Hello BuddyPress community!

🎶 All BuddyPress wants for Christmas🧑‍🎄 is you 🎵 … to test this new pre-release!

If you haven’t tested our first 10.0.0 beta release, here’s another opportunity to help us put the final touches on our next major release so that we make sure it will fit perfectly into your WordPress-/ BuddyPress-specific configuration.

Beta testing is very important, and we need you all, whether you’re a novice or an advanced user, a theme designer or a plugin author. Please contribute 🙏.

What has changed in 10.0.0-beta2?

  1. Custom Group Extensions: if you activated one or more plugins adding a new tab to your groups or if you built one or more plugins playing with the Group Extension API. It’s very important you take some time to make sure everything is working as expected in this area.
  2. Contribute to WordPress 5.9 beta tests as well! Let’s all check that BuddyPress pages are getting along well with Twenty Twenty-Two, the next WordPress default theme.
  3. The Private Messages component just got a new feature: messages thread exit. Users can now remove themselves from a conversation.

How to get 10.0.0-beta2?

The final release is slated for early January and we need your help to get there: please test 10.0.0-beta2. If you find a bug, please report it on our Trac or as a reply to this forum topic.

The BuddyPress core team is wishing you all: Merry Christmas 🎄
