Hi,

I am doing some research on integrating JForum in several websites. In terms of features, JForum seems to be one of the best Java forums that is available now.

However, before fixing myself to JForum 2.1.7, I was wondering about future developments. Will JForum 3 remain compatible with the JForum 2.1 database? Naturally, JForum 3 will be based on new technologies, and will maybe contain several new features. The interesting question is whether the datamodels of JForum 2 and JForum 3 are (and will remain) compatible, and whether a migration from JForum 2 to JForum 3 will be straightforward.

Will JForum 2.1.7 be maintained, for example with regard to possible security flaws?

Is there a clear roadmap, besides the roadmap in Jira, which is not very detailed. And does the roadmap for JForum 3 contain any target dates, for example for a first alpha release?

Yours sincerely,

Eelco.

Yes, JForum 3 schema will be compatible with current versions of JForum. Of course there will be changes here and there, but that already happens in every new release of JForum, and we always provice upgrade scripts.

JForum 2.1.8 - the next release - is being developed full time right now, but contains cool things like Lucene as search engine.

The idea was to be working full time on JForum 3 for a while, but many factors prevented that from happening.

As when JForum 2.1.8 gets released, we will focus on JForum 3, and new releases of the 2.x series will be only to fix major problems, if necessary.
