Hi All,

Some project status updates:


* New avatar functionality has been added to BuddyPress courtesy of  
code provided by Beau Lebens. Profile avatars can now be cropped to  
two different sizes.

* The extended profile component is now closing in on being feature  
complete. Justin Ball and Trenton Cameron are working on some  
additional features as outlined inhttp://trac.buddypress.org/ticket/12

* The extended profile component now includes fully functional  
template tags. This means profile data can be rendered easily in  
existing themes.

* The messaging component has been completely re-written. Messages are  
now threaded and viewed in a conversational style. The component now  
makes use of the included Wordpress AJAX hooks for inline replying to  

* Beau is working on "to:" field AJAX autocompletion that will  
autocomplete both friend names and group names.

* After a lengthy discussion in #buddypress on IRC, I am putting  
together a development roadmap this week. This will outline the  
functionality we want completed for each tagged release. I will be  
adding this to trac. I have just today tagged version 0.1 at:http://svn.buddypress.org/tags/

* The groups component is being worked on by Chris Taylor when he has  
spare time. He has done a great job integrating his work with the  
BuddyPress environment so far. The next step with this component is to  
create custom template tags so that groups can be rendered within  
themes. Once I have completed my work on the messaging component I  
will be helping Chris with this.


I will be emailing the list once the roadmap is complete. This should  
give people a solid idea on feature breakdown, direction and the  
current status of our push towards 1.0. If there are any developers  
out there who would like to give some of their time to the project,  
please feel free to email me at anytime (or drop into #buddypress on  

As always, bugs can be reported at: http://trac.buddypress.org/
