It shouldn't but during installation you will be presented with a test page. If you get any errors then you stop and see what the error is about. Of course please backup everything first: both files and the database.

SMF Updates - Updating SMF Troubles Gaming Video & Issues Computer

SMF needs to be updated if you are using versions 2.0.8 and 1.1.19 as security issues have been addressed:

Attached Image QUOTE
Simple Machines Forum has released security patches to both the 1.1.x and the 2.0.x release lines. This brings our released versions to SMF 1.1.20 and SMF 2.0.9.

Several security issues were identified in both release lines and have been addressed with this patch. It is, therefore, recommended that you update your forums immediately to ensure that your community is safe. In addition to the security patches, a few bug fixes for the SMF 2.0 line have also been included in the 2.0.9 patch. Ref. Source 3

SMF 2.1 Beta 1

SMF 2.1 Beta 1 has been released. Since this is Beta do not rush to put this in any live site. Personally, I usually wait many months after the official release because when it is considered stable and more people use its when even more bugs are found. Regardless these are the new features:

Attached Image QUOTE
A fresh, new, responsive design with Curve2:

SMF 2.0 introduced the Curve theme, which was an update that gave a more modern web look to SMF. 2.1 includes a revamp of our default theme called Curve2!

Notification Alerts:

In prior versions of SMF, notifications were a distributed affair, with the two primary options being e-mails and PMs. 2.1 changes this with the introduction of Alerts, which can be enabled to display all your forum notifications, major or minor, in a single location without cluttering your e-mail or PM inbox.

PM and Post drafts:

Ever closed a tab or window on a long post you've been writing for a long time? [..]Then Drafts is for you, it is fully integrated into 2.1, along with the ability to auto-save posts and PMs as you're writing them.

Likes and Mentions:

Likes has been added to SMF, replacing the existing Karma system with a more content oriented one.

A bunch of other stuff!

Full SSL support throughout the forum. (NOTE: Requires appropriate certificate and configurations on the server.)
Password hashing has been improved from sha1 to bcrypt.
The Admin area has received a number of usability and organizational improvements. A few of the areas have been reorganized and relocated as well as some overall clean up
The Moderation Center also has several usability improvements, including enhanced reported topics, and moderator notes among other things.
Improvements to membergroup requests and approval.
Permissions have been expanded with new permissions for member profiles, accounts etc.
Built-in support for Gravatars.
Users can select their timezones instead of manually selecting the time offsets.
jQuery is now included by default with many functions now using it in core.
Support for SQLite has been dropped.
Internal improvements reducing memory consumption and improving overall speed.
Lots and lots of other internal and external improvements! Ref. Source 2

Troubles SMF Updating Updates SMF

Name: Dave

Comments: I see there is a new SMF release (2.0.9). And a BETA version also. How difficult is it to install an update? Does it have to be done from the CP or WHM panel?

SMF Updates - Updating SMF Troubles

2.0.9 was released awhile ago you should upgrade immediately via Admin if you can as it fixes security issues.

I suggest you should join my community to keep up to date with the latest.

I do not recommend installing the beta version until they have all the bugs worked out. Also installing that version will likely mean you will have to do over all mods and the theme.

SMF has been slow in making a fully responsive layout for their software and have chosen to do this as a means to answer Google's new policy about mobile responsiveness and their algorithm:

Attached Image QUOTE
So, in order to tackle this problem in the most efficient manner, giving admins the ability to meet some of Google's requirement while maintaining a compatibility with legacy templates and mods, we have released a MODification package which will bring some "Responsiveness" To Curve. This will allow your 2.0.x forum not only to be accepted by Google's "Friendliness test", but also to have a better display in mobile devices. This mod can be applied, as with any other mod, through the Package Manager in your forum's Admin section.

However, if you plan on using this, you should be aware of some potential issues and limitations:

This MOD adds basic responsiveness to Curve. The theme doesn't become "Fully responsive"
Existing MODs which perform significant template changes might display poorly
Existing Themes (Especially Curve's variations) might be affected by these changes
This MAY not affect MANY custom themes that use their own templates which use different coding from the Curve designs. Such themes will need to have the changes parsed, tweaked and/or manually applied within their framework(S). Ref. Source 3

My response to this: Anything helps but I think the bigger problem will be all the Mods people use especially things like Ad management which ad to the bloat. It is also a daunting task, I've spent some months getting most of our sites to be responsive and we're still not there yet!
