bbPress 0.9 Is Out, Integrates With WordPress 2.5
Good news for bbPress users, 0.9 is out and it features integration with WordPress 2.5. There are a bunch of news in this release as well, although most fixes and fine-tunings. Read more about that here, and nab the 0.9 version here.
That’s the good part. The bad part is that current bbPress users will have to go through a bit of extra work upgrading. I haven’t tried it on any of my installs yet, but it looks straight forward enough, if not as easy as I’d prefer. That’s the problem with using code that haven’t reached the critical 1.0 number yet, so who’s complaining?
Actually, I did whine a bit about bbPress recently, over at Devlounge. I think it still is pretty far from 1.0, check that post out if you’re interested in the forum sibling of WordPress.

He used to be a hotshot in the gaming industry in Sweden, but sold everything and went International. Most recently he wrote a book called Smashing WordPress: Beyond the Blog, and does loads of kickass design.
My question about BBPress is… why not just make it a plugin? I use Simple Forum from http://www.stuff.yellowswordfish.com/ and it’s just a plug and it works.
