Re: BuddyPress For WordPress (Not MU) Coming

John James Jacoby


Bryan868, the short answer is there are some larger changes in the 2.8 and 2.9 pipeline that have been strongly hinted at recently. Those changes won’t make their way into WPMU necessarily at the same time, so we’re mostly safe for now using WPMU.

BuddyPress will continue to get updated as WordPress versions change, however because there are a lot of dependencies there, and lots of distinct differences between a .org install and an MU install, it isn’t just flipping a switch and making it go.

It is going to happen, just not as soon as most people wish unfortunately. Hopefully everyone that’s salivating at the chance to open up their own .org sites to start adding friends and making profiles can understand the dev process and try to be patient.

I know it isn’t exactly what everyone wants to hear, but it’s the straight forward truth of the matter as it stands today. It may change tomorrow, but that’s where it is now.
