John James Jacoby spoke out on Twitter and straight into our hearts and said that “[t]he bbPress plugin is fast approaching release. Be an early adopter and help me test it. Yeah, you. :).” We can all take bets on when “fast approaching release” means, but there’s one thing that isn’t debatable: throwing your hat in the ring and helping with development and testing now will speed up the plugin’s release.
The bbPress plugin has been in development for some time now, with Jacoby taking the reigns in recent months and dominating it, with big help from student and Google Code-in winner Gautam Gupta.
You can follow Jacoby on Twitter, and help out with bbPress development via the blog and via trac (you can download the plugin it is current state here). Now I have to wonder: which of you will be the first ones to fire up a forum using the new bbPress plugin when it’s released?
