    How long will it be, more or less, before we get a stable version that can run on a live forum? Any guidance will be helpful. :-)

    The beta needs a bit of work still to run these forums. I thought that was apparent with the performance issues that we're working on.

    I mean using the database from these forums to update the beta forums, keeping these forums running the latest released version.

    I understand you don't update production forums with beta software. I was just interested in seeing what vB5 looks like when updated with real data and content. As well as what issues you may see (at this time) during said update.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    It would also be helpful to have a post with some background notes regarding any current issues with the update. Like time it took, how they think it would effect someone trying to do the same thing, what's gotten better and what is still need a look at under the hood (core code and upgrade script(s) ......

    We could also compare speed, search and durability of said product from an apples to apples comparison and vB could show off why they feel their customers would want to upgrade.
    We will upgrade vBulletin.com/forums when we feel the software is ready for it. Right now in the current beta state, we recommend that customers use it for testing and not live sites. Upgrading vBulletin.com/forums at this time would not be appropriate.

    I'll see if I can get a blog from the QA people testing the upgrades on the experience.

    If i buy a software product for my company, i'm able to see a demo of that.
    Even a look in the admin cp.

    If vb make that possible i think that non vb users are more willing to use vb.
    And existing vb users maybe want to upgrade.

    Buth i think its not good to see a naked vb5 on the demo for a couple of months.
    The primary elements of vBulletin 4.2 that will not be in the 5.0 version of vBulletin 5 Connect are CMS/article publishing, Mobile Suite, the Facebook app, paid subscriptions and non-English versions of the product. These components will be released as follows.
