SMF 2.1
« on: August 11, 2018, 12:35:30 PM »
     Simple Machines Forum developers have been working on a major upgrade to the forum software. Regular members will notice some of these changes immediately once the software is upgraded.

     Among those items that have been removed are the "Move" , "glow" , and "shadow" editing features. Also the "Actors" and "Musicians" avatars have been removed (apparently due to licensing problems).

     Some of the other changes may be seen here:

SMF 2.1 Beta 1 Released
{Posted November 21, 2014}

A fresh, new, responsive design with Curve2
Notification Alerts
PM and Post drafts
Likes and Mentions
Built-in support for Gravatars
Users can select their timezones instead of manually selecting the time offsets.
SMF 2.1 has also dropped support for IE6 and IE7 but will continue to work with IE8+ (although IE10+ is really recommended) and browsers having similar/fuller standards compliance (any modern version of Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera etc will be fine).

     Personal note: I tested the Microsoft Edge browser some time ago. I recommend NOT using this browser to interact with SMF forums. You may be able to read posts, but replying to them could give you some problems.
