I'm probably gonna be sticking around a lot during the few days after the update is done, looking for bugs, replying to comments and questions, and so on. Then I'm gonna go back to doing some projects on 2.0, particularly kick-starting my plushie animation that I haven't continued for such a long time! ^^
I'll stay on the forums but I'll barely ever upload any 2.0 things. It's just too hard to use.
After the update, it would be worth posting in the forums about which 2.0 features are no very intuitive. We'll still be adding updates when the beta is released.
The main problems for is the fact that Norton hates nearly everything on 2.0 unless I whitelist all the many image hosts, flash servers and stuff that 2.0 uses that 1.4 didn't.
norton is terrible (and fits the criteria for a virus-intrusive, needs a specialised software to uninstall, and steals your money)
you really shouldnt rely on it as a god of antiviruses
Secondly, vector graphics are a nightmare to use. It's not possible to 'paint' unless you want a shape. I feel like 1.4's 16 bit-style graphics were great as you could edit easily and add detail.
you can import sprites from elsewhere
I know that if I miss out on 2.0 to stick by my good old loyal 1.4 - I'll miss out on the good things on 2.0, like larger storage space and cloud data.
you can import from 1.4 to 2.0 and add the 2.0 features on the website

So, yeah. The beta site is already down.
