Geeklog 1.3.7 released

  • Contributed by:
  • Views:

The finalized version of Geeklog 1.3.7 is available for download now.

The only changes since the release of 1.3.7rc1 were some more bug fixes and the addition of some new (Spanish, Hellenic/Greek) and updated (Japanese, Italian, Polish) translations.

As has been said before, Geeklog 1.3.7 is a maintenance release, focussing on bug fixes and minor improvements. New features include the ability to receive notification email when stories, links, or events have been submitted, a separate listing of only the new stories, resizing of user photos and more. Please refer to the short and complete list of changes for details.

bye, Dirk

Update: The original 1.3.7 tarball was missing three empty folders (see this story). It has now been replaced with a tarball named geeklog-1.3.7-1.tar.gz which includes these three folders. This is the only difference between the two tarballs. Just follow the above link to download the correct file.

Is there a db upgrade to be concerned with (from 1.3.6)? Or do we just move the files in and edit the various config files?

The installation instructions include a section on upgrading ...

Yeah, I saw that. But I was confused when I saw that the Upgrade directions specifically mentioned the following:

\"Please note that there were no database changes between versions 1.3.5, 1.3.5sr1, and 1.3.5sr2, so when upgrading from any of those versions, simply select \"1.3.5\" as your current version.\"

But, it did not mention 1.3.6 or 1.3.7. Nor did the sql directory contain a file like \"mysql_1.3.6_to_1.3.7.php\". I thought it would be more efficient to ask, rather than start the process and hose my system.

1.3.7 doesn\'t really upgrade the database (it doesn\'t add any fields or tables), it just fixes three problems, two of which exist only on some installs. So there was no need for a 1.3.7 sql file this time - these fixes are done by the install script.

In general, you should always run the install script with the upgrade option. The only exceptions were those that you cited: 1.3.5sr1 and 1.3.5sr2 used the exact same database as 1.3.5.

I just upgraded on my SME 5.5. Everything looks fine but I did have a few \"interesting\" experiences.

I copied everything in /public_html from 1.3.7 to the old /html folder and that was a slight mistake. If you are using Staticpages 1.2 (with PHP code available) skip /admin/plugins/staticpages and /staticpages. I had some problems with the new Staticpages.

Also, make sure you have copied all of your plugins from /root/to/geeklog/plugins to the new installation if you have it installed in a new directory. Otherwise Geeklog will show you nice, blank pages due to missing

Finally I chown\'d all of the files to www:www .

I believe that was it. We have similar servers, so it shouldn\'t cause you too many problems. Elapsed time incl. screwups < 1 hour.

(And now to report a bug with user.php).

Hi. I\'m running 1.3.7rc1 - anything in partiular I should know? I just read the instructions but don\'t see anything relating to that upgrade. Can I just overwrite a few files, or do I need to do a full upgrade?

You need to replace a couple of files (can\'t tell you which ones off-hand - check with CVS or just replace them all).

And you should run the install script again, i.e. just tell it that you are upgrading from 1.3.6. Or execute this SQL request manually (replacing gl_personal_events accordingly if you\'re using a prefix other than gl_):

ALTER TABLE gl_personal_events DROP PRIMARY KEY, ADD PRIMARY KEY (eid,uid);

  • server intensive?
  • Authored by:isol8 on Monday, December 16 2002 @ 03:38 pm EST
anything that would make this release any more server intensive than any others.

my reason for asking....
about an hour after installing 1.3.7, my account was suspended for creating too many apache processes. there wasn\'t a spike of users or anything. 1 reg. and 1 guest user online and all of the sudden my host suspended my account.

which leads me to my next question.
anyone know of a good, cheap, reliable hosting provider?

Just Do It! I can't recommend them enough. Been using them for a year now, and they're great.

Try me -!

Very cheap, and never had a problem with any of my GL installs.

\"$_THEME_URL\" is mentioned in the release notes but is not in the config file. How do we use this?

That's explained in the Theme changes.

Just did the upgrade on problems! One request I\'d like to make (and feel free to tell me to RTFM) is that for future releases would it be possible to list out the files that have changed?

For the most part I can figure it out from the change log. I think it would be nice for those of us who don\'t know where the newly updated function/feature resides to list out the *.php pages that have been updated from release to release.
