Modification and theme authors are encouraged to check the roadmap for our upcoming development milestones when deciding how to update their modifications and themes for SMF 2.1.
So next version is going to be RC3, not final?

Nice to see the progress on Github towards RC3 :)

Unfortunately the visible progress stopped few months ago. I'm looking forward to RC3 to install it on the prod env. and start fixing translation mistakes, but... :(

That's only because temporarily 2.0 got priority for "reasons".

The reason being that 7.2 is going away and some compatibility patches are being worked on, along with a permanent fix for the infamous 2.0.14 login error, and some GDPR features. This, fairly obviously, needed priority for production systems over pre-production (RCs are not generally suggested for production unless you can patch/maintain it yourself)

Alright. And true: Almost 7 months have now passed since RC2 had been released.
Nothing ever since. Even the last 2.0 release (SMF 2.0.15) turns 2 years old soon.

What is taking so long or what slows down progress so immensely. Is that public, so we could discuss or help to bring things forward?
At least these 16 (getting more???)steps must be completed for SMF2.1 Final.
Last Full Version: 2.0 Final released more than 10 years ago on 20110604

At least this needs to be done for SMF2.1 RC3.

That and the fact that 2.0.16 is in extensive testing where it adds a significant change for GDPR.

What is GDPR?

It's a European Union law dealing with privacy and personal data.

Ok, that's what I thought but I wasn't sure. ;-)


I imagine that this explains why there has been no change in the milestone on 2.1 RC3 for the last 3 weeks.

Yes.
