Re: bbPress 1.0 released



A reminder to those using 0.9 not to upgrade to 1.0 yet as many of my plugins (and others) do not support 1.0. I will not be addressing plugin upgrades until December.

10 reasons why to wait a few months to upgrade to bbPress 1.0

1. Your 0.9 install is stable and the core is secure

2. Roughly half the plugins for 0.9 will not currently work with 1.0

3. Once you upgrade you cannot downgrade due to database changes

4. It does not have significant additional features over 0.9

5. It doesn’t use the proven 0.9 core, major parts have been rewritten for BackPress

6. It’s slower, uses 50% more code when producing the same output as 0.9

7. It uses more database queries per page than 0.9

8. It’s code has only months of debugging vs years for 0.8 + 0.9

9. RC was rushed, some changes were made only days ago and are not well tested

10. Version 1.0.1 will be out in a few days (if not a few hours)
