  • vBulletin 2.x.x Branch

    Since the 2.x.x is getting outdated I think it's time to archive the entire forums associated with 2.x.x.

    Over time I can imagine things will change and forums will be re-organized a little bit.

      How much longer will 2.x be downloadable? If Jelsoft is still supporting it, then all the better, but even Microsoft gave up on Windows 95, 98, and NT. As long as you allow it to be downloaded, it makes it difficult to justify such things as (for instance) providing hot fixes for and 2.x and archiving v2.x threads at .org.

      Curiousity question there more than anything else.

          You'd be amazed at how many sites use the vB 2.x.x branch as they don't like the ACP and things like that in the vB 3.x.x branch. So for these people who don't like find their way around, why should they have to use something they hate, or migrate to a new software because vBulletin won't support it or allow downloads anymore...

            yeah. Or maybe it has alot of hacks they like and cant be bothered moving over.

            Or even maybe the forum is popular but the admins are very busy

              Still, Jelsoft can't support the 2.x branch forever.
              Congratulations on the death of vBulletin, Internet Brands.

                There are also several sites still running vB 1.x. I don't know how many hacks were released in those days, but isn't it pretty silly to be running such an old version? I would imagine that many hacks that were available during the 2.x days have either became standard features, or simply plugins. 2.x continues to become more and more outdated, so while no one should be forced to upgrade, I don't think Jelsoft should have to continue to support such an old version, as well.

                  We do not provide support for vB1 outside of an upgrade path. vBulletin 2 is only security maintained at this point, as well as vB3.

                    Development for version 2.x and 3.0.x has stopped and the focus lies with supporting the latest stable versions of 3.0.x and 3.5.x and version 3.6.x is now in development and the new supported version will be 3.5.x and 3.6.x probably. If this means that 2.x will be dropped 100% is for the devs to decide and if 3.0.x support will be dropped with the introduction of 3.6 is also their choice. It has my support Nothing is final until they make an announcement about this.

                      I think vBulletin 2.x.x should still be supported, but only when needed... Just keep the forums and allow support if needed.

                        We don't decline support if people ask. But at one point it will be too outdated to provide support too. Users who then require support will be recommend to upgrade to get proper support, and they can read the manual + support threads that are archived.
