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[*1] . The system requirements for installing Geeklog v2.2.1 is now:
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:
... as well as a lot of other improvements and bug fixes. The complete list can be found on Github[*2] and in the history text file located in the docs directory of this release.
In the next month or so we plan to release a number of updated 3rd party plugins that include bug fixes, support for PHP v7.3, and support for the latest Geeklog v2.2.1 features (where needed). This includes:
These plugins can be found on Github in our Geeklog Plugins Repository[*3] . Most are currently in testing and have close to final code. Feel free to test these updated plugins and provide any feedback.
Note: Make sure your 3rd party Geeklog plugins are updated to the latest version as they are required to use the function COM_createHTMLDocument. This replaces the functions COM_siteHeader and COM_siteFooter. If you are unsure if a plugin supports Geeklog v2.2.0 then either disable it before the Geeklog Upgrade, or uninstall the plugin.
