#9032 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Prepare readme.txt for 12.0.0

Reported by: imath's profile imath Owned by: netweb's profile netweb
Milestone: 12.0.0 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Build/Test Tools Keywords: has-patch


12.0.0 is a sensitive release as we expect some 3rd party BuddyPress plugins won't be ready for the BP Rewrites API.

Instead of the regular link to the version changelog, I suggest we use a 12.0 upgrade notice a bit more elaborated.

= 12.0.0 =
- See:
- Before upgrading to version 12.0.0 & if you are using one or more third party BuddyPress plugins that have not been updated lately, please make sure to download and activate the "BP Classic" backwards compatibility Add-on from your "Add New Plugin" Dashboard menu.
