BuddyPress, provider of social network components for integration with WordPress, has recently announced the release of V5 of the popular plugin. This latest iteration includes an all-new BP REST API and a new BP Invitations API.
The new REST API powers enhanced group member management tools via an improved interface. Additionally, the API introduces the possibility of block creation, taking full advantage of WordPress 5.0. BP REST includes endpoints for members, groups, activities, private messages, screen notifications, and extended profiles.
BuddyPress 5.0 also includes the release of a new Invitations API that aims to simplify the process of managing group invites and membership requests. Developers can check out the documentation for the new APIs here.
