The second release candidate for BuddyPress 7.0.0 is now ready for an ultimate round of testing 🙂

What happened Since the first release candidate?

We’ve been working on getting the BP Nouveau Template Pack looks great into the next WordPress default theme “Twenty Twenty-One“. We believe BP Nouveau is now ready to enjoy this awesome theme whether you use its regular or dark mode.

BuddPress 7.0.0 is still slated for release on Wednesday, December 9, and if you haven’t tried 7.0.0 yet, it’s probably your last chance to do so!

Let’s test BuddyPress 7.0.0-RC2 with WordPress 5.6-RC3 to be sure both will be great as soon as they will be released! It’s also important to do so if you want to help us check BP Nouveau’s integration with Twenty Twenty-One is as nice as we think 😉

You can test the 7.0.0-RC2 pre-release in 4 ways :

A detailed changelog will be part of our official release note, but you can get a quick overview by reading the post about the 7.0.0 Beta1 release.

Polyglots contributors, let’s target 100% of translated strings.

Since previous release candidate we’ve reached the string freeze point of the 7.0.0 release schedule, so this one (RC2) does not introduce new strings to translate. Let’s use the days we have left to try to make BuddyPress fully available into your locale as soon as it is released. Thanks in advance for your help.

As usual, if you think you’ve found a bug, please let us know reporting it on this support topic and/or on our development tracker.
