1.8 Next development steps ("1.10")
#21
Quote:The decision to switch to package-based development and distribution (i.e. MyBB 2.0), increasing quality and development efficiency (and decreasing the number of issues by doing so) was based on technical experience alone when the turning down of feature requests because of 1.x limitations is excluded; this is not chasing the next shiny thing.

Meh, I get it. Just not sure if it's more important than a responsive theme and maybe just start with Twig or another theme package. I'm already catching a lot of crap at HF for example for making a huge leap in my 1.8x upgrade. You can expect similar backlash from the MyBB community if you alter too much at once. That's just my experience and opinion.

Quote:The current mailing system has been, and still is, problematic and replacing it with a well-tested alternative would eliminate a class of issues associated with it.

Mail system I can agree with. Easy enough to implement with almost no changes to plugins or the site functionality. One of the easy ones imho.

Quote:Highly difficult without a proper templating engine (Twig was chosen); limitations of the current one is often mentioned by theme creators.

Yes, Twig is nice, I've used it. No complaints about the choice.

Quote:Keeping up to date with constantly evolving standards is difficult, but maintaining support for versions and code that have been deprecated/reached end of life (eg: PHP 5.2, 5.3, 5.4) several years back isn't the answer either.

I won't make that argument either. I think software standards should take a lead from services standards. IMHO if you keep up to date with services then everything else will fall into place. Most of the home based MyBB admins are likely not running their own servers and use shared hosting. It would be good for MyBB to have the minimum requirements updated. Sysadmins should be skilled enough to deal with whatever MyBB does.
