Main features for 6.0.0
BP REST API (improvements and remaining endpoints)
@espellcaste has been working on fixing some issues posted on the GH repository. With @im4th they discussed quite a time about one specific issue that is now resolved (many thanks to @espellcaste for his work on it 💪). About the tasks scheduled for 6.0.0, you can take a look at this GH project. Here are the remaining endpoints:
- Member’s cover endpoint
- Group’s cover endpoint
- Friends endpoint
- Blogs endpoint
- Blog’s cover endpoint
- Blog’s avatar endpoint
- Signups endpoint
FYI this Core ticket should also be fixed for 6.0.0: #8156 (Move Avatar into the Members component).
@karmatosed has shared sketches and thoughts about the first 2 BuddyPress blocks we will add in 6.0.0:
@im4th will start working asap on the first implementations of these 2 blocks building an autocomplete control to select the member or the group to display. @dcavins suggested this could be a good opportunity to review our Suggestion API so that it uses the BP REST API.
Network invitations & Membership requests.
@im4th also shared his wish to use WordPress Rewrites instead of our legacy way of building URLs, see #4954. A possible way of progressing about it could be to use a plugin… He will look into it to see if it needs some Core adjustments.
Discussing about the previous points took us a while and we decided to talk about the survey during our next dev-chat.
@espellcaste cannot attend our dev-chats at the date/time they are scheduled. I’ve published this doodle to let us try to find a new day / time of the week for our meetings. I’ve left the current day / time: choose it if you prefer to leave the day / time unchanged.
