WordPress (which powers this site) announced a couple of major advances this week: Version 1.0 of WordPress MU – a multi-user version of Word Press, and bbPress – a forum software that integrates with WordPress.
WordPressMU reaching 1.0 is a biggie – I tried an older version about a year ago, and it just didn’t fly. The new version has been used to power WordPress.com for a while now and seems to have all of the bugs shaken out of it.
bbPress is described as: “forum software with the WordPress touch, and developed by the same folks.” It has also had an extensive shakedown powering the WordPress Support Forums.
Thanks to everyone who contributes to such a fine product!
