I plan to attempt to upgrade our (now very out of date) copy of the Simple Machines Forum to the version 2.1, currently a release candidate but as best we can tell stable enough to use for real.

This will start this coming Friday morning (10 April), and should take an hour or two; the forums will be unavailable whilst the upgrade takes place. If there are delays, I'll post updates on our Facebook page.

There will undoubtedly be things broken and not quite right; I'm on enforced holiday this week and next so I should have plenty of time to fix them. Roll Eyes Cheesy

One thing I know is that by default, email notifications will be turned off by the upgrade. After the upgrade, it's easy to re-enable these on the Notifications page of your profile.

If you want a preview of the new software, please visit the QA site. Note that anything posted there will be lost during the upgrade, so if you spot a problem, please report it here on the live site instead.

Thanks,
Gizmo

Just a reminder that this is happening tomorrow (Good Friday) morning. Hopefully everything will be back up and running by midday UK time.

After fighting it for five hours, I've had to abandon the upgrade for now and roll back to SMF 1.

Details later when I've had a good scream.
