bbPress project lead John James Jacoby announced beta 2 of the bbPress plugin this afternoon. This comes just six days after the first beta release, and shows the development has picked up speed and is moving right along.
The update brings GlotPress integration, improves breadcrumbs and template flexibility, and fixes a number of general bugs that were reported by those using bbPress beta 1.
Jacoby was excited to share the news of quick development this week, and shared the plans for future development:
The plan is to keep releasing Beta’s as changes go in, put out release candidates in the next few weeks, and release bbPress 2.0 by the end of June (in tandem with WordPress 3.2.) The more you help us polish the new paint during the beta period means a shinier and longer lasting 2.0, and the more likely we are to stay on schedule and hit our release goals.
If you haven’t already, grab the (relatively) new bbPress plugin from the WordPress directory. If you’re already running it, just hit update from your dashboard and continue testing happily.
Who’s using it already? Any sites running bbPress-plugin-driven forums to show off yet? I’d say at this point, anyone wanting a forum, using WordPress, is running out of reasons to not be running bbPress. Would you agree?
