    All of it? Well, the important parts at the very least. Index, topics, etc.

    More will obviously be shown over time. Consider it more of a dribble of information than a flow ;)

    Let's hope there's a wow factor.

    Screenshot the responsive forum index opened on a generic smartphone.

    Something like this? I don't have a generic smartphone to hand, but these are taken using Firefox's Responsive Viewer (part of the developer tools):

    Note this isn't finalised and things will likely change before release :)

    It reminds me of the 1.8 theme. I thought the new theme for 2.0 would be a much bigger overhaul in appearance.
    Nice to see that there's a sidebar now. Not sure how I feel about the big O on the navbar, as it feels very out of place.

    Most interesting thing is probably the navbar, and the sidebar.
    Are you using AJAX for the alert system?

    I'm like that a lot already. 2.0 looks like a whole new software in itself, that's how I see this on the tablets.

    Quite honestly, I thought MyBB was going to drag the secrecy thing with MyBB 2.0 out for another six months or so, so it's a pleasant surprise that there's something to show. I'm just not seeing how it's unique in the current market, with quite a few decent choices in the free forum software market.

    Does MyBB 2.0 have a full-out widget system like ABB, IPB, Wordpress, etc., or is the sidebar hard-coded into the index theme?

    Is a listing of today's daily updated topics at long last going to be shown out of the box for guests when search is available to them? I hoped that by 2015 MyBB would've given at least symbolic consideration to improve discoverability of content.

    Out of curiosity, Why is your name Justin in the screenshots?

    Maybe his real name is Justin. Who knows really? :) Justin is a pretty cool name. I was going think cause they are working on it maybe he wanted to use Justin as just an example or something.

    I thought Justin was the one who creates the themes for MyBB. That's why I was confused.

    There is a Justin S. I know that for a fact, he is the one who creates MyBB themes in general.

    The big "O" in the navbar is the user's avatar, it just so happens that that is Justin's ;)

    We're not sure yet as we're still writing a lot of the system and need to do serious feasibility testing. If we do, it'll be an option rather than being on out of the box.

    There's a basic widget system being worked on. Widgets include:

    - Forum List
    - Recent Topics
    - Who's Online

    We'll also probably add some kind of social widget for a Twitter/Facebook feed. Of course, others will be easily treatable by developers.

    As said above, the latest posts block is a widget, which can be used if an administrator wants to.

    Because that's the name of the test user I use. My primary browser is Safari, but it doesn't have as good responsive utilities as Firefox does. I therefore use Firefox with a second test user.

    And yes, the Justin in the screenshot does refer to Justin S :p Justin is the lead designer for the project, and Mike CreuzerMike Creuzer sometimes does some design work too.

    So Justin is doing the styling for 2.0 also? This is going to be awesome. :)
