Title: SMF 2.0.17 Released
Post by: Sesquipedalian on December 30, 2019, 07:57:44 PM
Dear Members,

Simple Machines has released a new patch to the 2.0.x line of SMF, bringing our latest release version to 2.0.17.

We consider this patch to be of crucial importance, as it includes an important fix for a critical bug that was introduced in SMF 2.0.16.

Please see the changelog (https://download.simplemachines.org/index.php?thanks;filename=smf_2-0-17_changelog.txt) for more information.

Since SMF 2.0.17 is essentially what 2.0.16 was intended to be and 2.0.16 was released only a few days ago, we are including a (slightly updated) version of the SMF 2.0.16 announcement for your convenience:

SMF 2.0.16 contained important security and bug fixes, as well as support for the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements. We recommend updating as soon as possible.

Notable changes in 2.0.16 & 2.0.17
Please see the changelog (https://download.simplemachines.org/index.php?thanks;filename=smf_2-0-16_changelog.txt) for more information.


IMPORTANT NOTES:

How to update to 2.0.17

If you are running version 2.0.16, you can update your forum to the latest version by using the package manager. You should see the update 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 patch, please run the scheduled task "Fetch Simple Machines files" from the Scheduled Tasks page (Admin > Maintenance > Scheduled Tasks).

If you are still running version 2.0.15, you can first patch to 2.0.16 and then patch to 2.0.17 immediately afterwards. We apologise for the inconvenience.

If you use an older version of SMF, you can upgrade directly to 2.0.17 from whichever version you are currently using by using the "Large Upgrade" package from the Download (https://download.simplemachines.org) 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 Large Upgrade.

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

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


Language packages for 2.0.16/2.0.17 - Translators wanted!

Adding GDPR support required changes to several of SMF's language files in 2.0.16 (and higher). Updates to SMF's supported language packages will become available as the translations of those changes are completed.

If you can help translate these changes into your language, we would love to hear from you! (https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=552016.0)


Finally, as always, 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 (https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?board=147.0).

Thank you for using SMF!

Regards,
Simple Machines

Thanks!

Not a support topic, just an observation:

The administration control centre still shows 2.0.16 as the latest version so it seems to think that my forum needs updating even though I have just updated to 2.0.17.

2.0.17 was also not shown in the packages area as an available update in the way these patches usually are.

2.0.15 > 2.0.16 > 2.0.17 painless. Thanks Team.   :)


Wantsome : I noticed that too but it did correct itself.  2.0.17 package shows toward bottom of installed packages list.

It does, we've been so busy getting the patch available to everyone fast that we haven't had the time to install it yet. :)
(In the official manner anyway, we do have the patch running.)

2 releases in quick succession, hopefully this means that 2.1 final will be released in  2020 :D

IMPORTANT NOTES:

All users, including the admin, will need to log in again after 2.0.16 has been installed. The admin can then proceed to install 2.0.17.
Can you explain what this line means? I mean ok, everyone is logged out and have to log in once again, but this gives impression to not proceed with 2.0.17 before all users log in while is 2.0.16. Just pointing on this since it can be confusing.

there are changes to how cookies work, so when you install 2.0.16 it will log you out.

That just means that once the admin logs in, the admin can proceed to install 2.0.17. I'll edit the announcement to remove any confusion.

I think we should hold back on releasing new versions before 2050. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

For the older members, that means 10 minutes to 9.

Hello
I've installed 2.0.16 and after that - 2.0.17 and now nothing is shown on the home page - literally. What to do?

1- this topic is not for support. Please open your own support topic in the 2.0 support section.
2- when you do so, provide data...   e.g. your URL
3- look at your SERVER error logs.
4- confirm if there were any errors displayed during the "pre-test" part of the patch installation.
