    I am personally pretty excited about the bbPress plugin for WordPress. As someone has already mentioned there is already a number of other good standalone forum software out there that you could use and there is no reason that bbPress could carry on as a standalone forum as well as being a WordPress canonical plugin.

    I have four sites built with WordPress and I have been wanting to add bbPress to each site for some time but the integration between the two has always put me off.

    Anyone got any idea when the first version of the bbPress plugin will be out?

    This looks promising and very exciting the say the least.

    It makes perfect sense for making bbPress a plugin for WordPress.

    Now that WordPress MU code has been merged into WordPress 3.0 making bbPress a plugin should be even easier. bbPress already barrows a lot of code from WordPress anyway and also bbPress uses the exact same database tables (ie taxonomy tables)

    A lot more people would be using bbPress on their WordPress powered websites if the issues related to the integration of the two separate login systems no longer existed and people were also able to easily use the same theme they have on their blog.

    The standalone bbPress should probably stay but i think bbPress would be used by a lot more people than it is now if it was made a plugin.
