Nice to know it got done.

QuoteThat has prompted me to dig through your old posts and I found [2.0.11] Guest shown reply button but on click denied (login required) - seems to be what you're talking about and has been addressed in SMF 2.1

I would also consider looking at  how the calendar post checks permissions - not shown the same from calendar posting or board posting. In our case posting from calendar does not show the allowed permission to announce topic to forum members. The other way, posting from the board does not show the calendar post settings. Extremely annoying as users do just one and do not edit again to do the other (only way options show). Arantor did suggest it could be done with javascript when a board was selected from the calendar.

With all the trouble I had with the calendar it wasn't worth it as an events calendar. I would agree with a lot of people here who wanted to untangle it from-the software and take it out.

That stuff has all been reviewed and overhauled in 2.1.

Well, in that case I might be migrating back after it is released. If there is an updated convertor.  :)

Dear Users,

Simple Machines is proud to announce the release of the 3rd Beta of SMF 2.1. This version contains many improvements over Beta 2 and also fixes many bugs that were discovered following its release.

Among the notable improvements:


       
  • Added reCAPTCHA as core feature to keep spammers away.
  • Upgrade.php code clean-up. Now the upgrade process should be more consistent.
  • RSS general improvements.
  • Added support for jQuery 3.x.
  • Modified Curve2 to improve the responsiveness of the design.
  • General bug fixes, code improvements, and clean-up.
  • Default codification will now be UTF-8.

For full details of what has changed, please see


The general installation/upgrade procedure of this Beta release remains the same, however, once you upgrade from an older version to 2.1 you cannot go back, so please take careful consideration before upgrading any live site. Have a look at Installing and Upgrading SMF in the Online Manual to find out more. You cannot upgrade to 2.1 Beta 3 via the package manager; instead you will need to carry out the Large Upgrade process. SMF 2.1 can be obtained from the download section.

Please note that because this is a beta release, translations and language strings other than English have not been finalized and may not yet be complete.

Finally, as always, this topic is not for support. Discussion and support for 2.1 can be found in the

Finally, thanks to all of the team and development contributors[/url] who have brought us one step closer to a release candidate. On behalf of the project, we appreciate the time, energy and contributions you have made.

Thank you for using SMF

Kind regards,
Simple Machines Forum Team

Ok, So I'm really confused.  Did someone not update the forum Clock since 2017?  The Description at the top layer say's this is a 2019 post but the followups show a 2017 date?? Sup?

This topic started in 2017 and over the previous 15pages has kept rumbling.

That doesn't mean it's ready, it means the issues deemed so far for RC1 are done. It'll be out when it's out.

Arantor

You mean to spend adequate time testing to avoid putting out buggy releases?

If that is what you want to call it,  sure.

I just hope that by the time it's released,  it's not already outdated and surpassed by the latest and greatest... ala Duke Nukem Forever.

Arantor

That is what's going on, and there's been a few nasty bugs found in the build that would be horrible if released in an RC.

At least we don't have to worry about game loops and memory pointers.  :D

I wish those clowns behind Wolfenstein: The New Colossus had done that...


But I digress.  :)

As much as I like videogame references (;)) and stable software one must admit that it's worrisome to consider how many years have passed since 2.0 final was released. (Although I do remember it like it was yesterday.)

Kindred

Why is is worrisome?

We have a VOLUNTEER staff.
"Real Life"TM ALWAYS comes first.

You can track the general progress on GitHub... and note that things HAVE BEEN progressing.

So, Instead of complaining how long it takes (which is actually counterproductive as it disheartens the people who are volunteering their own personal time to make and support SMF), you have a few choices:
- go to a paid software with a full-time, paid staff. They are likely to have more frequent releases.
- suggest that we release out software with major known issues (NOT GOING TO EVER HAPPEN)
- participate in the process. Download the daily build, install it, use the upgrader, find and report issues on GitHub.
- participate in the process. Look at the GitHub list. Develop code to address items on that list. Submit the code to GitHub.

Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.
