I'm not complaining. Just would like to know when to expect the new forum. I understand that you have problaby run into issues and are in the process of adding new features.

Is it going to be this year or maybe early next year?

Not looking good. It was meant to come around February I think? So, it's delayed by quite a bit already.. I really hope it's worth the wait and all the issues that could be solved in the meantime (but aren't)..

I don't think we will have any stable / tested / "final" version before late 2015 or ealy 2016 but there isn't any official ETA at the moment.

NB : I'm not part of the team that is working on epochtalk, I don't have any special infos from theymos or somebody else, that's just my opinion regarding the current status of the software, the work that has been done so far, the github repo history and my fellings about this!
Also I hope that I'll be wrong and that epochtalk will be ready before the end of the year / 2016.

Just hoping the forum will be nice and polished! I know I'll probably hate it for the first few weeks like I did with any other forum software I've used. But I will grow on me most likely.

I don't care when the forum comes out I would prefer to have a polished and slick forum rather than a rushed and broken forum.

I would say a realistic date would probably be mid-late 2016.

I think it is almost completed except design. Last commit in Epochtalk repo is 1 day old, last commit in Emailer and Validator repos are 1 month old and all other repos are ~3-5 months old.

I think we can expect an aplha/beta in a few months. Mistake corrected. Thanks to kcud_dab!

Yes, a beta was to be released in February.

You told us "1-3 months" 1 month ago and I already told you that giving an ETA isn't a game / simple... even the slickage team isn't able to give us an ETA so I can't see how you could! Same for the people who are currently testing the current version (like me) -> we don't have any ETA to share as we don't know!
If you don't know, just don't say anything instead of making up stuffs!

A reply for these 2 posts:

Exactly, maybe it is better to don't expect the new forum software .... it will be relly awesome if it will release and no one know the 'date' (like a surprise).

Yeah, they said it would come out around early spring (or at least something would be released).
I'm hoping that they'll release it this year before the summer ends, but we haven't been updated that much recently, so something tells me that it might take a bit longer.  Honestly though, I like the simplicity of this forum.

I'm not sure if an exact date was ever given other than 'early next year' (said last year) but people kept mentioning February for some reason. It's being tested now so it hopefully shouldn't be too long but I'd rather it be extensively tested and made sure it's secure because releasing it with bugs could be disastrous especially if people's accounts are easily compromised in some way.

This is the first time I've heard of this, but now I can't wait to have this thing gone. It feels so outdated and old
What was supposed to be the focus of the new one?

Just to be an improvement and a forum tailored to the needs of the admins. The specifics of what was requested can be found here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=523070.0

I hope the new forum is worth the time and money we're spending on it. Monthly $100k fees is no joke.

Yeah, that's Slickage's $100k monthly fee. The amounts aren't exact, though. I send approximately the correct amount to an intermediate wallet of my own, and then it gets sent to Slickage via Coinbase.

The total cost will probably be around $1.5 million, which is more than I'd hoped, though not entirely unexpected.

I remember seeing a post saying Beta will be available in early 2015. Now, it is about June.. I wonder when will Beta be released. Or maybe the administrators and some others is having closed beta.

It's a general purpose forum that's intended to compete with others. Once the theme engine is in place, we'll be able to get more involvement from the public. For now, you can check out the source. On top of that a beta is being evaluated with the staff at this point so please sit tight.

Wow... 100k each month! That's quite an insane amount.

Don't get your expectations too high. I don't think it's going to be anything revolutionary by the looks of the requirements that theymos has given to the public, and it seems Slickage(?) is building the core, the very foundations of the software and it will be expanded upon in the future by the public.

The features being introduced look to be a more personalised forum to Bitcoiners and theymos, rather than something to blow anyone out of the water. I'm not saying it's going to be terrible either, I'm just saying that simple machines, was even barer in features when it was first released and was very buggy. So don't expect a miracle and everything clean sailing from the time it's released to the public.  Of course, we all have certain expectations because of the price tag, which I don't know if I agree with although, I've never really been in the market for building a forum engine from the very scratch so wouldn't know the going price, I do know it's a hell of a lot of money though.

I'm just hoping we won't go over the top with features, I prefer simple machines to the alternatives because of it's basic and minimalistic feel. It seems theymos also shares this attitude.  I really dislike modern forums because of the lack of content that each page displays, instead it's fancy graphics and blank space which I find unbearable. Hopefully, it's not going to be anything like disclouse. The staff who are beta testing at the moment probably have the best idea of how it's going and what to expect. I know we'll be seeing a lot of meta threads when it is finally released, regardless of the state of the software.

Thanks all for the replies. I guess we won't be seeing it for awhile at least a few months anyway. I've read this thread here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1020023.0

which I assume theymos would need to put up a reminder in the news area of this forum and also a thread in meta telling people to change their emails in advance before chaning the forum.
