    IPS 4 is now available as a preview at: http://zend.ipsdevserver.com/ips4/

    It's slow, but clean, but again, it's slow. I think nothing compares to xenForo in terms of performance. Good work Mike! And I think it's the perfect time (from a marketing standpoint) to start showing what's coming to xenForo 1.4 (y)

    That would be great if you could provide some screenshots. The thought of having to sign up nearly gave me a heart attack and had to quickly close the page down.

    Besides, it is a preview/alpha not released as a download. So comparing perfomance at this time is beyond stupid.

    Error logging should not slow down the system that way. It's not stupid to compare performance at this time but if you want a more reasonable comparison then I can safely say that the xenForo preview was faster than this IPS preview.

    Oh, hi Shelley. When did you get back?


    I'm waiting for my account to be approved on it.

    Hi Liam, I've been in and out of here for a month now but merely as a guest nothing more. Yeah, i decided to sign up to check it out also and awaiting approval (hopefully IPS don't remember who I am). :p

    At a glance, looking at those screenshots, I'm not......... *holds tongue until seeing it live* But I know how much screenshots can be deceiving.

    A reasonable comparison is when you install both software on same server.

    I'm hoping the functionality of the board exceeds my thoughts my on the style :D

    My screen sometimes wobbles in Chrome when I close the terms of use and privacy policy page windows on the register page. You have to click on the x in the corner to close it too, instead anywhere outside of the box like you can on most of those overlays which is a little annoying.

    Looks like they're using mandrill to track the registration emails, I wonder if there's built in integration?

    Hmmm...when continuing as a guest to the site when waiting to be verified I get an error. Not sure if it's just because I'm not verified or something else, not a very userfriendly error message.


    Now I'm in a continuous loop of logging in, being as to continue as a guest and then instead of letting me in as a guest it automatically logs me out again.

    I guess that's as far as I can go for now! :sleep:

    Is that editor redactor too? Same version as XF, or heavily modified?

    It's based on CKEditor 4: http://ckeditor.com/demo

    Interestingly, although XF is based on Redactor, it uses the spritesheet from CKEditor 4.

    Signed up for it, and willing to give it a shot.

    One thing I like about IPB is that they have a very good blogging system. I wish XF had one.

    In regards to 4.0
    I am glad there is a little delay with the software release so I can discover more about IPB 4 and spend more time with Xenforo and Burning Board.

    While I have little reason to convert from IP board...I do like to spend unbiased time with both software.
    I highly doubt i'd convert back to Xenforo anytime soon(for several reasons) but I am glad to have something to sort of compare the two(plus BB which is more of a competitor for IPB with its feature set compared to XF forum only)

    It is pretty snappy for me. Wait for the official launch and then compare it on the same server as your Xenforo site.

    That "Create" or "Start new topic". I have been using it for months on my XF forum as a custom add-on. I wish it was standard in xenforo to begin with as it is great for new users who are not well versed with a forum structure.

    I hope there's also a free addon like that available here for XF :)
