FluxBB 1.4.4 released

We have now released FluxBB 1.4.4!

Warning: There is a bug in FluxBB 1.4.4 which prevents authentication when using PHP 4. PHP 4 reached end-of-life over 3 years ago, however if you still use it, we recommend you either use a development snapshot (not necessarily stable!) or wait for FluxBB 1.4.5.

This release has a couple of changes worth noting, so please read below before upgrading!

Changes include:

For a full list of changes, see here.

Important notes:

  • When performing an upgrade the search index will want rebuilt and the posts will want re-parsed. On large boards this can be a slow process, and will put the server under high load while it runs. While recommended, this isn't absolutely necessary. If you want to skip the rebuilding simply update the config items "o_searchindex_revision" and "o_parser_revision" to 2, in the config table (before running the upgrade). For anyone wondering if it's worth skipping or not - The search indexer now strips out UTF-8 punctuation/symbols more aggressively when splitting words. If you have a primarily English board you can probably skip this.

  • The cookie has been changed to include a hash, to prevent tampering with either the user_id or expire time. This means the structure of the cookie has changed, and will result in everyone needing to log in again after the upgrade.

  • The stopwords.txt lists from all installed language packs are now combined into 1 list, which is cached. This means you should delete all .php files in the cache folder when installing/removing a language pack, or updating any stopwords.txt file.

  • The minimum required PHP version has increased to PHP 4.4.0.

We would like to give thanks to Peter Maxwell for alerting us to the insecurity of the expiration time in the cookie, and helping provide a fix as well as general advice. Since this release improves the security of the cookie we would strongly recommend upgrading.

As usual, downloads can be found on the download page and in the download folder.

As always please remember to do a backup of both your files and database!

If you have any problems or spot any errors please let us know! smile

Re: FluxBB 1.4.4 released

Sorry if i "up" this, but i really cant remember how to manage the git stuff... I have to reinstall the client and read again everything (as i said somewhere I reinstalled everythings on my pc and so....), it would be too longer (considering that for now I'm alone in the itailan translation management i think i would die dooing that too smile ).

thanks again,
J

Thanks Reines smile
I already had a feedback about that package. Olivier found a typo : http://fluxbb.fr/forums/profile.php?id=3358
Could you please change this in common.php French lang file on github?
Find on line 105 :

'Topic searches'        =>    'Dicussions :',

Replace it by:

'Topic searches'        =>    'Discussions :',

Just add a "s" before the "c" wink
Thanks in advance...
The fixed package: http://code.google.com/p/jojaba-code/do … 4-fix1.zip wink

Great work guys. I am a big supporter of FluxBB. I use your forum software on a few of my boards. Keep up the good work, and don't stop developing.

Re: FluxBB 1.4.4 released

I didn't had time to test it yet, but I am a little unsure about the release policy. Some changes of the last updates to 1.4 might be better in a 1.5 branch. That of course depends on how you define it.

For minor updates/ bug fix releases I would suggest:
1) No string changes (otherwise you break translations)
2) No database schema or content changes
3) No changes that would break custom layouts, css etc.

This would make the lives of site admins, translators or anybody doing modifications easier. On the other side I know that keeping compatibility limits the possibilities of developers and can be annoying.

And btw: A defined release schedule like e.g. KDE has can be helpful for all parties. They release compatible bugfix releases every month and major updates every six months.

I still think that the most urgent thing is the "plugin system". wink With this feature (i know, i know, 2.0 will have it, but I cant wait smile ), all kind of release would be extremly fast and easy to upgrade. Cause you can manage all of your personalizations via your own plugins.

Re: FluxBB 1.4.4 released

Hmm, i am lost, i must update the language to work with 1.4.4 but also i like update it to last revision for FluxBB.

I am not good with git, so not sure about this idea:

branch the Languages to 1.4.4 (maybe in next release 1.4.5)
1 - Language maintainer update that branch and always merge it to the master
2-  Languages maintainer update the master also to be up to date with last modification.

I dont know if it possible the git can auto merge branch to master for more easy work.

Due to the use of unicode character properties in regular expressions (required to properly handle censoring/splitting non-latin characters).
