We want to release Vanilla 2.
1. The problems
There are some core improvements, feature completions, and bug fixes that *need* to get into the core product before we release Vanilla 2 out into the wild. If we shift our focus slightly, we can get those items finished within a couple of weeks.
The real work comes in the form of cross-platform testing. Even if we tell you the operating system (and version), php version, and mysql version to use - every system will have different configurations for every part of their stack (web server, mail server, database server, and modules used therein). This is the truly challenging part of doing a Vanilla 2 release.
2. The solution
We had been planning to install and test Vanilla in as many environments as we can and hope to catch problems before they get out there. However, after recent discussions here in the community forum, we are reconsidering our stance. It makes far more sense to enlist your help, and get you to install and test Vanilla in your environments and help us find & fix cross-platform issues.
3. The call to action
To get Vanilla 2 released, we need to work together.
Will you help us get Vanilla out the door by testing a very early stage release candidate on your stack?
Will you attempt to fix bugs you encounter yourself and contribute them to the project?
If you are unable to fix the bugs, will you provide detailed information about your stack to help others resolve the issues?
Will you take part and actively help out here on the community forums as others work through the issues?
The response we are looking for is "yes" or "no".
