vBulletin 4.0 will not be a rewrite of the whole system. It has just some improvements but the core will not be updated. Most important factor for me is not complete. I am highly dissapointed with the annoucement.
If I think Lizard King is refering to this post...

That isn't what the announcement says at all. The core of vBulletin 4.0 will be rewritten but it will be refactored in steps instead of in one interation. What will be released in the Spring will have several core pieces of the backend refactored. Much of the backend is already in an an object oriented approach.

The plus side of this is that Addon Authors can progress their products at the same time and more of the current addons will continue to work after the release. Though its doubtful any style modifications or styles will continue to work.

We will go for the new 4.0 to our new website launch in Q2 2009, hopefully there won´t be that much bugs by then as you guys think that it will be

We hold our finger crossed for a better application in order to what we have seen in the VBseo addon.

sounds like alot of good changes..... i really do hope multiple forums sharing a single userbase is finally supported natively. i still have yet to find something that works well enough for me to use.

very excited to see a cms coming though.... the front ends have always lacked imo.

Visuals are arguably an equal or perhaps greater component to the popularity of vBulletin than mods. I hope us style producers get some consideration and advance help in this arena and not thrown under the bus, so to speak...we have long memories

Arguably, with a semantic layout, you would have more control and an easier way of applying style to a vBulletin page than you do now.

So I can't use my current style anymore in 4.0? Was also wondering, if I am using vbadvanced, will those modules also be available within the new CMS?

Doubtful.

In the vBulletin CMS? Doubtful. It doesn't have anything to do with vBAdvanced.

Maybe he meant modules that provide similar functions ?

So far from the sounds of it this upgrade should be called vBulletin 3.9 not 4.0.

I am kind of disappointed with the announcement.

I'm worried it's becoming a jack of all trades, master of none. It was the best forum software about a year ago. I'm not so sure now. Hopefully search will improve from being the total embarrassment it is now.

I could do without cms/seo totally - I've seen vb's take on blogs so I dread to think what they think is a good cms. If the seo cuts down on stupid duplicate content then great - friendly urls don't bother me or google. Hopefully the improved templating system will make it easier to use the vb engine without their shitty bodywork.
