ElkArte 1.1 beta 3 - Release announcement

The ElkArte Community is pleased to announce that the third beta release of ElkArte 1.1 is now available. This beta release is made available to allow a broad user base to test and evaluate the first minor update of ElkArte but is not recommended for production use at this stage.

In order to help us release ElkArte, users of the beta release are encouraged to report any bugs, issues or errors at our GitHub Issue Tracker.

If you are nervous about reporting bugs through the formal bug reporting system, you can simply report your issues to our user community at ElkArte.net.

We look forward to receiving your feedback on this beta release of ElkArte!

Download the package from:
https://github.com/elkarte/Elkarte/releases/tag/v1.1.0-beta.3

Some recommendations
Starting from 1.1 the install and upgrade packages have been unified, so the same package will be used for both install a new forum and upgrade an existing previous version of ElkArte (e.g. 1.0).
As usual, do not try to upgrade a live forum, as stated earlier this is a development version, so you should use it for testing only. Of course if you are mad brave enough to use it live... well pay attention it can have bugs. The amount  is currently not sure.

Some instruction
  • Upgrading from 1.0: in this case, overwrite all the files with those in the package of the release, run install/upgrade.php and enjoy the new version.
  • Updating from previous beta: unzip the package, overwrite all the files of your testing forum with the new ones, delete the install directory, and enjoy the new version.

We are not nervous users Emanuele,  we prefer the forum probably because GitHub is a tool for developers, and we like to discover new bugs instead of writing code :)

Just kidding, congrats for this new release, I will try it in localhost, and since it became more stable I will try to update my forum, in localhost obviously ;)

You are giving some information on how to update, but what about for 1.0 forums whith add-ons installed? Should we uninstall them before the update process? In the past I did an upgrade from smf 1 to 2.0 but I don't remember the way I did it.
sorry for my bad english

Honestly I don't remember the origin of the sentence. xD

Today is not the right day to answer that, but as usual, in theory it is not strictly necessary, though considering it's an upgrade it is probably worth the efforts (I mean uninstall).

I think at least a B4 is a good thing.

I don't expect many to break, apart from few cases, hook have not changed much. Addons dealing with BBC may require some adjustment due to the new parser, apart from that, AFAIR only a couple of quite obscure hooks have been changed in an incompatible way or removed.

Do we have a list of new features coming with 1.1? Or at least some links to topics about that? I wanted to inform my users of the new stuff.  O:-)

I think there are at least three or four topics around.
There is only to find them...
