BuddyPress 2.4 “Pietro” is finally here! Last month the BuddyPress team were excited to release the latest version of their popular plugin – and we were equally excited to try it out, as we’ve been treated to over 100 improvements in this version. They’ve certainly been busy!

A brand new drag and drop feature that creates cover images for profiles and groups was debuted, as well as a unique home page for each group thanks to the new template hierarchy. BuddyPress 2.4 also has two new companion stylesheets to ensure it works perfectly with the upcoming default WordPress theme, Twenty Sixteen.

In addition, the accessibility has been significantly improved to front end templates and the dashboard screen, and a list of all other changes can be found in the BuddyPress Changelog.

BuddyPress 2.4 can be downloaded via the WordPress Plugin Directory or directly from your WordPress dashboard!
