Modification De La Licence Ipb 1.2

Recommended Posts


Avant toute chose je tiens à préciser qu'IPB sous cette nouvelle licence est et reste gratuit pour une utilisation complète et illimitée et que le support gratuit sur le site anglais est toujours possible mais pas assuré. (Vous n'y aurez pas forcément une réponse et pas forcément rapidement)


J'ai pas le temps de tout vous traduire donc je vous poste le texte anglais et vous traduirais uniquement l'essentiel en dessous <_<


Invision Power Board is a professional quality software application and we felt the free label it has been distributed under does not do it justice. To that end, we have consolidated some of our support plans into a new licence to allow us to release 1.2 as a commercial shareware application. This gives us the best of both worlds - an easy to use registration system providing commercial services for our customers while still keeping the ability to use it for free for those who do not need special services.


The new license will feature an unlimited free trial period in which you may use the board for as long as you wish without registering. Registration comes with technical support from our staff and other special services and incentives.


Important Notes

Invision Power Board being operated under the unlimited trial period is not crippled in any way.

The trial period is for an unlimited time. This means you do not have to register or pay any money if you do not want. You can still use our software for free for an unlimited amount of time if you so choose.

Any current Priority Support or Managed Care customers will automatically received a registration code when version 1.2 is released.

Customers who have already purchased a copyright removal license will be able to use that license in 1.2 as well.

Free support will still be available on our forums but only registered customers will have guaranteed support.

Although the registered version is a yearly fee, if you choose not to renew your registration after one year your board will remain completely functional.

Why the change? We are providing a commercial-quality application and want to be able to offer commercial-quality services to go with it. You can still use the software for free if you wish but registration has great advantages to the unlimited free trial. This change will, as stated above, allow Invision Power Services, Inc. the ability to offer the best of both worlds: the grace of free and the seriousness of commercial in one package.


Invision Power Board 1.2 is entering the final stage of development. We're currently finishing off the final feature, the member warning system before we change status from alpha to beta.


We anticipate at least a week of internal team testing to ensure that the software is stable and secure before it's deployed in a public beta release.


Invision Power Board 1.2 enhances and refines many of the existing features and adds a new suite of tools designed to make the administrators job easier with finite banning and suspension, email logs and the warning system. Moderators will find the new multi-moderation feature very helpful in managing a lot of topics without having to repeat the same tasks. The board user will find the revamped messenger easier to use and the user control panel more refined.


I would like to take a moment to reflect on how far we've all come in the past year. I've always seen Invision Power Board as a communal project and the product is a testament to the special relationship we have. I am proud to be releasing v1.2 under a shareware based licence as I believe that the product you've helped to create deserves more than to be discarded as "just a free board". Of course, we recognise that your help and support has played a very big part of our development which is why we're keen that you can still download and use Invision Power Board v1.2 for free and in an unlimited and uncrippled capacity.


Thank you for your patience, the wait is almost over.


Donc en résumé IPB passe en shareware :

Inscription = support technique privé via leur système de ticket ou via téléphone (uniquement pour les USA et UK), services (mise à jour, installation), addons (remise sur l'achat de plug ins, Chat IP par exemple) etc.... pour un montant annuel $59.95 (à renouveller tous les ans)


Suppression du Copyright = $199 (à payer une seule fois)


Mais IPB reste gratuit et complet pour une utilisation illimitée ca ne change donc pas grand chose pour les utilisateurs francophones d'IPB, le support vous le cherchez ici je pense donc le support gratuit anglais ne vous concerne pas trop :huh:


Si vous êtes inquiets si vous avez des questions libre à vous de créer un sujet dans le forum divers pour en débattre.
