BP Labs 1.2-beta-1

BP Labs 1.2-beta-1 should be available on WordPress.org, soon. What’s new?

  • Added caching to @mentions autosuggest; it speeds up multiple requests for the same query.
  • Added Activity Stream Spam experiment (requires BuddyPress 1.5).

Activity Stream Spam requires BuddyPress 1.5; it won’t do anything on earlier versions of BuddyPress. 1.5 is due out soon, and is itself currently in beta (go test!). The admin backend for un-spamming (or “hamming”) activity items looks like this.

Please note you’ll need to have WordPress’ standard Akismet plugin set up, configured and working. In beta 1, there is no way of manually marking an activity item as spam; Akismet will use its best judgement.

I wanted to get this out as soon as possible so people can (hopefully) test the core functionality, in order for a final release a little while after BuddyPress 1.5 goes out. Let me know in comments any bugs or feedback.
