BP Development Pre-Merge: WP or WPMU

  • designodyssey


    It seems this is a popular question, but doesn’t have it’s own topic/post.

    I read that 50% of BP developers don’t turn on blogs for users, so many should be thinking about this.

    • My first question is will BP 1.2 “officially” support WP2.9.1?
    • If true, is there an expectation that current (or even near future) plugins will work on WP single?
    • When do we realistically expect release of WP3.0?
    • What other things should I be considering?

      I already have WPMU working OK on my XP machine, so I’ve crossed that hurdle.

    1) Yes. It’s on the roadmap for BP 1.2.

    2) The WPMU abstraction layer that Andy has coded for single WP compatibility should work in most cases. However, I can’t say for certain.

    3) Realistic release for WP 3.0? I’d say mid- to late- 2010. So definitely not in the first half of 2010!

    These are just my thoughts. Maybe the BP dev team can chime in for a more, accurate response.

    1. BP trunk already supports 2.9.1, and 1.2 will as well.

    2. BP trunk works very well on WordPress 2.9.1 (not MU)

    3. Don’t expect WP3.0 until at least June, if not later. The WordPress dev cycle is aiming for new versions every six months.

    r-a-y’s been paying attention. :)

    I would recommend staying away from the trunk version of WordPress (single) at the moment. The WPMU trunk currently contains the most up to date WPMU 2.9.1 version, it just hasn’t been officially released yet.



    Thanks. I didn’t know the roadmap had been “updated.”

    Given the official support, I think I’m gonna scrap MU. Haven’t made any customizations I can’t easily port to WP single. Great news.

    I’ve been playing with 2.9.1 MU (trunk) and BP 1.2 (trunk) and all seems well so far. Are there any gotchas that I’m not aware of?
