Discontinuing PHP 4 support

Starting with Geeklog 1.8.0, Geeklog will require PHP 5.2.0 or later to run. The last version of Geeklog to run on older PHP versions will be 1.7.2, to be released in early 2011.

To put things into perspective: Support for PHP 4 by the PHP development team offically ended on December 31, 2007. A last official release, PHP 4.4.9, was made on August 8, 2008. Since then, no security or other bugfixes have been released for PHP 4.

Some Linux distributions with long-term support, most notably Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (RHEL 4) and CentOS 4, shipped with PHP 4 at the time they were released and have therefore committed to continue PHP 4 support until the end of their support period. Therefore, unfortunately, there are still "supported" PHP 4 installations out there.

As a compromise and service to those of our users being "stuck" on such a setup, the Geeklog Team will continue to provide security fixes for the Geeklog 1.7 branch in a timely manner until February 29, 2012 (which coincides with the "End of Production 3 phase" for RHEL 4). Where by "timely", we mean "as soon as possible, but not necessarily on the same day as the then-current release". The further versions drift apart, the more work will it be for us to backport fixes.

Overall, however, we would really suggest that you switch to a host running PHP 5.2 or later, if at all possible and as soon as possible.

Geeklog 1.7.1sr1

Security

Geeklog 1.7.1sr1 addresses an XSS in the Configuration admin panel, reported by Aung Khant of the YGN Ethical Hacker Group. Due to the built-in CSRF protection this weakness is somewhat harder to exploit but we would nonetheless advise that you secure your site by installing this update ASAP.

In addition to the complete 1.7.1sr1 tarball, there are also update files for Geeklog 1.7.1 and for Geeklog 1.6.1sr1 that contain only a fixed version of the affected file (see the included README file for installation instructions).

Users of older Geeklog releases should consider upgrading to Geeklog 1.7.1sr1 soon (use the complete 1.7.1sr1 tarball to upgrade from any older version).

The new version of jQuery plugin 1.2 has 2 new features: colorized code syntax and advanced editor CKEditor.

Syntax highlighter

Syntax highlighting of code by the jQuery plugin from Lars Corneliussen, based on the work of Alex Gorbachev, is one of the most complete diagram. It also provides functions such as simple and effective "View Code" in a new window, copy it to the clipboard or print it.

CKEditor


CKEditor is the result of the project FCKEditor, the advanced editor already present in the base distribution of Geeklog. To discover this new version, this variant was integrated into jQuery plugin for Geeklog.

Refer to the documentation in the wiki to learn how to enable these new features and how to use them.
