Today we tagged bbPress 2.3 beta 1 in the plugin repository. This means we think 2.3 ready to release into the wild, but want to get a few extra eyes on things first. It represents the 4th major iteration of bbPress as a plugin for your self-hosted WordPress powered website, and we’re excited about how far we’ve come.

Even though bbPress 2.3 is developer tested, we don’t recommend you run it on a production site quite yet. Instead, set up a test site or a local installation to play with. If you find a bug, patch it or let us know.

We are aiming to release bbPress 2.3 in the first week of February. Now’s the time to report some feedback!

If you think you found a bug, please report it on the bbPress Core Trac. If you find a security vulnerability, please be discrete and let us know privately using one of the methods posted on the WordPress contact page.
