We had a few complaints from users that we were releasing products too quickly; people were actually skipping upgrades because they didn't care for the frequency. With the 4.8 releases I felt we had reached a point where we needed to slow down a little, let the code stabilize and then work on the next version. As Chuck said, he's done more additional integrations which we'll be releasing along with some minor fixes.
For the next update, we're looking at even tighter integrations with our forums - we already support signatures and avatars, but would like to go further and support smilies, markup code and special features (like dropdown boxes in vb3). But, as I learned trying to release three products at once, I'd rather focus on one update at a time. A preview of work for vB3 templates
