Does RC2 resolve the various issues with custom smileys that had been reported?
I am waiting until I'm told the smileys are working before I implement a bunch of custom ones on my forum.

What even determines a potential RC3 release? Is it dependent on the bugs that early adopters report?

They have a list of existing bugs that are tied to the milestone for RC3. If any new bugs are found (not that this is likely to happen, nosirree) then someone would have to decide whether to tie them to the RC3 milestone or leave them for Final. Presumably that decision would be made on the basis of such technical considerations as "How much poo are we likely to be in if we put this one off until Final?" and "How much poo are we likely to be in if we attempt to deal with this one for RC3?".

I'm sure there will be plenty to go round. :D

See for yourself. :)

Go to the GitHub repository, click on the Issues tab, and search for "is:issue label:Smileys" in the Filters field. That'll show you the current status of all issues (both open and closed) related to smileys. If you want to see the status of pull requests related to smileys as well, drop the "is:issue" part from your filters.
I promise you nothing.

OMG!
I've been out for a long time and I see now there are two RC versions in a short period of time. Thanks so much to all the team who made it possible!!

I'll install it right now on a test site to report any possible issues and will evaluate the possibility to use it on a production site.

GitHub scares me, or rather intimidates me. I have totally no idea how it works, I appreciate your guidance but I'm wondering if there's a simple answer to this specific question:

"If I install a custom smiley set on my 2.1 RC2 forum, will that continue to work as upgrades occur?"

Another way to phrase this would be "Is it safe to install a custom smiley set without the likelihood of losing it subsequently?"

Maybe... maybe even probably

But rc does mean that there may still be changes,  if deemed necessary.

However... I will point out once again that this thread is not for support.

Now that's a lot of poo ;D.

GitHub scares me, or rather intimidates me. I have totally no idea how it works, I appreciate your guidance...

It was kind of intimidating for me too, but actually, there's really nothing to it :). If you register a new account, all sorts of popups will start to appear that kind of guide you through the site :) and on top of that, if you ever find yourself in a pickle, you can always Google your way out ;).

Regarding reporting bugs, it works pretty much like a regular forum. You open a new "topic" and then the devs take a look at your "post" and try to replicate the bug you reported. If they can replicate it, the bug is confirmed. If not, in most cases, the bug report is dropped, but this also depends on the seriousness of the issue and if multiple users reported the same thing, but, for some reason, the devs can't replicate the behavior, etc., etc. So, in some cases, even though bugs can't be replicated, they're not marked as "bogus" bug reports, they're just kinda left for further analysis ;).

Besides, you'll ease the developers jobs if you report bugs directly on GitHub. It's designed to work with code, so it's easier to see which bugs and/or feature requests have been fixed, implemented, rejected, etc. ;).

Kindred: Wasn't so much support as a Q as to whether RC2 handled something correctly. All good mate.

Gigawatt:  Thanks, and to take the convo out of this thread, maybe you could write a "beginners guide to GitHub" thread that way more people might see this advice / info :)

Actually, I'm a beginner myself, still don't have everything figured out, but someone with a bit more experience using GitHub could probably write a tutorial... at least how to report bugs.

Hmmm... if it was for bug reports only, I guess I could make a small tutorial :)... if there's interest on the forum about it :).

No. There will be an RC3, but that should be the last RC.

Thanks for this! I am planning to move curefans.com (85K topics and 5K members) to this very soon. Is there a large forum where I can see 2.1 RC2 implemented? Thank you!

That depends on what you consider "large". Mine has almost 55k users and 450k posts.
