No group forum created...WP3.1

New site running the Edu-clean template, BP 1.2.8, and WP3.1 with network enabled. When creating new groups I no longer get the option to create a forum for the group. I check and could have swore there was a plugin to do this. I can't seem to find it. Every option I come across refer me to:

Group Forum Subscripton for BuddyPress: ** Use of this plugin is not recommended in versions of BuddyPress 1.2 and higher. Please consider using BuddyPress Group Activity Notifications instead: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress-group-activity-stream-subscription/.

I'm not sure but wanted to see if this option has been removed or am I looking in the wrong location?
Any responses appreciated.
