Better Activity Stream:
The activity stream has been improved on BuddyPress 2.0, now there is a much better interaction between activity and blog comments. Also, teh system will inform you when there is new items waiting for you.
Now, the most important development of BuddyPress 2.0 is the improved performance, personally I always wanted BuddyPress to look at and do something about improving loading time.
Sometimes, it becomes really frustrating when you need to wait every time the site loads.
The most successful BuddyPress sites are highly dynamic, with a steady stream of new visitors and new content. This dynamic nature means that BuddyPress is a highly database-driven platform, and database performance is often a bottleneck when it comes to scaling BP sites. BuddyPress 2.0 tackles this problem head-on.
We’ve streamlined some of the most common problematic queries – such as those in the Members and Activity directories – to shave up to 95% of the query time off of certain individual queries.
