FluxBB 1.4.1 released

We have just released FluxBB 1.4.1, our first maintenance release of our 1.4 branch. This fixes a few minor bugs as well a an XSS vulnerability in search.php. We also fixed a bug in viewtopic.php with SQLite that rendered the page unusable in some cases.

In detail, this release fixes:

  • XSS vulnerability in search.php

  • viewtopic.php unstable in SQLite

  • Update script incorrectly depending on a latin1 connection

  • Insufficient input validation in admin_users.php

  • Wrong post time in delete.php

  • CSS issue in Opera 10.6 and Chrome

  • Undefined index notice in post.php

  • New BBCodes were not removed from search words

  • Number of rows in database still showed all the rows in the database, not just the FluxBB-related ones

  • Notice error in plugin menu

  • Comment typo in example plugin

  • Problems censoring words containing non-latin characters

We also made some usability enhancements:

  • Only show censoring in moderator menu when moderators are privileged accordingly

  • Display the censoring status (enabled / disabled) on the censoring page for admins

  • Hide incompleted fields in profile page

  • Nicer error messages for signature length limit errors

Because we had planned more improvements for 1.4.1, which were postponed due to the security issue, there will be a 1.4.2 version fairly soon. This release will also address a bug in the update script that can cause problems if there are multiple users with very similar usernames. Do not forget to make backups of your files and, more importantly, your database, before any upgrade!
My personal recommendation for anybody who still hasn't updated their 1.2.* board is to wait for 1.4.2 so that the process of upgrading is simpler and only has to be done once.

There are no known security issues in FluxBB 1.2.22.

Note: There were some minor changes to the language files which means that all language packs other than the English one have to be updated.

As always, you can download the release on the downloads page. A patch file to simplify upgrading a modded installation of FluxBB can be found in the release folder.

Re: FluxBB 1.4.1 released

Good job! But I'd like to know, like Otomatic, if we will have a hdiff or not... I worked a lot in FluxBB 1.4.0 and I must update my forum manually, but it is impossible for the moment hmm.


Please excuse my bad english, I'm french tongue.

Re: FluxBB 1.4.1 released

Hello,

Not a "patch" file but a hdiff like this that was here

http://fi.fluxbb.org/download/releases/1.2.22/hdiff/hdiff-fluxbb-1.2.21_to_fluxbb-1.2.22.html

That was a html file that see two parts
- 1 - On the left the old lines
- 2 - On the right the modified or added or suppressed lines with different colors

Because I don't know how (or with what ?) « read » and understand patch file.

The patch only works with a Linux distribution, AND if the lines are not modified... Because it is based on the lines' number.

Re: FluxBB 1.4.1 released

Should be. We did have an automated release script which would package the releases then generate a patch and hdiff, though since moving to Git we haven't got around to rewriting it, so 1.4.0 and 1.4.1 have been packaged manually and I didn't think to do the hdiffs.

Re: FluxBB 1.4.1 released

Yeah, I think I'll sit down to fix it before the release of 1.4.2. Creating the hdiff did help to find out a way...

Re: FluxBB 1.4.1 released

Hi,
A "error" in the hdiff because the page is iso 8859-1 by default:

fluxbb-1.4.1/admin_reports.php

63:         $post_id = ($cur_report['pid'] != '') ? '<span>»&#160;<a href="viewtopic.php?pid='.$cur_report['pid'].'#p'.$cur_report['pid'].'">Post #'.$cur_report['pid'].'</a></span>' : '<span>»&#160;'.$lang_admin_reports['Deleted'].'</span>';

Re: FluxBB 1.4.1 released

how does one upgrade using the patch files?
or would another way be to download and extract the new version on top of the old one and browse to the index and it will prompt for upgrade??

Re: FluxBB 1.4.1 released

You are only supposed to update using the patch file, if you have a heavily modified board and don't want to reinstall all these modifications. Else it works just as you described.

If you have a modified board and just want to apply the changes by hand, take a look at the hdiff.

Actually it's whatever your browser defaults to, which in my case is UTF-8 tongue You are right though, it should be specified. I'll see if I can modify the hdiff tool to do it.
