BuddyPress 1.0 Now Available

May 05, 2009

BuddyPress version 1.0 from WordPress, a suite of WordPress plugins and themes, is now available for download. Features include private messaging, extended profiles, and block tracking. Members of a BuddyPress enabled installation can be connected together by one member adding another as a “friend” and then the other member accepting the friendship request. Each member has a list of friends which are browsable. Members can click on each friend to see more information, or add them as their own friend. Member profiles are not restricted as a whole. Any member can create a group in BuddyPress. They then become the group administrator giving them heightened privileges within that group. The wire is a place where friends and other members can post messages to a specific piece of content within a BuddyPress installation. Also, activity streams aggregate all member activity across a BuddyPress installation.
