On the BuddyPress blog this week Boone Gorges pointed out that the BuddyPress plugin has crossed the million download mark on the WordPress.org plugin directory (1,004,479 at the time of this writing). BuddyPress’s first stable release was in May of 2009, just under three years ago this month.
BuddyPress can now boast what few plugins can, and joins the short list of plugin titans like Jetpack, Contact Form 7, and All in One SEO Pack. Okay, so it needs a few more downloads to truly rival those numbers, but it’s getting closer.
In any case, I’ll happily echo Boone’s sentiment:
Here’s to the next million!
For the fans of BuddyPress out there (of which there are, it seems, a few) how long ago did you first start messing with BuddyPress? Were you an early adopter? Or, put another way, how many of those million downloads are you responsible for?
