With Ilia, FUDforum's main developer's help, I'm proud to announce the FUDforum 2.8.0 preview release. This release incorporates a large number of changes in terms of new features as well as bug fixes.

Please download and install the software on your test systems to help us find any remaining bugs and to translate messages into your local languages (no new features will be considered at this stage).

Enhancements:

  1. The installer was restyled;
  2. The admin control panel was restyled;
  3. All themes were changes to XHTML;
  4. All messages were converted to the UTF-8 encoding;
  5. Posts in the flat message view can now be minimize and maximize;
  6. Ability to stop people from posting links till they have a certain number of posts;
  7. Convert Javascript framework used from YUI to jQuery;
  8. Add grippie for easy textarea resizing;
  9. Convert checkbox select all/none to JavaScript; and
  10. A new checkbox for moderators to select all topics for bulk move or delete.

Bug Fixes:

  1. Fix column 'subject' cannot be null while loading USENET posts;
  2. Allow account moderators to edit their own accounts;
  3. Fix private message pager with PATH_INFO URLs;
  4. Open search fix;
  5. Removed duplicate slash;
  6. Fixed a possible user deletion bug;
  7. Fixed topic description loss on edit;
  8. Removed maxlength limitation of password validation length;
  9. Remove a leading <br> from quote tag;
  10. Some RDF feed tweaks and fixes for 't' mode;
  11. Fixed a buggy simple XML output of topic listing;
  12. Fixed a bug in Chinese translation;
  13. PHP bug work-around;
  14. Fixed marking read on topic pager;
  15. Added word chars to filter out;
  16. Added missing size checks for URL avatars;
  17. Fixed loss of topic description on topic move;
  18. Fixed topic description rendering;
  19. Added display of topic description at the top of message display for a topic;
  20. Fixed a possible PostgreSQL query error;
  21. Added missing PATH_INFO template reference; and
  22. Fix a bug with PostgreSQL un-install script.

Localization:

  • New Afrikaans language translation available;
  • The Chinese translation was updated.
  • The non-UTF8 Russian translations were removed (the UTF8 version is still available).


Enjoy!

Frank

Hello,

I think that the correction to file attachments problems when using PostgreSQL hasn't been corrected in this release (I just checked browsing the source, I haven't installed the 2.8RC1).
The problem is detailed on http://fudforum.org/forum/index.php?t=msg&th=9928&start=0& adding ::text like here:

$cc = __FUD_SQL_CONCAT__.'('.__FUD_SQL_CONCAT__."('".$FILE_STORE."', id), '.atch')";

to

$cc = __FUD_SQL_CONCAT__.'('.__FUD_SQL_CONCAT__."('".$FILE_STORE."', id::text), '.atch')";


Thanks,
Luc

Unfortunately this patch breaks MySQL and can thus not be applied. See details at http://fudforum.org/forum/index.php?t=msg&th=118129

I am VERY excited to see a new FUDforum release! I am curious to hear some feedback from people who have upgraded from 2.7.7 to make sure there weren't any issues. These upgrades seem pretty substantial.

Once again, I'm very excited that someone has taken up FUDforum and gotten back to work on it. I have two relatively large forums (395k posts, 8100 users and 146k posts, 8300 users) I run on it so I am always cautious with upgrades.

Since this is the download topic, I guess I'll post this here.
Anyway, when I try to download any of the versions of this software, all I download is the installer and not the actual software. Sad What should I download?

You only need one file to install FUDforum on your system. All the required files are contained within it.

But in the folder, the only files were Copying, Install, Unistall, Credits, and readMe. That was the correct download right?

Yes, install.php is like a self extracting archive that contains all the required files within itself.

Shocked I see now. OK, I wish I knew that.
Thanks Smile
