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.

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.
