That's a solid framework, but that's also one hell of a learning curve.

If I were going for a feature packed framework, I'd go with Symfony 2. If I were going for a framework with large communities and tons of support, then I'd go with CI or Yii. If I were going for performance, I'd go with Lithium (or possibly a lesser known Hydrogen, which is really just a library at this point, and not a framework, per se). If I wanted a decent balance of performance and community support, I'd go with Kohana (or possibly newcomer Fuel, which is gaining momentum).
Yii is one of the fastest frameworks available and in my opinion Kohana is usually slower than Yii. I never tried Lithium because it was born for PHP 5.3+ and when I looked for a PHP framework, PHP 5.3 wasn't common. However it doesn't seem as feature complete as Yii. I tried Symfony and I can say that YAML sucks, however I didn't try Symfony2 yet. Overall my choice was Yii: fast, feature rich, if it lacks something there are tons of extensions available, large community and actively developed.

Quote:Yii is among the best performing frameworks out there (though without caching, it's quite sluggish).
Yii using yiilite with caching (i.e. APC) is extremely fast, but without caching (so without yiilite, because you usually use yiilite when caching is available) it's still pretty fast.

Will there be a script to convert old templates for use with mybb 2.0? Vbulletin offers one of these and it... works.. barely.. but it does convert.

  • Yii will be the php framework used for MyBB 2.0.
  • Twig will be the template engine.
  • 2.0 will use jquery(also use by yii as default js library).
  • SEO friendly Url(as yii already provide easy way to do this).
  • A WYSIWYG editor will be included with the option of disabling at the admin and user levels.
  • A new theme
    -Will include css based buttons
  • An API will be available to make integration easier.
  • Improved User CP
  • Conversation PMs
  • New Profiles
  • Mobile Functionality
  • There will be modal boxes in 2.0 as Matt wrote in this post.
  • Threaded mode will be removed.
Off the top of my head that's all I can think of that has been said to be for sure so far. Again, if I missed something let me know Wink(Please provide a link to the staff members post).

I doubt it as there will be a whole new template system and unlike vb3 to vb4 this will be a full rewrite.

If they don't I'm going to create a module for them. Imho, I think it's going to be a missed feature.
No longer involved in the MyBB project.

You haven't seen what we're replacing them with. Much better, IMHO.
