By now you have surely read the news of the release of BudyPress 1.2 (which now will work with single WordPress.org blogs, previously limited to WordPress MU) and this dev blog announcement from Jane last evening about another plugin Andy wrote that lets you use your present theme with BuddyPress.
I have always been of the opinion that this blog, its content, its collection of authors and most of all, its community of readers, is a prime candidate for BuddyPress. Having a common signup between comments, ratings, forums and blog posts would be a fantastic feature. This news is the first step in making those features a reality. We will start working on our test version of this blog very soon.
Are you thinking about trying BuddyPress? What is your greatest concern in adding BuddyPress to your blog? What is the greatest benefit?
