Yesterday we pushed the first release candidate for bbPress 1.0 out the door. You can grab it from the download page.
Over the next few weeks there will be a (relatively) rapid progression of “RC” releases as we move towards a final release of 1.0
bbPress is almost stable enough to use on a live website, but I can’t recommend that yet. If you want to try it out on your existing data, then I suggest you make a complete copy of your site and then upgrade. If you just want to take a look and see what’s changed then try a fresh install (some independent testing of the installer is always useful).
If you find a problem please report it in Trac so I can get onto it as soon as possible.
when will the stable version come?
I’m hoping we can get it out within the next 4 weeks. Please do some testing of the release candidates and help us get there.
Whouaou ! Great news !
Thanks Sam. I will try it right now and report any bug to help you as much as possible to move on a stable 1.0. We really need it !
Thanks for the great work.
I was just wondering if you would go on developing bbPress and you came out with this.
I’m using the alpha version on my site, restricted forums for few people (hidden location), and I’m upgrading to RC in a few hours. I just hope you could release the stable version soon (and port some plugins), bbPress is the forum script that best suits me.
Keep on the great work!
4 weeks? Excellent news Sam. Keep it up.
I am happy bbPress user now 10 months and i could use bbPress in future. bbPress is fast and best! Wait a stabil 1.0. Sorry for my bad English.
Have there been any major improvements in WP integration since 0.9.0.2?
Absolutely! It works with the latest versions of WordPress for a start.
I am just about to click publish on a new project based on WP and BBpress. I dont think I am able to wait for the 1.0 version… My question is if you are going to include more functionality before 1.0? I have already been using the WordPress-bbPress syncronization plugin so comments in WP is posted in the assosiated bbpress thread.
Is there going to be any more integration between the two for 1.0?
The integration functionality will be pretty much unchanged from earlier alpha versions.
Hi, Any news on a release date for the stable version 1? Also, on the WordPress site they allow you to sign up to get notification of new versions of WordPress. Any chance you could do the same? Keep up the good work! SD
