Just when you thought 2.2.7 was the last one before 3.0... ;)

It's still RC, so I'm going to wait until it becomes gold before I upgrade.

Since I'm sick with gastro, and am sitting at home, I thought I might as well upgrade because I have time.

A tip for those upgrading:

Read John's description of changes to each file. Some of the changes are not necessary. Also, some of the changes listed are already in the vB.com vb2 Bugs forum so you can do that manually. He also included my fix to auto-unsubscribe banned members in 2.2.8 (albeit a mildly different version) :).

This is a very minor upgrade from 2.2.7, and shouldn't take too long.

hehehe.. i almost finishied my superhacked forum..
geeeeeeeeeeeee..

/me is hitting his head against the wall...
actually araxis merge will see the diff in exacly 2mins.. :)

Most of us who follow the vB.com vB2 bug forums would have some of the upgrade changes installed already.

Read John's description of the changes in each file, so you know where to look with Araxis Merge. It's usually only 1 or 2 lines of difference in each file - quite easy to do. I am doing that right now...

i'm just gonna do a an araxis merge between the default 227 and 228, so i see exacly where is the diff. :)
thanks for letting me know Erwin... the funny part is i always findout from you that there is a new version.. hehe.
however, look at the pic.. you cant miss it... the prob is that i almost never go to this page while working on my localhost.

instead of the admin cp, i use a little script that updates the templates instantly, isntead of going like crazy to all the templates one by one. so all i have to do is edit the big template.style and bingo.. is updated.

when i will have my forums online, i'm sure it will bealot easier for me to see the updates...

TECK
25 Sep 2002, 04:42
hmm i thought they would be 4-5changes.. there are 25changes in all files...

Erwin
25 Sep 2002, 05:56
Yeah, it took me longer than I thought to upgrade. Took me in total over 2 hours. There are some changes to the way cookies are handled - some of the previous fixes are no longer present.

Everything is working well. :) That's the main thing.

Erwin
25 Sep 2002, 05:56
What's happened to the edit button?

Erwin
25 Sep 2002, 05:57
And the sigs???

ManagerJosh
25 Sep 2002, 06:18
Possibly to the 17 already known problems in vB 2.2.8 forum :rolleyes:

I had to halt my site upgrades because of this...Argh!



Just when you thought it was safe to upgrade...
*grumbles*

Erwin
25 Sep 2002, 06:29
I was actually referring to the missing sig and edit button here at vB.org - they're back now. Firefly must have been doing some site maintenance, or installing a new hack.

Actually, 2.2.8 is working fine on my site. The best place to look for confirmed bugs is here:

http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=19

Staff at vB will move threads in the Troubleshooting forum to the Bug forum if they confirm the bug.

have just updated all testboards and running boards to 227, so i'll wait till vb228 is no longer just an RC.

But its nice from the devs to make such upgrades, so hackkers will never be bored *g*

TECK
25 Sep 2002, 13:10
hehe, join the club stefan....
once we are almost done hacking a version... POP another one show up...

Xenon
25 Sep 2002, 14:40
hehe floren i think they just wait until the majority has imported all hacks to a version and then they'll release the next one ;)

that's why they give good support, they want to know how much already upgraded ^^

After reading this thread I have another question about VB. When you upgrade do the hacks for the version that you had before still work? And can you install hacks that were made for earlier versions?

So who noticed my bad grammar in that announcement with all the changes

Erwin

It's gone gold just now.

Changes since the RC release (copied from the 2.2.8 announcement):

Main Directory:

newreply.php; stop users replying to moved thread redirects

showthread.php; stop users replying to moved thread redirects

memberslist.php; sort bug with advanced search lower post limit

Admin Directory:

adminfunctions.php; better handling of characters which will corrupt the settings

functions.php; move security fix from global.php to here

global.php; remove security fix

user.php; checks on post limits when doing a search

Mod Directory:

global.php; remove security fix



Time to upgrade from RC to gold... :sigh:

Does anyone have a comprehensive list of changes from vB 2.2.6 to 2.2.8?

Satan

Xenon
27 Sep 2002, 19:55
hmm, i don't have a list, but you can always use arexis merge or beyon compare to compare original vb226 with vb228

Chris M
27 Sep 2002, 20:19
Where would you find those?:)

There are just too many changes to document. 2.2.6 to 2.2.8 has some major bug and security fixes.

@Erwin - Yeh...

I downloaded Beyond Compare yesterday:)

Ive worked through most of the changes in the root folder, but I am sure there are some mistakes I have made...:(

Unfortunately, I cannot remember downloading vB 2.2.7 from the Members Area, so I couldnt do 2.2.6 to 2.2.7, then 2.2.7 to 2.2.8!:cry:

[/B]

there's a thread of how to upgrade a hacked board with beyond compare/araxis merge in hacking hints and tips forum by floren ;)

Also why upgrade from 226 to 227 and then 228?
just upgrade from 226 to 228

TECK
28 Sep 2002, 10:45
hmm there are quite few changes from v228rc and 228 final.
erwin, you were smart to wait. :)

i will do it me to from now on...

TECK
28 Sep 2002, 10:47
satan, your first name is dominic or chris? i dont remember anymore...
i recommend you to use araxis merge. is sort of expensive but worth every penny for a hacker.

i've decided so since 225 RC - non rc ;)
it really saves time if you have hacked boards ;)

Erwin
28 Sep 2002, 14:07
Actually, I didn't wait, but upgrading from 2.2.8 RC to 2.2.8 only took me 5 minutes, because John in the 2.2.8 vB.com announcement specified exactly what changes were needed.

29 Sep 2002, 07:39
I want to purchase it, but I don't know if I should wait till v3.0 comes out, or do it as soon as I get a domain. And can you upgrade from 2.2.8 to 3.0 free when it comes?

Erwin
29 Sep 2002, 09:23
Yes. When you purchase a license you get free upgrades and support for 1 year.

Chris M
29 Sep 2002, 12:56
@TECK - Chris;)

Thanks for the recommendation, but I already completed it with Beyond Compare...Perhaps I will use Araxis Merge for vB 2.2.9?:D

@Xenon - Thanks:) I thought about 2.2.6 to 2.2.7, because there wouldnt be a huge set of changes between them both, then 2.2.7 and 2.2.8, because there wouldnt be a huge set of changes between them either...

But I went from 2.2.6 to 2.2.8 anyway:):p

Lol...

I wonder if that "2.9.9." statement will come back to haunt me when vB DO release vBulletin version 2.9.9. lol:p

29 Sep 2002, 20:22
It'll probably just by 2.2.10 .. 2.2.20 as 2.3.0 or anything sounds like a major release when it'll just be a maintence release.

Chris M
29 Sep 2002, 20:50
Indeed...

I cant wait for this add-on product vB are releasing!!!:)
