Jumping the Vb4 ship - Do I wait or not?

    Hi folks,

    I want to jump ship from Vb4 to XF. (www.landcruiserclub.net) When I jumped ship from phpBB to Vb4 I did so just before Vb5 was released. This irked me a bit as it was not an included upgrade. (Hindsight, this was a good thing)

    I find VB4 quite dated now and the final push has been tapatalk hijacking my users but without a responsive design I cannot do much about it.

    So, is XF2.0 out next week / month (official or rumours)?

    From an official PoV - will the upgrade from 1.x to 2.0 be part of my normal licence? I don't want to start off on old software. I have a run-up time of a month or so ( I have a day job) from the point of purchase to cutting over fully.

    XF2 will be available this year.

    Other than that, there is no more information on a date or even rough timescale.

    I would not wait, it could be a year after release before it is viable to use on a live site.

    Cool, thanks. Anything on the "It'll be part of the upgrade"?

    I agree with you on this. When Vb5 was released it was a disaster. :eek:

    I think I'll pull the trigger in the next couple of weeks.

    If you purchase an XF1 license, you will be able to upgrade to XF2 at no additional cost, if you have active support and updates (which is included in the license cost for the first 12 months) and a release is made available during that time.

    Thanks all. So far so good. Importer runs ok, just having a feel around for a bit.
