4th blogpost in 3 days, we’re going hard in April! Anyway, I would like to talk about something you might have noticed in ModernBB 3.1 and in our announcement for ModernBB 3.2 and 3.3: we’re revamping some serious stuff in our forum software. Is this a coincidence or…
Well, no. It isn’t. As you know, we were planning a rebuilded forum software, named Vanellope. But we stopped development of it when we started working on ModernBB 3.1, which backported the new topic view. And that’s exactly what’s going to happen now everywhere else. Version by version, you will see ModernBB switch to a new design. Page by page. What version of ModernBB is going to redesign what? Here’s a list:
|ModernBB 3.1||– Topic view (part 1)|
|ModernBB 3.2||– Profile
– User list (part 1)
– Topic view (part 2)
|ModernBB 3.3||– Backstage|
|ModernBB 3.4||– Index
– Forum view
|ModernBB 3.5||– Installation
– User list (part 2)
Why are we doing this? Because it’s time to reimagen the way forums are designed. Why not all at once? Because we simply don’t want to create one big redesign release. We want you guys to be able to play around with the new stuff whenever it’s finished. Are you guys going to be able to follow the above scheme? If you ask that, you don’t know us. Of course we wont. Through this is the planning now. Tomorrow it could be different.
In other news, expect ModernBB 3.1.1 to be released somewhere in the next 7 days.
