In order to help focus development with the next generation of technologies and the best way to help evolve forum software, the SMF team would like to announce that we will be ending all support for our SMF 1.0 series software as of December 31, 2012. SMF 1.0 was released to the world in December 2004 and has been supported for more than eight years.

Anyone still using a 1.0 release should investigate migrating to SMF 1.1 or SMF 2.0, which will continue to receive support for the forseeable future. We highly recommend a migration to our 2.0 series as updates for the 1.1 series is limited to security updates only.

These days, the SMF 1.0.x line is very outdated, even though it still receives security patches. Hardly any sites still use it, and we rarely if ever receive support requests for it. Since it is almost completely irrelevant to SMF users these days, we have decided to recognize that it has reached the end of its working life, and put our effort towards other things that are more useful to our users.

Please note:
We will continue to support the SMF 1.1.x and SMF 2.0.x lines for as long as there is a significant need for them in the community.

Time to upgrade! I've been upgrading client sites and haven't done my own, looks like this is the message to get started!

Wise plan, N. N. Onward and Upward into the future of SMF and it's heirs.

Thanks to all who worked with SMF 1.0 and in so doing led us to SMS 1.1 and SMF 2.0.

Good Work, Team!

I started SMF with 1.01 about 7 years ago after testing several forum software.

SMF was releasing security fix patches for 1.0 until recently. This shows the respect for users and their choices.

BTW how about a Timeline page showing the history of SMF versions?

You are now confusing 1.0 and 1.1.

We are continuing to support 1.1.

Yes, I'm no fun, isn't it? ;D

But hey, look at it the other way around: after 21st it won't matter anyway!

You mean, including patches? Theoretically all information that such pages would contain exists publicly already... but they're not systematized this way. We could do that, if it's useful - and it probably is. Our archives are quite messy otherwise. It's good you can filter them, for the rest, there's nothing clear about the SMF releases in there, when and what type of release that was.

Maybe a SMF versions Timeline is something for the Docs Team. I don't believe is something that is needed but something that would be good to have. It needs quite some search to be made, after that maintaining would be easy.

We've tried to get our history together in the past, but I don't recall it ever going anywhere. Every once in a while, a team member steps up to do it, then gets caught up in other things :P

I'm still using SMF 1.1.x across more than a dozen live forums and it's working very well, and with all the custom paid modifications that i have invested into it, which are unfortunately not compatible with SMF 2.0, i don't see myself upgrading to 2.0 any time soon. So, thanks a lot to SMF for keeping up the updates for 1.1.x. Actually, on my daily cyber trekking, i've seen more 1.1.x forums than 2.0.x but maybe it's just me.

Suki

Just to clarify, the end of life is for SMF 1.0, not 1.1.x.

1.1.x will still receive support.

@Suki - Sharks understood that, which is why he said thanks for keeping it supported :)

Suki

I know, it wasn't directed to him, just a general reminder, that's all.
