vBulletin 5.1.8 Connect Alpha 6 Released

We're happy to announce the release of vBulletin 5.1.8 Alpha 6. All together over 100 issues have been resolved in vBulletin 5.1.8. While most of these issues are bug fixes, there are a few enhancements to the software.

This version is now available to all customers with a valid vBulletin 5 Download license.

[h2]Interface Updates[/h2]
Several updates to the interface have been applied to the software. These include:
  • Indicator in which topics user has posted [VBV-4849]: Topics will now show a green check mark on the status indicator for users that have posted in the topic.
  • Front End Interface for HTML State [VBV-7616]: For those users with permission to post HTML directly, they can now choose whether that permission is applied on each post that they make. This should give greater control over creating content on your sites.
  • Change Style & Templates navigation block to Styles & Themes [VBV-14530]: To correspond with changes in the functionality of the Style and Templates area for Cloud customers, the terminology has been updated. This is only a phrasing change and does not affect any functionality on Cloud or Standard licenses.
  • Send notification to end user on content quote [VBV-3889]: Users should now get a notification when their posts are quoted within a topic.
  • Various fixes have been applied to Attachments and viewing attachments so that permissions are properly applied.
  • Debug options not working in admincp [VBV-14601]: Debugging should now work properly in the AdminCP
[h2]MariaDB Support[/h2]
While MariaDB has been a drop in replacement for MySQL for many years, vBulletin 5 has never actually supported this database engine. Recently the versioning on MariaDB has diverged from MySQL. This can cause problems down the road. Starting with 5.1.8, the installation tools will specifically check for MariaDB versions. Minimum version supported is 5.1.5. To use MariaDB with your vBulletin installation, all you need to do is update your /core/includes/config.php file to point to a MariaDB database server.

[h2]Legacy API - Mobile Apps[/h2]
To improve functionality with the mobile apps, a number of fixes have been applied to the legacy API in vBulletin 5. This will allow these functions to behave more appropriately and return improved JSON data so the Mobile Apps can parse the data better.

[h2]Responsive[/h2]
We are continuing ongoing work to update responsive display on mobile devices.
  • Updates have been made where text is supposed to wrap or truncate in order to provide a better display in limited space.
  • Avatars are now used instead of topic status icons in thread views.
  • Changes to the Content Slider have been made for a better display on responsive devices.
  • The time has been added to Last Post Information.
More information can be found here

Security Patch Released for vBulletin 5.1.4 - 5.1.6

A security issue has been discovered by the vBulletin team. This issue affects photo descriptions and could allow Cross Site Scripting. We have released security patches for the versions vBulletin 5.1.4 through 5.1.6 to close this vulnerability. It is recommended that all users apply the patch as soon as possible. If you're using a version of vBulletin 5 older than 5.1.4, it is recommended that you upgrade to the latest version as soon as possible.

In addition to the fixes in this patch, an upgrade step is being added to vBulletin 5.1.7 that will verify all previous images and make sure their descriptions are secure.

You can download the patch for your version here: http://members.vbulletin.com/patches.php

To install the patch:
1) Download the appropriate files for your version of vBulletin 5
2) Upload all files found within the zip file. Make sure to overwrite the existing files on your server.
3) Run install/upgrade.php in your browser.
4) Delete the /core/install folder.

If you're using a version prior to 5.1.4, then you should upgrade to that version following standard upgrade procedures. After upgrading, run the fix script which will be found in your /do_not_upgrade folder. Upload this to /core/install and run from your web browser.

This fix has already been applied to vBulletin Connect 5.1.7 and vBulletin Cloud.

vBulletin 5.1.7 Connect is now available.

We're happy to announce the release of vBulletin 5.1.7. All together over 100 issues have been resolved in vBulletin 5.1.7. While most of these issues are bug fixes, there are a few enhancements to the software.

[h2]Notifications[/h2]
The handling of how notifications are marked read has changed. When visiting the item that triggered the notification, it will be marked as read automatically. This will remove it from your list of new notifications. If you need to view a dismissed notification, you can do so by using the new filtering functions on the notifications page. In addition, on the notifications page, you can mark them as read or dismissed. Old dismissed notifications will be automatically deleted every 30 days. [jira]VBV-2545[/jira]

An option has been added to disable sending notifications via the User Mention functionality (which was added in 5.1.5). User Mentions will still link to the user's profile if this is enabled. [jira]VBV-14200[/jira] [ATTACH=CONFIG]n4321097[/ATTACH]




[h2]Minimum Version Checks[/h2]
There was an issue with the minimum version checks for PHP and MySQL in the install and upgrade scripts. This has been changed and the minimum version for both will now be upheld.
See JIRA: [jira]VBV-13757[/jira]

PHP Minimum Version: PHP 5.4.0
MySQL Minimum Version: MySQL Community 5.1.5

[h2]Sphinx Search[/h2]
Minimum Version: 2.1.2 Release
Due to changes between the beta version and release version of 2.1.2, we can no longer support the beta version. The minimum version has been increased to reflect this. Without upgrading Sphinx, you will experience errors when searching is attempted. See JIRA: [jira]VBV-14501[/jira]

Rebuild Index
Due to filter changes for prefixes, you must rebuild your Sphinx index with vBulletin 5.1.7. See JIRA: [jira]VBV-14443[/jira]

In order for this fix to take effect you will need update the sphinx schema for the index. You can do this by.
  • Follow the instructions to create the vbulletin sphinx configuration file found in the sphinx installation instructions for your OS. (Use the new vbulletin_sphinx.php file provided with this version of vBulletin).
  • Restart sphinx.
  • Copy searchindex.php to your core vbulletin directory.
  • Run "php searchindex.php". You will need to run this as a user with sufficient privileges to run sphinx index commands. Select the correct vbulletin core directory (you can probably use the default) and choose to empty the search index (otherwise the schema will not be recreated from the config)
  • Remove the searchindex.php file.
The board will continue to function while the index operation is running, but search will return no results or incomplete results until it finishes.

[h2]Responsive[/h2]
Hide Modules
Options have been added to hide modules in Responsive Mode based on the display screen. Currently there are three sizes which relate to portrait sizes of various devices. Small (< 480 pixels), Medium (< 768 pixels) and Desktop. [jira]VBV-2126[/jira]

Display Issues
Many display and layout issues have been fixed in Responsive. These range from overlapping text to long URLs escaping the page boundaries. You can see a list of these issues using this filter
