I split of this conversation to this new thread on the forums.

It would definitely be good to see 2.0 come to reality. And for us to use what we have learned for the benefit of us all. It's even better when we can incorporate what community members share with us.

One of our core promises was to provide all users with a path to upgrade. It was the foundation for the development of the deprecated messages in debug. I have yet to comprehend what it will take to make a module compatible with 2.0, or if there is an upgrade from 1.3/1.4/1.5 to 2.x. Even with that commitment, 1.2 > 1.3 was a 'start over' for some webmasters (including me). There were modules that didn't make the transition and replacements need to be found (still). 1.3 > 1.4 dropped more modules because they weren't updated by their developers and they haven't been adopted by anyone else.

As a founder and one of the developers I take responsibility for this. I am also a stakeholder and have sites that rely on what we produce. Don't get me wrong - what's been happening with 2.0 is going to be a great thing. I don't have the skills to have done any of it. I also lack the ability to explain it.

I've gone off topic for this thread - I apologize. I'll move to another topic where we can continue the conversation.

I think it's safe to say that the ticket is gone on the mean time. It will be better to create a new one for that.

I would prefer to focus this change first for 2.0,eventually later it can be back ported to 1.5.x,but it is important to give precedence to the 2.0 branch now.

Search is an area where we can improve a lot, for example by making it easy on a core level to use external search providers as well, next to the standard search

I was looking for something else and came across this post. Things have moved around a bit and I couldn't find a branch or a ticket about this. We still can benefit from this approach. I'll add a new issue in github, unless someone can find the original

Just used part of this to move ticket #452 into testing - the 'no results' problem

Let's open a task for other search improvements - I haven't seen one recently.
