    Nice changes but SMF 2.0 still does not use a responsive theme out the box. You'd think they would have focused on making the theme responsive in future releases like this because it's currently the 'stable version' for using and a big let down really for anyone who might be thinking of using it.
    And have noticed some forks of this same SMF version, such as ElkArte. That has a responsive default theme.

    Yes that is planned for SMF 2.1. They did post an addon for the default theme that makes it more responsive.
    ElkArte I like as well but too hard to get a bigger share of the marketplace.

    Well Curve2 (SMF 2.1's default theme) is already responsive :p. Till that time you can use this.

    Pretty obvious question then. Why not swap out the non responsive theme with SMF 2.0.14 for the responsive one? :confused:

    Wouldn't it make sense to do that? I'm aware SMF 2.1 comes with a responsive theme, I've tested it installed 2 times at least. But SMF 2.1 is still Beta, it has been for years... still looks at least a year away from going gold (and that's being nice about it, been at Beta 2 for over 2 years now). SMF 2.0 is the stable version people should be using right now first, but that isn't responsive out the box when it should be.

    Also, that theme says this: Compatible With: 2.0.9, 2.0.10, 2.0.11 (SMF 2.0.14 is out now) not listed as supported by it.

    You mean, add the mod into a patch and serve Curve as "responsive" ? I hardly think they will do it. If you want an official answer to that ask at forums (SMorg). I'm no longer a teamie. If you are saying swap Curve with Curve2, that's another story to chase.

    Actually ElkArte was forked from an "early" (actually old would be more accurate :p) development version of 2.1 about...3 years ago? (Heck I forgot how much time passed since *that day* LOL) and not from 2.0.

    Edit: no, it was 5 years ago! :eek:

    So ElkArte 1 (stable version) was a fork of an early SMF 2.1 version before they added in "front-end notifications" with it. Because both next development versions of SMF 2.1 and ElkArte uses front-end notifications that SMF 2.0 and ElkArte 1 doesn't have.

    Good luck with that. I hardly think anyone can do that in the team (time wise).

    I'm not sure when Elkarte added responsiveness to their theme, I added it to SMF 2.1 3 years ago. By the time Elkarte created some of those features wasn't even on the table. I think its safe to say, SMF's development past 6-7 years (this is the time i think SMF 2.1 had since the very first code written for 2.1), it pretty much covered two release worth features/enhancement. That is why Elkarte 1.1 looking more like SMF 2.1 (Nightly).

    ElkArte started as fork of SMF 2.1 in late 2012, responsiveness was experimentally added in mid 2013.
    "Desktop" notifications were first added to Elk in mid 2015 (and to be honest I should update them because still relying on an old implementation), not sure when were added to SMF.

    /me starts thinking at how many times he pushed to begin the release-freezing during 2012, and how many times he requested to have 2.1 live at sm.org and how his ideas were dropped the moment someone else re-joined the team (not you Antes, just to be clear) and argued release 2.1 as it was at the time was not up to the users' expectations and more features were required
    And here we are.

    been there done that. (btw I never re-joined the team :p). I argued with the team related to going 2.2 actually... Turns out that's an insult to some people's ancestors. We can literally talk about SMF's management whole day/week the end point is I agree with you and current management not improving the software's popularity yet they refuse to accept it.
