Geeklog 1.8.1rc1

Geeklog 1.8.1 is a maintenance release and a recommended upgrade for Geeklog 1.8.0. The first release candidate is now available for download.

Geeklog 1.8.1 fixes a regression with the [code] and [raw] tags which didn't escape content properly in 1.8.0. This release also ships with jQuery 1.6.3, which fixes a possible XSS in that popular JavaScript library. To the best of our knowledge, this XSS did not affect Geeklog itself, but it may potentially exist with plugins that make extensive use of jQuery. For other changes, please see the documentation and the included ChangeLog.

Geeklog 1.8.1 does not introduce any changes in the language files (other than some updated or new translations), in the theme, or in the database. So upgrades from Geeklog 1.8.0 should be pretty straightforward.

Please help us test this release candidate so that we can release the final version soon. Thanks.

Geeklog 1.8.0 is now available for download.

With Geeklog 1.8.0 we have raised the minimum system requirement for PHP. PHP version 5.2.0 or greater is now required.

There are a number of new features with this version of Geeklog. These include:

  • Improved Configuration, which was the Google Summer of Code project of Akeda Bagus from 2010. Improvements include the ability to search for configuration attributes, tabs, input validation as well as an updated look.
  • OAuth Support, allowing users to log into a Geeklog site with their Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn account, developed by Hiroshi Sakuramoto of Geeklog Japan.
  • Includes jQuery 1.5.2 and jQuery UI 1.8.11
  • Updated Professional theme with new icons and tooltips.
  • Reworked Plugin Admin interface that now checks for dependencies when a plugin is installed.

Please note: In our beta version and release candidates for Geeklog 1.8.0 a number of Geeklog paths were disclosed as variables in JavaScript. It is highly recommended to upgrade any of your sites using these versions to the final version of Geeklog 1.8.0.

Developers, please read more below to find out what has changed or is new in Geeklog that may affect development of themes and plugins.

Geeklog 1.8.0rc2

We found a few more bugs in 1.8.0rc1, so we decided that another release candidate was necessary. Geeklog 1.8.0rc2 is now available for download.

This version fixes problems with the plugin update option, with updating from an old Geeklog version, and also fixes a (non-exploitable) SQL error with comment notification emails.

We would appreciate any feedback on this release candidate. Also, if you have a chance to run this version on a test setup, please try to upgrade a copy of your site's database to help us ensure we've solved all the upgrade problems now. Thank you!

If all goes well, the final 1.8.0 will be out by mid-June.
