Hi everyone!

The current major version of bbPress (2.5.x) has been going strong for about a year now, without any major blockages, problems, or breakage. If you helped make bbPress as great as it is, please pat yourself on the back… now.

Stephen and I have been steadily improving and readying the next major version (2.6) ever since releasing 2.5.0, and while many huge featuresĀ and neat little improvements have already landed in the development version, there are 2 features that will likely get bumped to 2.7 so we can call 2.6 done:

  • bbPress as Post Comments
  • Forums as Taxonomies

These two features are fully architected and planned, but do not have enough progress in code for them to hold up the release of 2.6.

In the coming weeks, look forward to beta’s and RC’s of bbPress 2.6 without the two features mentioned above. For 2.7, we’ll likely focus *only* on those two features and nothing else.

Thanks for being patient, and passionate about bbPress. We love forums, and we love our users and fans! <3
