This is a maintenance release to fix reported issues and add refinement to existing features. In addition to bug fixes and performance improvements, it includes following enhancements:

New Features:

Activity Stream enhancements:

  • The filter dropdowns now have an "Apply" button for better usability (previously you had to click outside the dropdown).
  • The "Expanded/Collapsed" toggles are now clearer.
  • Hitting back from a clicked item in any activity stream now remembers your position and loaded results.

Other enhancements and improvements:

  • The way dates are formatted can now be customised by language strings. For example, if you want to change the date format to "DD-MM-YYYY" that is now possible. With this change, the new default is US-style ("March 4, 1992") rather than the previous European-style ("4 March 1992").
  • Advertisements no longer have padding which makes them easier to position in other areas such as headers.
  • When comparing revisions of articles in Pages databases, a new browser-based diff tool is used which is more user-friendly and moves the computation from the server to the user's browser for greater performance.
  • Better indication of files pending approval in Downloads.
  • The version number for themes now displays in the AdminCP list.

Technical features:

  • If you are using the utf8 rather than utf8mb4 character set (which will mean you can't post Emoji) there is a new tool in the AdminCP to upgrade to utf8mb4.
  • System logs have been rewritten to use the database for logging where possible with a more user-friendly interface in the AdminCP.
  • Downloading files from Amazon S3 has been changed to redirect the user to a temporary download URL rather than serve the file through your server for significantly improved performance and reliability, especially with large files.
  • If it is available on the server, ImageMagick will now be used rather than GD by default. ImageMagick also has a new setting to control JPG quality.
  • APC User Cache is now supported in addition to APC.

 

Warning

This release does not support PHP 5.4 as it is end of life and no longer supported by PHP. If you are running PHP 5.4 do not upgrade and ask your web host to update to a supported version of PHP.
