Topic: PunBB 1.2.12

Just a quick note to announce 1.2.12. This release fixes two XSS vulnerabilities and one minor bug. Due to the security updates, I recommend that everyone update. As usual, you'll find the download on the downloads page.

Thanks to the people who alerted me via e-mail about the vulnerabilities. I'm sorry for the somewhat slow response this time.

Edit: I won't be able to announce this via the newsletter today because it turns out my ISP isn't that fond of me sending out mass e-mail. I'll write a script and run it on the server, but it'll have to wait until tomorrow.

Re: PunBB 1.2.12

1.3 needed not 1.2.12 hmm

Re: PunBB 1.2.12

Yes, I understand a lot of you are looking forward to 1.3. The only thing I can say about that right now is that it is in active development. Don't take my word for it, have a look for yourself:

Re: PunBB 1.2.12

Yes I see, but how long will take You to release stable 1.3? Months, weeks, days tongue?

Re: PunBB 1.2.12

I'm guessing that 1.3 will require a few months of open beta testing before going stable because of the extension system and all the hooks that need to be sorted out.

Edit: Update the announcement tongue

Re: PunBB 1.2.12

Coxis: Because you didn't run the updating script, you can't expect to edit the files and have the value in the DB magically change tongue
You can also use the version changing plugin wink

Re: PunBB 1.2.12

ooo ok
i just change the files manually by hdiff file
do i need to make some more ?

i mean i only change the files by editing them and i can have that old version number show
i just want to be secure with the new updates, that is all i think

No, you don't tongue
My point is that the version number is stored in the database and thus you can't expect to update the version number by just updating the files in the hdiff tongue
You can either grab a copy of the 12_to_1212_update.php script or just use the version changer plugin to manually change it

To do it by hand you must modify the value of o_cur_version in the database to 1.2.12, then you need to delete the cache_config.php file located in the cache folder.

Wrong, because the data is still in the database as 1.2.11: you also have to update the database tongue

Re: PunBB 1.2.12

You should make an RSS feed for update notifications.

[edit]

also, could you provide some manual patching instructions? I don't want to undo all my hacks.


[more editing]

nevermind, found manual directions on download page
