BP Dev-Chat summary : November 9, 2022

Unfortunately @vibethemes wasn’t able to join the meeting to share with us his progress about the BP Standalone Theme he’s been working on. We adapted our agenda to talk about 11.0.0-beta1 and 11.0.0 changes needing docs.

11.0.0-beta1 first feedbacks

  • An issue was raised into our Support forum topic. We believe this issue is specific to the active WordPress theme as we’re not able to reproduce with one of the WordPress default bundled themes.
  • Within the same forum topic, another minor layout improvement was discussed and later fixed in #8761.

11.0.0 changes needing docs

@dcavins & @im4th selected the tickets they will post documentation about in this site.

  • @dcavins will deal with #4184 (Activity loop arguments change) & #4075 (xProfile groups loop arguments change)
  • @im4th will work on #8679 (restrict BP Assets loading to community areas) & #8687 (Deprecated code loading).
  • About this last ticket @johnjamesjacoby suggested to rename the constant to load all deprecated code to BP_LOAD_DEPRECATED. We all agreed it was the right way of naming it. The change has been committed to Trunk version.
  • Finally the change about the .webp image format support will be documented by the first of us to have finished documented their tickets.

11.0.0 schedule reminder

  • RC: December 1st, 2022.
  • Release: December 14, 2022.

Open floor

During this part of the chat, we took the time to help @dcavins to fix PHPUnit testing suite, if like him you had the right idea to use the one we include into the development version of the plugin based on Docker, you can read this discussion to help you restart from scratch!

@johnjamesjacoby shared his intent to improve BuddyPress.org typography especially into the site’s Forum.
