FluxBB 1.5.11 released

I am glad to finally announce the next patch release of FluxBB: version 1.5.11.

Feature updates

Please check out the details in the full changelog. In addition, this release fixes nine bugs, some of which affect...

Security

This release has benefited from contributions by jasonrohrer, nsuchy and Visman. Thank you!

I also want to thank TheBritain, Visman, Li of SEC Consult Vulnerability Lab and Omar Kurt of Netsparker for respectfully and responsibly disclosing security-relevant issues.


Project update

As you know, this is the first release in a long time. I have decided to continue giving FluxBB the maintenance it deserves. However, I need support to achieve this. Before I announce all of my plans, as a token of goodwill and to regain some trust, I plan to release the long-awaited v1.6 within the next few weeks. This release will clean up some of the dusty bits under the hood of FluxBB. By removing support for old PHP and browser versions, we can lay the foundations to carefully modernize the codebase, while staying true to the spirit of FluxBB. This means that 1.5.11 is the last release to support PHP 4 (which is horribly outdated). In addition, 1.6 will get some much-needed love in the realm of security hardening.


With that out of the way: please go ahead and download the new version on the downloads page. If you are upgrading an existing forum, you can find instructions and resources on the upgrade page.

Enjoy using FluxBB and stay tuned for more news on v1.6!

Re: FluxBB 1.5.11 released

Hi,

I'm really sorry Franz, but, for the moment, I won't update my forum to 1.5.11. This means I won't update the Mod Installer plugin and associated mods like VSABR.
In the names of those who participated in this update, Visman appears and I thought some of these changes had been taken into account, but the parser did not change by an iota between 1.5.10 and 1.5.11, which means, for example, that the "create_function()" (obsolete since PHP 7.2) have not been replaced by "function() {...}.
At my age, I am in favour of the slightest effort, which means that I absolutely do not want to have to reintegrate the modifications of Visman's parser (which I thank very much) after having updated to 1.5.11.
I am the only developer of Wampserver and I already have a lot of work to do with it, so I try not to change my workload.

With kind regards.

Re: FluxBB 1.5.11 released

Hi Otomatic,

thanks for your comments. As mentioned above, 1.6 will be coming soon, which fully supports PHP 7.2.
And no worries, I fully understand the single-developer thing. wink

Re: FluxBB 1.5.11 released

Hello,

Many thanks, the hdiff doesn't look so heavy, I think any security improvement is worth the upgrade.

Fluxbb is still the best forum CMS, all I miss is php 7.2 support but 7.1 is running fine for now wink

Best wishes for new year coming to all of you!

In the end, I thought I had to support the other single-developers. It only took me four hours to update my forum in 1.5.11, those four hours including the evolutions of my public and private mods and plugins. This is why these mods and plugins for FluxBB 1.5.11 are now available in Resources.

Cheer up, single-developers! wink

Please update Fluxbb, if you have to pay to have updates or new features more often as on phpbb it doesn't bother me.

Re: FluxBB 1.5.11 released

Hi,

Why do you want updates often?
A product, whatever it may be, that works well and provides the services for which it was designed, does not specifically need to be updated.
It is to confuse innovation with progress.
A French author, Henry de Montherlant, wrote fifty years ago:
Today, the ideal of progress is being replaced by the ideal of innovation: it is not a question of being better, it is only a question of being new, even if it's worse than before, and that's obviously the case.
And it is still relevant today.

Hello,

We were waiting for her, she arrived, hoping this update would restart the machine with the 1.6.

Did someone apply the update and have no problems after that? No bugs?

Well, I am trying to revive the project a bit, to provide those still using FluxBB solid, stable software - standing on solid feet. smile

Do you still run a FluxBB forum somewhere?

Re: FluxBB 1.5.11 released

Hi,

Dear blabla, before you made any disguised advertising for PhpBB and quoted my message, you should have read my answer afterwards and you would have seen that your quotation was not necessary.

The more shitty ads you do for any product, the less I'd want to use it.

Anyway, PhpBB is much too heavy for the use I want to make of it, it's a real gas plant.

You wear your nickname "blabla" very well, since you speak for nothing.

Re: FluxBB 1.5.11 released

Hello and thanks for this new release. I would to know how to update the french translation as it appear that the last french language pack is for v1.5.9

Edit: Otomatic, je peux t'aider à mettre la traduction française à jour si tu veux. Tu dois juste me donner la marche à suivre.

Re: FluxBB 1.5.11 released

This is not the answer to my question. My question is : how to know which strings have changed since v1.5.9 ? When I know this, I could translate the missing files and make a pull request on github.
