A quick note about WordPress 3.2
It’s likely that WordPress 3.2 will be released very soon – anywhere from the next few hours to the next few days. One big change in WP 3.2 will affect BP users: the version of jQuery shipped with WP will jump from 1.4.4 to 1.6.1. (Read more about the change on the WP development blog.)
BP’s packaged theme, BuddyPress Default (or bp-default, for short) makes extensive use of jQuery, and you’ll find that the version of bp-default in BP 1.2.8 is not 100% compatible with WP 3.2. Not to worry – we are planning a same-day BuddyPress release, BP 1.2.9. However, due to various technical reasons beyond our control, the jQuery in bp-default BP 1.2.9 will not work properly with earlier versions of jQuery.
What this means, in a nutshell, is that you should upgrade your production BP website to WP 3.2 at the same time that you upgrade BP to 1.2.9. Conversely, if you do not plan to upgrade to WP 3.2, do not upgrade BP to 1.2.9 when it comes out.
