BuddyPress 1.5 is out!

Sep 21 2011 - 1 MINS READ

About a year and a half in the making, BuddyPress 1.5 is finally out. It is the result of thousands of hours of work from hundreds of volunteers from all over the world. Here's the complete list of features and fixes for BuddyPress 1.5.

If you are using the BuddyBoss theme, don't update to 1.5 just yet. We are wrapping up BuddyBoss 2.0 right now, a major update to our flagship theme that will provide compatibility with BuddyPress 1.5. We will release the product within the next several days. If you are already a BuddyBoss customer, you will get this update for free as usual.

Here's a sneak peak at what's coming in BuddyBoss 2.0:

  • Full compatibility with BuddyPress 1.5
  • Complete code rewrite – faster, cleaner, better documented, more stable
  • Much improved “Facebook” Wall
  • Photo uploading to the Wall, with profile photo galleries
  • Widgets galore! Optional widgetized sidebars on all BuddyPress components, including profiles and groups
  • All BuddyPress components are registered as WordPress pages and can be reordered within the admin
