- Support for the JW Player, video and contact form shortcodes have been removed. If you are still using these features (which were disabled by default years ago), do not update.
- If you are using PHP version 5.2.4 or below please upgrade before installing this update.
- The theme now includes a buddy.pot translation file instead of buddy.po and buddy.mo files. This file is identical to buddy.po and when saved generates the .po and .mo files. Nothing has changed, you still need buddy.po and buddy.mo and they can stay in the buddy/languages/ folder but you now also have the option of adding these files to wp-content/languages/themes/ or inside your child theme so they ere not overwritten when updating the theme. For more information please see Translating The Theme (Localisation).
- Dropped Internet Explorer 8 support
- If you have used custom CSS many class and ID names have changed
- Deprecated Community Stats plugin, use new GP Statistics widget instead
- Deprecated contact form shortcode, use Contact Form 7 plugin instead
- Removed Icon Color options as icon styling now related to text color
