Geeklog v2.2.1 is now available for download and is the recommended version for all production sites.

This version of Geeklog now fully supports PHP v7.3. The minimum PHP requirements have changed, they have gone from v5.3.3 to v5.6.4. In part for security reasons, we decided to update the minimum requirements of PHP to v5.6 since this is the only version of PHP v5 that has received any security updates in the last year. The system requirements for installing Geeklog v2.2.1 is now:

  • PHP 5.6.4 or higher

  • Postgresql 9.1.7 or later

There was 141 closed issues for this version of Geeklog which resulted in 714 code commits (with over 4,000 changed files). The major new features, improvements and fixes in this version include:

  • [Feature] Geeklog now uses PHP built in support for sessions.
  • [Feature] Structured Data directly integrated into Geeklog along with plugin support. Includes initial support for Breadcrumbs, Articles, and Static Pages.
