anybody got any clue as to how mods will be made?

I am a developer myself, and I'd be very interested how the dev's are going to play this out out - one of the biggest problems (IMO), is that developing on software such as IPB, or VB is time consuming and difficult to get around.

I hope they implement some sort of API, which we can just plug and play with :)

I think nobody - except Kier and Mike - will know this at this time, but I think it will be similar to the vB-Addonsystem... :eek:
I just hope they have a good (enough), addon system, like 1 click install.

The biggest problem is when you have to manually edit templates, hack/mess around with raw php core files to get an addon to work. Mods are a big part of forum software, and I think (In My Opinion), it's an area to "aim" for, as surely they'd want to get as many people developing mods for the forum right?

If you want to scour the threads, Mike mentioned something about the plugin system being file-based and using callbacks.
