    @gaysurfers

    We are all now dying to see Buddypress 1.3. when will it be released?
    Can anyone give us any idea on a date that we can expect:
    -privacy – hide BP pages from public
    -BP member filter (doesn’t work with current bp version)
    -auto join group by country fields (still don’t work with WP single user)
    -order groups alphabetically
    -order members last registered by default
    -Fix email notification issue (users still don’t receive email when they have a new message)
    At the moment we don’t know when we can expect it… is it a matter of days, weeks, months???
    Please update
    Thanks

    There are still a lot of tickets on Trac for BP 1.3; I’m guessing a month or longer:

    However, there will be an intermediary point release on the 1.2 branch – v1.2.5 – hopefully that will be released in the next week or so.

    My guestimate is another month and a bit. Don’t quote me on that though! (obviously I was wrong 8 months ago!) :)

    Do you think we will be at 1.3 by 1.4 time slot? I guess there is no use of trying to anticipate the next major update… there still are 60+ tickets in the trac, most without patches.

    and he posted it over 9 months ago :lol:

    BP 1.3 *is* coming – it will not be another nine months. But we have hit some tricky bits, and the core development team has not had an infinite amount of time to volunteer to pushing BP 1.3 along. If you are a developer (or even a savvy user who can test patches or verify bugs), and if you have an interest in seeing 1.3 come along sooner rather than later, head over to http://trac.buddypress.org and start sifting through this report in particular: http://trac.buddypress.org/report/11 The more contributions from the community, the faster things will move along (and the more love and friendship we well all have for each other, <img src="smileys/heart.gif" width="" height="" alt="<3" title=" kumbayah <img src="smileys/heart.gif" width="" height="" alt="<3" title=")!

    :???:

    I have a sneaking suspicion that Buddypress is dying..

    I have many problems using it for my community and seriously consider changing. BuddyPress development is super slow and the community seems very thin.

    What are your experiences?

    BuddyPress development moves as quickly as it can with an all-volunteer crew of developers and support specialists. If you’re concerned that things aren’t moving quickly enough, you should get involved.

    There really is a huge imbalance between Users of this app and those actively trying to develop it, move it forward. As Boone says ‘get involved’ if more people got involved things may run a little more smoothly and faster, give up a little bit of time reporting bugs to trac, testing patches if you can and feeding back.

    Think of it this way-

    If it’s taking a really long time to develop, it must be blooming with very cool features.

    Would you rather have an update with little to no additions/fixes, but takes a short amount of time, or an update with tons of additions/fixes, and have it take a little while longer.

    Also, buddypress is *free*, so what are you complaining about?

    that is true, buddypress is free same as most of plugins out there. and after being around wordpress for a while i truly believe that it should stop. Nobody should work for free. i believe that a decent price for a great plugin like Buddypress will not prevent people from using it. as well as many other great plugins out there that are free and disappear after one or two updated of wordpress because not enough support. then we have to spend crazy amount of time to look for a replacement for those plugins. (i am dealing with this everyday).
    i personally appreciate you people giving your time to create such great things. and i would help in any way i can. :))))))

    I am not going to wait. Going to use the trac version in my live site. :)

    Thanks for all the hard work you guys put in! We’re looking to integrate buddypress into our own website, should we wait until 1.3, will there be any significant changes to it that would make upgrading a challenge? Is there a page somewhere where we can see the planned changes/features? Thanks!
