Further information regarding Redux has been added to the original post, as follows:
UPDATE: There was a minor issue with Redux, which has been fixed in version 3.5.4, now available from the WordPress plugin directory. Please update your items to use this version.
Lead dev of Redux here. This issue ONLY happened with devs used the WordPress.org plugin. The GitHub and Builder versions never had this issue.
The primary concern was SVN doesn’t delete files if they’re not there. You need to manually specify that, much to our dismay.
Unless you’re using a Redux validation, they’re going to force you to. Sometimes even if you’re using the Redux validation too, hah. IE, yes.
Google alerts. If google sees it, so do I.

If you use a redux validation the code is often escaped too. But yes, best practice is to escape on the front-end.

@pixeful – We’ve actually been around for a very long time. The welcome.php stuff is brand new and was on our development branch. I don’t think you can judge us for that.
Everyone else, we’re more than willing to fix anything and make it compliant. We run themecheck and ensure everything is as it should be. If there is an issue let us know and we’ll resolve it.
P.S. Check out 3.5.0. http://demo.redux.io
What @ckissi is asking for is more of a dynamic field builder, not a pre-configured group of fields.
You can see the demo of the Repeater extension here: http://demo.redux.io/wp-admin/admin.php?page=redux_extensions&tab=9
We haven’t quite yet made a form builder. We have a repeater extension/field that you could modify, but you’d have to do the dynamic stuff. It just makes blocks repeatable…
Amazing work! Thanks for the effort!
Redux has some video tutorials up. We have some of the top themes on TF.
We also have extensive documentation and our development hasn’t become stagnant.
SMOF hasn’t been updated for years, and VafPress (last I heard) was losing its lead developers.
Titan Framework is pretty active, though.
Options Framework is active, but minimal.
The best thing about Option Tree is it has a built in panel builder, but it’s hard to port that to a PHP class.
So yea. I’m the lead dev of Redux, but there are lots of options out there. It’s just what you want.
But these developers like Redux: http://reduxframework.com/showcase/envato
