Follow BP Labs Experiments on Its New Dev Blog

A couple of weeks ago I posted about the launch of the BP Labs plugin, a continuing project of core BuddyPress developer Paul Gibbs.

Today Paul announced a new dev blog for the BP Labs plugin and invited others to join in. He recently added some caching for @mentions to make them work faster. However, the most exciting news is the next lab that Paul is aiming to launch: Akismet support for the BuddyPress activity stream. This would enable another level of spam protection from within BuddyPress to help keep your community free of unwanted or inappropriate posts.

Grab the trunk version of the plugin from Google code: and follow BP Labs experiments on the new dev blog for all the latest news.
