Will it be updated?

    I am just a moderator here, and not a bbpress author.

    The authors tend to release updates every few years, rather than more frequently.

    My personal view is that you should consider bbpress to be a ‘mature’ product, ie any releases will be to fix issues rather than add functionality.

    bbpress is written really well, and has loads of hooks. There are no show stopper bugs in it, it may throw a few deprecation notices (and these are very few at the moment), but WordPress recommends that you should not show error messages in live sites.

    I currently have my test site running WordPress 6.4.x and php 8.2 with no issues.

    The only major issue with bbpress at the moment is that it does not work well with FSE themes.

    However my bbp style pack plugin has fixes for this

    as well as block versions of the widgets and a ton of styling and functionality add-ons.

    All plugins are subject to the authors commitment, and bbpress is no different.

    The main WordPress support forums use bbpress, and it would be mega work to move those over to some other product.

    But with open software you make your choices….

    I am unsure what the theme has to do with the bbPress in this case. bbPress works with any theme, and you don’t have to use a specific theme to have bbPress, or to have bbPress bundled with the theme. ThemeForest themes are usually very bloated and bundle tons of plugins that are later hard to update or to switch to newer versions.

    bbPress is a free plugin that is updated when needed to fix bugs, and works really well as is. it doesn’t have to be bundled with any theme.
