Does this integrate with BuddyPress?

Try resaving your permalinks.
Is there an importer from a 1.0 installation?
A first attempt is included, and it needs testing. That’s where you come in!
Where can I contribute translations
Where is the documentation?
In the code itself right now. There’s not a lot of sense in creating documentation for pre-release software, as anything is subject to change. There will be a bbPress codex coming soon after release, so sit tight.
Why can my admin post videos, and normal users can’t?
Admin accounts in WordPress are granted a specific capability that enables them to post any kind of content they choose. Normal users do not have this ability, and are restricted to a specific set of HTML tags.
What is happening to bbPress 1.x?
It will continue to be maintained into the foreseeable future but is feature frozen, meaning no new features will get put in.
Can the bbPress Plugin 2.0 Beta be installed without WordPress?
No. bbPress 2.0 is strictly a plugin for WordPress.
How can I set which users can do what things?
You’ll want to use existing WordPress plugins if you want to customize the capabilities of your users. Start with Members or User Role Editor but be careful! It’s possible to lock yourself out of your site if you remove your own capabilities, so don’t fuss about if you’re not sure what you’re doing.
