Geeklog 1.3.8rc2

  • Contributed by:
  • Views:

Release Candidate 2 for Geeklog 1.3.8 is now available for download. It has a couple of fixes over 1.3.8rc1, most notably more restrictive checks for proper topic access. See the Changelog for a complete list of changes.

There were no database changes over 1.3.8rc1, so rc1 sites can be upgraded by replacing the files (there is no upgrade archive available, but the file docs/changed-files has a list of all the files that changed since 1.3.8rc1).

The tarball also includes updated language files for Italian, Japanese, Polish, Spanish, and Swedish as well as a new language file for "formal" German.

The Change Log currently only goes up to GL 1.3.8rc1. Is there a list of
the changes in 1.3.8rc2?

Are you using Safari again? ;-) That browser caches way too much ...

Both the history file as linked from the above story as well as the one included in the tarball list all the changes up to and including 1.3.8rc2 ...

bye, Dirk

Blast! Yes, I am still using Safari. I didn't realize it loved caching so
much. Maybe it's time I went back to Camino.

Sorry about the stupid question.

Just a note. It appears to me that 1.3.8rc2 doesn't like the timezone hack. When I try to use the edited lib-common.php with the timezone hack, I get a couple of parse errors for lib-common and index.php (I didn't copy them, but if you'd like to know what they are, I can use the edited version and get them again). However, when I use the normal lib-common.php that comes in the rc2 download, everything works like normal. Anybody else experiencing this problem?

Sorry, works for me. Better check or semi colons.

Put this right after the require_once line.

if ( !empty($_CONF['timezone'])
&& !ini_get("safe_mode")) {


Have a great day.

Even works if you put it in the lib-custom.php file.


Have a great day.

Huzzah! It works. I must have been putting it in wrong. That'll teach me to go spouting off before I check everything...

Thank you very much. :-)

I am not too sure if this has been addressed, but I have a suggestion for the calendar. I came across the VCalendar format. It would be neat if the calendar offered the ability to add events to an individual's calendar on their system, rather than within the web. All that is needed is a .vcs file with the following in it:

SUMMARY:Test Event

If a temporary .vcs file could be created on the server on demand, whenever someone wants to add an event, they could simply click on a link that downloads the file and saves it to their calendaring system.

I'd like to say that Gallery 1.3.4 integrates nicely with this new GeekLog package using the integration found at GPlugs.

Indeed it does.

how dumb would it be to use gl1.3.8rc2 on a production site?

I've been wondering the same thing. I mean if I knew the timetable
for a final release was relatively soon I wouldn't even consider it.
However if FC is months and months away, I am tempted.

I've been wondering the same. This site uses the RC but then again they can easily fix things if it goes KABOOM!

In one of the forum posts, Dirk indicated that the final release was "a few days" away. Of course that assumes that no new issues crop up that they need to fix first.

Probably not too dumb. I'm using it here., with no problems.

The final release won't be days, but it won't be months either.


Have a great day.
