  • Plan for a 1.9.0 release as the next major release. This release would:
    • Bump required PHP vesion to PHP 7.0 in anticipation for the future. [DONE]
    • Implement Twig as a template engine. [IN-PROGRESS]
    • Introduce Composer to manage 3rd party dependencies and provide autoloading [DONE]
    • Introduce the SwiftMailer library to handle the sending of emails, fixing compatibiltiy issues with different SMTP hosts. [DONE]
    • Introduce a brand new theme which would be fully responsive and mobile ready. [IN-PROGRESS]
  • It would be great if this 1.9 version were to be released in the next few months. I love this platform but I hate that it's not mobile friendly. It has detrimental effects on SE rankings, traffic and of course earnings.
  • I agree that there is a real emergency for the responsive design.  I don't think waiting is an option if MyBB wants to remain relevant going forward.  I think they risk everyone moving to another software or a fork.  

    Given the many years wait for 2.0 I don't think much patience is left from the community. 1.8x imho was a fail.  Jquery was added and some template changes.  Other than that it's not a better experience for users.  It's full of bugs and is not up to standards even when it was released. 

    If MyBB doesn't step on the gas and get a truly responsive design in a relatively fast time frame I don't see how MyBB is going to keep their relevance in the forum software realm.  If it's going to take a year to get this done then why bother at all? 

    Anyone can do a responsive design on MyBB.  It can be done quickly.  Within weeks even.  If adding Twig is going to slow the process down then skip that part of it.  There already designs for MyBB which are responsive but these break updates and plugins. 

    Please please please....stop all other work and just focus on redesigning the pages to be responsive.  If you did that everything else will fall into place.  If you keep up this lack of momentum MyBB is going to become a dinosaur and extinct.
