Default Re: Isn't vbulletin 4.0 out?

I purchased 4.0 during the pre release "sale", after almost 10 months and close to $200 gone, I won't upgrade my own forums. 4.0 is worst then hmmmmm lets see how can I put this. A 1977 Pinto or for the PC gamers Medal of Honor Airborne.

Most of the developers who made vBulletin, great have left the company, they (being IB the new owners of vB) a lot of issues right now trying to do anything right. The new pieces of vB (blog and CMS) don't work correctly. Every small update brakes god knows how many template functions, they introduce more bugs when trying to fix old ones.

I don't see many going the vB4, large sites like the AV forums are moving away from vB after they got burned upgrading .

Hell Internet Brands (IB) own sites don't run vB4. I think out of the over 200 self owned sites about 2 or 3 just got updated to v4.
