For this meeting we chose to focus on defining the next features the team will work on for the 7.0.0 development cycle as well as first information about the 7.0.0 release schedule.
7.0.0 Features whishlist
@im4th first thanked the contributors who submitted tickets to our Call for Tickets. If you haven’t had the chance to add yours yet, you still have time: the call’s deadline is set to June 17.
- @dcavins will focus on the Network invitations & Membership requests feature 🧗♂️.
- @boonebgorges will work on improving the xProfile privacy mechanism and possibly on a way to improve how BuddyPress deals with data updates during our upgrade tasks 🥋.
- @mercime and @vapvarun will lead the effort to design a great & brand new BuddyPress theme for the BuddyPress.org network 💪. @im4th thinks it’s a very interesting move we can eventually use to make a new BuddyPress theme available for all users.
- @im4th will try to significatively progress on the Attachments / Media Component ground and will work on building new BP Blocks.
7.0.0 Release Schedule
At the end of our meeting we agreed on this schedule:
- 7.0.0-beta1: October 15
- 7.0.0 : December 1st
I’ve just updated the 7.0.0 milestone: let’s start contributing to this great release!
It will happen on June 17 at 19:00 UTC and of course in #BuddyPress. If you have ideas or questions, feel free (and we are strongly encouraging you) to comment this summary to share them!
