RC 2.1 ?

Hello,

I noticed that this site is running JForum 1.0 - RC 2.1 and I was just wondering if RC 2.1 is available to download yet? When I went to sourceForge.net it says that there is a RC2 download but there isn't one for RC2.1. is RC 2 the same as the RC2 download at sf?

Thanks.

Ken

Just after I released rc 2, I figured out I leave some things that shouldn't. Not a big deal, just some configuration to the search and another thing I cannot remeber right now. These changes doesn't affect the forums that are being used to test jforum or to see the code, but I thought I should update jforum.net anyway.

RC3 is comming soon, I just need to improve the search, which takes too much time to process on big databases, since it uses a simple LIKE argument to find the contents.

Cool, thanks for letting me know.. I think I may finally have some free time to play with the source code.. I will see what I can do and if I see something that I might be able to work on I will let you know..

One thing I Just noticed.. It took a while to get the email notification that you replied to this topic. do you batch the email messages or are they sent out live?

Thanks,
Ken

Nice. If you're in doubt about what to do, you can think about cool stuff to add, like some kind of way to let the user mark topics as "Favorite", there is the need to implement Private Messages, icq / msn topic anwser notification etc.. crazy stuff :P

I sent to a queue ( implementation at net.jforum.util.concurrent and net.jforum.util.mail ), to not block the message posting, basically.

The dispatch of the message depends of many factors, like email server load, network and so son.. So, sometimes the message can arrive soon, sometime not..

I think the first thing I will play with is to convert the Templates to XHTML, I looked at the todo list and this one seemed the easiest to do so far.. I guess you have to start somewhere. If I get this done, what should I do with the files I have changed? Send them to you?

That is cool, I like it.. I will have to check that out to see how you did it.

Thanks,

Using Dreamweaver, all you need to do is choose File -> Convert -> XHTML ;) ( well, it helps a lot )

I can't wait for RC3 to become available..

Have you thought of using Lucene for the searching? I looked into it for my site but didn't get to far, I am using the simple Like argument as well and I am sure there is a better way.

Lucene = http://jakarta.apache.org/lucene/

Should I bother converting the pages, or are you just going to use DreamWeaver? Either way, it doesn't matter to me

I had a propotype version working with lucene, but I dropped before I released a public version. Lucene is cool, but is kinda strange work with it using databases. So, I decided to use the time to fix the forum and to finish more important stuff.

But in a near future I'll try to plug lucene on jforum

OK, I will assume you are going to do it, and I will look for something else to work on...

I was thinking on working on the Spell Checker, but I figured it might be worth while to work on something else that is required to get done before the 1.0 final release..

On that note, is there a list of features that you want to have in 1.0 Final but aren't implemented yet? I assume that if you wait for every feature to get done before the 1.0 final then it will never get done. If there was a list for features to go into 1.0, and then a list for features to go in after 1.0 that might make it easier for me to figure out what to work on.. Maybe we should start a thread with all the features that need to be done in 1.0 in it and then when all of those features and bugs are working/fixed then 1.0 will be done.. Just and idea.

So the only feature left to do before 1.0 final is Private Messages? Have you started working on this yet? If so, can you point me to the code so I can take a look at it..

How do you want the private messages to work?

In the first version, almost like phpbb do. In the next versions, we make it better ;)

You can use many of the functionalities available on topic posting.. Moreover, I really recomend to reuse code, since we all are OO fans ;)
You really don't need to make it perfect for the first or second time, don't worry about it.

I have made a simple presentation. I recomend you to go to some site that have phpbb running ( or best, download it to your machine, so you can try easly ). The demo uses portugue pages, but I have put comments in english.. is just to give you a brief!!

The demo is available on:

Thanks for that little demo, it make it a lot easier to see what you want it to do.. I will look at he code for RC 2 and see what I can do.. I will problably wait until RC3 is out, to start coding, this will help eliminate any of the annoying updating issues.. How long do you think until RC3 will be available? I have never used this framework/template system before, so it will take me some getting used too.. But I will try my best

Do you update CVS on sourceforge nightly, or just when you release?

I can't seem to get into it... I'm kind of new to using the command line CVS


I tried the following:

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/jforum login

it brings me back to the cmd prompt... so I tried the next command

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/jforum co development

and I get this error msg:
cvs server: cannot find module development' - ignored
cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot expand modules

please help
