The first release candidate for BuddyPress 5.0.0 is now available for a last round of testing!
This is an important milestone as we progress toward the BuddyPress 5.0.0 final release date. “Release Candidate” means that we think the new version is ready for release, but with more than 200,000 active installs, hundreds of BuddyPress plugins and Thousands of WordPress themes, it’s possible something was missed. BuddPress 5.0.0 is scheduled to be released on Monday, September 30, but we need your help to get there—if you haven’t tried 5.0.0 yet, now is the time!
PS: as usual you alternatively get a copy via our Subversion repository.
A detailed changelog will be part of our official release note, but you can get a quick overview by reading the post about the 5.0.0 Beta1 release.
Plugin and Theme Developers
Please test your plugins and themes against BuddyPress 5.0.0. If you find compatibility problems, please be sure to post to this specific support topic so we can figure those out before the final release.
Polyglots, we need you!
Thanks in advance for giving the release candidate a test drive!
