Login from Public Page revisited

I see some time ago there was interest in a plugin that would require users to login from a public page like a membership site preferably self registering. Is this still in the works or is there a way do create this functionality using some third party tools?

It's not only in the works, but very close to release. I'd estimate between one week and one month.

Terrific news! Timing couldn't be better. Many thanks.

Any progress updates on this plugin? What will it be called so I can keep an eye out for it?

I hope it will be next week. It's GuestUser in GitHub if you want to try it out earlier.
