ahhhhhh, then I Guess there's no harm in leaving our forum the way it is.

Now, if only it were easy to figure out how to implement our SSL that we bought last year but never installed.

you could open a topic in the correct support board to get assistance with that.

Is there a list or description somewhere of what features will be standard on 2.1 that 2.0 needed mods for? For instance, I know partial quotes are now possible in 2.1, which means I won't need that plugin in anymore. I'm just guessing (hoping?) there will be more.

Drafts, responsive theme, mentions, alerts.

OK thanks, then there are a couple more plugins I don't need. I like to keep things simple. I'm going to be doing a test upgrade on a copy of my site soon and will be able to take it for a spin. Hopefully it will fix my mysteriously broken Attachments links too, we'll see.

In addition to GDPR, will this new 2.0.16 update also address the new California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) that takes in effect on January 1st, 2020?

this thread is the announcement for 2.1 RC2, not discussion of 2.0.16
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

If the provisions are broadly in line with GDPR, yes. If not, no.

this thread is the announcement for 2.1 RC2, not discussion of 2.0.16

To be fair though, 2.0.16 hasn't been officially announced yet (it seems new releases are only announced once they are released, not when they're planned), and there is no discussion thread for it yet (except maybe the thread about the EOL of PHP 7.1).

Yes, I unofficially mentioned it before SMF started to bleed loyal users.

Update: I ran a test update on a copy of my forum and it went through with no problem. I had disabled all plugins except for the 2.0.x patches (15, 14, 13, 12). The best part is that it fixed a problem I've been having with bad links for attachments (images, .docx) added prior to 07/16/18. The personal avatars were not fixed, but they're not as big of a deal.

At the moment everything looks great, but if I encounter any problems, I'll put them up here. I realize I shouldn't us RC2 on a production site, but it sure is tempting.
