Dear Members,

Simple Machines has released a new patch to the 2.0.x line of SMF, bringing our latest release version to 2.0.16.

We consider this patch to be of crucial importance, as it includes 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

  • Support for privacy policy in addition to registration agreement
  • GDPR Compliance toggle in Core Features
       Enabling this configures multiple settings and new features to comply with the GDPR, including:

         
    • Requiring members to accept the current privacy policy in order to use the forum
    • Asking during registration whether the new member wants to receive announcements via email
    • Enabling token-based unsubscribe links in emails so members can unsubscribe without logging in
    • Allowing members to download a copy of their profile information
    • Adjusting the behaviour of a number of other features in minor ways as necessary
  • PHP 7.2 support
  • Improved security hashes for the image proxy
  • Improved security for the login cookie
  • Assorted other security improvements
  • Various improvements for both the installer and upgrader
Please see the changelog for more information.


IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • If you are using the GDPR Helper mod, you should follow these steps:

    • Back up your existing privacy policy text to a file somewhere
    • Update the GDPR Helper mod to its latest version
    • Uninstall the GDPR Helper mod
    • Install the SMF 2.0.16 patch

  • All users, including the admin, will need to log in again after 2.0.16 has been installed.

How to update to 2.0.16

If you are running version 2.0.15, 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 use older versions of SMF, you can upgrade directly to 2.0.15 from whichever version you are currently using by using the "Large Upgrade" package from the Download 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 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 and upgrading.


Language packages for 2.0.16 - Translators wanted!

Adding GDPR support required changes to several of SMF's language files in 2.0.16. 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!


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.

Thank you for using SMF!

Regards,
Simple Machines

Does 2.0.16 and php change affect existing mods for forum which is on 2.0.15? I mean should we expect problems with mods, or mods will work without side effects?

Some mods have been updated for php 7.x, some not, some don't need it.  Check your forum and server error logs.

Interesting that support for php 5.3 was restored.  I'm still seeing some GoDaddy servers running 5.3.

2.0.15 is obsolete now as 2.0.16 is the latest version in the 2.0.x branche.
EOL is used on branches. (1.0.x and 1.1.x are EOL. 2.0 and 2.1 are under active development and thus not EOL.)

Great job!!! I had been getting a ton of depreciated coding errors in my logs. I installed this via the admin, had only one minor file to fix and it works well! No more errors and themes and mods work as expected!

Excellent!  8)

Updated to 2.0.16 and set PHP to 7.2 - so far all working great. Thanks for this!

Will it work OK with PHP 7.3?

vbgamer45

I have it running fine on PHP 7.3 for my sites. PHP 7.4 is for sure a no go until more updates to SMF are made.

I'm glad to see another 2.0.x update out; I was honestly half-starting to wonder if it was ever going to happen.

It looks pretty good, but I am curious on one point regarding the GDPR implementation. At the risk of showing myself foolish, I'm not aware of any more thorough release notes than the ones posted at the beginning of the topic, so I thought I'd ask here (if I have missed something, then please, of course, point me in the right direction).

That said, when the notes say "...adjusting the behaviour of a number of other features in minor ways as necessary", could we have one or two specific examples of these kinds of changes? The wording here is vague, and I'd like to make sure I understand what constitutes a minor change before going all-in. If we're talking about things like "adds extra strings to language files", that's one thing; if it's, to use a hypothetical extreme, "turns off the option to restrict members from deleting their posts [because some country implementing GDPR thinks that's necessary]", that's something else. ;)

You mean 7.4 because anything PHP 5 is a security risk.

We found a critical bug regarding CPU usage when XML/RSS feeds are used in 2.0.16, and will be releasing a fix in the coming days. In the meantime, if you have already updated to 2.0.16, and notice your CPU time being eaten up, please disable the feature under Admin > Main > News and Newsletters > Settings > Enable XML/RSS news!

If you really depend on the feed feature, see this thread for a workaround.

Thank you for this release. :) I would like to know why during installation the installer randomizes the name of the table prefix. There is no more smf_

I believe this is part of the (cookie?) security changes, because the name is part of the info that is being hashed. This way it's less predictable.

Just wanted to say thank you to the SMF team for releasing this.  It's a lot of work and sometimes the only thing you hear is from people having problems.. But for those of us who use SMF every day, getting the software to work on PHP 7.2 is a major deal.  And we really appreciate the work to make it happen.

Adding GDPR support made 2.0.16 the largest and most complicated patch to the 2.0.x branch since it was first released. It took a while. C'est la vie. :)
