FUDforum 2.3.1 was released on 11 September 2002. This release is no longer supported. Please upgrade to FUDforum 3.0.0 ASAP.
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.
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:
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.
