So I'm fairly excited about the next update of our forum software (xenforo 2.1), and I decided to quickly list a few of the upcoming features that I think you'll be excited about as well.
clicking on any of those links will take you to the official xenforo update page with more information. the above features the the most relevant to most users here, but for a complete list of new features, look here.

the short version is that you'll be able to use bbcode on profiles (including adding videos/music/pics/etc), bookmarks and reactions (i.e. post ratings) are becoming a core part of the software (instead of using an addon) and will be much easier to use for those on mobile devices, and push notifcations will make StP more 'app like' in that you'll get notifications instantly sent to your phone when someone replies or tags you in a post (much like facebook). of course you'll be able to opt out of that (and it won't work on apple devices cause apple is stupid).

not sure what the ETA is, but shouldn't be more than a few weeks out since this has already been released as a beta and developers are already releasing compatible addons. if you have questions about any of these features, just let me know and i'll be happy to explain them in more detail.

Just to update anyone curious, the next version of xenforo that is bringing those features i listed in the OP is in version beta 5, so while there's no ETA on when it's going to be ready, I would expect it to come out in about another month or so.
