Dev Chat Summary for April 15, 2015

BuddyPress 2.2.2.1

Avatars, an extensible UI

  • (#6290) … and the feature’s committed to core! Thank you @im4th🙂
  • In addition to the improved profile photo uploader, a new camera feature using the device’s webcam video stream to take a snapshot of one’s profile photo has been added as an option for members using Firefox, Chrome, and Opera browsers. Browsers like iOS Safari, Opera Mini, and Internet Explorer which do not support getUserMedia can still be used to upload profile photo using the improved uploader.
  • More testing and feedback welcome.
