I agree it does resemble vB in some ways, which is infact very good. But overall it gives a impression of a different and more sophisticated software than vBulletin.

And yes I will agree right now vB is the best, but this looks like potentially a serious threat to vBulletin to me. Much bigger than IPB ever was.

Apparently I wasn't worth being let in on the private preview.

It still has quite a way to go if they are going to price it comparable to vb and ipb. That would mean it would need a workable CMS and blogs. It will be interesting to see how it develops.

Yes, it seems the child has arrived.

I see this differently. Ofcourse the backend is of an utmost importance, but let me tell you that in today's software-world the frontend UI/UX is a HUGE factor in making a product successful. Remarkable enough, Internet Brands doesn't seem to have any insight in this, seeing what they did with the UI of vBulletin4. It is so unbelievable bad... and then to realize they charge a premium price for this.

Our company and foundation will keep a serious eye on XenForo. Upgrading to the unstable and dysfunctional vB4 is no option: our pre-sale purchase is still living on our local harddisk. Zipped that is. After 8 months Internet Brands still are unable to provide/convince. A big shame what they did to the reputation of this once outstanding/trusted software package.

They have lost -amongst hundreds of others- one of their biggest promotors: me. If Kier&Mike can come up with integrated Blogs and CMS I am sold.

Yep, verrry. Can´t wait to have a look what´s underneath the cowling... - or to see the "XenForo - what´s inside ? A complete walkthrough" on YouTube

A CMS and/or blog,are pretty far down the pike, I'm sure. xenForo is very much in its infancy, and that's where their focus is right now - producing a full-featured, and stable, forum platform.

^^ Then why do they have that "home" button on the navbar... and what will people do for the homepage if they dont even give something like vBadvanced.

I for one will never be comfortable with something like joomla or wordpress for a homepage as they dont integrate well with the forum.

Definitely we are as soon as it has all the modifications we need. And it's a lot.

At the same time is is very feature rich.
Hardly surprising when you have the world's most qualified forum developers using the latest coding techniques to start from scratch. And they have gone back to the drawing board. For example, there are no private messages, but instead private conversions which you can invite other people to view.
The permissions system has been built from scratch to cater for the difficulties of private forums and banned users.
And Ajax has been used to the maximum to do things like discussion watching, message liking, spam killing etc. in nicely animated overlay popups. Oh and their spam killer has an undo button! And you can scroll the page nav left and right (with a nice animation) to get to the page you want.

The upgrade from vB to XF will create 301 redirects and passwords will transfer seamlessly.

I have been very sad at the way IB have been destroying vBulletin and our business and the livelihoods of several people depend upon the forum software we use, so the strategic decision on what direction to take has not been taken lightly.
We're with vBulletin probably for the next six months at least.
But the world of forum software has moved on and vB has been well and truly left behind.

Apologies - I've raved! It's easily done!
