All the planned features for GD bbPress Toolbox Pro 5.0 should be implemented now. But, due to the number of changes it includes, it has to go through the Beta stage before getting a stable release.
Initial plans for the plugin were to release it by the end of October, but, some late additions caused the delay. New release date for stable version is now set to November 8, 2017.
