vBulletin 5.3.2 Alpha 4 is now available for download.

vBulletin 5.3.2 Alpha 4 is now available to all licensed customers. This version should be used for evaluation purposes only. This software should not be used on live sites.

Inline Log In
Imagine that you've logged in but forgot to check the Remember Me button. You find an interesting topic and type a long reply. When you're finished, you submit the post and get an error that says you don't have permission to perform that action. What happened is your session timed out while typing. To resolve this, we have added Inline Log In. Now instead of receiving a confusing message, you will receive a dialog box asking for your password in order to properly process the new post.

Push Notification Framework
We have added the framework for push notifications to vBulletin 5. This framework will currently support Private Message notifications being pushed to the Mobile Suite. As demand warrants, we will add different types of content notifications. In order to use Push Notifications, you will need to register your site with Google's Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) system. Site Administrators can register their sites here:
https://console.firebase.google.com/u/0/

Registering your site will provide a Server Key and a Sender ID. You need to enter these into vBulletin under Settings -> Options -> vBulletin Mobile and API Options.

User Tokens
Once the Mobile Suite is updated to support Push Notifications, your users will need to update the App and allow it to receive notifications via the system settings. This will create a token to allow them to receive push notifications. The token will remain valid as long as they remain logged into the App. If the user is inactive for more than 7 days, the system will stop sending the user push notifications.

More information on Push Notifications will be coming soon.

Is your site using a Secure Socket Layer (SSL)
Is your site running on SSL, also referred to as HTTPS? The Secure Socket Layer provides a security standard that creates an encrypted link between your site and the user's browser making sure everything transmitted remains private and is not changed midstream. This is the preferred method of accessing a website in 2017 and currently provides a small boost to search engine rankings. vBulletin 5 Connect has full support for SSL. If you are not using SSL at this time check out our article on converting your site to use HTTPS:
https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/arti...forum-to-https

All vBulletin Cloud sites are configured to use SSL as a free add-on feature.

System Requirements
Minimum PHP Version: 5.6.0
Minimum MySQL Version: 5.5.0

Recommended PHP Version: 7.1 or higher
Recommended MySQL Version: 5.7.0 or higher
Recommended MariaDB Version: 10+

Current Version Support Schedule:Active Version - 5.3.1

vBulletin 5.3.1 Connect is now available.

vBulletin 5.3.1 is now available. Customers with valid licenses are encouraged to test the software on their staging servers.

Support for Large Forums
In the past, there have been some performance issues with sites that have a very large number of Forum Channels (200+) and a large number of custom usergroups. In vBulletin 5.3.1, we have refactored how permissions are stored in the datastore and loaded into memory when people visit your site. This has allowed us to increase performance by an order of magnitude while lowering the required amount of memory to process each page. For more information see VBV-14871

Administrator and Moderator Security
We take the security of your site very seriously. Over the years we have introduced a number of technologies to keep your site secure from exploits. Recently in 5.3.0, we introduced Two-Factor Authorization for Administrators and Moderators. In 5.3.1, we are introducing the ability to restrict the ability of Administrators and Moderators by IP Address as well. By entering a series of IP addresses in your configuration file, you can restrict these areas to the individuals with those addresses.

To configure this for your site, edit your /core/includes/config.php and alter these values:



Note: Code Cannot Be Viewed on the Portal



If you're using an older version of the config.php file, you can copy these from your /core/includes/config.php.new file or copy the code above. If you do not know what your IP Address is, you can see it by typing "What is my IP?" into Google.

Route by Node
An option has been added to create URLs on your site by Node ID instead of relying on title text. This is primarily in place to allow foreign language sites to access URLS that are not currently accessible due to encoding issues. You can find this option in the AdminCP under Settings -> Options -> Site Name / URL / Contact Details. Set the Route Channels and Conversations by Node ID to Yes.


MAPI Update
We have updated the vBulletin 5 Mobile API to handle Articles and Events. Once this is supported in the Mobile Apps, your users will have access to this content.

MySQL Version Update
Please note that MySQL 5.1.15 is an old version of the software and no longer under direct support. In vBulletin 5.3.2, we will be increasing the required version of MySQL and MariaDB to 5.5.X. This will provide customers with an additional performance boost and most servers have most likely updated. There are no immediate database changes planned to support this change. We will provide further information as it becomes available.

Cloud Upgrades
Upgrades for vBulletin Cloud sites will be scheduled as soon as possible. Site owners will be notified by email before their site is upgraded.

System Requirements
Minimum PHP Version: 5.6.0
Minimum MySQL Version: 5.1.15

Recommended PHP Version: 7.1 or higher
Recommended MySQL Version: 5.7.0 or higher
Recommended MariaDB Version: 10+

Current Version Support Schedule:Active Version - 5.3.1
Security Patch - 5.3.0
Security Patch - 5.2.6
No Patch Release - 5.2.5 or earlier.
