b2evolution 1.9.3 released

March 12th, 2007 No comments

[b2evolution]

b2evolution version 1.9.3 has been released. The improvements in this version include:

* Fixed “basic antispam de-activates itself”.
* Fixed inclusion of sub-categories in item list (e.g. ?cat=1).
* Fixed handling of formats in pre-rendering content. You should delete the cache from the “Tools” menu after upgrading.
* Some more minor fixes.

This is not a critical release. If you haven’t noticed any bug in 1.9.2 yet, you probably don’t need to upgrade. However, upgrading from 1.9.2 to 1.9.3 is just a matter of replacing a couple of files.

For additional details, please refer to the release announcement.

EllisLab news

March 7th, 2007 No comments

[ExpressionEngine]

The pMachine company, makers of ExpressionEngine, has been rebranded as EllisLab.

Why the name change? pMachine was an outgrowth of our first, and at that time (six years ago), only product. Both our company and software were pMachine. A couple years later we released ExpressionEngine, which addressed some serious limitations of pMachine. EE essentially made pM (the software) obsolete. So when we set out to define our 2007 goals we decided it was time to move ExpressionEngine to its own site.

Actually four new websites: EllisLab, ExpressionEngine, Engine Hosting, and CodeIgniter have been launched and, yes, they all run from a single installation of ExpressionEngine.

For additional details, please refer to the EllisLab new websites announcement.

Long story short: If you downloaded WordPress 2.1.1 within the past 3-4 days, your files may include a security exploit that was added by a cracker, and you should upgrade all of your files to 2.1.2 immediately.

Serendipity 1.1.2

March 1st, 2007 No comments

[Serendipity]

Because of an invalid category ID, Serendipity tries to show entries for that category, but the resulting SQL string contains an empty statement which makes the MySQL parser fail, and report the error on-screen.

Even though we consider this issue to be fairly low-impact, Serendipity 1.1.2 has been released because of this, mainly to assure the public that we have addressed the issue. It is not critical that you upgrade to that release. If you do, it is sufficient to update the include/functions_entries.inc.php file.

For further details, please refer to the release announcement.
