Is It Worth Going to 2.0

#1
I am currently on Version 1.4. Is it worth going to 2.0? Are the features better? More importantly is this release stable or loaded with bugs due to it being in its infancy?

The 2.x version is stable. In my view, the question to upgrade remains focused on addons. If an addon isn’t updated for 2.x then wait or do without. Otherwise, 2.x is definitely worth the upgrade.

One of my current concerns is that staying on 1.4 makes it a target for hackers. As detailed in another thread I was hacked recently. I am not sure it was Xenforo though, as I have Joomla installations on the same server. I believe Joomla to be highly hackable. I am in the process of moving everything over to Wordpress. Wordpress has updates regularly and should help prevent some of the site based problems.

I also really don't like the idea of sitting on a very old version, as it will eventually be un-upgrade-able.

Do you know if I can upgrade from 1.4 directly to 2.0?

LPH what would you say some of the features are that make the upgrade worth it?

I had a look at that, but don't know the reality.
I just noticed that you are part of sales. ;-)
I had some questions of the sales team recently and they weren't as friendly as you.


If I bought a license years ago, I am guessing the extension option is no longer available. If I pay again, does that give me 2 licenses or just a renewal? After I buy the license, do I have to pay the extension every year?

If you have a license you can get the extension. Then you can decide if you want to upgrade to 1.5.x or to 2.x

If you are referring to me, please understand that I am a customer and not part of XenForo sales or development.

As @ge66 stated, extend your license and you'll have access to the latest XenForo.

If you pay again you get a second license with a year of updates included. If you renew the current license for $40 you get a year of updates for that license only and don't need to pay anymore except once a year.

I would just renew the current one.

Audent.io is developing a XenForo and Wordpress integration plugin for one of our clients. I believe they're releasing it to the public later this week.
