When is IPB 4.0 ?

Recommended Posts

* uses THE FORCE to produce FULL WORKING COPIES of IPB 4.0 *

NOW, who wants a copy of IPB Community Suite 4.0? :lol:

I'm only charging $1.

Hey, I need to think forward for my retirement fund. lols

ermaghersh gimme gimme gimme lulz haha you got it out before those slow pokes at invizion did

Anyway, while I'm at it, I'll add my opinion on the matter: IPS can take as long as they need to in order to make 4.0 the best it can be.

Please, never do that again.

I thought I had made it pretty clear I was trying to imitate all the impatient people on here who are rushing IPS to finish 4.0 ASAP. :P

I hope they don't have the look itself TOO different, to the point of it feeling worse to me. I already like the current look for the most part. I really wish they would change userInfoPane, though, to have those stats lined up in some other way because once you add some custom info there, it starts looking bad.

It's very different. You can tell that it has IP.Board DNA, but it's a modernisation of our look and branding. I think you'll like it, though.

So excited :p

Looked cool from that sliver we saw in the theme editing screenshots.

I'm looking forward to this a lot. Traffic analysis of my site is showing me that 50% of all new people on the site are using mobile devices and the current mobile skin is way less than optimal on my site. (Pretty much default mobile skin for forums).

We are working around it but we don't really want to do major skin changes multiple times. (This is where having a rough date helps for planning guys. No matter how much you protest about it being done when it is done. As a business, we need to know some things so we can plan)

And any news about Gallery?

I knew someone would just have to ask about apps that are NOT yet mentioned.

We haven't posted any news about any apps really yet. When we are ready to, it will be available in the blog. This includes Gallery.

You disliked the look and feel of 3.x when it came out too (yes, I remember ;) ). Hopefully you'll like 4.0 when you see it, but if not .... you'll come around eventually. :lol:

I think when I didn't like a look was early 3.x, though, before it looked close to this current way. I'm pretty sure I always liked it when it got to this point. I also like the fonts and just the overall feel of it. I usually do eventually like things I start out not liking, though, so yeah I'm not too worried.

Do you guys think it's going to be difficult to upgrade from the current version of IPB to 4.0? Or since it's a complete overhaul, we'll need to use a convertor and to upgrade the board. Just asking cause I am thinking of starting a board but would probably wait for 4,0 of the upgrade is going to be difficult.

It will be a normal upgrade process using our upgrade routines.

The most difficult aspect of major upgrades is usually working with custom skins and third party applications/hooks.

If you're going to start a new community and you plan on wanting to upgrade to 4.0 as soon as it comes out, keep this in mind.

There's no guarantee any hook, application or skin in the marketplace will be updated for comparability with 4.0, and even if they are, you may end up having to wait weeks or even months for those upgrades to push through.

If you're okay with throwing a stock install of IP.Board up and just using that until 4.0 comes around, you should have nothing to worry about.

I can do all sorts of stuff in 4.0. It's quite nice. I should tell you all about it.

But really it's actually going along quite well. There's a lot more done than we're letting on. We just do not want to reveal any front-end features until everything is pretty or people will (this may shock you) get hung up on it and tear us apart :smile:

There's also contrasting colors.

I have a few people I remember from the 3.2 reveal that I am tempted to just go ahead and mod queue now :lol:. Some people go beyond feedback to just annoying ranting.

Look at all the cool things I'm doing in 4.0. Sure wish you guys could see.
