We would like to announce that Sphinx 1.1(RC) is now available for immediate download from our downloads area.
This brings to light (finally, we know) SMF 1.1 compatibility, and several overall improvements to the code base.
Some of these improvements include, but are not limited to the following:
- Corrections for any reported bugs from previous versions.
- Improved Block Management main interface.
- Collapsible blocks
- Improved default theme
- Improved database queries
- Recent Topics block by recently active or recently added topics
- Vastly improved User Info block
- Further clean up of code and output source
- Lots of additional things as well!
We are committed to this release, and we’re already planning Sphinx 1.1.1 once 1.1 goes final. Our current estimated time frame to 1.1 final is approximately 60 days, depending on bug reports and severity with the RC package. This will allow plenty of testing time, and allow for time to get any issues sorted and corrected.
From there, we will continue to stick to an approximate schedule of releases every 60-90 days, depending on issues and improvements.
In addition to this, we will be continuing work on our 2.0 release as well, which is still tracking for development release in later this year. However, 1.1 will not sit stale during this time, as mentioned we are committed to its releases and update cycle.
In closing, we’d like to thank our premium members for giving this a shakedown and helping us produce even higher quality public releases.
In addition we would like to thank you, our users, for giving this a chance to flourish its young roots as it takes off to become your portal of choice.
