    Start a poll and find out.

    I rested on an older VB license for some time, which ran very well to this point. I'll be upgrading to VB4.0 and run it to death as well. Cost wise, that hasn't been bad considering the functionality, support, and such. I see a lot of value in the software with the new release, so I'll pony up the cash. When VB5 comes around, I'll evaluate what's there and see if it is worth it then.

    It's all just a choice anyway.

    guys are you kidding? how can be compare between Microsoft and vbulletin?

    I guess build an operating system will never be a case to compare with a php scripts

    may a groups of coders can do better than vb4

    For example this one
    MS09-046 Has a critical update for Windows 2000. It was updated on October 14th 2009.

    Microsoft has several thousand people working on Windows. We have about 25 people working on vBulletin. There has to be reason. The support schedule here hasn't changed in roughly 5 years. We didn't even have security patches until 3.6.X. Before that you had to perform a complete upgrade. If your license wasn't up to date, you had to upgrade even if it was 3.5.1 to 3.5.2.

    Once we have v4.0, v4.1, v4.2 (or v4.0, v4.1, v5.0) vb3 wouldn't be supported.
    By the time vB 4.1 or 4.2 comes out, 3.x will be very long in the tooth. How long do you think is a reasonable time to expect them to devote resources to keeping it secure?

    They changed what they wanted to do for vb4. It was meant to be a much bigger re-write. They are saving that for V5 now. They want to get their quickly.

    While they've said 18 months, I agree that is perhaps too soon given the history, however, it's what they want to target.

    This thread indicates 3.6 was introduced August 2006
    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=268829

    This thread indicates end of life for 3.6 for bug fixes was Oct 2008
    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=268829

    So does that mean that the 3.6 version was supported 26 months? After which security patches would be provided, but no bug fixes?

    That makes no sense. Zero, Nada, Zilch.

    They could maintain 4.x for 5 or even 10 years if they choose to, even if 10.x was out.

    I hope it won't be so fast. Just upgrading between point releases to keep board current and secure for those with custom mods, skins, language, etc.. will be THE job.

    Wasn't it mentioned here they expect only two or so point releases?

    If You Were Building your First Site Right Now, Would You Use vB4 or vB5?
    by Rivka
    Ok I am just now learning and building a site. I have been reading and learning my install of vb4 for the last 2 months, i have a lot of learning to go. I currently do not know when My site will go live,...
    vb4 - Stick with what's already released & works
    66.67%
    26
    Both - set them up side by side, if the vB5 is gold by the time you want to go life, great, otherwise fall back to vB4
    10.26%
    4
    vB5 - Might as well put the time and effort into setting it all up once
    23.08%
