Wouldn't it be safe to assume that at least one of those plugins will be updated when XenForo 1.2 is released?

Regarding 5 DRE is it actually set in stone responsive will appear in 1.2? I know Mike has made a reference about it and it's the likely route xenforo will take but wondering if this is confirmed for 1.2?

I wouldn't confirm #5 until Mike or Kier confirm it, versus a post by a staff member from October. Plans have changed, since that post also states the RM was meant to require v1.2.

A mobile solution was promised for 1.2 and KAM know that's what people are now expecting/assuming. If it wasn't going to be the case I'd have thought they'd have let people know that it was delayed (which people would understand given the circumstances) rather than disappoint every when 1.2 is released without it.

Perhaps to come up with a list of addons that might not need to be used, thus lowering the amount of addons one might have installed on their site?
Well, he could of said... all i see is a statement that "5 of my addons will no longer be needed".... like... ok... good for you? :p

Does the new template system really replace TMS?

As I understood it, the new system was more for devs and replaced the template hook system used by addons whilst TMS is heavily used by people modifying their styles.

I'm not sure what exactly is happening based off the discussion in the thread in Have You Seen....but I'm hoping it could eventually be a full replacement.

I still see #1 needing to stay, just a hunch, slightly agree with #5 (if it arrives, not sure how it will effect themes yet.). With #4, you can't really uninstall because it still has some great options that haven't been included in core. Never used the others.


And.... your point of discussion is?

Slightly rude....

TMS does a lot more compared to what is planned for 1.2.
So I expect all add-ons (except 2 and 3 in your list) to be updated and usable even after 1.2 comes out.

Mobile Style is also per definition different from Responsive Design by Arty. I would always prefer responsive coding over an additional mobile style.

Hell yeah be optimistic. I'm really hopeful it will be in 1.2 since I'm refraining myself from purchasing Arty's responsive add-on (which is becoming difficult since it's a great add-on my site could do with) and really want to give my site some responsive love.
Arty's secretly screaming, "Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Curse you XenForo!"

From an end user's perspective good core functionality that replaces existing plugins is always a good thing (unless your a bare bones type Admin) But i do feel bad for the third party devs here with no road map im sure its frustrating to develop a product just to watch it become pointless for the most part.
