Very click, is this written in php?

Wow this app is very slick for a new release!

Is it php based?
Will it ship with source or will it be like IP?

Curious, how long has Kier been coding this for now?

Yes it is PHP based.
I would imagine that the source code will be readable and editable.

And I have no idea, before today I never even knew about XF.
Yes it is written in PHP and it is visible source.

On a side note, i thought IPB was open source also.

[Edited by Kier - it's visible source, not open source]

Well, "open source" in the sense that the source code isn't encoded/obfuscated. Have to be careful with that term IMHO, especially with the people I normally talk to, they think it means free :p

How are they different 'only to the developers'? Everyone needs to understand that visible source and open source are very different, no matter your perspective. :)
Indeed. Unfortunately a lot of people I've dealt with like to use "open source" to mean "visible source". I tend to correct them, but they don't seem to learn :p
