Title: SMF 1.1 Release Candidate 3 is available!
Post by: Thantos on August 19, 2006, 04:12:52 PM
Simple Machines is proud to announce the release of SMF 1.1 RC3, the (really) final release of 1.1 before final.

There have been several significant changes since RC2 - this has led to an additional release candidate (as opposed to going straight to final). In particular, UTF8 support has been added to SMF, providing considerably better language support to our international users.

Other notable changes in RC3 include:

Security Update
We received a report detailing a bug in PHP (improper deletion of hash values in the zend_hash_del_key_or_index() function), causing a vulnerability in SMF. We have addressed this issue in this release.  We urge everyone who is using an earlier release of SMF 1.1 to update immediately.

Installing/Upgrading information
Upgrading from your current version of SMF to the latest version could not be simpler, just follow the standard procedure of executing upgrade.php.  But, please remember to make a backup!!  The upgrader will upgrade any installation from YaBB SE 1.5.5 all the way up to the latest version of SMF.  You can always find information in the Online Manual about things like installation (http://docs.simplemachines.org/index.php?board=2.0), upgrades (http://docs.simplemachines.org/index.php?board=3.0), and more.

Users with large boards
Any users upgrading from prior to SMF 1.1 RC2 will benefit from huge optimizations in the log table structure to reduce the ongoing operating load on the server. However to achieve these savings, the upgrade has a lot of work to do - which for boards with more than 75,000 posts may take quite some time. Please bear this in mind during the upgrade - try to do it at a slow time if at all possible. In most cases, it will take up to an hour to upgrade, but it could take several. Remember, the script has timeout protection and auto resume - so just get it started and leave it to do its job. We've added progress bars to the upgrade script to help give you an indication of how things are going!

Attention
While we are confident that there are no major problems with this release, we want to remind you that it is still not to be considered stable software. We do not recommend its use in "live" situations and if you are not comfortable with using this Release Candidate, we advise you to wait until the release of the final version before using the 1.1 line.

Important Notice to our Charter Members
After we released RC3 to the Charter Members, we discovered and corrected a problem with one of the UTF8 functions.  This function was causing a significant slow down in board performance.  We were also informed of a security related issue which we have corrected.  For these reasons, we are urging all Charter Members to update the source files for their boards, regardless of whether UTF8 is being used or not.

It really depends.  If we don't get a lot of bug reports then it shouldn't be too long.  However if we do get a lot of bug reports then we'll have to fix them.

Post by: Cache-man on August 21, 2006, 11:59:27 PM
Just a quick question. I really should know the answer to this by now, as I've been using SMF for well over a year now, but...What is the difference between the "Update" and the "Upgrade" packages for RC3 (or any other package for that matter)?

I'm currently running 1.1RC2 at www.cache-community.co.uk. I dont have many mods at the moment, apart from the IE style bar at the top of the screen if you are not registered (which I had to add to the code by hand from a mod, and cant remember off the top of my head, what code or what files I edited, although I'll more than likely have to hunt down the original mod after I upgrade/update).

So, which package should I use? Maybe this should be made more clear to newbies and semi-experienced users alike, cause at the moment ( and after a years experience) I can't make out which method I should use.
Is there not a package-manager style one-click update/upgrade!
Title: Re: SMF 1.1 Release Candidate 3 is available!
Post by: Thantos on August 22, 2006, 12:04:24 AM
Update is to go from the previous version to the latest version in the same branch.  So SMF 1.1 RC2 to RC3 you can use the update package.

Upgrade is to go from a previous branch or older versions of the same branch.  So SMF 1.0.x to SMF 1.1 RC3 would use the Upgrade.

When in doubt you can always use the upgrade package.

What kind of impact is this going to have on Mods?  Is there alot of major change in this?

Do i need to go through the process of uninstalling all my mods, upgrading and then reinstalling them as they get to 1.1 rc 3?  If I just upgrade will I be messing things up.  I have a crap load of mods too.

me too, I have 30+ mods and mods of mods.

I dont need to upgrade right this second, so I'm going to wait until the dust settles to see which mods work and which ones get updated.

Great work! Congrats.


I saw this in the change log:

Quote* Added a (manual) method by which the auto-news from SMF can be disabled. (Admin, ManageSmileys, Packages, Themes templates)

I've been unable to find this ...

Or I guess "manual" means that you have to do it via the files, directly.

Just a thought on the text from the download section and the upgrade package for 1.1rc3.

The text say
QuoteSMF 1.1 RC3 - update      zip  tar.gz  tar.bz2      419

Update package from the previous version, except when you have mods installed. You can use the upgrade package too, but it's larger.
Use this if you have SMF 1.1 RC3 installed. Remember to run upgrade.php, and if you're not using English get the new language files.

Shouldent it say "Use this if you have SMF 1.1 RC2 installed. "  :o

OMG NO !! :(
I hope you doesn't "force" us to switch to UTF-8.. this is really, really sucks when the template does NOT built in UTF8..
My current template is ISO-8859-8-I, if the entire database will be converted to UTF8, it will not work!

Is it only "UTF-8 support", or a complete change to a UTF-8 system ? Can I still NOT USE UTF-8 ?

I have a huge board (1,720,900 posts, 25,833 members) and can't afford to "backup and try"..

can you post the link to your smf rc 1.3, i wanna c it in action

There is little in the way of visual changes between RC2 and RC3.

do RC2 themes work on RC3?????
i mean if i have mods and themes installed to my smf rc2 board, will they be lost, or wouldnt they work?

RC2 mods in general work on RC3, however you need to update the package info so that the package states it supports RC3. Alternatively there is a URL override option i can't seem to find the link to atm, but it basically allows SMF to pretend it's a different version when installing mods.

ben, you're simply missing the point.
there is captcha module which handles them both, and it is good to have it there.

please, consider it again, it needs to be done primairly on the guest posting.

Question:

QuoteAdded a CAPTCHA option to the registration page (Including audio support for accessibility).

CAPTCHA is only available for use during registration?  I thought it might be made use by guests to post comments on actual forum posts ???

Anyone?

It's only in registration, adding it to guest posts would have been too many template changes and broken backward compatability with existing 1.1x templates. I'm sure for those who need it, someone will write a mod.

It cannot be done for the template issues mentioned above - it is too late the fact it was added to registration goes against the ethos of software in release candidate stage.

It may be added to the version after 1.1x but it will not be in 1.1x. If it's a major problem, you can always disable guest posting or like I said, someone is likely to release a mod.

Captcha is only on the registration page for all those who are wondering.

UTF mode doesnt need to be used, I dont :)

No. There will be even a bigger upgrade if you want to go from RC2 to final and you will lose the mods then too. Also there may be new mods that are only made for 1.1 RC3 and not RC2 since it is now an older version. Because of the php bug, it is highly recommended to upgrade to RC3.

Security Update
We received a report detailing a bug in PHP (improper deletion of hash values in the zend_hash_del_key_or_index() function), causing a vulnerability in SMF. We have addressed this issue in this release.  We urge everyone who is using an earlier release of SMF 1.1 to update immediately.

And that answers that.

You can however update 1.1 RC2 to 1.1 RC2-2 by applying the modifications in the Package Manager. Note that this is just a onetime courtesy that will only update your forum security-wise and will not fix any of the other bugs that were fixed in 1.1 RC3.

Or I guess "manual" means that you have to do it via the files, directly.

My apologies if I just missed the answer to this, but since I posted this about 4 or 5 page back, I figure I'd ask, again.

Can this only be turned off manually by chaning whatever needs to be changed in the files directly or is there a setting in the admin center to do so?

At any rate, may I suggest that you say this is possible and how to do this in the pop-up help box for the auto-news, if not in a more conspicuous place.

The function disables news, updates, latest packages and latest smiley sets to be retrieved from the simplemachines.org server. It can be 'enabled' by the following query:

Nothing has changed in that respect. Convert your tables to InnoDB (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=50217.0)

QuoteMy board has:  185820 Posts in 47327 Topics by 48808 Members. Total 1,8 gig database.
That's pretty big, even for that amount of posts/topics/members. Maybe you should check if your error log isn't growing too much(?)

QuoteIs it a good idee to upgrade without having the board in maintanance mode?
That depends on what version you're coming from. 1.1 RC2 -> 1.1 RC3 shouldn't be too much of a problem. All other conversions would be better off being done in maintenance mode.

Me, I'm a Big Chicken , I dont just wait until the dust settles, I wait until the Fire goes out and then
after a long nights sleep I will revisit the idea of updating my websites.
Lost a few things in betas over the years and I am cautious.
A Year before I used SMF,When I was running PHPBB we lost 800+ ,member and the back up was corrupt UGG! :-\

I think like most, losing some key mods, are atleast my issue, the update of mods is anywhere from 2-8 months for the next release by modders to accomidate the update.
I started out my Forums from 1.02 long ago and slowly would update way later.
I just a month ago finally took 10 of my sites up to rc 2 .
Being most of my mods now had new versions I just uninstalled them updated them with teh new mods.

One wonders if giving an Guestimate of a Final would help Modders. i mean would a Modder want to work 8 months and then have a new release a month later :-)

Love the updates I will put on a test board ASAP.

There aern't that many changes to the places that many mods modify in RC3. I've 25% done updating my mods and RC3 has been out for less than 24 hours. I haven't had to change a single thing in the mods I've already converted, with the exception of the supported versions.

UTF-8 languages files are only needed after you've converted your forum to UTF-8 (which you should by no means do, unless you need UTF-8 support). The upgrade package does upgrade all english language files. If you use other language files, you should download them from the download page.

Your index.template.php is up to date too? Also make sure you do a hard refresh (ctrl-f5) so that all files reload.

Hey, I converted my forum into the UTF-8; I have english,french,german and spanish languages files uploaded onto my forum so do I need to the other versions that are for UTF8?

All files are up to date and i did a hard refresh. I have modified the Index.template.php a bit but nothing to drastic.

CORRECTION:

It does work in IE 6 but not in FF

be sure you did BACKUP your data before updating to UTF-8

I've SMF 1.1 RC2. What should I do to upgrade the version? I've some mods installed: SMF Shoutbox, Arcade Mod, SMF Bridge and Spoiler tag

Thanks

Well, read some of the pages in this thread?

Wait for all the MOD's and Themes you installed to be compatible if you realy need them, then install the upgrade or do a fresh installation of RC3 + the mods. In any case BACKUP YOUR DATABASE!

You can check the mod's page on the mod site and user comments in the mod's topics to see if the mod has been updated for RC3. If you can't live without those mods, you can even install a test copy of SMF where you can see if SMF 1.1 RC3 is compatable with those mods. If you give it some time, most mod authors will completely update their mods for SMF 1.1 RC3 soon.

I installed the update on forum with no problems.  I tried to install the upgrade on my other forum and it's telling me the following message!!

QuoteThe upgrader found some old or outdated files.

Please make certain you uploaded the new versions of all the files included in the package.

Click here to try again.

I am updating from RC2-2 and I don't know how to find what files it's referring too!!  Any suggestions or ideas.  I also made sure I downloaded the update zip and not the upgrade!!  Thanks again for any tips or advice!!

Post by: vdubbia on August 22, 2006, 10:05:37 PM
I'm using the SAF Multicolor theme and the upgrade went smoothly with the exception of the auto delete of the upgrade.php file.  Once I deleted that manually things operate normally, including the CAPTCHA on registration.

One thing that did happen was that initially page load times approached 20-30 seconds, but that could have been a load on my host's server.  Will keep an eye on it.  Is there anything in the upgrade that would inherently slow the forum down? 

Thanks for your hard work and a quality product.

My only other feedback is that the CAPTCHA images are too difficult to decipher... I know that's part of the function of them, but still, the letters seem a bit too small and/or blend in too much into the background.  Can I substitute my own image files for these?

I have no Idea. They claim that you have to update index.template, script.js and style.css, but none of that works. The language files are supposedly updated with the rest of the files. (or gave an illusion of it)

Nice one guys, although a bit of constructive crit really...

I have a large board thats very popular, around 15 new signups per day at the moment (www.ClubCalibra.com) and any downtime is detrimental to the growth of the site.

I can duplicate the site and attempt an upgrade on the mirror site but its a frustrating having to uninstall all mods, and reinstall within the new version, hoping that they'll be compatible with the RC3 version!

A suggestion to the developers, create a new type of mod thats 'modular', i.e. instead of 'applying a modification' that alters existing core pages, the mod's are independent and can simply be placed within the sites structure (/mods/Guestbook/) and the site picks up the script and allows you to place it within designated placement areas (could be infinite amounts of these, or the option for the users to hardcode new placement designators).

Such implementation would mean that upgrades etc wouldn't affect installed mods, would be heaven to administrators of busy sites such as mine!

Many thanks,

But my point is that I think the modification system could be better coded, I don't believe that modifications should be changing core 'system' files - it means the mods are controlling the forum whereas the forum should be controlling the mods else you begin to lose integrity.

Not necessarily, PHP Nuke manages to achieve such simply by dumping a directory into the Blocks folder - including pretty sophisticated modifications and integrations with other PHP applications.

I'll be setting up a test board, its just frustrating having to reinstall all mods, especially when we've modified some mods post-install to better suit them to our forum!

PHP Nuke also manages to be a security hole out of the box usually.

As long as the package doesn't give warnings, i.e. it says "Test Successfull", then it's perfectly safe to install, I happily apply mods etc with over 1000 users online.

I only get about 40 registrations a day now and don't consider mine to be all that big. 2 hours of downtime to upgrade couldn't cost you more than 1-2 registrations if you time it right. Check your stats and see when your least popular time is...than go from there.

If I remember correctly, the back up is made directly to your mysql server.  You will see something like 'backup_smf_dbname' for all the smf categories in addition to the new entries that the upgrade will make.

Hello,

I've SMF 1.1 RC2. What should I do to upgrade the version? I've some mods installed: SMF Shoutbox, Arcade Mod, SMF Bridge and Spoiler tag

Thanks
You can check the mod's page on the mod site and user comments in the mod's topics to see if the mod has been updated for RC3. If you can't live without those mods, you can even install a test copy of SMF where you can see if SMF 1.1 RC3 is compatable with those mods. If you give it some time, most mod authors will completely update their mods for SMF 1.1 RC3 soon.

Hm ok, but what do I do to upgrade the version? I never upgraded a SMF version, sorry.

First I'm sorry for my english. Second thanks for the great work you guys do ;).

I've three questions:

1.- I use 1.1.RC2 is extremely necessary to upgrade or update, (i don't get it the diference betewen this term, even after I read with the explanation :()

2.- Is fully stable? or is only for testing?

3.- In other site some friends use the 1.0.7 they won't upgrade o update this version is too old at this moment?

Thanks a lot

Post by: Dannii on August 24, 2006, 03:58:23 AM
1. No, but make sure you install the 1.1 RC2-2 security update if you don't.
2. No, it is a release candidate.
3. 1.0.8 is the latest stable release. It's not too old.
Title: Re: SMF 1.1 Release Candidate 3 is available!
Post by: Benson on August 24, 2006, 04:01:30 AM
fritpa, rc means Release Candidat, so consider this rc3 as test version. But you should update since 1.1rc2 has a vulnerability. For the same reason you should update 1.0.7 to 1.0.8. I guess you didn't read the news, else you would have known about the vulnerability....  ;)

Quote1.- I use 1.1.RC2 is extremely necessary to upgrade or update, (i don't get it the difference between this term, even after I read with the explanation

The visual changes are not much at all, but a lot of bugs are fixed and the version is very much more stable then 1.1rc2 :)  Also, it loads a LOT faster then 1.1rc2 did, so thats the biggest change i have noticed so far :)

QuoteIs fully stable? or is only for testing?

You could say it's stable, but it is still i beta so some errors can show up as in all rc releases.

QuoteIn other site some friends use the 1.0.7 they won't upgrade o update this version is too old at this moment?

1.0.7 is quite old 8 month if i remember correct, the reason to upgrade to 1.0.8 from 1.0.7 is for small fixes like better security, faster load times. Most newer releases are improvements from the earlier versions, thats why they release updates :)

Hello all. I've installed this upgrade and very good it is. However, I had integrated FlashChat with rc2 and now that I've tried to reinstall the integration I just get a white screen (although the loading bar states that the page has loaded, the forum doesn't appear). The flashchat prog works fine in isolation but the instructions at http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=66561.0 (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=66561.0) don't seem to work.

but im not going to read 17 pages for it I will just report it now :)


When i press the QuickEdit button at a message, I get in the Babylon theme a green bar at the top saying: "Loading..." and that stays there but never i can quick edit a message

in the stats panel i wanna expand a month by clicking on it,
it rejects to expand, only with typing in the correct url it expands.

I dont know but I suppose this is not correct, and dont know if its only a bug at my forum but at least i wanted to report it here so you would know about it.

I also get this bugs working in the Simple Default Theme - Core, both are updated to RC3

karma works for me...
Though Im using Karma Description Mod But I do not belive it mods the Session verification part of it.
Did you try to logout and back in again?
I get that and a simple logout and login fixes it most of the time.

For those with karma problems, try testing it with the defult theme.  I had the same problem and I realized it was a problem in all of the themes I had installed before the upgrade. 


Now I think I may have found a security issue  I have been having a lot of trouble with people joining my site just to post porn so after the upgrade I changed the registration so that I must approve all accounts before they can post.  I enabled the Visual safety thing.  I also placed a Custom Profile field that was mandatory at registration asking why they wanted to join.  I tried registering several times and all worked well.  If you miss any one it would not let you register.

This morning I found that someone had been able to register to full access without my approval and without filling in the required fields. Thankfully they didn't post any porn but judging from the IP and the email address I feel sure it is either an email collector or a spamer.  How are they getting in???

By the way you can see my registration screen here: http://www.chinchillaclub.com/forum/index.php?action=register  They are certainly not coming in that way because the only thing they were apparently having to give was their email address!!

I use MKportal with SMF 1.1 RC2 with several mods + some additional registration fields and the necessary display customization.
Please advise me


          Do I have to upgrade to SMF 1.1 RC3 anyway, before geting to the SMF final release
                                  OR
          I may apply the security update only and wait for the SMF final release ?

Yes, applying the security update should be sufficient to keep your forum secure. Be aware however that the security patch for 1.1 RC2 was a one time courtesy and in case there's a new security update, the 1.1 RC2 version might no longer be supported.

I guess i don't have any old file right now, but this message still shows up..

The idea of the upgrade is errase all old files and upload de new ones? or  I must only overwrite the same files the upgrade pack?

just upload everything over the old ones, if it doesnt work in 1 time, just overwrite the language files again
it should work after that, if you upload RC3 ;)

I upgraded my forums last night (since I didn't work that day or the day after) and all went well..
Had no problems. Only had to make a few tweaks..
I even was able to change the theme I was using to use that new ajax loader and theme changes in rc2 added into my custom theme.
Only problem I have right now is with uploading files and stuff. But I am blaming that on my isp right now.. Because it was working for a while then it stopped...

There is a problem to copy files for mod in SMF 1.1 RC3.

I tried to upgrade my HidePost mod. If I copy a file using the directory name, the file is not copyed after installing the mod.
      <require-dir name="Sources" destination="$boarddir" />

If I copy a file using the file name, the file is copyed and is empty after installing the mod.
      <require-file name="Sources/HidePost.php" destination="$sourcedir" />

hi friends  :)

a friend of mine is upgrading his 1.1 RC2 install and asked me to have a look of why some pages aren't working.
they're returning an error like this:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function: () in /*/*/*/*/Sources/Register.php on line 107

so I looked at the code and I've seen some line are changed with other call to functions like this:
'name' => ucwords(strtr($matches[1], '_', ' ')),
'name' => $func['ucwords'](strtr($matches[1], array('_' => ' ', '-utf8' => ''))),
or like this:
if (strlen($row['firstBody']) > 128)
if ($func['strlen']($row['firstBody']) > 128)

any suggestions of what may have caused the error?

sorry for the n00bish question  ;)

Post by: Richmedia on August 27, 2006, 06:20:36 AM
Okay, I just got done restoring my previous build, since the overwrite function lost all of my avatars and attachments.

One problem that I have been experiencing is the package manager says that the chmod permissions need to be changed for certain directories or files, but it doesn't specify which files those are. When I attempt to let SMF change the permissions required within the admin panel, it won't accept the user/pass, the very same one that works with my FTP client (InterArchie), as well as CyberDuck.

I'm not suggesting that the issue deals directly with the upgrade files, it did upgrade the forums, but lost (deleted, actually) all of the attachments and user avatars in the process. I also wasn't able to uninstall what few mods in place before the upgrade process, due to the package manager issues outlined above.

So I'm having some huge problems uninstalling what few mods I have, three or four, I think, since the Package manager is looking for an FTP user/pass, and I submit it, but it just  times out on me.

Has ayone experienced this behaviour? If so, what remedies might you suggest? I really, really don't wish to do a clean full install, but at this point, it may be the only solution that I see.

Thanks for your thoughts,

Rich

Hello and congratulations for this new release. I had just made a site with little to no content at all (just some boards configured) so i thought why not give a try to 1.1 RC3 and utf8 support?

The page is in greek and i deliberately wrote a message with all the greek characters to see if the conversion was going to work. First i tried the smf way with the intructions in the manual. It was a disaster! The whole board was full of question marks!

But i tried something else (tested localy with little success in the past and yabbse!).
I exported the database, loaded it in microsoft word (yes you heared correctly!) and chose that the text was in utf-8. Next i went to tools->fix broken text and choosed greek as the languange. The text was now perfectly readable. Made some replacing of latin1 words to utf8 and imported the db again.

Then upgraded with rc3 and select the utf8 lang as the default, and voila, everything is perfect. Or is it? Well almost. The only problem is that the last character in the subject of the latest message (statistics area on boardindex) shows as a question mark. This is the case no matter what this character is. So i suppose this is a bug of smf. Take a look to this screenshot :

(http://www.webservers.gr/forum/utf8_smf_1_1_RC3_small_error.png)

Can this be corrected? In the final 1.1 maybe? Thanks in advance for any feedback.
Title: Re: SMF 1.1 Release Candidate 3 is available!
Post by: Compuart on August 27, 2006, 09:29:44 PM
Technically, your forum isn't in UTF-8 mode yet. Therefor the UTF-8 string manipulation functions aren't being used and some characters might be cut off at the wrong byte.

Btw, the conversion was tested on multiple greek boards, so converting should've worked, unless the character set configured for the conversion wasn't set properly.

Thanks for the reply, the charset the data was in was windows-1253, the collation in the database however was latin1, maybe that was the problem?

Anyway, what should i do to enable " the UTF-8 string manipulation functions" ?

I hust converted the database from utf8 to .. utf8 (from smf's admin panel) and it seems the UTF-8 string manipulation functions enabled, so now absolutely no question marks  :D

Thanks!

SMF 1.1 RC3 is really rather stable to use in a production environment. I'd say start using that and then in the not too long future, (hopefully, unless there are a lot of new bugs found) SMF 1.1 final will come.

Excuse me, people are allowed to upgrade if they wish to do so. They can just use a forum until TinyPortal is released for its version :P

No. Alot of forum owners use TinyPortal. They should wait until the new version of Tiny Portal is released which should be soon. Besides there really ins't anything exciting or important in 1.1.rc3.

You really need to learn, there's an exploit in RC2 and people can update and wait :P

So what do we do with Tiny Portal that doesn't work with 1.1rc3? Just disable it. No.

just upgraded from 1.0.8 to 1.1 RC3. something is terribly broke. at the same time as the upgrade i installed the dilberMC theme so i'm not sure what's doing what. check out my main page and help me fix this sucker.
http://www.ottawacore.com/forum

the forum appears okay in xp but my 98 box shows "Sorry the copyright must be in template. Please notify this forum's administrator that this site is using an ILLEGAL copy SMF."

when i go into the first forum, in xp ie6, there is a javascipt error: Line: 530, Char: 2, Error: 'hide_prefixes' is undefined, Code: 0, ...

trying to open any of the admin functions is hit or miss. opening News and newletters shows: Parse error: parse error, unexpected $ in /serveraccount/public_html/forum/Sources/ManageNews.php on line 528

Just a comment.
Install a test forum with the new version from scratch and see if it works with your host.
Make a backup of your online forum to do testing on. It's not hard to do, seach.. there are detailed instructions on how to do it.  This is a MUST do, esp for those that have a lot of mods or custom themes.
This is a beta release, use on a production forum at your own risk.
Tiny Portal, or any Portal ( CMS ), or any gallery, or anything you have Integrated with SMF.. CHECK with them to see if it works with the latest BETA before you upgrade.
Rant ended.

But, I screwed up my forum with uncompatible mods then reinstalled 1.1RC3 flawlessly, and I never had to change the database once. Thanks for the release SMF team.

RC3 seems pretty solid, but updating my custom theme was a bit of a pain. This time I made a change log though, so updating for 1.1 Final should be a cinch :)

I mean is it a forum package like SMF 1.0.8 ? Is it something I need to download and install with the 1.0.8 software that I already have running... I just wana know if this is something I need to have installed with the 1.0.8 software or if this is something better that can / will replace the 1.0.8 software in its entirety... hope all this makes sense... either way regardless of the answer if I do use this I can say for sure that I will most likely wait for the final release of this program as I have read some people are having issue with upgrading / using this "beta" software for lack of a better word. I use the word beta loosely... beta to me is anything used before the programs actual / final released version.

RC is Release Candidate... we are coming close to a new, stable, final SMF version, it was working pretty well as RC2 and RC3 is supposed to have some few more features and be even more stabel...

Ignore this stuff, we are not talking about how to install, etc. in here. Just grab your copy of SMF RC3 installation and if you want to get Tiny Portal too and ... there you go.

Hello guys. Do you have any plans to have an easy way to restore the database? phpBB has "restore database" inside and works like clockwork. This may be the _only_ thing I like about phpBB, SMF is super at the rest!!

Do you plan to have any 1.0.8 -> 1.1 sharp converter or updater?

So then this is a program that will replace the 1.0.8 software in its entirety right. If so great as for downloading  using it sure I'd love to but as a fw others have said I'd prefer to wait for the final version to be roled out.

RC stands for Release Candidate which means that it is a candidate for release unless bugs are found. There have been some which have been found since it's released and fixed. And yes, its a forum package just like 1.0.8.

1.1 is a step up from 1.0.x as it includes new features, security and other nik-naks to sink your teeth into, like CAPTCHA, Report PM's to Admins, Inlined Editing and more. (See http://docs.simplemachines.org/index.php?board=40.0), so 1.1 replaces your 1.0 installation by overwriting the files.

1.1 will replace 1.0 for download when it goes Final, but it will still be supported. So even after 1.1 goes final, we will still help you out if you are still on 1.0.

Even I refer to the RC's as beta's from time to time. Though they are Release Candidates. There isnt really a lot of difference only Beta's can have new features, but RC's are mostly just bugfixes.

I'm going to assume the answer is yes or "its in the works" because from what I do and both dont understand I do know for a fact that a converter of sorts would make the integration of 1.1 easier on alot of people if the 1.0.x couldbe upgraded to 1.1 with ease.

1.0.x can already be upgraded to 1.1 with ease. You just download the upgrade package for 1.1 RC3 extract it to your computer, upload over 1.0.x and run upgrade.php in your browser.

When I upgraded to 1.1 for the time more than a year ago, I was suprised by how easy it was. (I went from 1.0.3 to 1.1 Beta 1, since I was a Charter Member at the time)

Since the forum is so huge I can maybe read it somewhere but the thing I wonder is if there is any list of decided features and one list with wishes?

One thing I wish is a somewhat different registration procedure.

A new member must write some reasons at the registration procedure why I should approve them, after that I want they to confirm the membership and after that I'll approve them and until then they can't see the member list. This is for get rid of spammers.

As traditionally said, "it will be ready when it is ready". No set release dates and it will be never set until it is actually released.

With that said, how long would the creators feasibly wait for bug reports to come in before accepting that it's time to release the final version?

Sorry, I know people must be sick of this question, but the launch of my site is literally hanging on this release, because I don't want to install RC3 or a prior version only to lose mods and such when upgrading.

I just upgraded to this earlier today - however where rc2 was great, rc3 has been giving me blank screens in firefox consistently, and IE randomly / on other computers constantly.  Which I posted about in upgrades help, so hopefully that's figured out, but if not....

I need people with all browsers to be able to see my forum...  Is there a way to downgrade from rc3 to something else?

Yesterday, I had a co-worker install SMF on our webserver so I could host a WoW forum for our guild. All I can say is WOW!  :o I can't wait to spend some time learning all that can be done on SMF.

Thanks

P.S. I look forward to becoming a charter member soon in support of SMF  :)

Attention
While we are confident that there are no major problems with this release, we want to remind you that it is still not to be considered stable software. We do not recommend its use in "live" situations and if you are not comfortable with using this Release Candidate, we advise you to wait until the release of the final version before using the 1.1 line.

Redistribution is totally illegal.

You can find 1.1 Rc2 via Downloads > Archived Releases

I know or at least I think I was able to setup defaults for member profiles.

How can I setup defaults settings on profile for things like "Use quick reply on topic display: " or "Turning on Notifications and Emails"

I did a search but I must no have the terminology right...

I keep asking myself that but I dont ask it publicly for one reason bec the answer everyone else always get is and I quote "it's released when its released..." Ya I'd like to se it out soon "the final ver" to but I'm not holding my breath for anytime soon... I'm betting it to be sometime next yr.

Edit : I will say this though the loner the better is well better in most cases bec the longer time it takes to release something means the more time there is to work out any "kinks" there may be.

I did had the same expectation on the answer that you gave me bloodwine but maybe there would be other kinda answer right ? This is why i asked this question :P

I am still hesitating in upgrading my forum board to RC 3 coz i've made a lot on modifications on the board and RC 3 sounds kinda buggy ( after see-ing so much error report on it  >:( ... I might be wrong thou :P )

So, anyone got a different answer ?  :D ;D

Right, it's not news.  Based on the history of previous releases, I expected this one to be released towards the end of December and said so in these forums quite some time ago.  In fact I gave two probable dates, but I cannot remember what they were.  Larry :D

It seems like a tradition or something, from what I've seen, klumy always does that. ;) 

As stated though, there isn't a release date. I (and I guess the rest of the team do as well) feel that it's better not to set one. That way people wont be disappointed if its not met. It'll just be a huge party when its released.

Post by: Gregory on October 05, 2006, 05:44:47 PM
wow, I remember New Year's RC2 release, when I was really getting stuck in with learning SMF code.
I would of wanted to phrase the question - if no bugs were found how long would the wait be before the team is confident enough to make it final? (feel free to ignore, i know you know we all want it to be tomorrow).

I have a site that uses quite a customized/edited SMF forum, but it's got in a mess so I want to sort of redo it from scratch but the database of members/posts/etc is quite important. If I set up a 1.1 forum and got it working, could I then seperatly use a convertor to change my 1.0.7 db to 1.1?
Or would I have to do something like upgrade my board and then copy my new 1.1 files to overwrite the upgrade ones?

Have the thems changed much (in terms of code) from 1.0.7/1.0.8?
I guess it is unlikely if I made a 1.1 RC3 theme that I would really have to change it for 1.1 final?

All you need to do is run the upgrade package. You don't need to install 1.1 first.

Themes didn't change between 1.0.7 and 1.0.8, and there will probably be only minor changes between 1.1 RC3 and 1.1 final.
Title: Where do bug reports go for RC3? I've looked and looked...
Post by: vuud on October 06, 2006, 03:37:23 PM

I cannot find anywhere to report bugs, or see if bugs have been reported.  So forgive me if this is in the wrong locations for it. 

I am running RC3 and had two problems so far:

* Calendar

I click on a date to add an event.  I select Link event to post.
Then I select an area to link it to (Post in).

As soon as I change that, it submits the form to a bigger form to fill out.  This form has everything right, but the POST IN I selected is lost.

* Themes, Create new theme from default and it says it did it successfully.  But nothing actually happens (it gets entered as a theme) aside from the directoty being created.  Nothing is actually copied or anything.  I think there are a few files that are supposed to be moved over.

Anyway, keep up the good work - I love SMF and its been good to me!

There are no known exploits for 1.1 rc3...
It would mean he needed a way to upload a script were it wasn't filtered. SMF filters what is uploaded. So a script can not be ran. Or some way to edit scripts on your site..

Do you run any mods?
I see you also run phpnuke.. You run the latest of that? with security holes patched.

--edit--
well you dont run phpnuke but you run other scripts like a calendar.. make sure those are updated.

Truth me, I am a security consultant, All my scripts are upto date and patched.  I am reviewing the logs to find out how he got in.  Once I figure that out, then I will know if it is a hole in SMF or a hole in one of my scripts, but by the looks of it so far it is SMF

If you belive its a security hole in rc3 use submit this form
http://www.simplemachines.org/about/security.php
You should know how to get your access logs and stuff since your a security consultant

This is totally off topic, but shouldn't someone as a security consultant be opposed to running a site which is reported to be a known distribution point of adware and trojans? Granted it was based of a single download on your site, but still, makes one wonder.

Is there a way to manually edit the changes from 1.1 rc2? We run a heavily modded board.
You can however update 1.1 RC2 to 1.1 RC2-2 by applying the modifications in the Package Manager. Note that this is just a onetime courtesy that will only update your forum security-wise and will not fix any of the other bugs that were fixed in 1.1 RC3.

I´m Glad to know this, Thanks

I Think I´ll wait for 1.1 final, my board is amazing with RC2 now  ;D

I've installed a basic test of the board and it seems to be running fine, which as RC1 and older versions didn't and RC2 was a little odd this is good news (all Mod Security issues)

My licence for IPB runs out in January, will the 1.1 final be around by then?

yes i know there probably isn't an answer as there ar a lot of facters, I'm just hopefull.

It looks he edited your index.php or Settings.php file.

You may delete Settings.php, then rename Settings_bak.php to Settings.php.

I had this problem as well where my setting.php file was overwritten with a HTML page from a turkish hacking group.  Still haven't figured out how exactly it happened.  I've since moved the site and changed the permissions on the settings file.  It is a pain to have to change it manually now, but I guess that is the price I pay until I can figure out what happened exactly.

That is exactly what happened to me, and I am still looking for the problem, they also not sure how the heck they did it, the screwed with my log files also.

I checked a hacker thread and they hit alot of sites running the SMF forum.

I would really love to upgrade my Forum to SMF 1.1.RC3 but I could not manage to do so because of errors about missing values in my DB...

Is there a such tool. I do not want to mess whit my DB.

Thank you all.

PS: I really love this realese by the way. I tried it on my localhost and it looked awsome to me. (Except that I can not work it on my own Forum : ( )

We do. It's called upgrade.php ;) Download the UPGRADE package for 1.1 RC3 and simply overwrite all the files for 1.0.8 with those for 1.1 RC3. And then run upgrade.php in your browser.

I would like to ask you about a tool which is able to convert SMF 1.0.8 DB backups to SMF 1.1.RC3.

We do. It's called upgrade.php ;) Download the UPGRADE package for 1.1 RC3 and simply overwrite all the files for 1.0.8 with those for 1.1 RC3. And then run upgrade.php in your browser.

-AwwLilMaggie

Thanks for the reply AwwLilMaggie.

I have been messing whit that little bugger (upgrade.php) since 5 days know. I had every kind of trouble. I had use your search engine for like couple of thousends times. I even learned how to use Apache and phpMyadmin. My PHP skills had another step in to future. But at the and what did I have? Nothing.

Well I found a little bug tough? It is a security issue about installation step=0. I will be glad if you give me an address that I can send it...

OK I have talked too much (AGAIN >: [) I am coming to my point.

Since I have mess whit my SMF 1.0.8 so much it has become really unstable. Themes, Mods, TP and every single kind of other stuff made it like a mess. What I would like to is clean everything and install a fresh SMF 1.1.RC3. Before this as I said I tried everything on my localhost and a subdomain on my server... All I had was tons of errors.

I see 2 ways to sort my bloody problem out;

1) Converting my DB to SMF 1.1.RC3 supported or at least I would be able to import my backups to this new DB after installation.

2) Throw my DB and all my work (and 500 other people work) in to bin and start to a new beginning with SMF 1.1.RC3.

I will be much appreciated if you guys help me on the 1st way...

Happy Halloween guys (and girls... (is there any girl in this forum? : DDD))

TRICK OR TREAT!!!!

Wow that was quick... I do not understand why people keep complaining about your response time... : D

Well I had mostly all problems after I install the forum.

FiFirstt gave me an error like this;

8: Undefined index: show_sp1_info
Dosya: /mounted-storage/home17b/sub003/sc19217-JUWS/deneme/Sources/BoardIndex.php
Satýr: 399

Then I searched the board and I uploaded Load.php

Then it gave me another error that I can not recall it anymore : ) I lost the track betven 20th and 50th error : DDD

Now I can not even install it gives me this on step=2:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function: cache_put_data() in /mounted-storage/home17b/sub003/sc19217-JUWS/deneme/Sources/Subs.php on line 708

I am really sorry to ruin your Halloween day whit such troubles....

PS: This themes spell check has got a problem (or I am the problem here : ((( )...

Thank you very much guys. I am appreciated...

OK I will upload the source files again but would you like me to upload them from RC3 Install or RC3 Upgrade?

And one another thing just hit me now. I never tried to upgrade my actual site... What I did is Installed a new forum with in localhost and sub domain with SMF 1.0.8 and connect it to my backup DB then I have tried to upgrade either install 1.1.RC3. I could not risk to install it straight away to my forum. Is this might be the actual problem?

I will be really angry to myself if it is because of this. I have no right to waste your time...

You need to run upgrade.php since the upgrade will make all the necessary changes.  Also need to upload the upgrade files not install.

Well I did. And I did upgrade the forum. But afterwards everything fall apart. When I try to change forum language It gave me "Unindetifed index error on Admin.php". Then I had it back to english again. But this time I was not able to acces to some of my boards because it gave me another error like "bg.ban_group does not exist" and it was infront of me I was looking at the damn ban group on phpMyadmin...

May be I should try it on my actual forum huh. What you say?

Well this is new.

I had this one first time : D. Ok Since my server has got an Unzip option what I do is delete the all folder and unzip it in a second.

Well After I delete Themes, Source, Packages, Avatars folders and unzip the smf_1-1-rc3_upgrade.zip to top of everything I had the error upthere...

Then started the upgrade.php and it has given me this (I think this is 5th time I had this in last two days);

"The upgrader found some old or outdated files.

Please make certain you uploaded the new versions of all the files included in the package.

Click here to try again."

I do not know what to do...

OK guys I uploaded the files via CoreFTP Lite Edition (sorry not enough money for the Pro Edition : D)...

Still same error.

I think I have to do what I had to before... I will copy my forum one to one to this new subdomain. Then I will run the repair_settings.php. Then I will make sure every single thing is ruining proply...

After that I have an exact copy of my site (including mods, TP, and My Themes) I will upload SMF 1.1.RC3 upgrade and I will run it and I will be able to give you a step by step guide of "How can you mess a good site up in 5 Steps".. : DDD

A new years day release would be quite annoying because then I'd probably only have the day after to play.

Speaking of 1.1 Final...

Is there a roadmap for SMF development anywhere?  I considered PMing one of the SMF staff, but everyone has "DON'T PM/EMAIL ME FOR SUPPORT!" in their signature.

Having at least some general idea of when releases are planned and features planned for each would help those of us who of are a detail-oriented bent plan our businesses somewhat more logically.

Any information would be appreciated.

Hi Guys (and girls).

I have downloaded all my board to my local host. I have backup-ed my DB and import it to my local mysql server. Then I have run the repair_settings.php. Then I set my themes up and set the forum language to English. And when I finished I had exactly same version of my forum but offline.

All of this took my almost 2 days. (I have a really slow connection. Better than dial-up though but still slow)

After all this I have run the upgrade.php and in the process I had the error in the picture.

(http://img62.imageshack.us/img62/2770/smfprobya6.th.jpg) (http://img62.imageshack.us/my.php?image=smfprobya6.jpg)

What is this ban_group I do not know. I have tgssmf1_banned in my DB. By the way my prefix is "tgssmf1_" I do not think this is the problem so what is the problem?

Thanks for replies.

Hi!

I downloaded "smf_1-1-rc3_install.zip" and attempted to install it on my server.

1) I downloaded the zip file
2) Unzipped it
3) Uploaded it to my domain in a folder named SMF

At this point, the instructions say to run the "install.php" in the forum's root directory.  I couldn't find "install.php" anywhere.

Any ideas?  Thanks!

Your install.php file will be located where ever you have uploaded the files. For instance, if you uploaded it to a directory called forum then you would navigate to www.yourdomain.tld/forum/install.php

The forums root directory is the directory where you uploaded the forum. There isnt a folder called "root"

So http://your-domain-name-here.com/forum would be your forum's root directory.

You'll notice that I put quotations around the proper filenames.  I didn't put quotes around

Quoteforum's root directory

This indicates that my usage is not as a proper name.

Now, let's examine my 2nd post:
Quote from: Lionmane on November 02, 2006, 12:40:53 AM
That's what I meant by "forum's root directory".  It's not there.    :(

This time I did use quotes.  I guess this is the part that confused people.  However, if you'll notice the context I'm obviously quoting myself.

Conclusion:
Yes, I know the proper usage of the term root directory.

Hopefully, no one will criticize me for using the word "term" above. ;D

Now that that's (hopefully) clear:
I couldn't find the "install.php" file in the (oh no, here we go) forum's root directory.  The instructions say to delete it when you're done using it, so I imagine that whoever uploaded it deleted it first.

Hi - i am planning to install the latest version.

I have read some of the postings and can see that asking for "when will it be released" is a bad idea.
But..  What is the reason for it, not being released - are we waiting for tests done by a beta team or are we waiting for a fix of some bugs not announced ?

Bare with me.

Please someone explain to me why there are 2 seperate versions and what the differences are or where I can read up on this?

I want the best of what I can get with this forum, but I grabbed and installed the first, most up to date version that I saw. This was 1.0.9, now I am seeing that the RC is better? I just don't get all of this... help... please... someone  :-[

I thought from reading these forums that RC3 was pretty solid.  So, night before last I attempted to upgrade from YABBSE 1.5.5.  The upgrade took a lot time, but went OK.  After the upgrade I experienced all kinds of login problems.  It looked somewhat like a cookie problem, but both of my XP/IE6 computers had it and the privacy settings, etc. were correct, and I deleted all cookies.  The problems were more pronounced when I went into admin.  It kept saying I did not have rights to do this or that and lept popping-up a login screens.  Often, I would get a blank screen with dots partially across the top.  Hitting the back arrow would show me logged-in as guest.  Clicking home would then show me logged in my user account.  Themes were a problem.  No matter what I did, the default SMF theme would be presented to guests.  So, finally, after struggling for most of the night (more than eight hours), I restored the database, reverted back to YABBSE, drank a beer, and went to bed.  Larry

It initially came up with the default theme.  I went to admin and with some login problems, was able to choose the converted theme.  It worked, but guests still got the default theme.  Thank you, but please don't spend anymore time on me.  I will not be trying RC3 again.  I may try 1.0.9.  One can always tell pioneers by the arrows in their backs.  My back hurts  :D.  Larry

So a less obvious issue that has cropped up is the loss of avatars and attachments.  The files are still in the directories, but some users in the smf_members had their "avatar" field erased, while some kept it.

The smf_attachments table still looks intact, and in admin mode I can view all attachments and avatars and the forum will gladly display the list.  If I attempt to VIEW any of them by clicking on the attachment file name, it gives me a "404 - Attachment Not Found" in raw text output (not formatted as HTML).

Signatures (and pictures part of sigs) still stuck around.

Any ideas of what to try? Other than this, RC3 is quite nice.

Thanks in advance,

Is this site running the new 1.1?  I like some of the additional features.

This site is running the Development Edition version, which will become the version after 1.1.

Thanks.  Then does 1.1 have the notification options the development addition has?

It will be released when its ready for its release, we all want the progress to speed up but if we are to rush it; it will end up in too many bugs which would give off a much slower level of progression which is what we don't want.

I've done a search but can't find anything.

Is there a changelog available yet to show what's changed from 1.1RC3 to 1.1 Final?

I assume as charter members have access to 1.1 Final that it is "Final"?

1.1 Final has been released. You can download and read the changelog. If the changes haven't been posted yet, they will likely be up sometime today.

Agreed, this is now out-of-date so it requires locking.
