The BuddyPress team are working hard on this innovative WordPress Plugin that brings a social layer to your self-hosted WordPress site. The next release is in beta testing with BuddyPress 1.9 Beta 1 released to testers.
WordPress 3.7 Beta 2 Released
WordPress 3.7 Beta 2 is out and ready for download. If you downloaded the Beta 1 then in theory Beta 2 should have updated automatically. This is still in development (a.k.a. lots of bugs!) so I do not recommend running this on your main site but to run it on another site or at least do not run on ones with high traffic.
The new features are as follows:
- Automatic background updates – so when beta 3 rolls around no need for another download!
- Search results – now ordered by relevance other than date.
- Password Meter – Strong passwords are important and this new meter will help get better passwords.
They need more beta testers so get on the downloading!
