Nope...
Wedge looks (and plays) better than Wedge.org in every possible way. If it weren't any different, we'd already be using it and wouldn't need to build an import tool first. :P

Thanks a lot for persevering in this fork venture. I have to ask if there will be a beta version out for public testing? or RC release, following in what SMF team does before releasing a final version? Or will we have to wait for the final version of Wedge? BTW, very cool name for your fork version.

Also, it seems that the SMF folks are finally releasing 2.0 gold at the end of this month. Are the Wedge devs going to rework everything from the 2.0 gold release, which is the recommended route to follow, as 2.0 gold will have even more bugs ironed out, so it is logical to build Wedge off of the most the stable 2.0 release, instead of customizing a bug-ridden 2.0 RC release.

We're not even at public alpha yet, so there's no way we can tell you what our plans are for later; we just do not know yet.

As for using SMF 2 final, we actually have to because of their licence restrictions, SMF does not go BSD until 2.0 final which means we can't make the fork code public prior to that point. But we're not going to make it public straight after because it's not ready for that yet.

We have been keeping up with bug fixes, since I still have SVN read access so I've been porting bug fixes back from their SVN into our repo as and when, though we have fixed more bugs than their repo has...

Yes. Why would we release a final public version without going beta first...?

We can't release a RC-based version anyway, because RCs aren't BSD'ed, even after Final gets out.
So we're keeping up with the bug fixes in SMF2, yes. It's not like there's a lot to do. We do much more bug fixing, and we don't even have beta testers for now. :P

Sorry for bumping this old topic.

Nao, I wanted to thank you publicly for all of the AeMe work and both you and Arantor for your work on SMF. I have many sites and use phpBB, vB, joomla, and various other software (paid and free) and I decided to give SMF a try on a new site I'm creating. I really like it so far and it's because of mods like AeMe. Even some of the most expensive paid mods I have on some of my vB and joomla sites don't function as well or have nearly as many features and usually the larger they are the more buggy they are which is not the case with AeMe. Needless to say that I really like SMF and the mods that I am using (paid and free versions) but since I'm new to the SMF world, I had no idea all of the behind-the-scenes stuff going on.

With that said, I will gladly setup a test server and help in any way that I can with Wedge development. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help. I'm a beginner-to-intermediate level programmer so I might not be the best at helping code, but I do have resources (server space and bandwidth) that I can use, I'm pretty decent at pen-testing and security, and I'm really  good at breaking things.  :mdr:

Offer stands if there's anything I can do to help with Wedge, let me know

Thanks ;)
We don't need help though. But you should post on wedge.org rather than here, additionally ;)

We will of course be interested to see what pen testing turns up once we've got a publicly usable release out but at the present time, we are keeping it to just the two main devs - and it's hard enough keeping track of all the changes with just us two sometimes...
