That's sort of like saying you don't want to buy a new car because the old one "still runs". Sure, it does, but it's just going to keep getting older whereas the new one is much better under the hood and will be able to support more new-fangled gadgets.I hope it breathes a bit of life into 2.0...I am still on 1.5, theres just not enough to move to the newer version for me.
you start to annoy here realy, i am talk about upgrade from 1.5 to XF2 not for fresh install or start new project if so i will use XF2 to, but for now, for me, mein opinion only is stay on 1.5.But it is built into the core now, less chance of it breaking or a developer dropping support.
Then there is no compelling reason for those sites to update to XF2 at this point, simple really.there is so many site who uses custom setup and custom add on, and lots of premium add on, i think large forums need minimun 5-7K to even think about upgrade, even small forum with couple premium add ons need 100-300$ to renew or buy same add on for XF2.
Find that an update to XF2 is worthwhile, very even.But there are features in the XF2 core that are not in the XF1 core.
We’re not going to provide a running commentary on development, but I can at least confirm that development of XF2.1 is well under way. And, as is typical with our previous releases and that of our competitors, more details will be released via the HYS forum closer to the time.Now my question about what the status about XF 2.1 is, was ignored (or not answered yet).
Sometimes you have to take a step backwards before leaping forwards. It seems to me that XF2 was about improving the framework and code base in preparation of future features as well as provide a better experience for addon developers and of course XF developers. XF has always been about quality over quantity, not everyone is interested in all features and a fast forum is always better than a feature rich slow forum.It seems to me that xf is 2 steps behind from modern counterparts.
I'm not one to fanboy a brand, but what exactly have IPS and WBB added that is revolutionary that XF doesn't have?It seems to me that xf is 2 steps behind from modern counterparts. IPS made great progress since their 4.2 launch, WBB has a lot of essential packages, and basically any niche forum out there died and is basically a subreddit of reddit now. Facebook is trying to become more like a forum and all of them (social media giants) have apps and APIs.
Professional newsletters would be interesting, I think a feature suggestion already exists. What does "online banking payments" mean? Some countries have bank transfer methods, typically some European ones that have Stripe support, but generally bank transfers are subject to manual approval, things like ACH, Faster Payments, CHAPS, SEPA. Those kinds of things can't really be added.Professional newsletters in the core, online banking payments in the core etc., these are features we need to grow and make more money.
PayPal is not the only accepted gateway. XF2 has support for Stripe out of the box, which I suppose is what you mean by "online banking payments".Why only PayPal?
