ElkArte 1.0 beta 1 released

IchBin asked for an announcement and here it is! :P

Yesterday (25/11/2013), 1 year and 3 days after the first commit, Spuds prepared and released the first (and hopefully last O:-)) beta version of ElkArte 1.0!

1 year of hard work to bring SMF's codebase into a new cleaner, nicer, easier to work with, etc., etc. shape.

Now it's your (anyone that can't or doesn't want to play with code, to try it, test it, give suggestions, opinions, report bugs, and "the usual things".

There is only an install package, the "upgrade" (from SMF to Elk) is a destructive process, so it's better to deal with it separately (also there are still a couple of problems for example with forums that are not yet using the UTF8 encoding).

Sooo...the download is here:
https://github.com/elkarte/Elkarte/releases/tag/v1.0.0-beta.1
if you want to give a try to convert from SMF you can use TE's OpenImporter, just remember this is still a development version, so the use in "production" is not encouraged (unless you know very well what you are doing and that things can be broken).

There is also a list of known issues, it will be updated while issues are found (if relevant to mentions I'd say).

Congratulations for being first to reach this milestone! Ahead of Protendo, SMF 2.1 (which probably still has a long way to go), and my very own Wedge. I'm still hoping for a first public alpha (or beta) before 2014, but at least now I don't feel like I have to be the first to be out. Although one can say 3 years and 4 months is a lot to wait (especially for me, as it's a fulltime endeavour), and most people probably think of Wedge as vaporware these days. ;)

Maybe I should fork Elk into Wedge instead... okay, j/k :P

Good one. I think SMF has just become redundant. :)

 Antechinus is inclined to think that perhaps only one beta is being rather optimistic ;)

 emanuele is optimistic by nature (LOL)

And most important:
 emanuele doesn't write bugs

Do you think that if I repeated it enough time it will become true? :P

Hey!
I'm he only one allowed to break things here around! :P

BTW it's almost a week and apart from the "couple" of bugs that were not fixed it looks nice!
Let's clean it up that theme and start working on 1.1!! O:-)
