BuddyPress Download ScreenThe first beta release of completed BuddyPress components and themes is now available via the download page.

Each component and theme in this beta stage is feature complete for its 1.0 version. The purpose of the beta is to weed out any bugs not found in the pre-release stage and ramp up the plugins to production quality.

If you install BuddyPress and give it a test run, we’d really appreciate your feedback and bug reports in trac. You can also find a list of known bugs.

Thank you to everyone who has helped make this first beta a reality. It’s been ten months of hard work to get to this stage. We’re almost there, there’s only a little bit further to go.
