Topic: PunBB 1.2.15

It's time for a new security and bug fix update to PunBB 1.2. This time around, we've dealt with quite a few bugs, annoyances and security issues. There are no extremely urgent fixes in 1.2.15, but as usual, we recommend that everyone update. You'll notice that most of PunBB's scripts are affected by the update, so if you've made lots of modifications to your install, I recommend using the patch to update your source. If not, just grab the changed files archive and unpack it over your current install. Please note that the template files have been updated to include the xmlns attribute for the html tag, so be careful if you've made any changes to your .tpl files. All related files can be found on the downloads page.

Thanks to DarkFig and Gary13579 for giving us time to fix a few security problems and thanks to anyone else who has reported any issues.

Edit: At the moment, neither the changelog nor the patch/hdiff files are done. I'll sort that out when I get back from work.
Edit2: The changelog and the patches/hdiffs are now up.

Actually, no. I added that just a few seconds after I initially posted the topic smile

Re: PunBB 1.2.15

I did the upgrade manually with the hdiff ... takes a few minutes, but it works now wink  (and I still follow my personal 'upgrade within 24h since release' rule) wink

Re: PunBB 1.2.15

There, changelog up as well.

Try running the patch. You'll be surprised how well it goes. If you're hesitant, at least try running a "dry-run". Check the man page for more details.

Re: PunBB 1.2.15

just noticed a little spelling error, its in 1.2.14 aswell...

in header.php, you have
// START SUBST - <pun_page>

then under that it says

// END SUBST - <pun_title>

instead of

// END SUBST - <pun_page>

Re: PunBB 1.2.15

I have question about index in table online. Now phpmyadmin says:

UNIQUE and INDEX keys should not both be set for column `user_id`

Is it correct ?

Yeah, we know about it, but we decided not to fix it (it's fixed in 1.3). We want to keep the updates for 1.2 as small as possible.

Hmm. Let me look into this. If anything, we have a redundant index, but it's not something to worry about.

Due to the overwhelming love for the PunBB 1.2.x series, the release of 1.3 has been postponed wink

That's a warning as far as I know, and as far as my research goes it's untrue due to the fact that online is a heap table (it would be redundant if it were a MyISAM table)

Re: PunBB 1.2.15

Pardon the ignoprant question, but my knowledge of php is very basic. (Only enough to install mods !)

When I update to 1.2.15 using the changefiles, of course this will wipe out most, if not all of my installed mods, right ?
What is the best way to update in order to minimise the work I hve to do to repair all of the mods ?
