With BuddyPress 1.5 due any day now, we’d like to invite you to take the next major release for a test drive. If you’d like to help us out or even if you’re just curious what’s coming in 1.5, check out the official test site at testbp.org. It’s always running the latest versions of BuddyPress and bbPress, has almost 30,000 members, and is the best way to help us make sure everything is ready for release while letting you be safely behind the driver’s seat.

As a general reminder, we’re keeping running list of API changes for 1.5 in our codex at codex.buddypress.org.

We are putting the finishing touches on the forums component now, and are aiming to release 1.5 as soon as this week. Keep an eye out!
