The WordPress family has been really starting to grow lately. I wanted to let you guys know about two big releases: WordPress Multi-user 1.0 and bbPress 0.72.
WordPress MU is an official branch of WordPress that is designed for managing and hosting thousands of blogs instead of just one. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the software that powers WordPress.com, for example. MU has been in heavy development for about a year now, and weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve finally polished it up to a place where we feel like itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ready for public consumption. Since setup is a bit more complex than the 5-minute install of regular WordPress, MU is best suited for a more server-savvy audience. You can download it on the WordPress MU site.
