Upgrade to 4.1.13.2 today or tomorrow (21-22 July)

Recommended Posts

Steven P.    14,369

We plan to upgrade the forums today or tomorrow, this being because we need a dev to assist who has a day job and we're not sure if the issue we're currently facing is an easy fix, if it is then it will happen today, otherwise tomorrow.

 

We want to be sure we're on hand to deal with any issues directly after the upgrade, so also taking measures to have these people on hand :)

 

We're a few versions behind and this update adds a few nice features, as well as previous versions. 4.14.1 (coming soon) even adds PHP 7 support, which should speed things up a bit too.

 

Changed in 4.1.13.2

This is a maintenance release that only contains the following changes:

  • Database checker can sometimes cause database issues with incorrect index length
  • Performance update for Activity Streams
  • Performance update for sidebar widgets/blocks

This release also contains a security update specifically for those using IPS Connect that is regarding password hash comparison. If you use the IPS Connect system please update without delay.

 

Also included: 4.1.13.1

This is a maintenance update and includes only the following changes:

  • Uninstalling an application can create errors
  • Commerce custom fields may not work
  • Calendar repeating events can loop indefinitely
  • Query performance improvement on fetching topics

 

Also included: 4.1.13

This is a maintenance release to fix reported issues and add refinement to existing features. This release also contains a security improvement for older versions of PHP.

In a recent change to their API, Google now requires an API Key to access their Maps API. After upgrading to 4.1.13, follow our Google Maps guide to restore this integration. This is especially recommended if you are using Commerce which uses the API for address input autocompletion.

In addition to bug fixes and performance improvements, this release also includes following enhancements

  • New per-group setting to highlight posts made by certain groups. 2 theme settings control the color and border, which are editable in the easy theme editor.
  • New setting to make providing a billing address optional for purchases in Commerce.
  • Personal conversation management improvements:
    • Can now filter personal conversations to just read/unread.
    • Can now move multiple personal conversations into a different folder at once.
    • Can search by recipient/sender name.
  • Notifications about Calendar events now include the event date.
  • New setting to control which images sizes should have a watermark applied in Gallery.
  • New setting to control which IP pool to use for SparkPost if you have purchased dedicated IP addresses.
  • Better handling of upgrades if files have been modified.
  • The sidebar widget for showing Downloads files can now show just free or paid files.
  • When searching templates or CSS files in the AdminCP template editor, it will search for templates or CSS files with a name matching the term provided, in addition to searching the content of them.
  • When viewing a log in the AdminCP, it will now show you on which page the log occurred and by which member.
  • When the search index is being rebuilt, a message is now shown on the search results page to indicate why results may not be complete.
  • The "details" modal for applications and plugins now has a tab which shows the hooks associated with that application or plugin.
  • The placeholders that display on date/time inputs (e.g. "HH:MM") can now be translated.
  • Rebuilding the search index, and rebuilding posts after a 3.x upgrade now processes newest posts first for a more user-friendly experience after upgrading.
  • When a file is deleted, a log is created and a new setting controls how to keep these logs for.

 

The following Pages features are also included:

  • HTML pages are now editable via Designer's mode.
  • Ability to rename, or delete a group of Database templates
  • Ability to ensure the Page's title remains in all database generated links (categories, records, forms, etc)
  • Reciprocal linking when using relational fields
  • Date and time fields, and Yes/No fields are now filterable.
  • Filterable custom fields now available when creating a record feed block
  • Ability to make some custom fields unique, so that only one record per database can have the same value.
  • Ability to delete a folder in the media manager
  • Ability to use $record->field_key_name_here programatically to get and set values, instead of relying on $record->field_11 which may change when you export and import databases.

 

Also included: 4.1.12.3

This release fixes a single issue where bulk mails may send duplicates, especially on sites with multiple languages.

 

Also included: 4.1.12.2

This is a minor release to fix a small number of bugs:

  • Broken @mention links.
  • Merging members could cause follow records to be lost.
  • Email digests.
  • Incoming emails to Commerce.
  • Announcements expiring at the wrong time.
  • Error when editing database records or sidebar widget.
  • Error trying to establish external connection to certain servers.
  • Error redirecting from http to https.

Think the section in the middle needs different formatting (4.1.13) can't see anything with the Darkside theme.

 

Also noticed that the forum when down for a few minutes about an hour ago...what was related?

Updated the post formatting, hopefully it looks OK in darkside now.

We have a suspicion on why it is happening but can't be sure, so I don't really want to give anything away or credit whoever is doing it.

Likely some script kiddie with nothing better to do. Good luck with the upgrade!

Probably for the same reason stuff like Pokemon GO, PSN, & Xbox Live do.

I could not get on for the last 5 or 10 minutes. Msg said Maintenance in progress so I thought the upgrade was going on.

Maybe, whipping him.
