Simple Machines is proud to announce the release of SMF 2.0 RC2 Public. This is the long awaited second Release Candidate for 2.0 and is one of the last steps towards 2.0 going gold. Literally hundreds of bugs that were reported after the release of RC1 have been fixed and improvements have been made to security, stability, and performance. We recommend that all users of earlier development versions upgrade as soon as possible.

As promised, 2.0 RC2 boasts our new Curve theme, which has been made the new default theme. The previous default theme has been renamed Core. Please note that the Classic and Babylon themes have been removed from the package and are now only available on the theme site.

Major changes since the last public release:

       
  • Inclusion of the Curve theme.
  • Three brand-new smiley sets.
  • 960 new entries in the changelog, which consist of:

            
    • Fixes for a significant number of bugs reported by Beta Testers, Charter members, and community members.
    • Hundreds of queries optimized for faster performance (new indexes, re-written queries, changes to column type, etc)
    • Canonical link support for better search engine indexing
    • New feature: ability to have different readmes in packages for different languages
    • New feature: ability to delete languages (oops! we forgot that earlier)
    • Linktrees have been added to the lower-areas of the forum and to the admin, moderation and profile sections.
    • Lighttpd support for Queryless urls
    • Improved support for right to left languages
    • OpenID is fixed
    • Extra fields for Advanced Profile fields (surround/enclose within other text, and choose placement as icon or signature).
    • Several theme improvements for better semantics and standards support.
    • Moved more JS out of templates
    • Wireless links to switch back to normal mode.
Those interested in the detailed changelog may like to download it on our download page.

Finally - please do not use this topic for any support requests. You will get a much more prompt response by visiting the relevant support board!

Regards,

Simple Machines
