Anyone gone live with RC1?

Post by jester77 » Wed Jun 06, 2007 6:51 pm

I know we must wait but I was wondering if anyone here has gone live with rc1?
If so hows it going?

No we must not. RC = Release Candidate = Supposed stable enough for use in live environment, as opposed to Beta. That is why RC1 is supported while Betas were not ;)


Me, I've gone live with RC1 the very day it came out, and only encountered very minor bugs so far.


This being said, if you feel very insecure about it, by all means, wait for gold 8-)

I assume it would be bashing an open door to remind you that upgrades from Beta5 (or any beta for that matter) are discouraged and not supported by the dev team ? :?

I say just use it. The developers can't come out and say that they want everyone to use it live, but in reality once these things get to RC it's pretty safe to use it. Of course you're taking a risk, but any new software is a risk regardless. Heck there were security holes in 2.0 even after years of people using it live.

Using it on my College's Gaming Club's site. Only one minor issue but I think it's a problem on our end.

But it's working great.

I've been using it live since probably the day it became available.

It upgraded easily from phpBB 2.0.22.

I did the left/right swap for the usernames in Prosilver, did a fixed width, and also changed the colors on Prosilver via http://www.phpbb.com/rules/#rule6a

I haven't really seen any noteworthy bugs.

Yup. I'm live with RC1 and so far haven't had any problems. Mind you I haven't gone about doing any HUGE mods to my board, but so far (knock on wood) so good.

you can discuss about going live with the RC, but you cannot discuss about updating the betas (as that can be seen as support) OR post links to your forums. :)

Yes, RC is supported and i have one site upgraded from .22 to RC. :)

I swtched to RC1 from 2.x on the day of release - easy to change over, conversion was a breeze :lol:

Spam has stopped completely (so far), and the new features are nice. Some of the members don't like proSilver much, but that's the only complaint I've had.
