GD bbPress Tools will be upgrading the DB
I have to say that I’m pretty impressed by the fact that GD bbPress Tools Pro plugin has sent today news regarding the update to the next big version (7.0) and Milan will be upgrading the topic and replies system to a completely separate table.
He says that this will increase efficiency for an obvious reason (indexing of wp_postmeta for such large amount of data in many forums is obviously one of the Achilles talon of bbPress).
But to some extent I feel that this will be like a “fork” of the bbPress project.
I’m uncertain if Milan is a regular user of these forums, but I would like to see your opinions on this movement. I’ve been using GD bbPress Tools for ages because it really complements well all my devs for bbPress on my forums (and I don’t have to be duplicating the code to perform most of the features that he has already implemented), but I’m pretty skeptical that this could be a major caveat for future releases and too much attachment to Milan (in case something happens to him, and considering that this is not open sourced).
I’m not sure either if he will be implementing this for the free version in the WordPress repo.
Furthermore, I may also ask this in his private forum, but I was looking for more opinions in this official forum.
PS: Yes, Milan is around as expected @gdragon
