I came across JForum last week and I have to say I am very impressed with what I see, and your development cycle is very fast
I would like to add the forums to my site so that when someone logs into my site it will automatically log them into the forums as well. I am sure I can figure that out, but I was wondering if anyone else has done it before?
Also I was wondering how many forums you think JForums can hold?
I was also wondering if you had an estimate on when you will have 1.0 Final done by?
I have downloaded the code and I will start playing with it this weekend, I will look at the bug / todo list and see if there is anything I can do.

I always try to keep the code as simple as possible ( remember KISS? ), and even that I coulnd't spend much time as I would like to develop JForum ( I have my regular job ), I try to use the free time as best as possible.
Well, since JForum public releases are available from a short time, I guess nobody did it or even had realized. Well, I did.. Toghether with some friends, we run a Java site for portuguese speakers, the http://www.guj.com.br JUG.
We're creating a new version of the site, and there is the integration question. I hadn't done anything to solve this issue yet, but is very possible that in some future release, JForum will have some kinda of support of integration with other systems.
Short answer? I don't know at all. As JForum development phase is not yet done, I thought that is better to let the performance tests to the end, as in this stage you don't have many refactoring to do ( e.g, the core code is stable ).
There is some things I'll do, like HTML cache of the contents. This can really improve the performance. There are other minor updates, like logged user's cache and so on, but these I want to have to 1.0 fnal release.
Well, I can't tell you exactly when, because, as I already said, I've a "real" job to go every day ( and saturdays and sundays ;) ).
Let's say I need one week to release RC2, and plus 2 or 3 more weeks to fix other minor bugs.. hhmm.. 1 month and something, if everthing goes fine.
That's really great. There are bugs waiting for you
The TODO list is not complete, so you will need to ask.. if you wanna talk using some instant messenger ( like icq or msn ), just send me and email.
