You know guys, it's amazing :whistle:
I have learned more here about the reason why we are waiting than I ever did on SMF.org just cannot understand why it has to be such a big secret there?

Well, there is a certain value to privacy, which the team understands - by cloaking it, they make themselves look less incompetent than I think others would argue they are.

There is also a value of honesty with your community, as I think people are beginning to realise: the more people are brushed off, the more people are going to just shrug and move on, on the logic that if no-one wants to admit there's a problem, there MUST be a problem.

I'm curious to see if/when 2.0 makes it out, and what will happen after since I've already told Kindred that I suspect a lot of people will be disappointed with 2.0 final, and why, and the only way to fix that is a 2.1 that adds things people really want - and I just can't see that happening.

It should be pointed out that the latest news is that everyone on the smf team has now signed the document, so they could potentially release tomorrow if they wanted. We are ready... To wait more ;)

Well, I don't know how much time is involved finalising it now everyone's signed it but I would tend to agree that the release timeframe is no longer held up by legalities, primarily. Now it's a case of resolving - or 'accepting' - the bugs in 2.0 and fixing them.

I would expect a few more weeks minimum.

Wait what? I don't see any news or announcement regarding this...  :-/

It feels like SMF2's development was started only days ago, just the same...

2000 days, that is. ::)

2000 days is almost spot on, actually - 5.4 years since the founding of 2.0 in their SVN would be any day now ;)
