Today, twenty months after we began, we are ready to declare XenForo 1.0.0 stable and ready for deployment to production websites.
This stable release is accompanied by our new end-user documentation, bulk discount scheme and a special offer to thank those who have supported us over the past few months.
Since we released our first beta version to the public in October 2010 the community has been extremely busy. A brief inspection of the forums here reveals:
Released add-ons include a portal, a custom BB code manager, iPhone and Android applications, bridges to other software, advertising management systems and all manner of administrative tools and helpers.
The speed at which add-ons are being produced for XenForo, and the quality of the code driving them is nothing short of staggering.
All tastes are accounted for, with heavy industrial styles, light and airy styles, graphics-intensive styles and technical styles making innovative use of the style properties system.
These styles have been maintained throughout the pre-release phase of XenForo by a wide variety of stylers, and we anticipate seeing even greater achievements now that the software is declared stable.
The graphically talented have been hard at work producing ancillary, additional and replacement graphics for XenForo, and some of their creations are truly inspired.
Considering that these figures have been reached before the software has even been declared stable, we consider this an astonishing feat.
We extend our greatest thanks to all those who have dedicated their time, effort and money to helping XenForo reach this day. That means all those who have purchased licenses, answered questions on the forums, written add-ons, designed styles, painted graphics, modified templates or written tutorials and guides. Thank you all.
A special thanks must go to our moderators, who have worked tirelessly to give us developers as much development time as possible while maintaining order and civility on the forums.
We have so much more we still want to do, and our development plans are daunting in their scale and breadth, but code for XenForo 1.1.0 has already been written and we are bursting to write more. This is an exciting time for forum software, and we are glad to have you with us.
