Description

According to WP statistics the 5.5 and 5.6 versions are under 5% of WordPress installs, that's why I suggest to bump WP required version to 5.7 in BuddyPress 11.0.0.

Hi there,

I agree to bump the core version.

  • I can confirm it doesn't break anything.
  • We don't use any deprecated functions.

8709.patch looks good to me but I believe there are two missing parts:

  1. disallowed keys backward compatibility for before 5.5, I think we don't need it anymore
  2. dropping support of deprecated version of PHPMailer

Raise WordPress required version to 5.7

BuddyPress 11.0.0 will require at least WordPress 5.7. The BP Development team took this decision according to our guideline about WordPress version compatibility.
