The release candidate version of BuddyPress 1.2 is now ready for download and testing (svn link). Thank you to those who have contributed so far, we’ve closed over 125 tickets since we released the beta last week.

We’re almost there, but we still need your help with this final testing phase. We’re looking for testers on both standard WordPress and WordPress MU version 2.9.1 and above. You can also test the release candidate without installing on our testing community site.

As before you can find a list of known issues and a place to post bugs via the BuddyPress Trac installation.

There are also instructions for upgrading test installations from previous versions of BuddyPress on the codex.

Please do not post bugs in the comments as they may be missed.

Update: If you’re upgrading from 1.2 beta then you can simply overwrite your existing BuddyPress files, you do not need to follow the official upgrade instructions.
