Vanilla 2 Released
Two years ago we took another look at Vanilla and realized there was still an immense amount of work to be done in the community discussion space. Last year Todd Burry, one of my closest friends, joined me on the project, and since then we’ve attended the TechStars program in Boulder Colorado, raised a seed round for the company, hired staff, and we have been working on Vanilla full-time – all with the goal of getting to this day: the day we present you with Vanilla 2.
Vanilla 2 brings you more of the great user experience you tasted with Vanilla 1, and also allows addon developers to do more than they’ve ever been able to do before. Today, on the day of it’s release, there are already 40 addons available that were created by the Vanilla community developers. The addon turnaround has already been awe-inspiring, but with this official release we know we will be wowed by what this community can accomplish.
Vanilla 2 is more than forum software, it is built with the goal of helping communities grow by any means necessary: SEO optimization, participation-driving custom features, or simply a better user experience.
