It looks like the same to me as vB4... It is doomed to fail! I regret everytime again if i think back that i bought the vB4 suite license twice... Never used the blog or cms!
I'm happy with my xenforo license but it have a lack in addons. Still waiting for some kind of garage software. I hoped drivethruonline was considering it but there is it really quiet so have no hope they will port theire addons to xenforo.
Still looks far to difficult for a newbie to navigate. When i first started as a forum owner i loved all the bloat vB offered.. But since moving away from vB to XF i found its intuitive interface to be a breath of fresh air.. I in no way miss all the UI bloat on vB forums.. They all (vB forums) look like a cluster f**** of useless details.. If they ever figure out how to keep the bloat and make the UI pretty at the same time i believe vB might have a winner.. But then even if its solid gold i will never again give IB my money after they dismissed our 3.8 license agreements.
