Title: ElkArte 1.0.6 - Release announcement
Post by: emanuele on December 21, 2015, 10:36:22 pm
Today, we are pleased to release ElkArte 1.0.6. This release fixes some bugs and issues that were found or reported since the release of 1.0.5. 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 1.0.5 version.

Some notable updates in 1.0.6 include:

* added the possibility not to have a default value for "multi-option" custom fields (select boxes and radio buttons),
* removed poster div for ignored users,
* fixed removing of PM labels,
* fixed a couple of issues with the moderation "hamburger" (for mobile devices)
* few other fixes

This release follows our semantic version (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=3155.0) on the forum for a complete list of updates.


Patching procedure:

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

Of course you are encouraged to update to this release since it contains a lot of fixes and improvements, thank you for your continued support!

I saw the update to 1.0.6 being pushed to Github. It took about an hour before my forums went, "Oh... look, there's an update! Hooray!" and the only reason I say this is because I was actively dicking about with a forum, trying to port things over to it and such.

Edit:

I'm just amused by this, that's all... nothing more. This post was not intended as a jab at the Elkarte team. ;)

Sorry, don't want to offend, but what's your point?  :-\

At first you don't have to wait for this message in admin central to update your forum. You can download the update package and install it via the package manager of ElkArte.

Second: Do you really think an hour makes a difference? Most admins have jobs in real life and have to wait for their free time to work on their forums. They need time. ElkArte gives.  ;)

I probably should've added a comment about it being a silly one, not one of annoyance. >_>

Oh. It's nearly 2a... that'd be why I forgot to add such a thing to my post. It was meant to elicit a chuckle.

Update successfull. But I became this message in package manager:

Quote
Dieses Paket ist schon installiert, es wurde keine Aktualisierung gefunden.

 Du solltest die alte Version deinstallieren, um Probleme zu vermeiden, oder den Autor nach einer Aktualisierung fragen.

Bitte mache regelmäßig Sicherungen deiner Dateien und der Datenbank, bevor du neue Modifikationen installierst - Besonders bei Beta-Versionen.

...which means: "This package is already installed".

...which means: "This package is already installed".
S*it!
It's the third time I do the exact same mistake of copying the file and not update the id!
Dammit!
I have to really automate that piece of the release... :-\

I'm now going to work, so I guess I'll try to fix it this evening, unless @Spuds can just replace the package fixing the package id.

I'm gonna laugh, much like Jorin did. Yes, you really do need to automate that particular issue. :P

Just checking in now ... does this still need to be done?

Looks like it was still needed so I updated the patch file id in the 106 release

Thanks Spuds!
Sorry, I had a thing I had to attend (that I completely forgot), so I wasn't able to update the package.

CrimeS, it's not that a micro changes that much about themes! ;)
Just a couple of CSS tweaks.

Ah, if it's CSS then it's time saved! I've separated these files, so the elk's CSS files are untouched.

And anyway, as usual in the release notes (http://www.elkarte.net/community/index.php?topic=3155.0) the commits are detailed and the theme-related are tagged as such. ;D
Actually, in this case, this one (https://github.com/elkarte/Elkarte/commit/4ef8a84) is tagged as "bugix", but is theme-related. :P

Upgraded to 1.0.6 and then a webpage came up saying "Congratulations!  You have just fried your database.  Have a good day"   Hmmm..... 8)

Just kidding....upgrade went as smooth as a vanilla milkshake.....  oops,  didn't mean to say vanilla.    ;)

In all seriousness, good job Elkarte team.  Two thumbs up.
