Groklaw shutting down

Many of you will know Groklaw, if only back from the days of their role in the epic battle against SCO and their litigation against Linux. Groklaw was also the biggest (in terms of users) Geeklog site out there.

"Was", unfortunately, because PJ has decided that, effective immediately, the site will no longer be operating.

The owner of Lavabit tells us that he's stopped using email and if we knew what he knew, we'd stop too.

There is no way to do Groklaw without email. Therein lies the conundrum.
(...)
So this is the last Groklaw article. I won't turn on comments. Thank you for all you've done. I will never forget you and our work together. I hope you'll remember me too.

Thanks, PJ and the Groklaw community for all you have done for Open Source in general and Geeklog in particular. We will sure remember you all!

For the rest of us, maybe it's time we think about the recent events and disclosures and what can be done about them, as they seem to start to be doing more harm than good.

The third release candidate of Geeklog version 2.0.0 is now available for download. For the full list of bug fixes found in Geeklog 2.0.0rc3 please read the included change log found in the docs directory of the download.

We expect that this release candidate will be the last one before the final Geeklog 2.0.0 release. If you have a chance please test this release on a non-production site. If you find any bugs, you can add them to the Geeklog Bugtracker. If all goes smoothly we hope the final version of Geeklog 2.0.0 to be released by the end of March.

As always we welcome new and updated translations. If you speak a language other than English and you would like to help out the Geeklog community, translations are a great place to start.

Geeklog 1.8.2 is now available for download.

This is a maintenance release that fixes some bugs in Geeklog 1.8.1, most notably some incompatibilities with MySQL 5.5 and the Twitter OAuth login as well as a few minor issues.

There were no changes in the database, the themes, or the language files, so this should be a straightforward upgrade from any previous 1.8.x release.

Well you may have noticed a few changes with Geeklog.net. We have upgraded the site to use Geeklog 2.0.0rc1 and have switched over to a new theme called Modern Curve.

We have already updated the topics of the site to take advantage of the new child topics feature and you can expect to see other changes coming in the near future that will make it easier to find information and support on Geeklog.

We also have 2 demo sites now (thanks to Ironmax). One is for the current version of Geeklog found at http://demo.geeklog.net and the second one is for any pre-releases at http://demonext.geeklog.net. Links to the Geeklog demo sites can be found under the Resources block on the left.

The first beta version of Geeklog 2.0.0 is now available for download.

New features in this version include:

  • Improved strength of password hashing
  • Allow Topics to have child Topics
  • Allow Articles, Blocks and other Plugin objects to be associated with more than one Topic
  • Topic Breadcrumb support
  • Emergency Rescue Tool is included with the Geeklog Install
  • Added support for MySQLi
  • Add Stop Forum Spam and Spam Number of Links Modules to Spam-X
  • A new theme called Denim which is based on Responsive Web Design
  • A new theme called Modern Curve
  • Comments Form on same page as article

... as well as a lot of other improvements. The complete list can be found in the history.txt file located in the download.

The implementation of the new Topic features required changing how Topics are handled in Geeklog. For this reason there are a few Geeklog plugins that are not compatible with this new Geeklog version. Most of the plugins that are incompatible are ones that install their own blocks and/or create a centerblock. Upgrading a Geeklog site to 2.0.0 with plugins that are currently installed that do deal with blocks or topics could cause your site not to function. These plugins should be disabled before upgrading Geeklog. The current release of the Forum plugin (2.8.0) is not yet compatible with Geeklog 2.0.0 but by the time of the final release (or soon after) a new version of the Forum plugin will be released which will be fully compatible.

We would also like to put a request out there for translators. If you speak and write another language besides English or Japanese and would like to contribute to Geeklog please join the geeklog-translations mailing list. Translating Geeklog isn't complicated. Instructions can be found on the Geeklog Wiki or simply ask on the translation list.

We would like to encourage you to download this beta version, try it out, and give us your feedback. This is a beta version and it may still contain bugs. If you find any please report them in our Bug Tracker. We also do not recommend running beta versions on "live" sites. We do plan on rolling out updates over the next weeks with the final version hopefully ready to ship in late June.

For more details on the changes plugin developers will need to make moving forward please read below...

In case you were encountering an error message when calling up geeklog.net earlier today: We had a scheduled update of the server software that had some unscheduled ;-) side effects. Everything should be working as expected again now - and if not, please let us know.

EasyFile plugin SQL injection

An SQL injection vulnerability in the EasyFile plugin has been found and published by a user who calls himself Hellboy (the vulnerability is reported as being in Geeklog, but it really only affects the EasyFile plugin).

Given that the EasyFile plugin hasn't been updated in years, we assume that it is no longer maintained. If you use this plugin on your site, we recommend that you uninstall the plugin and remove all the files that belong to it as soon as possible.

We have removed the EasyFile plugin from our download area. If there are any other sites out there mirroring the plugin, please remove it from those sites as well. Thank you.
