Re: What's happening with bbPress?
>WordPress didn’t become great by cramming a bunch of features in.
WordPress became popular, and maintains its popularity, because it provides features users want. If you want Vanilla, go download Vanilla. When people get BBpress they expect comparable functionality to WordPress. Not some stripped down prototype of a forum framework.
This community is hijacked by people who want BBpress forever to be 0.9. It is extremely frustrating to see people continually rail against increasing the base featureset of BBpress. Especially when _ck_ abandoning plugins that were crucial to the very existence of the BBpress community show the need for these features to be officially maintained and not exist on the emotional whims of a single person.
