First of all, we’d like to thank all the contributors who tested the first beta of our next major release. Beta testing is very important to us as it’s a good way to check the improvements we brought to BuddyPress are behaving as expected on your WordPress/BuddyPress configurations.

BuddyPress 7.0.0-beta2 is now available for testing, and we’d love to have your feedbacks about it!

Since 7.0.0 beta1:

  • We fixed some issues about the newly introduced features (BP Activity Embed block : 12763 ; BP Types Admin UI : 12764, 12767, 12775, 12776 & 12778).
  • We improved the performance of the BP xProfile component : 12768 & 12781.
  • We changed Member Types to behave more like Group Types: 12765, 12767 & 12778.
  • We gave a default avatar to the BP Blogs on multisite configurations : 12772 & 12779.
  • We fixed issues with the BP Nouveau Template pack : 12773 & 12774.
  • We improved the BP Invitations feature : 12771.

We’ve also updated the 7.0.0 release schedule : the 7.0.0 final release is now scheduled to December 9.

And we need you to get there: do test the 7.0.0-beta2 release so that we can eventually solve issues you might find with your plugins, themes or specific WordPress/BuddyPress configurations.
