bbPress 1.1 – Maybe Soon!

Just an update on what’s going on Trac – bbPress 1.0.3 milestone has 3 tickets left (all the tickets have patches and 1 depends on a BackPress ticket), while 1.1 milestone has 4 tickets left (2 haves patches, and 2 need patches). There’s also another BackPress ticket that needs to be fixed (which also has a patch). That means that bbPress 1.1 is very near to its release!

How can you help?

  1. Checkout a copy of bbPress trunk version via SVN and test it.
  2. Test the patches of the open tickets.
  3. Contribute patches to the tickets which don’t have one.

What’s new in bbPress 1.1?

  1. Email subscriptions
  2. Loginless posting
  3. Better administration of posts and topics
  4. Better search and statistics
  5. Bug fixes. Some critical ones are – #1261 (RSS feeds errors), #1146 (faster recount functions), #1150 (undelete topic error).
  6. Better tags administration (if #1243 goes in)

Some tickets that missed 1.1 milestone are #960 (better user administration) and #1277 (kakumei cleanup) even though they had patches but could cause errors as they were huge changes and needed more testing. They might get into 1.2 though.

Update: bbPress 1.0.3 milestone now only has 1 ticket left, which depends on this BackPress ticket), while 1.1 milestone has 2 tickets left (both need patches). There’s also another BackPress ticket that needs to be fixed (has patch). Also, there would be no tag administration in 1.1.
