If you’ve been keeping up-to-date with news regarding bbPress 2.0 (aka the plugin version of the bbPress forum software), then you’ll be glad to hear John James Jacoby just released beta 3 which can be downloaded now from the WordPress plugin directory.
Over the past 2 and a half weeks, project lead Jacoby has been taking in even more user feedback, committing new code, cleaning up old parts of code, and is happy to report:
Available immediately is bbPress 2.0 Beta 3, chock full of fixes and enhancements to help smooth out the integration of bbPress into your existing WordPress.org powered site. Your feedback has been super helpful, and there’s been so much testing we think a sarcastic cake-promising robot may be involved somewhere.
That’s right. More bbPress and a Portal reference.
Some of the fixes and enhancements for bbPress 2.0 beta 3 involve Akismet integration, improvements to the importer, fixes to the inconsistant breadcrumb behavior, shortcodes for login, register, and lost password forms, improvements to multisite support and more.
The bbPress plugin is still on schedule to be released with WordPress 3.2, so the more testing that can be done before hand, the better. We know DevPress are using bbPress on their newly revamped site, have you tried it yet?
