Re: New BuddyPress 1.2 default theme
Yep, the original default is just renamed “classic” but has been updated. The wire has been completely removed from both the new and old theme and replaced with the new activity stream posting.
I will more than likely include the wire and status updates components in the “backwards compatibility” plugin for people to use with older themes.
I would consider it safe to begin working with the 1.2 theme. I expect there to be mostly bug fixes from now on. There is a chance thread favouring and/or reply notifications make it in before i freeze new stuff on Dec 30th, but it all depends on time. It should not change the theme though.
The final 1.2 should be out at the end of Jan.
