Since this is one of the biggest updates in Geeklog's history, we made a last-minute decision to call it Geeklog 1.4.0 (instead of 1.3.12). After almost one year in development, this update brings you the following new features:
register_globals = off. Please note, however, that some plugins and add-ons may still require it to be
$_CONF['advanced_editor'] = true;in your config.php.
Due to the huge amount of changes in the code, we are releasing this beta version before we move on to release candidates (and the final release, eventually). Therefore, the usual warning: If your life, reputation, or income depends on your Geeklog site, don't upgrade just yet. However, we do need your help here and would like to encourage you to download Geeklog 1.4.0b1[*2] and try it out. Please help us track down the (old and new) bugs in this new version.
The documentation[*3] still leaves something to be desired and will be updated step by step. We will also be publishing a few stories over the next couple of days, each focussing on one of the new features. And since our bugtracker is currently down, please use the official 1.4.0b1 bug thread[*4] in the forums instead.
