Well I'm curious to know if XenForo has a set path or goal in mind such as being the cheapest available forum software? Will XenForo be available for beta testing to the public then those who beta test will have an option to buy a license when it goes gold? What will XenForo's style system hold for those who enjoy creating styles?
That is 3 questions that I combined. Will be testing the search feature soon to see the display page but haven't thought of anything specifically to search for.
XF will be competitively priced to vB and IPB, and beta testing will be available to the public (licensing and prices will be announced before, likely with a full list of features you should expect in v1).
Kier has yet to make a full comment on the style system, and a full explanation of it will come in due time.
Yeah, it's an excellent way to beta test the software. Only one downfall with this is that users aren't able to test out the admin functions, and turn on functions / features which may be turned off by admins here.
