The vB4 product was thought to be the worst forum product available for purchase ever released, until vB5.
All products have bugs, and there are attempts to remove them. vB5 has had 28 BETA releases, and still has obvious "top of the fold" bugs, and has less features than vB4.
Instead of working on the bugs, and speed issues, a full assault on marketing and PR spin has started.
As of 2/25/2013, Lawrence Cole (chief Xtreme Marketing guru) has failed to make any public announcement about vB5's release. He even fails to call the release "Gold", just more simply "Out Of Beta". These are private comments to registered customers, not available to the general public.
It's clear that vBulletin is content to take money from non-English reading customers, and eventually, more money from them in support licenses.
