Re: When bbpress 1.0.3?
Same (the lead developer on bbPress) has left the parent company of bbPress.
I have indeed left Automattic. I decided it was time to move on and pursue some of my own ideas and other interests.
I won’t have much time to contribute to bbPress now and I can’t report who is going to be taking over from me or if anyone is even being sought for the role.
We’ve received no word as to who will replace him (or if anyone will replace him). I’m hoping that Automattic will clarify things on that front soon… it’s been a month or so since Sam announced his departure.
So to come back to your original question: nobody knows when or if the next version of bbPress will come out!
