Title: ElkArte 1.0.2 - Release announcement
Post by: emanuele on December 15, 2014, 10:29:11 pm
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
 
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 (http://www.elkarte.net/community/index.php?topic=2311.0) on the forum for a complete list of updates.


Upgrade procedure:

For any question you may have, feel free to ask on the support forum (http://www.elkarte.net/community/index.php).

It is vital that all sites update to this release, thank you for your continued support!

When patch 1.0.2 will be merged with 'master'? I'm asking, because translation is not updated yet

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.

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.

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...)

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?
Title: Re: ElkArte 1.0.2 - Release announcement
Post by: emanuele on December 24, 2014, 01:34:12 am
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.
