Topic: PunBB 1.3 RC

Here is the PunBB 1.3 Release Candidate.

Download links:
(UPDATED: copyrights)

SVN link:

Major changes since 1.3 beta:

  • All variable and constant names changed to maximize extensions portablility

  • Changed $db to $forum_db in order to make forum integration easier

  • Removed the use of unbuffered queries. The performance gains are minimal and they can cause problems that are difficult to track down

  • Removed Fulltext search

  • Removed turn_off_maintenance_mode.php in favour of a line in include/essentials.php

  • Removed LOW_PRIORITY option from queries as it does not give any advantage

  • Moved output buffering to individual files

  • Added FORUM_DISABLE_CSRF_CONFIRM, a constant which when defined disables the CSRF token validation

  • Added new bbcode preparser to check for errors before posts are saved to the db

  • Added a "priority" attribute to the hook tag in extensions. Extensions can now specify their priority for each hook, meaning that they can suggest whether their code should go first, last, or somewhere in between

  • Improved/added more database helper functions

  • Added helper functions to deal with UTF-8 strings

  • Added code to silently strip out certain "bad" characters

  • Added notifications for new versions of installed extensions (via repositories)

PS: Bunch of extensions will be published very soon.

Re: PunBB 1.3 RC

Ooh, you forgot a couple!

  • Used some creative Javascript to get quickjump form working properly with SEF URLs.

  • Finished per-style templates so that all templates can be replaced on a per-style basis.

  • Changed the way form emails are sent (and the way the forum_mail function works). Rather than spoofing the sender's email address as the From address (which leads to all kinds of nasty issues), we instead provide a way to set the Reply-To header.

Re: PunBB 1.3 RC

Anatoly,

Is there a reason all the file dates are 6/17/2008?

Makes doing a comparison against the PunBB SVN a bit harder, not to mention updating an already running board, cause the dates are all different from the previous beta.

Thanks for the release.

Re: PunBB 1.3 RC

A tar archive should also be available. Zip and 7z are not standard on all systems where this will be run. The *nix world does still exist you know.

Re: PunBB 1.3 RC

gunzip should do fine, no?

Re: PunBB 1.3 RC

A tar.gz is 262 KB (269,209 bytes), pretty good compression.

Gunzip works fine, but the tar's keep more info, like permissions, etc.

Do you mean for extracting zip files, or just for compression for *nix? The standard method, when creating either gzip or bzip compressed files, is to tar them first. smile But yes, either of those would be fine.

Hmm. I can't get the problem? What file dates are you expecting to see?

Regarding SVN line by line comparison to PunBB 1.3 beta, it must be evil ))
We are migrating to new repository now. Old one will be possibly kept for historical reasons )

Ok, that's why the dates changed, a new repository checkin would do that.

Re: PunBB 1.3 RC

Hello Anatoly,

Simple: PunBB 1.3 RC is (for the most part, to say the least) FluxBB beta 2.5.

Re: PunBB 1.3 RC

great!

Re: PunBB 1.3 RC

Yeah: Great! So PunBB basically copied FluxBB's code "for compatibility reasons"?
Congrats! Great work!

FluxBB - v1.4.8

Re: PunBB 1.3 RC

Your team developed it or you steal it from FluxBB?

That's right.
There will be more differences from now on.

FluxBB team developed their forum or stole it from PunBB?
Both of these questions are incorrect because of GPL.
Why should we do the same if we see that other devs do it right?
GPL allows all of us to use the results of both teams.
Be correct please.

Thanks.

There is a chance, we will release RC2, applying Paul's new markup to have Pun/Flux CSS/templates compatible.

Sorry. Unactive due to personal life.

Re: PunBB 1.3 RC

A least you are honest and admit your team doesn't develope enything but it will copy FluxBB and be dependant on developement of FluxBB.

I hope you will give credits to them in the bottom? Somethink like Powerd by PunBB - Developed by FluxBB...

Re: PunBB 1.3 RC

ledo, be a little kind, he already said that its GPL. go search google what does it means. the devs forked. so both sites are free. well for me. the one which develops more and bitter i will go to that side. currently fluxbb.org is far above punbb. but i still dont know how capable are antology and his new team.
