BuddyPress Hits One Point Oh

There are a couple hundred posts that were published yesterday announcing the release of BuddyPress 1.0 so you should be aware of it by now. I wanted to pass along my sincere congratulations to Andy Peatling and the community he has generated around the project. BuddyPress appears to be the hottest thing since sliced bread and with Andy confirming that at some point down the line when a few architectural changes are applied to WordPress that there will be a version released for the stand alone version of WordPress, the future of BuddyPress is looking bright.

By the way, pretty cool to see community member Brad Williams mentioned in the release post as one of the patch contributors to the 1.0 codebase. Nice job Brad.
