When it’s done, same as ever.

Will this 'new' version have a mobile friendly theme as default?

Yes, it comes with a responsive theme as the default theme.

I know we can't ask on time frames but how is this going because I've just noticed beta 3 is from 2017

"Before you allow people access to your forum, especially in an administrative position, you must be aware that that person can seriously damage your forum.
 Therefore, you should only allow people that you trust, implicitly, to have such access." -Douglas

Then it needs a secondary feature, to track the estimated date and bump it by a week every time someone asks, or if they complain about it taking too long.

I only hope that when SMF 2.1 be released, it will not be much outdated or big step backwards compared to other forum scripts  :-X  SMF is a amazing and solid software but needs a little speed up in developing  ;)

If I were to point out that XenForo 2.1 is shipping native desktop/mobile push notifications (except iPhone/iPad) without needing an app, and that when XF first started out, SMF 2.0 was still trying to make Curve 1... I'll let you be the judge of 'compared to other forum scripts'.

meanwhile, *rubs out previous release date, adds another month*

I've been thinking the very same thing and I still remember the team saying this release wouldn't take as long as the last, I forget how many years ago that was now

2.0 released in 2011.

*rubs out the 2.1 release date in the secret board, adds another week to the date*

We don't have enough developers to move it along faster, plain and simple. Maybe the situation was different back then (I wasn't around for that)

Maybe if more people tried to help instead of just complaining it would be already finished. Remember this is an open source project and no one is paid to work on it.

Personally as a viewer of GH on a daily basis, I think the progress has been going very good recently.
