BP Types UI
We took a decision about whether to package a plugin or directly merge the Member Types and Group Types Administration UI into BuddyPress. BP Types UI will be introduced in BuddyPress 7.0.0. You can already test/review the patch about it.
6.2.0 Maintenance release
We’ve released it as scheduled on August 6. See this announcement post for more info about it.
7.0.0 release cycle updates
@boonebgorges has committed a more permanent fix than the one we included in 6.2.0 about the deprecation of WordPress options containing the
black/white terms into their name and also remove these same terms from the xProfile component & moderation code (#8339). If you find some more places in our codebase where we can improve the language used for a better contributors inclusivity, don’t hesitate to add patches to the ticket.
@espellcaste requested and got a second opinion about #8011 & #8308. We then discussed about the best way to tackle the BP REST API’s #342 issue. @boonebgorges wrote a summary of what we decided into this comment.
@dcavins gave us updates about his progress on Network invites (see #8139). The new code will be added to the Members component and a new DB table will be created to handle opt-outs for non-site-members.
@im4th shared about his work on the BP Blocks’ front. A new block is now included to share posts/pages into the activity stream. It uses the Activity Block based post form. See this PR for more info about it.
7.0.0 release schedule
- 7.0.0-beta1: October 15
- 7.0.0 : December 1st
Unfortunately we ran out of time (@im4th ‘s fault!). @mercime & @vapvarun are doing great progress you can follow from this GANTT chart.
It will happen on August 12 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!
