Yes … yet another release date question (ALPHA #7)

  • I read nearly 4 months ago from Sam himself that ALPHA #7 was “weeks away” from being release.

    Curious to know what the current status is on ALPHA #7.

    And yes, I have already read up on: http://bbpress.org/forums/tags/10

    So please don’t post that as a reply.

    I assume you aren’t using any of my plugins?

    Because I won’t be supporting alpha 7+ this year.

    Now that there are options to use bbPress 0.9 with WP 2.7

    there’s no excuse to use the alphas.

    No, I don’t use any plugins.

    Also, you said:

    >> “Now that there are options to use bbPress 0.9 with WP 2.7 there’s no excuse to use the alphas. “

    That seems to imply that you do NOT want people to start using the ALPHA. Why?

    Shouldn’t bbPress be pushing developers to start using the ALPHA in non-production settings to hunt down bugs.

    bbPress 1.0 rc1 will be announced shortly,

    aka 1.0 alpha 7, Sam has decided to jump the beta test phase.

    I don’t want people to use 1.0 on live sites because you can never go back to 0.9 once you upgrade. There is always an upgrade path, there is no downgrade. It is very tedious for plugin developers to keep up with radical changes in the alpha development, bbPress 1.0 is a different creature internally than 0.9

    You can read more about my reasons here.

    Thanks _ck_ for the info.

    Just to make sure I understand correctly … ALPHA #7 will be bbPress 1.0 rc1, right.

    I’m eagerly awaiting the announcement. Hope to hear it in the next few weeks :)

    Yes they are done calling them alphas

    though I definitely disagree with skipping of the beta label.

    It won’t be a few weeks, more like a few days I think, unless I misunderstood.
