They are back to 7 active tickets. I’m guessing it’ll be 2020 when it’s released, but the RC seems stable.In reply to: bbPress 2.6 Release Candidate 3
Any news on 2.6 it’s on RC 7 now.
It’s been on RC 7 since December of last year. You can check the dev tracker for 2.6 here (still being worked on) –
It was listed at 99%, but now back to 98% as a result of some bugs.
There are 5 tickets open, and at least one was worked on recently (within the past week or so) – https://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org/milestone/2.6
Hopefully they will find some time, but for now I’m running with the RC.
Thanks, appreciate the update. Will 2.6 be rolling out soon? It looks very close to completion.
Looked further, it’s “99%” complete:
Okay, just check the dev tracker. JJJ put some work in last month on 2.6.
That they now are mainly doing other things is sad for us, but they have a perfect right to do as they wish, and should feel under no obligation to spend time supporting the code.
Agree that they have the right to do as they wish, but they should at least publicly announce whether they are going to end bbPress development, or if it’s going to continue to languish for years at a time.
I understand @johnjamesjacoby is a very busy guy, but we are constantly told to be wary of plugins that are old.
More importantly, a lot of us have moved on to other software, rather than continue to beta-test bbPress 2.6 (which has been in some form of RC for over 3 years, and the latest RC came out in December of last year).
I have a big project that I’m putting together for somebody (they want WordPress), and some kind of lightweight/small forums are planned for, and it’s frustrating that I’m having to look elsewhere for forum software, or rigging some kind of fancy comment system (trying to avoid Disqus and Facebook for obvious reasons).
It’s odd, because bbPress could be a selling point for WordPress in their competition with other platforms. It’s also odd, because they have some very competent people working for them, but then they allow bbPress to kind of just drift along.
