System for version compatibility of included plugins
Great job on 2.1! A lot of improvements!
I'd like to ask about the bundled plugins in the (stable) releases of Vanilla.
The release of 2.1 seems to include several plugins that is not compatible with Vanilla 2.1. For example the Facebook and Twitter connect plugins, as well as others. This has also been the case with previous (stable) releases of Vanilla.
What is the system for what gets included in the stable releases plugin-wise. Is it smart to bundle plugins at all if the compatibility can't be secured?
I often try to sell in vanilla as the forum of choice to my customers, but this has long been a major hassle that often makes them question the choice ("but it doesn't work!"). This is especially problematic since the facebook plugin is not availiable in the general addon catalog.
How is this step thought of in the dev process? If it is not thought of, I would consider stop bundling plugins at all in the Open Source releases and make them availiable for download in the Addons Library. This could of course be thought out as a "buy a paid plan", but I don't believe that. Thoughts on this?
