Today, we are pleased to release ElkArte 1.1.6. This release addresses few bugs and some minor security issues identified after the release of ElkArte 1.1.5. As this is a maintenance release, the majority of the updates are focused on bug fixes and increased stability.
One of these vulnerability was reported by https://www.netsparker.com/.
This is patch contains a security fix and we strongly encourage anyone running any previous version.
This release follows our semantic version (http://semver.org/) (MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH), meaning that third-point (x.x.X) releases should contain backwards-compatible bug fixes and enhancements, so for the most part you will not find new features in this release. Major new features will be reserved for second point versions (x.X.x).
Refer to the release notes (https://www.elkarte.net/community/index.php?topic=0.0) on the forum for a complete list of updates. (Release notes will be prepared at a later time.)

Congrats! Updated my sites. Just need to update this website now.
Congrats. I may have a use for this critter soon, so I'd better update my local and play around with it some.
As an aside, I can't seem to "like" the OP?
Yes, that's default Elkarte code. Nobody likes Ema anyway, so they coded it in as a safeguard against mistakes.
Odd, I can Like his first post here. I can Like the post you made before, but not this one.
Oh yes, likes must be disabled for announcements. But apparently not for @ahrasis
I can like all, is that a bug? :D
Now I can Like them all except yours. And that bugs me, but I like it. :D
Thanks for the patch. I had no problems with the installation. :)
Why are these forums still on 1.1.5 ? or just forgot to update footer ;)
I don't think it has been updated, yet...
Before the end of the week. :p
Thanks for the release emanuele. Keep up the wonderful work :)
Nicely updated my little forum. :D
Thank you !
i just update from 1.1.5 and at this time everything seems ok : thank you
here was a rollback to version 1.1.5 you can find out for what reason
1.1.5 is installed here, but we recommend downloading 1.1.6?
This is basically a development version where we test code before releasing it.
Yes, I've been lazy and I have not changed the version number. shrugs
Anyway I plan to upgrade to 2.0 as soon as I can write up the code I want to finish, so... I'm too lazy to change it now anyway. :D
When I saw version 1.1.5 here, I thought that 1.1.6 is not recommended to be installed on a real forum.
By the way: what is the highest version of PHP that 1.1.6 will handle?
Given that PHP 8 is due out in a couple of months, and with 7.2 hitting EOL in November, I'm wondering how (or if) 1.1.6 will handle versions higher than 7.2.
I am using 1.1.6 with PHP 7.3. There are some undefined index errors into elkarte log, beside that seems to work fine.
7.2 should be fine, 7.3 may flood the error log and actually some feature may break, but I'm not sure.
One or more of the messages of this topic have been moved to General ElkArte discussions (https://www.elkarte.net/community/index.php?board=6.0) - https://www.elkarte.net/community/index.php?topic=5853.0
- So any plans on the new php version of support for the forum? And what would be so bad if not being updated to a newer version of PHP?
How does the plans by the way look overall for ElkArte? What plans is there on the horizont? :)
I already mentioned my plans somewhere, nothing has changed since then.
