This SMF 2.1 Beta 3 is not working properly i used this one 1 week after that i uninstalled
Well, that's why it is called a beta. It would be helpful if you could detail what "wasn't working" in the bug reports or support section so it can be fixed.

Thats pretty vague though, hopefully you were not looking for some magic out of SMF .. :)
Still sad to know SMF didn't work out for you.

Congrats devs!

Can't wait for the RC/Final when it's ready!
How come it's called SMF 2.1 instead of SMF 3.0, if it's going to be so different from 2.0... ?

Because the plan was to release a small upgrade while 3.0 was being worked on. Then people added more and more and more, but I think calling it 3.0 would be a mistake.
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. It seems you have chosen which, and now I must do the same.

At least another year, possibly longer.

So are you saying that updating mods for this version can be a frivolous endeavor wrapped in an enigma of frustration?

Hopefully not. We are getting there, but yes mods shouldn’t be updated until a release candidate.

Not entirely. A lot of the mod related stuff in 2.1 was added because I updated my mods to work with 2.1. Whenever there was a feature one mod needed I added it, whenever a mod borked something in SMF I fixed it.

So if you are in a helping mood, you could update a mod and help us find errors, merely testing the code via using the mod related features would help us a lot.

Well then, I have no more patience. I'm waiting for so many years to get a modern smf (for example user mentions) and there are so many other things that are available in other forums. I will convert to another system now.

Even though you can have mentions as an add-on today, of course...

He thinks that by telling us he's going to switch, we will suddenly and miraculously discover that 2.1 is ready for release just to make him stay....

I've been waiting for world peace, since I was born still waiting. :-P
I like stability........... not instability. A hastened release would no doubt be less desirable, and then that what people
that wanted it now would complain about.   I work months before I even open up websites using this software,
would stand to reason real significant releases to update would take years. I am not a developer but had been in the past
and I always hated version updates that were fixes and people used full upgrade status not update status as they should
is pet peeve of mine. I was around when the first SMF betas were being tested and rightly so there were so many fixes, and even though one
could install it; it took a long time for solid release to happen. This is the want it now generation, having no idea that quality is worth the time.
My two cents.


Knowing your limitations makes you human, exceeding these limitations makes you worthy of being human.
