Today we are releasing what will be the final release candidate for bbPress 1.0 before it goes to 1.0 final in a couple of days.
The release is available now from the downloads page.
This release incorporates many bug fixes to BackPress via the final work in the lead up to the release of WordPress 2.8
It also has a surprise in the form of the groundwork for a new admin interface which borrows its look and feel from WordPress. The admin area is currently lacking a lot of design nuance in the content areas, but all the forms and controls are at least functional. Let’s call this the “excuse the mess” release candidate.
Despite the current changes in the admin area this code is now stable enough to use in a production environment, and in fact internally at Automattic we have been doing so for quite some time. Specifically on TalkPress and the BuddyPress.org forums. It’s important that we get as much testing and feedback occurring as possible, so that the final release is as robust as we can make it.
bbPress changes since release candidate 1 are here.
BackPress changes since release candidate 1 are here.
Please file any new issues on Trac.
Very very nice… love the new admin panel integration. Will next release have some stylesheets for each admin page (menu looks good, but… styles are missing for in page… feels unfinished…)? Maybe you need some help for this?
Keep it up 😉
Yes, the styles will be improved. Any help you are willing to give would be appreciated, either for this release or the next.
I just upgrade to RC2 and love the new admin interface !!! 🙂
Can’t wait to install this. Way to go Sam!!!
Yup, it’s a lovely improvement.
[…] this out: bbPress 1.0 RC 2 has been announced as […]
I’ve been waiting, and waiting, and, well you get it. Thanks for the final fixes before 1.0 launch Sam! Did you see the video I got from WordCampDev and you chat on bbPress? If not, my you tube profile has a few video of “our” chat in the back room (not to be confused with the “back back” room) about bbPress : You Tube
Looking forward for BBpress 1.0 😀
We’re going to try RC2 out on a new real estate. Will be back with some (hopefully useful 🙂 ) feedback soon!
How many days are left for BBPress 1.0 to come out?
