    I suppose half of the reason they stopped is because of Slack, which seems to have gained a bit of traction regarding internal communication.

    That’s a pity. They should at least take the WP.com code out and make it easy for the community to keep the development going, or something. If they are not gonna finish it, someone else should, because the idea was really interesting, and lots of people were looking forward for it.

      You can download the files or anyone for that matter, remove the code that relies on the infrastructure and come up with something different or something that doesn’t tie into it.

    Do any of you know what Matt was alluding to when he said it would only work on WordPress.com in it’s current form?

      I don’t. The only thing I’ve been told and it’s something you know already is that it doesn’t make sense to run outside of WordPress.com’s infrastructure. I don’t even know how to set it up to try to figure out what that means.

    Although Mullenweg says anyone on WordPress.com can enable o2, this is not the case. Searching for o2 on WordPress.com generates no results while P2 brings up the original P2 theme.

    Anyone who’d like access to the “new” P2 on WordPress.com (aka O2) is welcome to make a request in the Themes forum and we’ll be glad to get you set up. We’ll also add you to the beta users group.

    Also to clarify, O2 on WordPress.com is called P2 now, while the old P2 was renamed P2 Classic.

      Once upon a time I submitted a solicited request to be part of the testing on this and I never heard back.

        Sorry about that! If you post on the WordPress.com site right now, letting me know the URL of the WordPress.com site you’d on which you’d like the new P2 activated, I would be glad to help you out.

          I wasn’t wanting it for Dot Com.
          My experience mirrors the frustration expressed in this article. If my memory is correct, there was an announcement with some fanfare about a P2 replacement, if anyone wants to participate please convince us why YOU should be invited. I bothered to write something and then I never received a response nor until this post even learned what happened to the project.

    Any WordPress.com user can now activate it on their WPcom site.
