You're welcome, I also understand how it's like to wait without knowing for how long.
I can assure you though that it'll be worth the wait, because when we do add those features we'll give it the same care and attention we've put into everything else so far. No half-arsed solutions.
But since we do lack many features most consider basic, that's why we make migrating to Ninjaboard so easy. So that people don't have to decide today if they are to use Ninjaboard until it's satisfying their needs, or go with something else with no option to use Ninjaboard in the future.
That's why we recommend people to use a forum that have all the features they need, and then migrate to Ninjaboard with a single click when we can match.
It's a bit too early to say when 1.2 will come out, all I can say is that the first alpha will come this week, and that the first beta will likely come two weeks after.
The reason why it's hard to tell is because 1.2 will need to run on both Joomla 1.5 and 1.6, and the time it takes to test 1.6 all depends on the availability of our beta testers and the amount of code breaking.
When the alpha comes we'll be able to say more about the timeline, but as it is now it's kinda like predicting the weather next week by looking at the clouds in the sky today.
I hope it helps answering your questions, and thank you for your interest in Ninjaboard.
