A quick review of some recent changes.

  1. Better user administration. Admins can now promote/demote/delete users.
  2. Better topic and post adminstration. Moderators can now move topics from one forum to another, browse deleted topics and posts, and undelete.
  3. Views. The fully pluggable views functionality allows users with specified capabilities (see below) to browse customizable content. Native views allow anyone to browse by topics with no replies, unresolved topics, or untagged topics. There is also a view that allows moderators to browse all deleted topics (see above).
  4. Capabilities. bbPress has shifted from the hierarchical user_type permissions system to a generic role/capability model. The new system is much more flexible and makes it much easier to keep track of who can do what.
