an answer, but how much time is expected to take to get to release version?

I was going to start making a modification do my 2.0.9 instalation to integrate it with my website, that will probably screw up any further updates. However, some of the new features (notifications!) where thing I was going to try to implement, and now I will probably wait for 2.1 release before starting anything.  :)

As long as it takes, as always.

"Password hashing has been improved from sha1 to bcrypt."

Makes easier or harder to get bridges working "again"?

Arantor

That depends on how your bridge worked.

If the bridge did the smart thing and used integration hooks, or relied on SMF doing the session handling by way of something like SSI, odds are you probably don't need to do anything.

If you manually checked passwords, or futzed with sessions manually, you will have to probably rewrite large chunks of it.

As Arantor said, depends on what the bridges do. It's not a whole lot different from the way passwords worked previously except we're now using a different algorithm. So in case the bridge was manually hashing the password, it'd need to update the algorithm it uses to bcrypt.

Arantor

The hooks did allow for allowing for bridged apps to worry about this stuff; if verify_user got used, it would defer all sense of auth to the bridged app meaning that this stuff would not be something to worry about, for example.

Been a while, how's it going?
Indeed, it has. Things are extremely busy with finals coming up, but good overall I'd say. For you?

It's been an interesting couple of years - but it really is good to see SMF 2.1 coming along nicely :)

Heck, I'm even doing a paid mod at the moment :o (a paid gallery mod, currently working on the Aeva importer which is scary)

I agree--it really is. It'd be nice if my schedule cleared up enough to where I could get back involved with the community. Nice!

  • A bunch of other stuff!

            
    • Lots and lots of other internal and external improvements!

Thanks a lot for the great work (the new version seems awsome, can't wait to see it out of Beta status)! If I may ask, will there be anything like this?

Most probably not, we want to avoid adding anything majorly new at this point. But try requesting it in Feature requests and see how it goes.
