Today, we are pleased to release ElkArte 1.0.2. This release fixes a number of bugs and issues that were found or reported since the release of 1.0.1. As this is a maintenance release, the majority of the updates are focused on bug fixes and increased stability. This is a recommended update for everyone running the 1.0.1 version.
Some notable updates in 1.0.2 include: Greatly simplify the avatar settings and permissions
Add quote split button to the editor toolbar Sphinx will now use the mysqli interface as the rest of the forum does
Sphinx not working with 2.0.x versions resolved Improve security around db backup downloads
Updated dependencies for superfish, cssmin and hover intent to address various UI issues Update sceditor to fix issues with smart phones and when inserting code blocks in WYSIWYG mode and improved handling of pasted html in the editor
Split topics by pick messages did not respect post message and move to board Certain custom fields were not updated when requested at registration
Server settings were being unset under certain conditions (un-checking of options like maintenance and persistent connections) Add ability to skip styles during html to bbc conversion
Curl was not redirecting properly when redirect link contained get values Addition of several new hooks to help with addon writing
Prevent unnecessary removal of compiled JS/CSS during normal maintenance (performance)
* Layout improvements and fixes in many areas, including responsive theme updates

It is vital that all sites update to this release, thank you for your continued support!
Link leads to 1.0.1 release notes. ;)
Thanks for update, good work :)
Ouu, gratz! :p
Congrats on the new release, will be updating tonight.
Thank you! Great work of you all. :)
When patch 1.0.2 will be merged with 'master'? I'm asking, because translation is not updated yet
I knew there was something I missed!
Sent the PR:
let's wait few minutes to let travis complete the build. ;)
And of course thanks for noticing it!! :D
The news fader still says "ElkArte 1.0.1 has been released!" ;)
Now is a bit late, tomorrow... :-[
Should be updated now
I'm having an issue updating. When I submit the patch installation page, it hangs for about 5 minutes, then returns to the submission page again, no errors, no confirmation. What am I doing wrong?
Also, if using CloudFlare, it gives a 524 Timeout error. Is there a way to execute the update without using HTTP?
Updated without a problem thank you, sorry @ant59
you had problems.
Try uploading the unzipped package.
Don't tell anyone, but I feared something like this may happen at some point, though I was hoping not at that level of patches... :-\
The problem is very likely a timeout due to the amount of work it takes to parse the modifications xml file.
I'm not sure unzipping is enough, but it may at least help out.
As time goes on, I hope that replacing entire files will be the normality and that should reduce the amount of resources required to do the update. For the next releases we just have to remember that micro releases have to be smaller... :(
Sorry for the troubles ant59.
Seems to have turned out to be an FTP problem. Does Elkarte handle SFTP? I chmod-ed the files to 777 and the patch installed practically instantly.
Glad it worked out for you.
Not at the moment.
I looked around a while ago for libraries tu support SFTP, but never managed to decide what to do...
YAY! :D (For the install, a bit less for having to go 777...)
Congrats Team ElkArte :thumbsup:
I can't have fun with the page numbers blinking effect anymore since you updated here as well :'(
Jokes aside, congratz guys ;)
It seems like the announcement should have specifically called out that it hijacks and overwrites the avatar settings. I recall reading it here in other threads but had forgotten and didn't notice until I got PMs from forum members that things had changed. Seriously, if you're going to turn an option like gravatar back on in an update you really should make that completely explicit. A line saying simplified settings and permissions does not cover it.
Ouch, I'm sorry!
That's even why I wrote the notification box to warn admins there were changes... :(
If you installed the patch from the package manager of if you run the update.php in the patch, you should have seen a green box with a link to the admin > credits and support page, that explains it was not possible to properly migrate the avatar settings and to check the avatars page.
BTW, could you check if the text in the page is there? I wouldn't have messed up something... :-[
It should be the second block "Latest noteworthy updates".
The text is in the support and credits section, but I never thought to look there since the update passed it's checks using the package manager and said it installed ok. In the future can warnings like that go in the box announcing the new release please?
Yep, they will.
My fault as usual, it was supposed to show a box like the attached one, but because of a bug it didn't show... I'm really sorry for the trouble. I'll commit the fix immediately.
Cool. And no worries. Just passing on feedback for future releases.
