Title: SMF 2.0.13 Released
Post by: Oldiesmann on January 05, 2017, 03:31:47 PM
Please do not use this topic for support requests.
You will receive a much quicker and better response by posting in the 2.0.x Support Board (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?board=147.0) or the Install and Upgrade Help board (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?board=10.0).


Dear Members,

Simple Machines Forum has released a new patch to the 2.0.x line, bringing our latest release version to 2.0.13.

This patch is a security and maintenance release, which focuses on fixing a couple of minor bugs, while adding some enhancements and a patch to a security vulnerability reported in the software. Additionally, this release corrects an issue introduced in 2.0.12. Therefore, it is important that you install this patch in a timely manner.

If you are running version 2.0.12, you can upgrade your forum to the latest version by using the package manager. As usual, you should see the upgrade notification in the admin panel notifications and in the package manager, which will allow you to download and install the patch seamlessly.  If you do not see the notification about the upgrade patch, please run the scheduled task "Fetch Simple Machines files" from the Scheduled Tasks page (Admin > Maintenance > Scheduled Tasks > Fetch Simple Machines Files (check the "Run Now" checkbox and click the "Run Now" button)).

If you use older versions of SMF, you can upgrade directly to 2.0.13 from whichever version you are currently using by using the "full upgrade" archive from the downloads page. Be aware that using this upgrade method will require you to reinstall any customizations that you have added to your forum, so if you are running a version of the 2.0.x series, it is recommended that you apply the successive patches instead of using the full upgrade.

You can view the change log for the latest release, as usual, on the downloads page (http://download.simplemachines.org/index.php?thanks;filename=smf_2-0-13_changelog.txt).

If you are having problems downloading the patch from the admin panel, you can download the patch package from the upgrade patches page (http://custom.simplemachines.org/upgrades/) and install it via the package manager, as you would any other mod package

Please refer to the Online Manual for more details about:

Thank you for using SMF!

Regards,
Simple Machines Forum Team

We did make the patch available... That function doesn't rely on the Patches page showing the download link. Otherwise we wouldn't post this news. ;)
So running maintenance will make it appear. :) It if does not, please open a topic in the support board or indeed do it manually. (And yes, the file to do it manually should be visible by now - I'm sure the caches for that page will have expired by now.)

Actually, 2.0.13 was prepared in 2016 -- changing it to 2017 would have involved multiple versions of the software out there with the same version number. :P

Hello
Thank you for this upgrade.
I alway wonder, to upgrade from 2.012 to 2.013, is it possible to simply uoload the files from à new donnload ?
I mean remplace 2012 index.php  with 2013 index.php
and so for all the files concern in change log ?
Merci

Yes. However, you run the risk of breaking mods. The safest way is to use the package manager.

Colin any updates on the 2.0.14 release?
Title: Re: SMF 2.0.13 Released
Post by: Kindred on February 06, 2017, 10:41:01 PM
When it is ready
Title: Re: SMF 2.0.13 Released
Post by: MobileCS on February 19, 2017, 03:09:03 PM
When it is ready

I'm not sure if you're aware of this or not, but answering a question with simply "when it's ready" comes across as quite rude. I've been desperately waiting for this update, as this forum software is the only thing I have on this server that doesn't support PHP 7.

I need to upgrade so I can be sure my new projects are fully PHP 7 optimized and compatible. This is how I make a living, it's not a hobby or "because I want the latest and greatest".

With that said, does anyone have a rough timeline when this update will be available?
Title: Re: SMF 2.0.13 Released
Post by: Steve on February 19, 2017, 03:24:25 PM
Unfortunately no and SMF never gives projected release dates anyway.

Sorry about the answer sounding rude but that's the only answer we give when asked when an update will be released.
Title: Re: SMF 2.0.13 Released
Post by: MobileCS on February 20, 2017, 12:34:12 PM
Any reason why the 2.0.x is hidden on GitHub? Why not open it up and let others pitch in and get the developers past any roadblocks they have run in to?

Also, I see that active support for PHP 5.6 ended last month. They are only doing security updates now.
Title: Re: SMF 2.0.13 Released
Post by: Kindred on February 20, 2017, 12:45:06 PM
it is because that is how we built the 2.0 branch.
Since the 2.0 branch is not in active development any more, there is no purpose in opening the branch to the public, since we're not going to generally accept anything but security patches at this point anyway.

Although RedHat will support PHP 5.3 until 2020 when support for RHEL 6 ends, and PHP 5.4 ( I think ) in RHEL 7 until 2024, Debian 7 is PHP 5.4 and that's supported until 2018 and Debian 8 is PHP 5.6 and thats supported until 2020. Both will receive security updates from upstream and is maintained by others so whilst PHP have declared it EOL its far from being EOL.

I use FreeBSD, so things work a bit differently. PHP is removed from the ports system once PHP no longer officially supports it. As it stand now, PHP 5.6 is the earliest version you can install (5.4 and 5.5 have been removed).

I really hope that the SMF 2.0.14 update is released before PHP 5.6 disappears as well or I'm in trouble.

Post by: Arantor on February 28, 2017, 02:40:30 AM
5.6 is still supported, and for much longer than usual while people get ready for PHP 7. 5.6 is receiving security support until the end of 2018.

5.6 is still supported, and for much longer than usual while people get ready for PHP 7. 5.6 is receiving security support until the end of 2018.

That's not the issue ... the issue for me is having to paying an extra $150/month for a second dedicated server so I can install PHP 7 to test / run my new projects on. The only reason I can't install PHP 7 on my original server is because this forum software doesn't support it - but everything else does.

I'm not trying to create any trouble - I understand your developers hit a massive road block. I'm just in bad position because of it.

Most good hosts can let you switch between PHP versions on a per folder basis...

Fair enough, does anyone know if the PHP 7 update for SMF 2.0.x is still being worked on - or has it been abandoned?

THAT^ is exciting.

Any news on IPv6 support? The current mod out there breaks the hell out of SMF, yet I'd gladly use that bad system vs. no IPv6 support.

Thanks!
Title: Re: SMF 2.0.13 Released
Post by: Arantor on March 15, 2017, 04:38:15 AM
The mod is all there is for 2.0 right now (and it works just fine on an otherwise unmodded forum so if it 'breaks the hell out of SMF' it's your mods doing it, not core SMF)

The mod is also the basis of what's in 2.1.

2.0.14 is a huge release introducing lots of changes and improvements to support https/ssl and mysqli.  We are testing out the patch here and at other team sites in order to hopefully prevent introducing any bugs during this process.
