The good folks over at bbPress (you know, the forum software made by the people that brought you WordPress) just posted about easier integration with WordPress. It looks easy enough, but I’€™m still waiting for the software to leave alpha.
I’€™d say this might be coming soon. In another post that went online in May, the first one this year, Matt wrote about bbPress working so well and adding ‘€œa good coat of paint before we consider taking it [bbPress] out of alpha’€?.
This spells nicely to me. Is bbPress perhaps rapidly getting closer to launch due to reinforced interest and love from the developers perhaps?
Too bad bbpress.com has nothing to do with bbPress, otherwise a wordpress.com-ish service could be happening. On the other hand, a premium service for wordpress.com to add bbPress functionality?
I don’€™ know! Just give me a public release of bbPress!
