I’ve gone and updated both wordpress and bbress. They are good updates, and add a lot of good features, and fix a lot of little things. With upgrades though there are always problems. The main problem being that the new version of bbpress doesn’t like the old theme Jim and I made, so that I going to have to be addressed. It will ook like the default for a while though, so bare with us.
There is a couple of neat things about both that people could start using now. You can have traveling avatars, through a free service called Gravatar. This works for comments on wordpress and all forum related posts.
WordPress now has a better ability to post videos, and both have better admin panels. The upgrades also should make a better backend tie-in between the two products.
