Re: bbPress 1.0 alpha
There have been so many new features added in the past few weeks in the trunk that there’s no way it’s ever going to be stable this month (October).
Even if they release another alpha (or beta but that would be crazy), that doesn’t mean it’s stable, it means it needs to be tested and debugged, thoroughly. Sam only has a limited environment to test things. Problems with PHP4 or Windows come up constantly and other things he can’t easily test. There’s also a good chance plugins will become broken (again/still).
Do NOT use the alpha on a live, active site. Period. Seriously. Not kidding. It’s not a trick. Alphas are for testing purposes only. Objects may be closer than they appear.
If you ignore this warning, you are on your own.
