vBulletin 5.3.1 Alpha 4 is now available.

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

Warning: Not recommended for Production Servers

vBulletin 5.3.1 is a maintenance release with a range of bug fixes and a couple of new features.

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 update 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.

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 - 5.3.0
Security Patch - 5.2.6
Security Patch - 5.2.5
No Patch Release - 5.2.4 or earlier.

vBulletin 5.3.0 Connect is now available.

vBulletin 5.3.0 is now available. Customers with valid licenses are encouraged to use this version of the software.

Two-Factor Authentication
We are proud to introduce Two-Factor Authentication for control panel sessions. Two-factor Authentication provides additional security using your smartphone. You would enable this feature in your configuration files. Then each user can generate their own secret token from their user settings panel. Once enabled, the user will retrieve their login token from the app they choose to use. We recommend using Google Authenticator on most platforms. Once the user has created a security key it will be required on appropriate logins. Currently, this functionality covers the AdminCP, ModCP, Inline Moderation, and Site Builder. These are locations controlled by the cpsession system of the software.


Read more about Two-Factor Authentication in this article (https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/arti...authentication).

Calendar
Following the implementation of events, we have added a Calendar Page, and corresponding modules, to the system. This allows you to present your upcoming events in a traditional calendar format. This should allow your users to discover events easily. The calendar can be accessed from any Upcoming Events module. It will inherit any search parameters of that module. It can also be accessed by adding /calendar to your site address.

New modules
Calendar - This is the calendar module used for the new page. You can also place this module on any page where you might want to display this information.


Tab Container - This new module can contain other modules. This will allow you to create a custom tabbed page on your site. We use it on the Calendar page as an example. There the tab container module holds two modules: the calendar module, and the upcoming events module.



System Requirements
Minimum PHP Version: 5.6.0
Minimum MySQL Version: 5.1.5

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 - 5.3.0
Security Patch - 5.2.6
Security Patch - 5.2.5
No Patch Release - 5.2.4 or earlier.
