SMF 2.1 RC3 Released
« on: October 15, 2020, 07:16:48 PM »
Simple Machines is pleased to announce the release of SMF 2.1 RC3. Bugs that were reported after the release of RC2 have been fixed and improvements have been made to security, stability, and performance. The many fixes and improvements include the following:


- Enhanced privacy policy support.
- Several important enhancements to PostgreSQL and MySQL.
- Multiple hooks added for handling data and/or presentation.
- Language files now uses sprintf() whenever possible.
- Theme enhancements/fixes.
- Improvements on Admin session checks.
- Enhancements on security: tokens, hashing cookies and better session handling.
- Multiple calendar fixes/enhancements.
- Better hashing system for the image proxy.
- Bug fixes for alert notifications.
- Added unsubscribe links for announcement emails.
- PHP 7.4 support.
- Several misc bug fixes/improvements.
- Download of posts/PMs/profile for GDPR.


This release is considered to be an RC (Release Candidate), which means that it is sufficiently functional, but that it has known and unknown bugs. These bugs do not necessarily prevent a release, rather they need to be addressed before the next dev cycle release.

SMF RC3 can be installed as a brand new installation, or an SMF 2.0.x installation can be upgraded to SMF RC3, however, please do note that there are no updates packages for any RC releases.

We highly encourage testing this version on local or development/QA environments. Testing the release will greatly help us in narrowing down, and focusing on, issues/improvements towards the Final release... However, we do not recommend using an RC package on any live installation and/or production forum due to the very nature of RC packages.


Finally, this announcement topic is not for support. Please use the SMF 2.1 support board instead.

A very special thanks goes to our code contributors, Teamies, and non-Teamies whose reports and pull requests have greatly helped us not only to reach our goals, but also to create/grow/improve our development cycle. 

Thank you for using SMF!

Kind regards,
Simple Machines

GREAT news, congrats and thank you! My forum shares hosting with a few Wordpress sites, and lately WP has been grumbling about the outdated PHP version that I've kept due to the SMF2.0.17 7.2 limitation. I may soon update to 2.1. My forum is small and very basic, so a hiccup here or there would not be a big problem for us.

That's true; but sometimes we just gamble and try. 2.1 offers some functions I really needed for my site, so I decided to move on to 2.1 RC2 soon after it was released. And I have been happily using 2.1 RC2 in my site ever since with just some minor glitches here and there. The benefits of 2.1, even in a RC state really counter-weighted those issues; , at least in me case, of course . My forum, by the way has almost 500K posts and over 55K users. As I said, hopefully I will find some time to update to RC3 along the weekend. Finger crossed!Bests,

I think that's fair, for people who don't understand how mods work in SMF (that they're developed indepentently, and that updating them can basically only start after the SMF release).

We're saying "Lookie here, you can upgrade!", but in reality, many people still have to wait for all their mods to be updated first. If that comes as a surprise, it'll obviously be a disappointment.

Since many SMF installations rely heavily on mods, we should maybe mention these "upgrade when using mods" basics in the release posts.

Only bug fixes and performance fixes (and the new privacy features) and I think a security fix, but no, nothing useful here. Obviously. Next you’ll be telling me there is no reason to upgrade to final when it comes out either.

If you use PHP 7.4.x, using RC3 will fix the error log spam. So far I'm actually seeing less issues with RC3 than I did with RC2, and the large upgrade package made it only take a matter of seconds to update it. (It was probably the quickest and easiest update I've ever done to a forum before).

Oh I seem to have misunderstood? Ok.

I was glad to see RC3 officially released because although I update every few months from GitHub & adjust a few of my my mods for changes, some my mod testers seem to only use what's released here. I suppose they see it as what most people will be using at the time.

Re: SMF 2.1 RC3 Released

Oh I seem to have misunderstood? Ok.

I was glad to see RC3 officially released because although I update every few months from GitHub & adjust a few of my my mods for changes, some my mod testers seem to only use what's released here. I suppose they see it as what most people will be using at the time.
The GitHub version is not necessarily one of these releases. It is code that is in active development. If you're worried about compatibility or issues, I would at least wait until new releases are tagged in the repository before upgrading.

Good news with the RC3 and thanks to all involved.

GREAT news, congrats and thank you! My forum shares hosting with a few Wordpress sites, and lately WP has been grumbling about the outdated PHP version that I've kept due to the SMF2.0.17 7.2 limitation. I may soon update to 2.1. My forum is small and very basic, so a hiccup here or there would not be a big problem for us.

Same for me, I decided to take the gamble of running RC 2 in a small live environment. Limited users and post, not many issues reported and will update to RC3 soon.

woo hoo ! Thanks all.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with questions on astrophysics or theology.  You will get better and faster responses by asking homeless people in the street. Thank you.

We can hear the voice of the narrator:


"Congratulations Level 3 is now complete. You may now proceed to level 4." :-)


Congratulations everyone.
Good luck with the next level.

Thank you to everyone involved. I updated my 15 year old live production site today, 2,984,771 Posts in 44,288 Topics - And only issues I've seen so far were fairly trivial (and reported as issues, so perhaps avoidable in the future).
No errors, no problems so far - If I do come up with something, I'll be reporting them. You can be sure of that. :)
