Title: SMF 2.0.8 Released
Post by: Oldiesmann on June 18, 2014, 02:11:32 PM
Dear Members,

Simple Machines Forum has released a new patch to the 2.0.x line, bringing our latest release version to 2.0.8.

This patch focuses on fixing a few memory issues caused by some of the changes in 2.0.7, as well as fixing a crucial bug which caused the boards to appear in a seemingly random order for forums running on MySQL version 5.6 and above. It also fixes a rare bug that could cause a database error when invalid data is passed to the memberlist search form. Users experiencing white pages and similar issues caused by excessive memory usage by their forums should experience an improvement. As was the case with 2.0.7, this is a bug fix release, not a security release, however we urge you to update to 2.0.8 as soon as possible because of the performance benefits.

If you are running version 2.0.7, you can update your forum to version 2.0.8 by using the package manager. As usual, you should see the upgrade notification in the admin panel and in the package manager, which will allow you to download and install the patch seamlessly.  If you don't see the notification about the update, please run the scheduled task "Fetch Simple Machines files".  You can also download the patch for 2.0.8 from the customize site (http://custom.simplemachines.org/upgrades/) by downloading the : smf_patch_2.0.8.zip patch file and then installing it from the package manager like any other mod package.

If you use older versions of SMF, you can upgrade by using the full upgrade archive for version 2.0.8 from the downloads (http://download.simplemachines.org/) page. Be aware that using this upgrade method will require you to reinstall your mods with ones designed for the 2.0.x line.

You can also view the change log for the latest release, as usual, on the downloads page (http://download.simplemachines.org/).

If you are having problems downloading the patch from the admin panel, you can download the package from the upgrade patches page (http://custom.simplemachines.org/upgrades/) and install it like a mod as instructed above.

If your system does not tell you that 2.0.8 is the current version, you can go to admin > maintenance > scheduled tasks and run the "fetch Simple Machines Files" task (or wait until it runs automatically on your system)

Please refer to the Online Manual for more details about:
* upgrading (http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Upgrading)
* patching (http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Patching)

Please do not use this topic for support requests.  You will receive a much quicker and better response by posting in the relevant support board!

Thank you for using SMF!

Regards,
Simple Machines Forum

There are 3 error during installation. As soon as you patch to version 2.0.7 one has noticed that this has not been tested enough.

By all means don't elaborate on what the errors are for you...  :-\
But please open a topic of your own so someone can help you.

It installed fine for me, good work team! :)
Title: Re: SMF 2.0.8 Released
Post by: Kindred on June 18, 2014, 03:04:37 PM
and why assume that the errors are our fault?  Perhaps, like any other mod, there is some of the target code for this patch which has been changed by something in your system alone...

But, please - open a support thread about it (remember, this thread is not for support questions)

he opened a support thread, as requested.
His issue was that he had installed the recalled version of 2.0.7 and had never installed the corrected version.
Once he did that, it worked correctly.

How do you know you have a recalled version of any update?

Downloaded and installed the current 2.0.8 today with no issues...  I am glad you guys are addressing memory issues.  Nice job!

Title: Re: SMF 2.0.8 Released
Post by: Kindred on June 18, 2014, 05:10:59 PM
Basically, anyone who downloaded 2.0.7 in the first 24 hours may have a recalled version...

If you get a bunch of errors in the 2.0.8 installation - then you either have the bad version of 2.0.7 or you have a bunch of mods that affected the target code.
Title: Re: SMF 2.0.8 Released
Post by: Arantor on June 18, 2014, 05:12:05 PM
See the linked thread. You'll see there's quite a difference between the codes in Subs-Editor.php, if you have the version with a static $ declaration, you have the updated one.

But if 2.0.8 installed cleanly, you had the updated one since 2.0.8 was built on the fixed version of 2.0.7.
Title: Re: SMF 2.0.8 Released
Post by: Dav999 on June 18, 2014, 05:23:15 PM
Thanks for the patch! :)

Though I would personally have made the memory_limit change in Class-Package.php non-"vital" since some people might have changed it already (and might need to because they get a blank page otherwise), now these people are left unable to update without manually editing all of the files because either the package manager doesn't work due to it being at 32M or upgrading fails due to the memory_limit code not being at 32M.
Title: Re: SMF 2.0.8 Released
Post by: Arantor on June 18, 2014, 05:32:18 PM
Or they can continue and ignore the error anyway, which is always an option.
Title: Re: SMF 2.0.8 Released
Post by: Kindred on June 18, 2014, 05:33:47 PM
Sorry, but we can't code for eventualities like that... that would happen with ANY manual edits or other mods that affected any of the target code. Patches have to assume that you are addressing a standard installation and any manual edits done by the user will have to be undone or redone to properly apply the patch.

Alternatively, you can identify the "failed code" as something that you edited manually, continue with the installation and then apply any needed changes manually...

Title: Re: SMF 2.0.8 Released
Post by: Arantor on June 18, 2014, 05:37:59 PM
He has got a point in that the edits could have been made ignorable, but it was a conscious choice not to do so, specifically so that anyone that did do it manually would presumably be aware of it.
Title: Re: SMF 2.0.8 Released
Post by: Dav999 on June 18, 2014, 05:41:43 PM
Right, I didn't think of the option to ignore errors for a moment, but I imagine several support topics about people asking what to do though, since the package manager says it's highly not recommended to continue if there are errors, even if they know that they changed it. Especially the people who are not good with computers. ;)
Title: Re: SMF 2.0.8 Released
Post by: butchs on June 18, 2014, 05:55:00 PM
Sounds like an option for 2.1?
:)
Title: Re: SMF 2.0.8 Released
Post by: Arantor on June 18, 2014, 06:03:25 PM
Oh dear god not more options. I tried to remove options in 2.1 because more != better.

The thing is, you already have an option. You're presented with the option to proceed anyway and manually make changes. Or the package author has an option to mark certain edits not done - as in fact the 2.0.8 package makes use of, owing to a glitch in how 2.0.7 was prepared in the first place.

For me, it has created problems. It was auto upgraded on my site by Installatron... and ever since the site disappeared and it just showed a blank page.

I tried to restore a back up of previous version auto created.. it runs till 4-6% slowly and then jumps straight to 100% saying restored.. but it shows only the header and rest of the site displays this error. "The database value you're trying to insert does not exist: cachedblocks"

I have no idea now how to restore my site onto the new version or the previous version without losing anything.

Yeah, that's because that's the OLD 2.0.7 code, not the CURRENT 2.0.7 code (because 2.0.7 was withdrawn and re-released after issues came to light with insufficient testing)

I updated using the prompt I got from Softaculous. I went to cPanel then Softaculous then the update script link. It seemed to have worked OK except for this Remember - This forum is in 'Maintenance Mode'.. Can't find how to get rid of it. Last upgrade using Softaculous was OK - no red 'Maintenance mode warning. There is a similar warning before logging in as well.

$search and there you go ;)

./Sources/Memberlist.php

$condition = allowedTo('moderate_forum') ? '' : ')';

Code: (Replace With) [Select]
$search_fields[] = 'email';

$condition = allowedTo('moderate_forum') ? '' : ')';

This will fix it, but hopefully the update package will be re-released with the fix. This error will only affect the memberlist view for moderators, but it will generate Undefined errors in your error log until fixed.

Why has sm.org not updated to 2.0.8 ???

The question has already been asked and answered in to detail, short version containing all you need to know: we're currently putting more priority to something else for user convenience; there are some server troubles *and* the upgrade has to be done at a scheduled time by two people instead of one due to a mistake on our side.

Rest assured, it will be updated.

Ah 2 things:

2) quoting me 3 times is much more spam than bothering being kind to link you what Core was talking about.

Granted point 1 might be true, then there is still no reason for you to drag the offtopic conversation on with (unkind) posts such as these. ;)
You're, at this point, more wrong than he is. Yes his question was in the wrong place, but no: there is no need for you to repeat that a few times.
If you have an issue with his posts, be the bigger man and just walk out and let the team deal with it; should it be required. :) Report it if you feel the team needs to look at it. Leave the moderation to us.

Now, shake hands and be friends; ok?


Please stay on topic from now on, everyone. :)
I thank you kindly in advance!!

Upgraded from 2.0.7 to 2.0.8, everything seems to work fine but when I perform a detailed version check in the admin panel the language file index.english.php is still reported as version 2.0.7 and it's suggested that 2.0.8 is available.

What went wrong?

It does look like the "serach_fields" error is in the SMF 2.0.8 Full Install .zip file I just downloaded too. I just wanted to confirm this if anyone needed to know.

The team is aware, and are discussing how to handle releasing an official fix for it. For the time being, it is an easy enough fix to do it yourself.

Why has sm.org not updated to 2.0.8 ???

The question has already been asked and answered in to detail, short version containing all you need to know: we're currently putting more priority to something else for user convenience; there are some server troubles *and* the upgrade has to be done at a scheduled time by two people instead of one due to a mistake on our side.

Rest assured, it will be updated.

Title: Re: SMF 2.0.8 Released
Post by: Oldiesmann on July 02, 2014, 04:42:33 PM
The email hasn't been sent out yet, so that's why you haven't gotten one.

As far as the favicon thing - it's hard to say why that happened. It's unlikely it was done through the forum though.

well...

first, you notice that this topic is not for support...
second, you don't upgrade from the maintenance screens

Post by: SKSLink.com on August 19, 2014, 03:29:34 PM
See the thread:
"If your system does not tell you that 2.0.8 is the current version, you can go to admin > maintenance > scheduled tasks and run the "fetch Simple Machines Files" task (or wait until it runs automatically on your system)
"
I can't find it in maintenance as it was in 2.0.6 which I upadated/upgraded to 2.0.7 last year.

running the task just updates the notice in the main admin and in the packag manager regarding the availability of the update

and this thread is STILL not for support

This has produced the biggest drop in the number of errors in the SMF log, though most are not be serious anyway.

Probably a few of them edit pieces of code that has been changed with the new upgrade. Strange though as I have 90 mods installed and none of them spammed my error log when I upgraded to 2.0.8 from 2.0.7 >_<

It's never good to have so many mods installed. They can cause numerous problems.

Yeah I know that's why I am safe :P I have seen you once saying this so... If you did that I shouldn't have problems with "only" 90 ;) and they don't overlap in any way, even though some of them needed extra tweaks to work together properly.

It's never good to have so many mods installed. They can cause numerous problems.
As long as they don't hit too much the server, the error log is clear, they are somehow "safe" and useful it's not a big deal ;) it took me like 2 months to do things properly and I still haven't finished, I'm waiting an important update by margarett since I have to install one of his mods (login/logout track) but I need the prune function. >_<

Is there a max mod install limit? Or is it unlimited? :p
Title: Re: SMF 2.0.8 Released
Post by: Arantor on August 21, 2014, 06:45:21 PM
There are limits internally but you'd never get to them without seriously doing something wrong with your life.

Even automating it would take a seriously insane amount of time. Let us assume you could install a mod and uninstall it a second later. At one per second, you'd be at it for decades.

The only limit is your sanity. How long you can suffer fixing problems and code edits.  Often mods that edit code already modified.
I try and keep mods to a minimum so they install and uninstall without manual edits.  Now about 30 and that seems ok.
