Last week BuddyPress announced the launch of their much anticipated beta release.
BuddyPress is a set of WordPress MU plugins that adds social networking functionality to any standard WordPress MU installation. Each BuddyPress component is independent, meaning you can choose which features you’d like and are not required to install all features on your site.
Andy Peatling, the developer behind BuddyPress, did an excellent interview on WordPress Weekly last Friday. In the interview Andy goes in to detail on BuddyPress features and functionality, the future of BuddyPress, developing BuddyPress specific components, and much more. As always Jeff did a great job with the interview.
We recently started development on our first production BuddyPress website. We are excited to work with the new BuddyPress plugins and can’t wait to launch this great new website.

Thanks for the kind words Brad. As I spend more and more time testing BuddyPress on the demo site, I become more impressed. For a 1.0 release, it sure does look slick and works pretty well for me. I tried to install a local version of WPMU and I failed heh!
Andy’s interview brought to life the technology I’ve been watching patiently all year. Can’t wait to start to play with it…bring it on. It will be fun to explore this together.
