    Speak for yourself.

    Well, so much for the one year of free upgrades.

    Kind of makes common sense to me that. Start of a new year -and a new project on a new version.

    I don't think you realise how much work a major version requires. It requires recoding most major systems in vB such as admincp, pm system, poll system, template system, making a new skin, new graphics and everything else that needs recoding . Plus all the testing and quality control that have to go on after that.

    Version numbers don't really mean anything, I'm more interested in what's added/tuned/enhanced.

    Hey - doesn't hurt to try right? :P
    But yeah - The features announcement looks AWESOME!
