Hey guys,

I've just upgraded my XenForo from Beta 3 to Beta 4.
I'm also upgrading my vBulletin 4.0.8 to 4.1.0 PL1.

Now, the difference between those 2 sentenses is that one is in the past and one is still going on (continious).

I've started the upgrade at the exact same time, and my XenForo Upgrade is done for +/- 10 minutes now, while my vBulletin is still stuck at 98%, for over 5 minutes.

My XenForo showed a nice little phrase that said "We are currently upgrading our forums".
In vB, I had to do that all by myself :(

I'll keep ya up to date on what errors vBulletin brings
As for XenForo, I had one little error, but that was fixed by Mike. Exellent support guys!

Btw: Still stuck at 98%

They're on PL2 already? What a joke.
Ya and lots of people are pissed.

I really hope I don't see this happening with XF. Though we can see the team here doesn't even like to put out beta's unless they are of good quality.

I don't think one could compare this product to any others currently on the market.... different worlds for functionality, code and features. Short on products... but it will get there.

vBulletin 4 is just a combination of different codes, put and mixed together in a bad way. I once compared vB4 and MS Vista on another forum.

Thank God vB 5 will be a complete re-write of the forum software.

That will be IF IB didn't give up by then.

vB5 wont be a total rewrite... v5 is supposed to be when the refactoring of vB4 will supposedly be complete. It may not even be completely refactored until v5.1 or 5.2

Nope... VB have publicly stated this is not so. VB4 is the rewrite towards VB5. It will use a majority of the same code, some new... improvements along the way, but the same core. The only significant code change will a template rewrite I believe... which is nothing but the aesthetics... even if they do that, as it doesn't seem they have done a great deal for 4.1. If they touch the forum code and make it work like the CMS... they will only dig a deeper hole for themselves, as the forum is the only part with decent performance.

With this, their legal tactics and vB4 debacle one thing is for sure: vB5 sale or presale won't fly high.
