    That's actually an interesting perspective. It seems to be, that we would be spending money to REMOVE the most important features and functions of vb. Just doesn't make sense...there are not sufficient features in return to offer value. Unless there are some drastic changes in the near future, vb5 may have just been exactly what IPB and XF were waiting for as each may see increased sales as a result of vb5's mere existence.

    vb5 needs some major overhauling it would seem. I've not seen any positive feedback about it other than "I like this very small feature X" (such as the comments system). But no one pays $200 to replace their community with a mere comments system...which is more of a hack/mod that one would expect to find at vb.org.

    I dunno, I still have to say, I see absolutely no reason to even want to convert to this beta or anything close to it. It is just so little compared to what we are used to.

    they should release a finished product first why should people pay $249 to be testers
    The vB4.2 forums are generally considered as "decent", while blogs and CMS are still considered poor. But there has been some 2 years of history before that, where a lot of stuff has happened, including a rather harsh pre-sale. vB4.0 gold and a lot after that were a very poor experience for many users. As such, a higher discount for people who stayed with it would have been a sign of good will - and I feel they missed that opportunity by a mile.

Looking at the pricing, the price difference between a new license and upgrading an existing one, and what vB4 turned out to be - one could hope that it's a joke. Because personally, when I looked at the advertised prices, I felt rather undervalued as a loyal customer.

    I don't think the mobile apps will get updated now after seeing how much work is needs to be done on vb5.

    Like Zachery said, it's a beta product. Ideally not to be used on live sites just yet. Think of it like you are buying vBulletin 4 with a complimentary upgrade to vBulletin 5 Connect when you are ready.
