The idea is that they will have shorter releases.

I'd be utterly amazed if they aren't shorter, but shorter is a relative term when there was over a year and a half between beta 3 and RC1.

We can't promise any timeframes but you can replace "shorter" with "short" in that phrase, if you're going to analyze it that way.

Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

I understand :)

I hope the finale won't last too long

Update:

A significant bug has been found in RC1 that prevents alerts and notification messages from being sent. A fix for this has already been included in the code on GitHub and will be available in RC2.

In the meantime, users of RC1 can fix this issue themselves by manually editing cron.php, which is located in the root folder of your forum (i.e., the same folder as index.php and SSI.php).

In cron.php, find these two lines of code (they are near the start of the file):

Code: (Find) [Select]
define('SMF', 'BACKGROUND');
define('FROM_CLI', empty($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD']));

Now replace them with the following:

Code: (Replace) [Select]
define('SMF', 'BACKGROUND');
define('SMF_VERSION', '2.1 RC1');
define('SMF_FULL_VERSION', 'SMF ' . SMF_VERSION);
define('SMF_SOFTWARE_YEAR', '2019');
define('FROM_CLI', empty($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD']));
I promise you nothing.

It'd be a good idea to whip up a patch for that. Back when SMF 2.0 RC2 came out there was a bug in the theme footer. Again, something that was easily fixed with a manual edit, but even easier (for average admins) to fix with a patch. So I whipped up the Phooter Phix patch and made it available for anyone who wanted it.

Fair enough. And since this thread is not for support ;) can anyone point me to instructions for updating between RC versions please.

Since this thread is not for support, I won't tell you that it's the standard "large upgrade" procedure. In other words, I won't tell you that RC2 will include a complete set of files to overwrite all RC1 files. Nor will I even think of mentioning that RC2 will also include an upgrade.php, which you run through your browser via the usual url. :)

You do know what 'RC' means, right?

Bit late to the party but just FYI; Yes I do and I haven't implemented after looking into the existing issues on Git and also the fact that (at the minute) too many people use Tapatalk for me to switch over to 2.1 (I know....I know...don't...).

Once the number of issues calms down and we're in RC2, I'll reconsider.

I ran the latest nightly builds locally for a while and it's been pretty stable with the exception of some small issues, which made me (just like yourselves) consider RC1 appropriate for Production use...with caveats.

It's worth noting though, for others, that there should be a difference between actually implementing it and considering it for implementation.
It being RC1 means you can CONSIDER it for implementation in live. It doesn't mean you should and it's guaranteed to be safe and suitable for you.
RC1 isn't "all systems go".

Good, you’re the kind of person who understands. Just a “I’ll implement on my site” type comment sounded to me a bit like “it’s stable, full steam ahead” as we’ve already seen. There are people who think RC means “not beta” and don’t treat it as an RC should.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

May I suggest that, in the 2.1 support forum, a thread be created with specific instructions on updated from Rc toi RC versions and then from RC to final.
(as these come out).  I'm sure that'd be handy and would be a point of reference to people who would be les likely to clutter up this thread with the same repeated questions.  Or at least, respondents could simply provide a link... :)

Upgrades between RC releases is no different then it is to get you to RC1 to begin with, there's no need for any documentation on that.

The upgrader is designed to upgrade from ANY previous version including YaBS SE 1.5.5, betas and RC releases to the version you downloaded, and has been since the very beginning of SMF.

Github packages don't count, only officially released ones on SM.org.
