Been a while since I touched yaDIS but at the time I found Zappiti easier to use (and overall a better product for my needs then yaDIS). All comes down to personal preference though
They said that they will add some "value added functionalities" and gave as examples : subtitles auto-download, movie trailers, parental control. Also said that there will be some free add-ons like a cover zoom when browsing the cover wall (i guess that they just find out the "scale=X" syntax).
regarding the difference between yadis/zappiti, I can perfectly understand that you prefer one over the other, both being quite different in their look and feel (menus vs icons mainly). But i don't see any major over complexity (or even difference) in the way the work. Basically, the only tricky thing could be the path definition, and both are working in the same way from what I know (and this is something you just do once in a while, just for set up and then forget about it).
So if you see something different that really bother you in yadis, tell me, i will report this to Fred and see what's he can do about it
