RC1

This is the 1st RC release of the 2.3.1 stable, that I hope to release on Friday.

The 'core' of this release in the new upgrade script, which is much more intelligent then the previous incarnations when it comes to performing SQL upgrades. In addition the upgrade script finally supports PostgreSQL forums, enabling the users who use PostgreSQL to upgrade their forums just as easily as their MySQL counter parts have been able to do.

Both upgrade and install scripts are now much smaller ~700kb, the reason is that I've decided to use zlib compression instead of previous base64_encoding. The result is a much smaller script. This should be pretty safe, since zlib extension is compiled by default with PHP and for Windows users is part of the standard distribution, so 99% of PHP enabled serves should have that extensions available for use.

Since this was a major revision of the upgrade script, I've personally tested it against nearly all versions starting 2.0.2 up until 2.3.1.

In addition to the major changes, I've also fixed a number of bugs that were found, those are listed below.

  • Some threadt optimizations.
  • Fixed rview redirection bug.
  • make selmsg use strftime and not time().
  • Added rename() handler for windows.
  • Fixed a bug with read/unread message handling.
  • Improved layout for message/thread deletion confirmation page.
  • Rewrite of forum's error handling mechanism.
  • Added an admin script allowing the admin to easily browse forum's error log.
  • Fixed a bug on logedin.inc.t dealing with last post link.
  • Updated the default SQL prefix.
  • lowercase some remaining upper case functions & defines.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented existing message from being set to sticky or announcements during editing.
  • Fixed a bug that prevent 'expire never' from working properly.
  • Fixed an invalid ICQ link in private messages.
  • Small optimizations in the spell checking code.

RC2

This is a relatively small bug fix release, that hopefully will be followed by the stable, 2.3.1 release on Wednesday. Here are the changes:

  • Reworked the email filter and added it to registration page.
  • Added gzip extension check to create_file_list script.
  • Updated Swedish translation.
  • Fixed a bug with removal of the sticky status from messages.
  • Fixed a bug in unconfirmed user deletion.
  • Change   to <font> </font> on logged in user list on the front page, so that IE can wrap the text. Apparently in IE,   is not considered a space.
  • Fixed the 1st unread message link.
  • Changed the few remaining <? to <?php.

Final

FUDforum 2.3.1 (stable) is now available for download. In relation to the 2.3.0 this is an bug fixing release with the only major change being the complete rework of the upgrade script. This change allows the upgrade script to upgrade both MySQL and PostgreSQL based forums to the latest release.

Since this is the 1st time PostgreSQL upgrade script available. Therefor, I advise caution to users of FUDforum with PostgreSQL back-end. It is HIGHLY recommended that you make a backup before attempting the upgrade.

For a complete list of changes since the 2.3.0 release please consult the 2.3.1RC1 and 2.3.1RC2 release announcements. There were a few changes since 2.3.1RC2, these are listed below.

  • Changed ' to ' in french translation to prevent parse errors.
  • Fixed a bug in email notification that prevented proper handling of a user specified headers.
  • Updated Chinese translation.
  • Fixed a poll query bug.
  • Fixed a number of bugs with subscribe/unsubscribe links
  • Fixed hard-coded t=msg inside split threads code
  • Fixed a bug with user name not appearing on the action field when the action is 'viewing profile of user X'
  • Make the default timezone EST
