Topic: PunBB 1.2.10

In the effort to release updated version as soon as possible after new issues are discovered, I hereby present PunBB 1.2.10. This release has been made to fix a couple of semi-serious security issues as well as a few minor bugs and annoyances. Fingers crossed, 1.2.10 should be the last release in the 1.2 tree. No, that does not mean I have a date or even an educated guess as to when 1.3 will be released. There are just too many variables involved for me to do that.

Thanks go out to Jonatan Wulcan, Stefan Esser, Smartys and Michael "PMD" Dorman.

Enjoy!

Edit: While trying to send out the newsletter for this release, the program I have been using to broadcast the announcement broke down completely. I will find a different tool tomorrow and give it another go. I apologize for this.

Re: PunBB 1.2.10

In punbb-1.2.10-changed_files.zip the update file is 12_to_129_update.php. Need a fix ?

Re: PunBB 1.2.10

Thanks a lot for the new version. I have one question though. I haven't kept up on updates, and my version is 1.27. I have many mods installed, and would have to upgrade using the patch, then the hdiff if needed. What I am wondering is, would I need to do the patch for 1.28, then 1.29, then 1.2.10, or if I did the newest 1.2.10 patch and probably hdiff would it cover everything? Thank you for everything you do.

Thanks so much for all your hard work.  Great stuff as usual!

If its cheaper to run Windows than it is to run Linux, how come Microsoft has all the money?

Yes, I feel that in "changed files only" the file 12_to_1210_update.php is missing... I guess you can grab the one in the full release, thou

Thanks. I've update the changed files packages.

Note to self: Write shell script to create the packages for a new release so I don't f*ck up again.

Just grab the diff or hdiff that takes you from 1.2.7 directly to 1.2.10. You can find them if you look around in the download archive. Then run the upgrade script 12_to_1210_update.php. That will bump up your version number in the database.

I'm sorry, but there's just no way of solving it. HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR was just too easy to spoof.

Re: PunBB 1.2.10

when 1.3 is realeased, will we havew to do a complete reinstall of everythin or will it be easy anough to update with hdiff?

Re: PunBB 1.2.10

I think you'll have to do a complete re-install, just like 1.1 - 1.2: there would just be too many changes

Re: PunBB 1.2.10

The mods will need rewritten/updated/extensionised anyway wink

Re: PunBB 1.2.10

I'm looking forward to that (not timewise/workload, but that new extension thingie smile) ... as I know some things I would like to change atm (in the attachment mod) that would just be truly annoying to change in the current state wink

Re: PunBB 1.2.10

I got fed up with all the crappy mass mailer applications out there, so I wrote my own in .NET:

It took about an hour. Testing out maybe 10 other applications that didn't work properly took a lot longer.
