2.5.7 causing issues

OK, it's not a tidal wave, but 2.5.7 does seem to have done something that is upsetting some sites.
I’m having a very strange issue where when updating to bbpress 2.5.7 the widgets on my right sidebar are only visible to users who are logged in.
If I disable the bbpress plugin, viola, people can see all the widgets again.
Yup, same issue here with 2.5.7 and widgets. I downgraded back to 2.5.6 and all was well again. 2.5.7 causes a PHP out of memory exception whenever a not logged in user calls a bbpress widget.

I having a major problem with my wordpress site (www . onlinegokforum . nl)
After the last update (20-4-2015) my site isnt working anymore when i have the bbpress plugin active!?!?!?!

I have trouble now after upgrade to the latest bbpress 2.5.7 Getting error 500 (Internal Server Error)
When I try to log out bbpress all pages start getting 500 – Internal server error. the pages no more accessible, after login through forums again working
I have restored previous version (2.5.6) which is solved the problem
My site was giving 500 internal server error and none of the pages were getting loaded…downgrading back to 2.5.6 did the trick.

I also ran into this after updating to 2.5.7.
When a user was logged in, they could see the site as expected. When logged out an internal server error appeared.
It also happened if bbPress was the only plugin active on the site. The site has been running bbPress without incident before this for a couple of years.
Reverting to 2.5.6 does resolve the issue at least until an update can be made.

Only posting on here as there is no release ticket, and no evidence that you guys are monitoring the forum :-)
