Will I be able to upgrade via dash if I use 1.5 RC1 ?

  • If I manually install 1.5 RC1, will I be notified and be able to update normally/successfully via the dashboard when 1.5 is released?

    Since 1.2.11 is in the works, I’m assuming 1.5 isn’t going to be released anytime soon.

    A bit confused why BP RC isn’t installable via the dashboard while bbpress RC is.

    New to the WP/BP world, learning.

    Yes.

    Incorrect assumption :) There may well be a 1.2.11 for security reasons, as not everyone will want to (or be able to) upgrade to BP 1.5 right away.

    Usually betas and RCs are not released through the auto-update channels. bbPress 2.0 is a special case, because it’s the first version that is a WordPress plugin. So there’s no risk of someone using a stable version switching to a non-stable version.

    Excellent. Thanks for the clarification.
