Xen Factory product policy for XenForo 2

Dear customers,

As XenForo 2 is on the verge of being released of closing to a stable release, many of you may wondering what is our policy of updates and pricing for that new version and you are absolutely right to do so.

Now that we are ready to start releasing some xF2 products, it's time for us to answer some of the questions you may have.

Question
Xen-Factory, are you going to update your add-ons to XenForo 2 ?

Answer
Absolutely ! Though this will require some work as you may know since XenForo developers changed drastically the core code. But we have no intention to let you down !

However, we have performed a detailed review of our products policy and we have decided that not all of our add-ons were going to be ported to XenForo 2, either because they are now core features or because we feel these products raised low interests among our customers. Anyhow, if one of the abandoned product is of interest for you and you want to fund its portage don't hesitate to contact us.

Here below is the list of our add-ons with the information on wether or not each of them is going to be ported:
  • Apple App Store BBCode: May be ported if funded

Question
Xen-Factory, are you going to continue supporting the XenForo 1 version of your add-ons ?

Answer
Of course we will ! Once again, as I said we are not going to let you down. We are going to provide continuing support to our XenForo 1 add-ons as long as XenForo is supporting the 1.X branch.

However, as XenForo 2 is the new standard, we will drop new features implementation on the XenForo 1 version and only focus on bug fixes releases.


Question
Xen-Factory, I am the happy owner of a license from one of the products you are going to port to XenForo 2, what will happen with my license ?

Answer
Fair point ! Well, as you may know, due to the significant changes done to the XenForo core code, add-ons need to be fully rewritten. Per consequence, we have decided that license upgrade from the XenForo 1 version to the XenForo 2 version of our add-ons won't be free.

But don't worry, we are of course reserving a special offer to our existing customers. Mostly for all of our XenForo 2 add-ons, if you purchased a license of the XenForo 1 add-on version before the 23/02/2019 (when we started offering discount on all our XF1 products), we will be offering a 50% discount on the purchase price. I said "mostly" on purpose as we can't provide such a discount on our low cost add-ons.

Question
Understood. But Xen-Factory, how can I benefit from the 50% discount ?

Answer
Unfortunately, we have to process these requests manually. So you just need to go here and create a new thread with your purchase request and don't forget to state your PayPal email address so that we can send you the payment request.

Once we have received your payment, we will add the license to your account and you will be able to download it from your licenses area.



This is the end of our Q&A thread related to our XenForo 2 policy, if you have any question on the points here above or about any other topic related to this migration to XenForo 2, don't hesitate to ask.

Best Regards,
The Xen-Factory staff

So I own RM Marketplace, does this mean I'll get the one ported for XF 2.0 as a free upgrade?

No, for RM Marketplace there is no specific statement as I was wondering at that time wether I would make important changes or not.
But as a matter of fact, I'll port it iso-functionnalities.

So RM Marketplace will fall into the 50% discount bucket.
Due to the level of work involved in the porting of add-ons, we are not providing 100% free updates to xF2.

Btw, RM Marketplace porting is currently on-going.

Oh right, thank you for clarifying.

Any ETA? I understand it is probably a tedious task, I cant release my site without it :(
