Growing Competition to Vanilla
I was researching about changes in the BB software industry, the past week. Turns out, unlike 3-4 years in the past, there are a lot of upcoming Community or forum software which are trying to revolutionize online communities.
Discourse, NodeBB are to name a few. I have tried both of them. They are good, but at its infancy. They have a lot of catching up to do to Vanilla and PHPBB when it comes to stability and customization (themes and plugins) availability, but they are reaching that stable state.
It would be really awesome to see Vanilla (Open source Project) releases and updates happening every month. The github page does not seem to mention the expected release date for 2.3 (https://github.com/vanilla/vanilla/milestones)
Anyways, what you guy n' girls think? tried any of these so called "revolutionary" apps?
