Available immediately is bbPress 2.0 RC 5 “Can we have a pool, dad?” edition. Thanks to a few last minute contributions we were able to fix some theme compatibility issues, BuddyPress Activity stream issues, and Email subscription issues. We’re pretty confident this is the final release-candidate before launch, so please update your existing installations and let us know how it’s going in the support forums.

We’re confident you can use RC 5 on a live site without sinking the ship, but please let us know if it springs any leaks in your installation. If you’re a developer or site administrator, report any oddities over at our trac.

Here are some of the changes in RC 5:

  • Improved theme compatibility
  • Improved BuddyPress Activity stream behavior
  • Improved Subscription email sending
  • API tweaks for plugin authors
