WordPress 2.07 was just released. We get to update our WordPress blogs for a week as WordPress 2.1 is due on January 22nd.
Is it worth it? Yes both for the security and Feedburner fixes.
A link to the BBPress announcement as well. It is one of the forum platforms I am looking into here. I have played around with one forum plugin, that built the forum in the WordPress Database, but an a little worried about security etc.
I do intend one day to have a forum running either here, or on a closed membership site.
