SMF 2.0 RC3 released
« on: March 10, 2010, 05:41 AM »
SMF 2.0 release candidate 3 has been released. At this point I can't see that there's any huge need to upgrade as most of the new features are mostly cosmetic and it's a fairly large (& disruptive) job to do an upgrade.

However, if anyone feels that the following list is reason enough, then I'll do it :)

  • Better compatibility with RTL languages.
  • Added curvy headers to loads of tables throughout SMF for the best Curve experience.
  • Fine-tuned conversation view in the personal messages section.
  • Improved read tracking of topics; e.g. topics are now marked as read by pages, to allow easier resuming of reading.
  • Several tweaks to the WYSIWYG editor; now automatically disabled on mobile devices.
  • Post screens (new topic, etc) are center aligned again.
  • Buttons are now aligned much more consistently throughout SMF.
  • Row color alternation to most of the tables in the administrative areas.
  • Redesigned profile statistics centre.
  • Fixed install and upgrade script for PostgreSQL.
  • Updated help section.
  • Revamped SSI examples page.
  • Rephrasing of several error messages.
  • Improvements to the package manager's archive extraction algorithm.
  • Toggling of full size versions of resized images.
  • Altered styling for quotes and code blocks.

Does the newest release cure the bugs with cutting-and-pasting info in the current release?  I've had to do tedious work to reformat my posts so that they look correct.  Also the current release has display bugs in the posting box.  In the previous releases, I had no such problems.

Not sure - guess I can upgrade it on my test box & see what happens!
