    I would hope v4.0 lasts as long as v3.0 did, however when you start charging for point releases only, you'll see them more often.

    This is what I'm afraid of:
    Right now they had us renew each year and could drag the development out as long as they could. When you switch the lic model, it makes sense from a buisness point to bang out point releases every year.....

    And with the way they've asked us to upgrade, who knows how much this will cost us each year.

    I read a post earlier (made by a vbteam member) that vb4 is likely to last for a few years before vb5 comes out taken that vb3 was released 5 years ago...

    Because it's already been announced to expect vBulletin 5 as simply the conclusion of the vB4 code project. And to expect it in 18 months. This announcement was 6 months ago.

    Even if we say 18 months from now, then the cost to the customer for vBulletin over the next 3 years is $195 + $195 = $390. Suite customers pay $250 + $250 or $500.

    To the original poster, you get a "visitor's pass" to the vB4 club until mid-2010. Then you are basically starting from scratch and have to pay $195 to get vB4. And another $195 for vB5. All within a very short period of time.

    Currently yearly renewal cost is $60/year. In order for vB4 -> vB5 cost to be similar, vB5 would have to be delayed until 2018.
