BuddyPress: BuddyPress 4.0.0 Release Candidate 1

BuddyPress: BuddyPress 4.0.0 Release Candidate 1

BP 4.0.0 Release Candidate 1 is now available. This package contains the code that we think we’ll ship as BuddyPress 4.0.0 later in November. If you build BuddyPress plugins or themes, you’re encouraged to give the RC a thorough look in a test environment.

Important changes in 4.0.0 include:

  • BuddyPress data exporters (for WP 4.9.6+), including a new ‘Export Data’ Settings subtab, where users can request an export from the front end
  • Integration into the WordPress privacy policy system (for WP 4.9.6+)
  • Improvements to Nouveau and other BP interfaces on mobile devices
  • Bug fixes for emails, Nouveau, BP’s nav tools
  • Improved compatibility with WP 4.9.x and 5.0

See the 4.0.0 milestone for more info.

Download the 4.0.0 release candidate from wordpress.org: https://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/buddypress.4.0.0-RC1.zip. As always, remember that this is pre-release software, and we don’t recommend running it on a production site.
