Xenforo 2.1.0 is now "gold" meaning the final release version is now out and we can start thinking about upgrading the live site. I need to do some work in our dev site, including installing the updated style to give it the WC2 "look and feel" and getting my testers to play around some more.

Based on my availability and allowing some time for testing and tweaking, I think we will likely be able to upgrade on the Feb. 16-18 weekend, which is the Family Day holiday weekend in Ontario (and some other provinces). That gives me three days to work on the live upgrade. A final date will be announced when I figure out the best time.

With this upgrade and the recent addition of the Wondercafe2 Study Groups forum enabling dedicated, focussed studies of the Bible and other books, we are trying to kick things up a notch so I hope a few of you can step up and start promoting us on social media, to potentially interested friends, and so on. I will certainly be tweeting a bit about activities here in the coming weeks.

Thanks for your hard work, Mendalla. I think the new version looks great and all the new features make it both easier and richer.
Loved to see it.

Okay, family comes first. Owing to some last minute vacation plans, upgrade is now most likely to happen on the first or second weekend in March. So either March 2-3 or March 9-10. That gives some more time for tweaking and testing though I think I and the folks who've been reviewing the work are pretty happy with the current state of things.

I am hoping for next weekend (March 3) but we shall see. I am only just back from my vacation so not sure how things will shake out in the coming week.

Is there a clear, easy method for donating? I'm sure I did it before but my failing memory cells aren't co-operating!

Okay, I am going to go out on a limb and say the upgrade will happen on Sunday morning, March 3. The board will likely be down from 8am until 9am EST and some features may not be fully finished until after lunch due to time needed to configure them.

Edit: Added time zone.

I will be trying to get on WC2 and then complaining that I can’t afterwards, because I will get the time zones wrong. I am aiming at 103 responses to my thread. ( random number).:whistle:

Will be getting ready for a ski race. Good luck with it, Mendy.

Good luck. Little M has yet to get to a hill this year. Too busy between class work and coop applications. His current winter sport is skating on the Rideau.

I really only get one race a year. Busy chasing my daughter around to her races. Zach is almost off the rope - we expect he'll be off it very soon. Just needs a little stronger "pizza" out of those short legs. I may do provincial champs this year. We'll see how I do this weekend.

I'll have just gotten home from work. Ah well, I'll just listen to the radio.

I'd stick to k-pop.:rolleyes:
To each their own. My preference is for Christian talk radio. Last night (my time) a couple of pastors were discussing the five points of Calvinism.

Actually, that sounds interesting. I usually go to podcasts rather than radio for stuff like that. When I hear talk radio, I am thinking Rush Limbaugh and others of that ilk.
