I wonder if that could be done with a mod?

Hint: write a mod to do it please !  :)

Possibly... but for the default theme only, the mod probably wouldn't work on other themes.

That's cool I only plan on using Curve2 anyway.

Here my german 2.1 Beta4 page. With custom page and own themes.
2.1 is on a very good way and the developers are doing a very good job  :)

That looks good mate.

A question - the background image with transparency etc. Is that a feature of 2.1 (or something also available in 2.0 that I've missed).

What have you changed in the theme itself? It doesn't look all that different to my 2.1beta3 as far as I can tell from memory :)
I only copied the default theme, pasted a background image and customized the css. The first and reference page is not a mod. I added it to the system. I don't like the portal system. Too much for me. Download and contact page are Mods from 2.0. These I adapted to the GDPR. Not a big action.

Will this version be fully compatible to PHP 7?

Yes, although the current version (2.0.15) is also ready to go with PHP 7. It’s just plugins that aren’t.

There is no official beta 4 release yet - but the code literally gets updated nearly every day so a 'beta 4 release' could be anything from a few months ago until today.

At the moment, beta 4 is a working title. Time will tell if it will be an rc or a beta.

I largely suspect the next release will actually be called RC1. Right now the code calls itself beta 4, however given how close the list of 'RC1 items' is, it's quite possible that beta 4 will be skipped and go straight to RC 1.

But why, though? What does it being called 'RC1' get you that it being called 'beta 4' doesn't? It's just a version number - until final happens, it doesn't *really* mean anything.

If anything, a repeat of 2.0 would be bad - 2.0 RC1 wasn't actually that great.

So what? If the next release were called beta 4, or it were called RC1, it's still an in-development project, simple as that.

Is my understanding correct that the real "difference" is  -

beta - lots of changes, regularly. Strongly recommended NOT to be used in production.
RC - theoretically stable for production use, but still in a work in progress.
Final - good to go, install away and enjoy !

RC basically means the product should be ready to use, and the devs believe it does not have any major issues anymore.
Ideally, RC and final would be nearly identical.

All I’ll say is look at what happened with 2.0.
