BuddyBoss 2.0 is finally available!
BuddyBoss 2.0 is available as of today. We apologize about the long wait - it took us some time to finish up all of the features as we wanted to make sure we were releasing a polished product. BuddyBoss 2.0 is by far the most significant update to BuddyBoss yet. It’s a complete code rewrite. We’ve listened to our customers and included all of the highly requested features, as well as full compatibility with BuddyPress 1.5 and bbPress. We’re really excited about this release and we hope you love it!
