I’m happy to announce that version 1.0 of BuddyPress is now available for download.
This release marks over a year of solid development, starting from the roots of the ChickSpeak project, all the way to the blossoming developer community I see interacting on this site everyday.
This is just the first step on a long road ahead. So much is possible now that we have a solid WordPress-based social framework to build upon.
The status updates and gallery components are next on the roadmap, you can expect to see versions of those components appearing later this year. We’ll also be going through the hundreds of enhancement tickets we’ve received, and with your help prioritizing them for future versions.
I’m most excited to see what plugin developers and theme designers can come up with. Even in the pre-release stages, plugins to extend and add functionality have already been popping up. If you’re a plugin developer or theme designer, be sure to check out the skeleton component and skeleton theme. These packages will provide you with a solid starting point to build BuddyPress components and custom themes from.
I’d also like to give some serious thanks to the community that has rallied around this project. I was told that getting people excited and involved with a new OSS project can be one of the hardest tasks to accomplish. I’m really bowled over that so many people have become involved with BuddyPress development and feedback on a daily basis.
I’d like to give a mention to every developer who has helped with the project, whether it be with tickets, advice, feedback or support:

I wish it were possible to use WordPress (not only the MU), because I don’t interested migrating to the MU (I have only 1 blog) but I would like to add that feature social networking.
There are estimates of when the BuddyPress will be available for WordPress (traditional)? And also, to enable integration with bbPress (forum). It would be perfect!
Congratulations for open source projects.

Would it be better to use BuddyPress on a new blog, or add it to an existing one? I am always interested in keeping up on what is new in the blogging world. I have read about BP (is it ok to call it that?) for a few months now, but have not used it yet.
I thought I would let the better coder and fixer types do that first.

A Million Thank Yous to Andy and all contributors, hope I can contribute somehow soon.
I’ve been watching the BuddyPress development for some time and I really like what I see. I see a huge market for this for niche sites and the power to own your data is key!
I can’t wait for the gallery component to be completed. I have thought about using BuddyPress for several client project, but the lack of the gallery right now prevents me from doing so.
BuddyPress is such an awesome addition to an already awesome platform. Keep up the great work!
Nice work Andy and everyone else in the BuddyPress community! This is truly a reason to celebrate.
