The latest beta version of BuddyPress is now available for testing and should be officially released soon.
The plugin has been revised in a number of areas and one of the highlights of the new version is definitely the changes to the Template Pack, which now boasts improved accessibility. Cover Images for Members and Groups have also arrived, bringing great improvements to the plugin’s BP Attachment API.
A full list of improvements and changes are listed in the BuddyPress 2.4.0 Beta changelog, which all developers should check out if they’re looking to try out the beta version. Do remember to always back up your existing site before utilising a beta version of any plugin or theme, just in case.
To note: BuddyPress 2.4.0 requires the use of WordPress version 3.8 or above.
