    Quick, Chris DChris D, release XF2.2 so you can one up them!


    Maybe we can squeeze two or three more releases from each company before midnight as they battle to get the most advanced features to market before the other one and have the last say!

    Tis a good day for communities everywhere. This evening there will so many admins, tucked up in a cosy corner, installing and tweaking away at their installs with glee.

    XF has a way to go before feature parity with IPS, but I do look forward to it.

    I'm only pointing it out to avoid misleading people / getting their hopes up: They released a beta today. The posts in this thread imply that it might be a stable release.

    Good point, I didn’t realise that from the showcase summary and only scanned the full article to see the features.

    Still, seems like a lot of forum devs, no matter what company they represent for have hit some great milestones today, which is pretty cool and great for everyone doing their best to build communities online.

    Absolutely. It's almost as if there's still a market for forum software, despite all the doom and gloom that suggests there isn't :)

    Does XF need to have feature parity with IPS to continue being successful? Does not seem so. I’m not trying to start another forum software debate but it does seem these type of comments get thrown around without any real substance (or stats showing what forum admins want).

    You will always have overlapping of features but no there does have to be parity 100%. Else it would be the same software and no diversity.

    Yes forgot Beta in the topic title corrected that mistake.

    Anyone on the Beta yet? I'm holding off until the skin I'm using gets upgraded as this update apparently breaks all skins (again)

    We're gonna wait until it's not a beta to push through 4.4. :)

    Yeah, it would be nice, but it won't be coming. I just want it so I can show up in the "You may also like" results when someone downloads MotorTrend

    We're hosted by IPS and so I've had to hack the templates all over the place to get things to behave like the community wants. As a result these upgrades are a lot of "fun" for me. :(

    I have complete confidence IPS will deliver with world class first party support for everything a forum owner will ever need.

    Setting up your site in a way that its lifeblood is dependant on unstable, fly by night addons from criminals and third world natives is begging for disaster.

    As a forum owner, I have a responsibility to my members that I take very seriously and I will supply the most stable, secure and viable platform possible.

    I know how to run a respectful, successful team who puts the members first been doing it for over 10 years and have built and structured many thriving communities.

    I'll change the world by being myself. The new breed of admins wants to open a community and complain about why there is no traffic, they should make a facebook group. A community is more than a forum its a network of tools and resources to further the subject matter.
