With the latest development update from Kier and Company, many of the needed and missing features ,which ship with other platforms by default, will be available this summer.  I believe this is the update where forum owners will, if the haven’t already, be starting to evaluate the possibility of changing their forum software to XenForo.  Many have held out due to the lack of features in XenForo.

Developers have narrowed the gap in quick fashion the last few months since Xenforo was declared stable, however, the announced additions have not been released as of yet.  Look out, the tables may be turning quickly.
