Topic: PunBB 1.2.8

It's that time again. I'm pleased to announce the release of PunBB 1.2.8, a small bug and vulnerability fix. As usual, the changelog is your friend.

Once again, the heroes of the day are PHP security guru Stefan Esser of the Hardened-PHP Project and the ever present bug hunter Smartys. Thank you both for reporting the vulnerabilities and for being nice guys in general smile

Edit: I'm really sorry about this, but I must have been really tired when I slapped together this release last night. A bad fix that prevented anyone from submitting the essentials profile page when there is only one language pack installed was introduced. I've just fixed it and I recommend that everyone either re-download 1.2.8 and update their profile.php or apply the fix manually.

AHHHHHHHHHH!! Upgrade Pun or evacuate Houston!!!!

OK, so the upgrade took 10 minutes and won't affect our evacuation one bit. Nice work Rickard.

ps...yes, I really am in Houston and yes, we really are about to leave. Have a read for regular updates on how we're doing. smile

Re: PunBB 1.2.8

Upgrade via patch went fine smile

Re: PunBB 1.2.8

Upgrade went fine, even with some mods installed. Yay!

Looking for a certain modification for your forum? Please take a look here before posting.

Re: PunBB 1.2.8

Upgrade went fine for me. Thanks!

Re: PunBB 1.2.8

Slight prob with editing profiles... The page where you put the admin notes, when you click submit, it goes to a page saying "Bad request. The link you followed is incorrect or outdated."... Any other page of the profile (personal, messaging, personality, etc) works, but not Essentials.

I can reproduce the error on my updated forum also.

Can confirm the same problem here as well.

Just read your blog on evacuation (and cats, of course) and it all seems too familiar. I was in the states when Katrina hit, and I wish you luck and good patience out on those highways...

Back in Sweden, the weather is fine and so are the women. wink

Enjoy!

Oh, and thanks for the quick update Rickard!

Re: PunBB 1.2.8

I'm such a moron! Give me 15 minutes and I'll have it fixed.

Done. See the first post in this topic.

Re: PunBB 1.2.8

The email notification worked well, thanks Rickard.

I was wondering - would it be a good idea to make the changelog and/or hdiff files available only to registered members? Because they do seem to "point the way" for hackers. Now, I suppose a dedicated hacker could always do a file comparison themselves, but at least we aren't making it easy for them.

Re: PunBB 1.2.8

I doubt it would make a difference. Also, PunBB is open source and I'd like to keep it as "open" as possible.

Re: PunBB 1.2.8

Hello,

Just did an upgrade with no problem, thanks.

My question is : did you send a "newsletter" email ? (I didn't get it but maybe it's a problem on my side ?)

Thanks,

That's odd. I did send it out to all users on the list.
