Welcome to Geeklog Tuesday, June 18 2013 @ 01:08 AM EDT
Geeklog 1.5.1 is mostly a bugfix update for Geeklog 1.5.0. The first release candidate is now available for download.
As you can see from the list of changes, we've also thrown in a few minor improvements. Overall, however, the focus for this release is on bugfixes before we're moving on to integrate the new features developed during this year's Summer of Code.
The Google Summer of Code for 2008 has officially ended now and we're happy to report that five of our six students have successfully completed their projects.
Congratulations to Aman, Bill, Jared, Matt, and Sami. Good work, guys!
Of course, this being software development, not everything worked out quite as planned and some plans had to be revised along the way. Still, we got some great results and so future Geeklog versions will, among other things, get a comment moderation queue, plugin installation through uploads, and a revamped search results page. And we'll try to get these new features integrated a little faster this time around ;-)
A user by the name of t0pP8uZz has demonstrated that the file upload capabilities of FCKeditor, as shipped with Geeklog, can be used to directly upload various sorts of files to a website running Geeklog. The file types are still restricted by FCKeditor's whitelist of allowed types, so it's not possible to upload PHP scripts or the like. Still, this is not something that should be possible as it has the potential for malicious use.
The issue affects Geeklog 1.4.1 and 1.5.0 and possibly other versions when FCKeditor was updated manually.
We will be addressing this problem in the upcoming 1.5.1 release of Geeklog. In the meantime, here's a list of things you can do now:
