To those of you who didn’t find the last post quite as exciting as I did, perhaps you’ll appreciate what the new architecture allows when you hear about its first feature: Customizable RSS feeds. Users can specify a custom set of topics from which their personal feed will draw recent posts. Currently, users can specify […]
bbPress now has rudimentary tag support and gorgeous URIs that don’t require mod_rewrite. You can see both in action on the WordPress forums and I’ll be revving the tag support significantly in the coming weeks. There have also been numerous profile and performance enhancements you may want to check out.

I’ve caught up on most of the open bbPress bugs, so if you’re running bbPress somewhere I would recommend upgrading to the next nightly. Most notable, users can now edit their profiles and passwords and you can now override cookies to allow for easier integration.

The developers mailing list is now working and accepting subscriptions.
Well the first commit was on the 26th, and now it’s running the WordPress forums, so I’d say things are going pretty well so far. Welcome to the new bbPress blog that’s going to cover aspect of the development and news of bbPress. I’m pretty happy with the speed of things right now, I just […]
