Nice. It seems everything is updating in preparation for WordPress 3.5. One less ticket than the BuddyPress 1.6.2 update, it also includes a few points of compatibility.
Now bbPress is something that I’ve used a lot before and something I’ve considered using even for this community – not sure how it would be implemented but I think there will be a lot more discussion that has (and will) go on beyond every blog post.
Thoughts on using some forum software or bbPress? I’d love to keep it in the Automattic-family if possible but no biggie if not.
