BuddyPress 6.2.0 beta

Wed, 22 Jul 2020 22:19:50

Hi BuddyPress contributors!

We will soon publish a maintenance release (6.2.0) to prepare BuddyPress to some changes that will introduce WordPress next major release (5.5.0). WordPress 5.5.0 is slated for August 11, and we’d love you to help us use the coming days to make sure your favorite community engine is ready to fully enjoy this new version of WordPress.

BuddyPress 6.2.0 will make sure our BP Email feature is using the 6.0 version of PHPMailer when WordPress 5.5.0 is installed on your site and will carry on using its version 5.2 when your WordPress version is lower (4.8 to 5.4 for the supported versions of our 6.0 branch). For more information about it, please have a look to this ticket.

If you’re a plugin or a theme developer and are extending our BP Email feature, we strongly advise you to test your code with the latest pre-release of WordPress 5.5.0 (eg: 5.5.0-beta3) and BuddyPress 6.2.0-beta1.

WordPress 5.5.0 will also remove the jQuery Migrate library, as BuddyPress uses a lot jQuery, we’ve been checking the impact of this removal. We haven’t found any issue so far, but if you do, please warn us about it commenting this ticket.

A detailed changelog will be part of our official release notes, but, until then, you can check out this report on Trac for the full list of fixes.

You can test the 6.2.0-beta1 pre-release in 2 ways :

Thanks in advance for your contributions.

BuddyPress 6.0.0 “iovine’s”

Wed, 13 May 2020 17:55:30

This major release introduces the first two BuddyPress Blocks!!

We are very excited to announce the immediate availability of BuddyPress 6.0.0 code-named “iovine’s“. You can get it clicking on the above button, downloading it from the WordPress.org plugin directory or checking it out from our Subversion repository.

If you’re upgrading from a previous version of BuddyPress, it’s always a good idea to back-up your WordPress database and files ahead of time.

You can review all of the changes in this 6.0.0 release in the release notes. Below are a few of the key features we know you are going to love!

BP Blocks

BuddyPress 6.0.0 comes with two awesome new blocks for your WordPress Editor: Members and Groups. Made available from the BuddyPress blocks category of your WordPress Block menu, these lovely blocks let you insert a rich content block featuring a specific Member or Group from your community site inside any WordPress Post or Page.

If you’re an Advanced BuddyPresser and wish to fine-tune the BuddyPress blocks for your community site, learn more in this section of our development note about these new blocks.

The BP REST API is now complete!

In 5.0.0, we introduced the first REST API endpoints and provided reference documentation for them. In 6.0.0, we are adding the 6 remaining endpoints you were waiting for: Blogs, Blog avatar, Friends, Group Cover Image, Member Cover Image, and User Signups. You can now build full-featured applications using the BuddyPress REST API!

BP Nouveau has been improved

Does your theme support wide layouts? Awesome! The BP Nouveau template-pack now supports wide (and really, really wide) content areas! This is the first of the many improvements we are bringing to our default set of styling components. It never looked so beautiful in your theme.

Under the hood

6.0.0 includes more than 80 changes to improve your BuddyPress experience as users, as contributors to our code and as contributors to our translations. The biggest change moves local avatar management to the Members component. Read more about it in this development note.

We want to hear your voice

Knowing how you use BuddyPress and getting your point of view about future BuddyPress development is very important to us. Please, take some time to help us decide what’s best for the BuddyPress project.

BuddyPress iovine’s

If you come to Paris (France), you’ll probably want to visit the Louvre Museum. The greatest Pizza restaurant around is Nicola Iovine’s place. You’ll fall in love with how he cares to respect culinary traditions, share authentic flavors, select great quality products imported from Italy and use the real neapolitan pizza dough.

Simply delicious, just like BuddyPress 6.0.0 😉

BuddyPress 6.0.0 Release Candidate 2

Sun, 03 May 2020 03:27:41


The second release candidate for BuddyPress 6.0.0 is now available for an ultimate round of testing!

Since the first release candidate and thanks to the WordPress Polyglots Team (Many thanks to @tobifjellner & @ocean90), we’ve found an issue involving the translation of our new BuddyPress Blocks. The BP Blocks are using JavaScript i18n functions and a specific task of our build process was preventing GlotPress from identifying the strings needing to be translated.

We believe we’ve fixed this issue and this new release candidate will help us confirm it.

BuddPress 6.0.0 is still slated for release on Thursday, May 14, and if you haven’t tried 6.0.0 yet, it’s probably your last chance to do so!

You can test the 6.0.0-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 6.0.0 Beta1 release.

Polyglots contributors, there’s some extra work.

This release candidate should introduce around 50 new strings to translate (the ones that were not included previously due to the issue), so thanks in advance for your comprehension and for your help .

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