1.2.0 Release schedule?
Hi,

I appreciate that i'm not the first person to be asking about this, but it really would be invaluable (in terms of planning out a very major board upgrade to Gossamer) to know if/when 1.2.0 is being released. Alex, Jagerman... help?

Of course I don't know anything official, but I think it should be within a few days...

This is very strange

In this board, they always responded quickly all the restlessness. I don't understand why so much silence, when they have already announced a release that has us to the expectation from 4 weeks ago. Pirate

I think it's obvious that things haven't gone exactly to plan. But pushing out an update before it's time is difficult to manage and painful to users....we don't want another WindowsME! Cool ...and I'm sure GT wants to maintain its reputation for having excellent code.

I'm anxious as well---but if it's not ready, it's not ready.

With a little luck and the correct orientation of the moon to the sun Wink, I plan to release it first thing tomorrow morning. It's mainly done, just a few little touch-ups and testing that needs to be done here and there.

I'm eager too, but am waiting to see them run it here first. Unless they just haven't change the version number since they've got pin to top already running.

Gossamer Forum is for the most part finish - we'll go through final testing procedures today and - barring no major problems - make the release available tonight.

I hacked that into our 1.1.8 forum. Wink

Since 'tonight' has come and gone and it is now tomorrow, should we conclude that there were major problems?

It's safe to conclude that they did not release it. Beyond that I wouldn't guess but you're probably on the right track.

I"m sure we'd all rather they wait until it's ready to go than release it early with potential problems.

Now teasing us with different release dates is just cruel, but those programmers have to entertain themselves somehow Tongue

Uhg... Guilty as charged. There weren't major problems, but I want to give the payment support an extra-thorough go-through before releasing - considering that it is such a sensitive area (and the first for us in a distributed product). That said, I'll be upgrading the site here shortly, as this installation won't have active payment support.

I see 1.2.0 is installed. Would it be possible for a list of new features?

Jason,

Does GForum 1.2 includes Optimized code for GForum or just new features? I have 1.1.8 installed and it works fine, that's why i'm asking... I need to know if this is worth the time and effort.

Thanks,

Thanks Jason,

I see that Gossamer-Threads is running the new version, however, you are still using the exact same templates you were using in 1.1.8 and search engine friendly templates are still there, so I guess you upgraded from 1.1.8 to 1.2.0.. that's what I would like to do without having to reinstall plugins and add globals again. is this possible? I would like to upgrade from 1.1.8 to 1.2.0 without too much problems.

... and to think that I thought that everyone wanted to re-do templates, reinstall plugins, and start from square one. Upgrading from 1.18 to 1.2 without consternation?

Gee... that's novel. I wonder if Jason has given that any consideration ....? Tongue (best sardonic I could choose)

I think we are in the same boat... I have a 'launch ready' site running locally, and I am prepared to jack-up to 1.2.0 on a clean install locally, and transfer the templates for the sake of a couple of days work.

Try not stress... I feel strangely reassured by the (perceived) delay with the new version... It saves us all having to install a patch or two over the next few weeks... Wink

I asked that a few weeks ago and the response I got was that it shouldn't affect our templates. Some of the new features might require adding code for buttons, etc., from what i understand, that's all.

But then, what do I know?

It won't break your forum if you do not upgrade templates. The worst that happens is that the new links - such as the link to make a thread sticky, or (if donation payment support is enabled) the "Donate" link won't show up, or you may not get minor fixes that have been made to the templates.

Also, when performing an upgrade, your globals, plugins, language variables, etc. are not touched. New ones will be added, but any custom globals you have added or language variables you have changed will not be removed.

The only changes you will need to make are to templates that you have modified (ones that you haven't touched - they won't have a * in the template drop-down list - will be automatically updated). A 1.1.8 -> 1.2.0 template diff will be included; I believe the Gossamer Forum Manual has instructions on how to make sense of this file for users not familiar with diff formats.

I guess my attempt at sarcasm was lost in the printed text; the last thing I am feeling is stressed.

My post was only a respond to what I perceived was another's impatience and a failure-to-read of prior posts of the last several weeks/months about 1.20 plans.

That's why I picked out the smilie with the wink and the tongue and made my 'sardonic' reference. My dry sense of humor came off... well, sort of dry.

Seriously, I have utmost confidence that when the upgrade does arrive, it will reflect Jason's consideration to most of the requests that have been made in the recent past. [End of total seriousness]

And of course, when it does arrive, that giant sucking sound you hear will be bandwidth as everyone downloads. (Now where is that smilie that I need now?.......)

A dry sense of humor is an asset in the UK, the women fall for it every time Cool... anyway, back on topic...

I was trying to re-iterate the fact that you had a valid point...

It would seem that I, like yourself, feel more comfortable with a clean install, given the opportunity on a developmental site...

Will it have the ability to delete an individual users posts? Will it have a check box select to delete certain posts at will forum by forum?

What are the upgrades and new features for the delete option? I know you said you will release it soon, but I still have not seen it. This feels like never ending foreplay.. which is not all bad Cool... it's the teasing of great things to follow with no results that sucks.

I need 2 more GTForums --- yesterday, but I have decided to wait for the new release. I'd surely give up many of the 'toy' features of the GTForum, and have the ability to have a better delete options - which are extremely important to any moderated or un-moderated froum. Especially a forum that is designed and built to grow and expand.

Surely someone has to agree with this.
