ElkArte 1.0 Final - Release announcement

Almost 2 years has passed since work began on ElkArte, a first class FOSS forum program built with many exciting features. Countless hours of work and support have been applied to the project, together with extremely valuable input and feedback from our helpful and constructive community, have resulted in a product of which we are extremely proud.

Today, twenty two months after we began, we are ready to declare ElkArte 1.0.0 (codename: Wombat) stable and ready for deployment to production websites.

We extend our sincere thanks to all those who have dedicated their time, effort and money to help ElkArte reach this day. That means all those who have answered questions, written add-ons, translated text, designed themes, modified templates, reported bugs, submitted patches or written tutorials. Thank you all.

We have much more we still want to accomplish and some code for ElkArte 1.1 has already been written. We are eager to continue its development. This is an exciting time for ElkArte, and we are glad to have you with us.

The following is a list of some of the features you will find in ElkArte:

  • Clean modern theme using HTML5/CSS3 with two variants and a responsive design

YAY!

I was wondering if anyone is interested in a "big patch" to upgrade from RC to final.
It would be a quite big one, I don't even know if it would install, but if someone wants to try, I can try to generate it. ;)

How can we upgrade then? Install the final and import a database backup?

Not really, just replace the files with the new ones.

Hahaha just in time when I already fixed my forum. :D Congratulation!

Edit: I'm dumb to unzip directly the files, it replaced my Settings.php. Ahaha.
