Important

  1. This release is for testing purposes, not production use.
  2. Get your testing in ASAP - I don't plan a second RC unless there is significant trouble with this one.
  3. Open bugs against the beta on GitHub by prefixing the title with: [2.1]
  4. Upgrading from the 2.0 branch involves an extra step. Instructions in the 2.1 beta 3 discussion

    Is http://vanillaforums.org/discussions/unread

    meaning "unread discussions listing".

    supported in 2.1 rc1

    • if so it has a bug with permissions and custom categories permissions that have discussions that should be unviewable by member role. The Titles of "unviewable" discussions is not filtered out. This may have been filed before, I couldn't find it and si I posted a new issue on github.

    the other question - does the "unread" option in menu put more stress on server and slow down performance, does it scale well with servers with lots of simulteaneous users using this option.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    Nice, it is getting closer to a release! Thanks for the effort!

  • LincLinc Director of Development Detroit Vanilla Staff

    @peregrine We should either support it or remove it, so yes, that would be a legit bug to file.

    I imagine it would add some strain to very large sites by virtue of the fact that it doesn't allow discussion pagination caching via memcached. If you're not big enough to worry about memcached, you're not likely to notice.

    One thing I'd like folks to look closer at in 2.1 RC1: Markdown support, including its interaction with ButtonBar, Quotes, FileUpload, etc.

  • OOOOOOOooooooo so this means a prod release may be coming soon? /frothing-at-mouth

  • since you are using jQuery v1.10.2 on vanillaforums.org.

    when is the likelihood, that you will be changing it from 1.7.2. in a vanilla 2.1 release.

    it appears 2.1RC1 is still using 1.7.2

    The strict mode code is not working.

    After I clean up the cache, delete the database, make sure the permission on the cache folder is in order and it install just fine.

    My bad! Sorry about that.

    Very unlikely since 1) I'd basically have to take it back to beta for a change that big and 2) I really don't feel like cherry-picking those commits in when it'll happen naturally for 2.3 and 3) 2.3 is less far off on the horizon than you probably think.

    made some mods to FileUpload plugin ver 1.8.2 to work with 2.1 RC1 here.

  • nice release! are the core plugins updated as well?

  • LincLinc Director of Development Detroit Vanilla Staff

    @fr3em1nd Yes, from 2.0.18 to 2.1 you'd be hard-pressed to find anything that wasn't updated in the core repo.

    you can see the core plugins for 2.1 here:

    It's an interesting idea. Quotes, in my mind, is the foremost candidate. The others are a bit more complicated due to possible deprecation by other addons.

    My overall thought is: I think 2.3 is where you're going to see core addons shake out better. I'm championing some changes that I don't think will be ready for a 2.1 release, and I'm really anxious to get 2.1 out the door without rocking the boat too hard.

    I find it quite confusing that the branches of the Addons are different from the Garden repo. Maybe you could think about that, too, and help finding the corresponding version of addons

    Besides that issue with the SQL statement (see http://vanillaforums.org/discussion/comment/206209/#Comment_206209) (no bug report yet) no issues for me ...

    How are the themes looking? How are the major addons doing? Is upgrading easy?

    here's a few issues. Not sure if it is due to flaw in plugin programming or flaw in core, or lack of knowledge :) I haven't filed a bug.

    this part works correctly:

    when you add a plugin, the active arrow focuses on the link clicked on the side menu in the dashboard.
    the plugin added the link via addlink method to the sidepanel in dashboard.


    However, when you addlink to the main menu via plugin

    i.e. in Main Navgation Menu: Discussions, Activity, NewLink.

    the New link added never gets a class of "Selected" when it is selected.

    the NewLink added to the menu doesn't sort with configuration array that sorts other menu items, nor does a Select Class get added when the "New Link" is clicked.

    $Configuration['Garden']['Menu']['Sort'] = array(Activity, 'Discussions', 'Conversations', 'Applicants', 'Dashboard');

    Does the config statement above work with .tpl themes in 2.1rc1

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.
