SMF 2.0.18 Released
« on: February 01, 2021, 04:50:07 PM »
Dear Members,

Simple Machines is pleased to announce a new patch for the 2.0.x line of SMF, which pushes the version number to 2.0.18.

The patch is focused on PHP 7.4 support as well as other issues encountered on previous versions such as
  • Policy acceptance missing id_member.
  • Addresses PHP parse errors when using SMF file cache
  • Avoids truncating Settings.php until after we have a lock on the file
  • Tighten up security checks, bring in sync with 2.1
  • Brought the UTF16-to-UTF8 logic over from 2.1
  • Always include email address when downloading user's own profile data
  • Fix missing info affecting logging for new registrations
  • Fixes bugs with multi-version jumps (via CLI) where settings weren't refreshed
  • Set utf8 as default going forward



Please see the changelog for more information.


If you are currently using version 2.0.17 you can perform the update using the package manager, once available you will see a notification update within your admin panel. please run the scheduled task "Fetch Simple Machines files" from the Scheduled Tasks page (Admin > Maintenance > Scheduled Tasks). Same logic applies if you want to update your forum from an older version, you can apply each patch successively until you reach out to 2.0.18


If you use an older version of SMF, you can upgrade directly to 2.0.18 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.



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

Thank you  :)
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with questions on astrophysics or theology.  You will get better and faster responses by asking homeless people in the street. Thank you.

And??   Did we indicate that ipv6 was or would be in 2.0.18?

Jeez.

You could rephrase that as "Minor version patches to 2.0.x are not intended to add major new features".
