Forum plugin: Am I missing something? It's not like the video

Hi I was wondering if I downloaded the wrong plugin...the "Forum" plugin is missing the following (according to the promo video):

1. Sticky posts
2. Close topic
3. Forum 'themes'.

I've seen a couple of threads saying there would be an update to include these features but this begs the question...what did ya'll use to make that video? Were there some issues in the original plugin that had to be removed? Those threads were two years old or so. Thanks. I'd love to use it because any user of the network can log in with their present user name. Otherwise going to bbpress, users would have to re-register and check email confirmation I believe.
