 Hi walmarandrade,

 This is my fault.  I made changes to only use the current group slug with
 the `'slug'` parameter in r8050 for performance reasons and also because
 our internal code notes that the `'slug'` parameter is only used when
 `'type=single-group'`.  And the `'single-group'` type is only set when
 we're on a single group page.

 I guess devs like you were exploiting this behavior so you can query a
 group by slug!  I've attached a patch that should allow you to use `'type
 =single-group'` and `'slug'` like before in BP 1.9.

 In a future release, we'll make it so you can use the `'slug'` parameter
 without setting the `type` to `single-group`.

 I would also recommend querying by group ID with the `'include'` parameter
 whenever possible.
