Just saw the progress meter on github. I am happy to see that RC3 is 95% complete with only 8 open issues left.  :D

I was also surprise to see a big drop on the number of issues opened for the final version. It went from something like 140 to only 81. It is now 57% complete. That is a huge increase.

Keep up the good work.  8)

Link? So there is one more RC before the final release? Would that mean another year of production? :) :( well... At least it is alive and moving forward ;)

I agree. It shouldn't be that far and hopefully sooner than later. ;-)

Yes!
I look into that list almost every day.
At least these 48 (getting more???)steps must be completed for SMF2.1 Final.

Is the remaining issue for RC3 a minor or a major one?

If you click on "RC3" in the above link posted by vbgamer, it will bring you here, and you can judge for yourself.

That doesn't tell me if it's a minor or major issue ;)

Well it does tell you that the issue was created in oct 2018, that's 18 months ago, and that there has been 80 messages. Hence, chances are that it is a problematic issue. ;-)

or it could just be one that's been considered to be lower priority and so not been worked on that much ;)

It's a volunteer project. If they were all getting paid and could focus on it exclusively, I'm sure there would be a lot more progress. I'm glad the developers have devoted as much of their free time to this as they have. That being said, it has undoubtedly taken an enormous amount of time. I can't imagine how many websites have stopped using SMF over the years due to this. I myself have been holding out for over a year and half (!!) for 2.1 since my 1.x forum has too much custom code to make it worth going to 2.0 just to have to change everything again for 2.1 soon after.

RC3 looks like it's going to be done very soon, and while it's still not the final version, it's probably mature enough to start planning around. It's what I intend on doing. If you're tech savvy or have someone on hand who is, you can probably manage the minor issues until the final version is ready.

If I can write. I have already written.
how should we not complain.
6 years past yet unfinished

So what?  Development is ongoing - and none of us get paid.


Stop whining.

well said sir. I just do not understand some people. They complain when they have to pay for a forum, and yet they complain too, when they get something amazing like Smf for free.
