Available today for developer testing is BuddyPress 1.5 Beta 3. We’re keeping our momentum going and squashed enough bugs in Beta 2 that we want to give it another trip around the block to make sure it’s solid.

If you are a BuddyPress plugin author, please take the time to test your plugins against the latest code and let us know if something isn’t working quite right. We have an extensive change-log for 1.5 and we want everyone to transition from 1.2 as painlessly as possible.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one… Please don’t run BuddyPress Beta software on your live production site. We know there will be quirks and we are keeping up with your bug reports as they come in. Install BuddyPress 1.5 on a local installation or a test site, and let us know if you find anything that isn’t working the way it should. The end of August is upon us, and we’re ramping up for a release in the coming days.

You can download BuddyPress 1.5 Beta 3 today, from the bottom of our Trac page.
