Posted on February 2007 at about 4:43 PM by hwa

This is actually quite an old news already, the bbPress 0.8 Desmond was already released on 8th February.

Here are some of the feature this version had improved, quoted from bbPress blog:

  • Forum deletion
  • Multibyte tags
  • Custom locations for themes, plugins and config.php
  • Multiple theme support

And these are the new features that’s added in this version, also quoted from bbPress blog: 🙂

  • Better timezone support, You’re no longer restricted to showing all your times in the timezone of your server (what an odd requirement that was)
  • Whitespace preservation of ‘backticked’ blocks.

There’s a special instruction for those who want to upgrade to this version, because this version support multiple theme and you have to put each of the theme files into sub directory of my-templates, just put your current theme into any folder and upload this folder to my-templates, then activate the theme in your bbPress’ Presentation Admin panel.

WordPress 2.0.5 RC1 Download

Posted on October 2006 at about 10:44 PM by hwa

Got WordPress 2.0.5 RC1 download link from foolswisdom, you may download WordPress 2.0.5 RC1 now, zip and svn also available. But i strongly recommend you all to join the WP Testers mailing list to discuss in case you found any bugs.

Please remember that WordPress 2.0.5 RC1 is till under Release Candidate, mean that there are still minor things to make sure before it’s release to the public, so if you don’t want to take any risk to try Beta software, you may wait until the official release, most probably in 10 days or so.

WordPress 2.0.5 RC1

Posted on October 2006 at about 11:17 PM by hwa

Saw this on WordPress admin dashboard this morning, WordPress 2.0.5 RC1 is out, but not open to public yet. This isn’t an official release, according to Dougal, WordPress 2.0.5 had change from Beta to Release Candidate, mean that soon it will release to the public.

It’s been almost three months since WordPress 2.0.4 released, the development seem like stopped for quite a long time, i guess most probably is because the team is busy with bbPress, a bulletin board system developed by WordPress team.

For those who want to try out the nightly build, you may join the WP Testers mailing list to get the download link, or you may go WordPress Trac site to have a look on what is new in the next release.

bbPress 0.72

Posted on October 2006 at about 3:26 PM by hwa

Just now after finish writing my blog, i went and have a look at the WordPress news at the admin dashboard there, and this bbPress 0.72 draw my attention, it’s a forum system developed by WordPress team.

bbPress 0.72 is the very first official release of this forum system, they called it 0.72: Bix. 0.72 after WordPress’ auspicious beginnings. These are the key features:

  • Fast and Light: nothing you don’t need.
  • Built in spam protection by Akismet.
  • Really simple interface: we want people using our software to forget that they’re using it.
  • Complete integration with WordPress.
  • Both the look and the functionality are highly customizable.
  • RSS feeds for everything.

I never knew WordPress is developing a forum system until now, and i haven’t tried it out yet, but since it’s developed by WordPress people, so i think it’s something that worth to hype about, WordPress really impressed me.

You can have a look at the example here, at first glance the forum look kinda plain, i guess it’s to suit the WordPress style where everything is mostly black and white, just like a newspaper. But worry now!! Just like WordPress, bbPress also comes with templates function, expect some cool design to come out soon.

Not to forget about the plugins as well, the most powerful features in WordPress to me is the plugins, i mean the plugin developers, because of them, WordPress become much more perfect.

You can read more about bbPress 0.72 at here, and download a copy of it at here.

Edit: Corrected the example link, thanks Matt!! 😉
