comperr, if the only issue is with the changelog, its fine to install it. I think the charter members patch had the wrong date, which is why theres a problem.

1.1.1 is the stable release. We had hoped 1.1 Final (1.1.0) would be stable, but it wasn't stable enough :(. There were some serious bugs that needed to be fixed.
To upgrade from 1.1 RC3, use the 'Large Upgrade' package, or use the Webinstaller :)

Hi Guys I have a serious question regarding the "stable" version.
looking back at the final how did these serious bugs get by inspection?, and how sure are we 1.1.1
is stable now.
Not being a complainer, we have a community dependant site. And I have to be extra careful as our site
helps ppl with food ,items etc. I saw some say it crashed their forum YIKES!!!
I need to know how sure is it this is safe??

Thanks
Cozmo

SMF 1.1.1 is safe to use, the crashes are usually because of their own human error or the fact they might have forgot to un-install modifications.

Well the IE problem really was rediculous. Seriously, it seems like half our updates are because of it :S
And then something like "Fixed bug in BBC parsing that could cause an error for people with special characters in their username on certain versions of PHP." is probably such an uncommon error that with all the alpha and beta testing that went on, noone happened to have the correct combination of special characters and PHP version until just now.
We can't be entirely sure that 1.1.1 is stable, but it's probably more stable than most other software thats out there.

Which is why I went with a clean install.


It doesnt matter if it crashes or the upgrades fail If you back up your stuff you are ok.

A clean install only takes like 30 mins.

we use non standard ports and advanced security on our webserver (of which I understand nothing by the way...)
please with the next upgrade to 1.1.2 (or something like that) just give a download file with all the changed files and/or a database update file and a readme
the webupdate etc does not work for me...

so I just uploaded all the files in the upgrade package and everything seems to work fine

-> the current readme (upgrade 1.1.1\smf_1-1-1_update\readme.html) asks to again run the upgrade.php, which, i believe, is not correct ?!

thanks4 your answer  ;)

They did posted a downloadable file if you want just the changed files.  The readme, well, it's the first post in this thread - upload via the Package Manager, install, and you're done.
If that's what you only want, you can avoid using the webupdate stuff.

Personally, I prefer doing it manually, helps in detecting stuff that our dear devs may missed, like the bit of code I've been asking for a week now and still have no answer.  A part in the upgrade file for Subs Post where a bit code must be replaced by a 'supposedly updated' code.  The old code and the 'supposedly new' code are just the same, so it's a little worry to me that a supposed fix related to subs post failed coz of that one part.  And I don't know why they don't want, or no one wants to answer that.  Think about it, you wouldn't put an instruction in the upgrade to replace a code with an old code if there were no changes right?  Unless it was added mistakenly, which still requires an answer so we can all breathe normally.

I know we're busy and all that, but hey, I'm pretty sure it's an easy yes or no answer than all the other queries here about upgrade "fatalities", which are 99% on the customer/user/admin part ;)  Know what I mean?

You did not patch any holes. We have had to get rid of SMF because of repeated hacks to our forums after multiple updates. Please, focus more on security and less on useless features.

If you're wondering, we had a website for our guild on World of Warcraft, and the person in question used an exploit in SMF to add a script to the forum's index.php where it would install a keylogger on computers running older versions of IE. This happened 4 times, after repeatedely changing all passwords with multiple (non-infected) computers. Fix your forums.

Merry Christmas Everyone.

My post was of a serious nature as mentioned we have a sensitive database.
If it crashed it wouldnt hurt me, but would affect ppl whom need food.

Is there isntruction at SMF to a fool proof clean install and yet saving the integrity of all the members posts etc?
Can't take the chance of any issues like I see listed..

Being an old Yabb board and brand new SMF and just getting this board running for the first time tonight, I really appreciate how easy it was to install the update.  Everything went perfectly!  I have a feeling I'm going to love this board. 

Thanks to all of you!

Ran the upgrade package last night, and it worked like the charm from one of the CVS builds. :P

Well done to the devs.

No errors on 1.1rc3 -> 1.1 -> 1.1.1 update

Thanks for upgrade.

Strange.

I also running 1.1.RC3 but I can"t update.   Just two days ago I wanted to upload 1.1.1update attached in first post in this topic, but That is what I get.  The package you are trying to download or install is either corrupt or not compatible with this version of SMF.

Have somebody idea where  error ca be?

It is for 1.1 only. If you're running 1.1 RC3 now, you'll have to use the Large Upgrade package from the download page.

Thanks Eld.  My admin center in top shows only upgrade to 1.1.1.   Maybe I should search better for upgrade.
