1.7 is now out and it’s called “Totonno” and apparently it’s the best version ever.
They’ve been hinting at it for quite some time (although it’s not like it’s a secret or anything) but with your WordPress theme compatibility now active you won’t have to dig or search for a BuddyPress theme anymore.
This is a significant boon for site owners as the paring down of things to check-off in terms of compatibility is a huge win. Better group management and administration also received a big boost with better and more powerful ways for members to connect. You can bulk-delete groups, edit group settings, and manage membership without ever leaving the admin panel.
This is going to be a busy week for many BuddyPress site managers as they upgrade their sites and optimize their core experience.
One plugin, if I may, that might be of interest to throw in the mix is the release of Achievement 3.2 that’s seen a big jump for BuddyPress – this video here explains all you need to know about it:
3.2 was released just a few days ago with a major upgrade for full integration with BuddyPress user profiles and the activity stream.
So, what are you waiting for? This is a big week for BuddyPress users – jump on it! What else are you stoked about for these releases? Are you a WordPress site owner that might jump into the use of BuddyPress with these new features and with theme compatibility?
