Eh, why not run it yourself on a localhost installation?

I can. But it will be a feature addition to AAF.

Why? On the contrary I think it could be a bad thing if there's a security vulnerability in it. By the same token I wouldn't encourage running SMF 2.1 yet on a public webserver unless it's properly isolated away from anything else.

Yeah I'm not to big on running demo sites. I essentially forget they are there, they never get updated and BOOM POW, my sites are hacked lol

I don't like mybb enough to even play around with 1.8 yet. I will wait to see it in action and go from there.

I was just bored and curious, from what I see it's not that big of a change from 1.6 at least looks wise.

I have one mybb forum, took awhile to grasp it..mybb support sucks to no end, takes forever to get an answer. So I go to the off sites for support..

Seriously thinking of changing it over to SMF..

Just did a 2.0.8 update for my other board..

I think Ronald meant 2.0.7, and 2.1 is at best slow in production. I wish it would go faster and really it should to help SMF stay above the competition.

Ah ok, I am working on opening a forum using SMF and it's 2.07 that I just installed the other day. So I ran to the site to see if there was an update. Easier to update with nothing in forum.

I wish they gave some info about SMF 2.1, the new UI is great, bit soothing to browse through. But
https://github.com/SimpleMachines/SMF2.1
seems pretty dead.
Pretty dead? There are changes every couple of days actually merged in. Not to mention the discussions actively going on in the forum. 2.1 is far from dead, but I see no evidence it's going to be rainbows and unicorns either.

Have you seen MyBB's anti-spam features? CAPTCHA and Akismet as a plugin :p
Install Akismet and chance are it'll block your IP address you'll be locked out..

If you don't have the update, I can send it to you.

Here it is..
