Geeklog v2.1.2 is now available for download.

This version of Geeklog supports PHP 7 and the default install of MySQL 5.7. The minimum requirements have changed slightly and now are:

  • PHP 5.3.3 or higher
  • MySQL 4.1.2 or higher (MySQL 5 recommended)
  • Postgresql 9.1.7 or later

We have also dropped support of MSSQL and have removed the Professional and Professional_CSS themes from the install.

New features and fixes in this version include:

  • [Feature] Added Language override feature

  • [Feature] Geeklog Install files can now be deleted on successful install or upgrade
  • [Feature] New Denim Curve them which replicates the older Modern Curve theme. The Denim Curve theme is a child theme of the Denim theme
  • [Bug] Geeklog can now handle emoji icons and 4-byte characters. They can either be removed from the input or saved (depending on website setup)
  • [Bug] Daily Digest URLs in articles are converted into absolute URLs.
