@mercime has decided to wait for 6.0.0 final release to launch the survey. We will be able to add a link to it inside the “Hello BuddyPress 6.0.0” screen (See #8270). There will be 17 questions into the survey. If one of the team members wishes to request a new one, the deadline to make it happen is the day before the release date.
Progress about 6.0.0 release
6.0.0-beta1 was released on March 31 at 10:43 PM (WP Plugins directory’s time) : just before the end of march as announced 💪⏱. The WP Tavern wrote a great post about it and shared a very interesting feedback that has been converted to this ticket (#8271) since. The patch will soon be committed.
@johnjamesjacoby will try to find a way to get more information about future beta/RC downloads as we are always worrying to have very few feedbacks about them.
@rayisme is requesting your feedback about the 2 new exportable privacy data types, please do so adding your comment to this ticket: #8266.
He also fixed a very annoying error about a deprecated WP privacy function: it’s already available into the 5.0 branch and will be shipped during our next maintenance release. FYI: the problem is WP moved the deprecated function into a file that is only loaded into the
@im4th will package a new beta release (the second) on April 15.
BP REST API documentation update.
@im4th said he was sorry he couldn’t find the time to write some explanations about how to updated the documentation. He has since done using the Swagger UI tool. Here are the explanations (NB: in this Gist, there’s a file over the
bp-custom.php one, you will also need).
@espellcaste asked about the BP GraphQL documentation’s ticket on Meta Trac since it has not evolved for a while. 😬
@mercime has suggested to include a link to the developer.bp.org’s site inside the BuddyPress.org main menu. She wrote a ticket about it on Meta Trac. 💡👍
@im4th thanked Varun & IAmTheWebb for their very interesting contributions to the dev chat: everyone is welcome to do like them 🤝.
