Topic: PunBB 1.2.14

I guess the old English idiom "when it rains, it pours" applies today :) Nevertheless, I am pleased to announce the release of PunBB 1.2.14. This release addresses a few security problems, fixes a bug or two, adds a search performance tweak and adds stylesheet fixes to fully support the up-and-coming Internet Explorer 7 release. You can find all files related to the update on the downloads page.

Thanks a lot to Nms (nms@wargan.org). Never before have I received such a detailed vulnerability report :) As usual, thanks to Smartys for some of the reports. Finally, thanks to Yann for reporting the search performance tweak.

As some of you might have noticed, I didn't update the copyright notice to include the year 2006 because that would affect all scripts (the GPL preamble) and make the diff's huge. It'll be in 1.3.

Changes made on my forum smile

Re: PunBB 1.2.14

I made the changes manually using the hdiff
When I go into the admin section, under 'Statistics' it shows:

    PunBB version
    PunBB 1.2.13 - Check for upgrade
    © Copyright 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 Rickard Andersson

The version still shows as: 1.2.13 - even though I changed it as in the hdiff
what am I doing wrong?
I tried surfing to www.foo.com/forum/install.php
but it says forum is already installed...

Re: PunBB 1.2.14

You need to change it in your database. It's in the config table.

Re: PunBB 1.2.14

Don't forget to clear the cache folder aswell so the config updates.

When searching and showing results as topics (the default), PunBB used to join in the posts table in the query that fetches the topics to display. This join turned out to be useless so we removed it.

Re: PunBB 1.2.14

OK, it's clear now.
And one more question about link to hdiff in the news - there isn't there direct link in the news - doesn't it strange?

Re: PunBB 1.2.14

Updated with hdiff output, cleaned the cache and updated the version number in the conf table. It works.
Thanks for your support, Rickard !
