    Trying to get more users by using the same current release versioning and similar lettering as the latest version of XF I see.

    New admin: "What forum should I use guys?"

    Someone offering advice: "XF 2.1 is great, you should try that!"

    New Admin: *Accidentally finds SMF 2.1 when googling and installs it instead*

    SMF Devs: Mwahaha, our plan to get more users is working!

    SMF 2.1 started development so long ago they could probably claim copyright on those numbers :eek::D

    Ahh, so it's the other way around! It all makes sense now as to why XF waited so long to release 2.1 then.

    No they are still on 2.0.x

    Probably will update once final is released.

    I have updated a bunch of my addons for SMF to support SMF 2.1 RC1 already.

    I have test site on RC1 the issue with updating sites is I have to redo the template. That part always holds be back. I do more of the backend side of things then frontend design.

    I've finally got our (million post+) test site up and running with this release and my advice would be not to go live with it. While this advice might be obvious to some, I note this statement in the release notes:

    I disagree, based on what I've encountered so far SMF 2.1 RC1 is not reliable enough to be installed and used on any production websites and I'm sure we'll see further release candidates before a final 'gold' release.

    You can probably say the same thing to the millions of packages using semantic versioning...

    As an aside, I've had a look at a SMF 2.1 demo board and it seems like they replaced their 2005 style for a... 2009 one?

    That's a little harsh. What do you expect of 2019?

    That was kinda the joke


    Yeah, it does still look a bit dated. A bit extreme on the excessive border radius and gradient usage. Still, doesn't look awful. Colour scheme is nice, and it's still pleasant enough.

    Its 2019 and XF 2.1 is out, but i dont think any free forum software would get the same functions as paid scripts.

    I don't see how Xenforo 2.1 could potentially increase traffic more so than a forum built on SMF 2.1. In the end what matters is content, so I'll stick with SMF.
