    I'll be upgrading the WordPress.org forums tonight around 9pm Pacific = 4:00am Friday, July 9th UTC.

    We'll be moving to the latest version of bbPress.

    The transition itself will probably take about an hour, for much of which the forums will be down.

    I expect there will be continuing bugs after that too :)

    Apologies for the short notice and the upcoming annoyances, but the outcome will be worth it eventually.

    Upgrades complete and only one hour and fifteen minutes late :)

    I'm sure there's bugs. If you see any problems, let me know.

    the tag pages don't seem to be working :(

    eg: http://wordpress.org/support/tags/wordpressorg

    other than that I haven't spotted any other bugs

    Reported on Trac - didn't see this thread at the time.

    The correct tag URLs are of the form http://wordpress.org/tags/wordpressorg

    This has been fixed.

    So is this now running the same version of bbPress and BackPress as the bbPress.org website?

    As admin I can add a tag but I can't delete tags. For instance, in testing tags I put two tags on http://wordpress.org/support/topic/421601 and need to delete them.

    Also don't see a way to mark threads resolved.

    e.g. http://wordpress.org/support/topic/420442?replies=11

    Tag deletion: fixed.
    Thread resolution: fixed.

    As you may have noticed, we're having to bring the forums down and back up a fair amount.

    We're figuring out how best to deal with a bunch of new things across all of the WordPress.org site.

    Thanks for your patience as we get things squared away.

  13. This version of bbPress does not contain the subscribe to thread by email functionality does it?

    Subscribe by email: it does - we'll enable it once everything else is settled.

    Before enabling email subscription, please read my comment here since there is a place for improvements of that feature (like adding links via topicmeta action).

    Some improvements were just made in trunk regarding email subscriptions so take that into account when enabling it here. My detailed post: http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/checkbox-for-e-mail-subscription-ideas-for-better-backend?replies=3#post-71113
