I stopped at the SF4 forums, after intentionally staying away for a while.
I'm still glad we cancelled our 3.7 upgrade. Although I'm confident that the 4/5-version will become an altogether great product at some point in time.
@Raj, I was also really puzzled, from the integral forum that went missing for such a long time. Info has not been good along this line. I realize that a vendor need to change the direction of products and activities for the revenue, but this issue does not exactly help Sitefinity in terms of predictability.
@Georgi, regarding your answer to Raj. I don't agree that the marketplace product C.T.Forums is an excellent
solution. It might be good
, even sufficient
for a number of sites, but it has far
from the rich set of features that you find in several open source forums.
On the other hand, I would be surprised if the YAF forums integration that was promised with 4.1, actually ships with 4.3
. The many delays of the official integration document makes it easy to think, that Sitefinity does not yet handle custom ASP.NET Membership & Role Providers properly.
Although I expressed some concerns that I posted to the C.T. guys
, you are probably kind of right, this is really the best
option for SF4.
Anyway, I have hopes for the 4.3. Will take a close look.
