2.0 Update Part 3

I figured I'd let you all in on where we stand with 2.0.  We are itching to get the charter beta released and only a few bugs stand in our way.

There are a group of bugs related to the upgrader which was redone for 2.0.  Releasing 2.0 with a broken upgrader just isn't a good idea.  Once those bugs are cleared up we will be in a much better position to release 2.0 beta.

I haven't crunched the numbers but our the past few weeks we've dropped our total number of bugs (some of which don't affect 2.0) from 150 to under 120.  Considering that we've had new reports coming in during the same time frame I think we are doing good.

Now while 120 bugs sound like a lot, it isn't as bad as it seems.  A bug can actually be a feature request, a typo in a comment, a forum halting error, and everything in-between.  I went through the bugs marked for 2.0 last night and the majority where minor issues that shouldn't delay anthing.

Thanks all for you patience.

Just so I understand this:

  • You're eager to get the charter beta released.
  • Once those bugs are cleared up, you can release it.
  • There are fewer bugs than there were.
  • Most of the bugs shouldn't delay anything
Well, that certainly clears it up for me.  :P

Part 3?  Just so I'm correct, the past two updates by Grudge were "Part 1" and "Part 2", right? :-P

Sounds like some good news and progress to the development team. All I have to do now is wait for the download to go online to the public :P

SMF slays phpbb, puts it in an IPB coffin, and buries them both with the ashes of vBulletin.

Not going to commit to any time frame.

There's a 47% chance it will be released before an infinite number of years have passed.

Same here, those are some pretty nice odds, but I'd have to say that would be a 99.9% chance of being released when an infinite number of years have passed :P

It's done when it's done. This is great news. I can tell it will be soon though. I hope the team is satisfied with SMF2.0 because what a great software it is. ;)

Also your not a charter member so you may be seeing it several months after charter members. You might want to consider it if you want it earlier than others. :)

I believe that this site is a demo site of SMF 2.0, though a demo panel like vBulletin and Invision Power Services has would be a nice thing to put up for people to look through before they download SMF :)
