phpBB 3.2.1 Release - Please Update

Sun, 16 Jul 2017 19:01:50 +0000

Greetings everyone,

We are pleased to announce the release of phpBB 3.2.1 "War for the Planet of the Berties". This version is a maintenance & security release of the 3.2.x branch which fixes three security issues, as well as adding more hardening and fixes for various bugs reported in previous versions.

A server-side request forgery (SSRF) exploit was discovered in the remote avatar functionality which could be used to perform service discovery on internal and external networks as well as retrieve images which are usually restricted to local access (thanks to SEC Consult for the report). Additionally, a cross-site scripting vulnerability via version check files was discovered internally (thanks Derk Ruitenbeek). This could have been used to trick users into clicking on javascript: links. The third fixed issue concerned potential high load scenarios that could be caused by specially crafted search queries while using MySQL fulltext search.

The bugfixes address issues with migration dependencies preventing updates from phpBB 3.0.6 or older, multiple issues with the new text formatter, make the FTP update method functional again, as well as issues with updating from earlier versions using PostgreSQL. Notable changes include new, higher resolution images for the imageset icons, pagination for IP tables and post info, and added search indexing for topics after splitting a topic. The version check now also supports branches which will result in more helpful information about new versions on other branches.

The full list of changes is available in the changelog file within the docs folder contained in the release package. You can find the key highlights of this release on the wiki at https://wiki.phpbb.com/Release_Highlights/3.2.1 and a list of all issues fixed on our tracker at https://tracker.phpbb.com/issues/?filter=14100

The packages can be downloaded from our downloads page.

The development team thanks everyone who contributed code to this release: javiexin, rxu, Rubén Calvo, nomind60s, David Colón, Jakub Senko, hanakin, Matt Friedman, JoshyPHP, Louis7777, kasimi, Vinny, Erwan Nader, Richard McGirr, hubaishan, Daniel Mota, Jim Mossing Holsteyn, Rishabh04-02, Saeed Hubaishan, david63, lavigor, Agris, Christian Schnegelberger, Daniel Sinn, Mukesh Kumar Kharita, TarantinoMariachi, lr94, tas2580, upstrocker

phpBB 3.1.11 Release - Please Update

Sun, 16 Jul 2017 15:04:32 +0000

Greetings everyone,

We are pleased to announce the release of phpBB 3.1.11 "Bertie's Cassini hitchhike". This version is a maintenance & security release of the 3.1.x branch which fixes three security issues, as well as adding more hardening and fixes for various bugs reported in previous versions.
A server-side request forgery (SSRF) exploit was discovered in the remote avatar functionality which could be used to perform service discovery on internal and external networks as well as retrieve images which are usually restricted to local access (thanks to SEC Consult for the report). Additionally, a cross-site scripting vulnerability via version check files was discovered internally (thanks Derk Ruitenbeek). This could have been used to trick users into clicking on javascript: links. The third fixed issue concerned potential high load scenarios that could be caused by specially crafted search queries while using MySQL fulltext search.
Please note that this is the last maintenance release for phpBB 3.1 as it has now reached end of maintenance (EOM). It will continue to receive security updates until December 2017.

The bugfixes address issues with duplicate entries for migrations that could result in extensions not properly installing or uninstalling, an invalid definition in an SQL query that prevents ordering of PMs, as well as issues with updating from earlier versions using PostgreSQL.
Notable changes are pagination for IP tables and post info and added search indexing for topics after splitting a topic. The version check now also supports branches which will result in more helpful information about new versions on other branches.

The full list of changes is available in the changelog file within the docs folder contained in the release package. You can find the key highlights of this release on the wiki at https://wiki.phpbb.com/Release_Highlights/3.1.11 and a list of all issues fixed on our tracker at https://tracker.phpbb.com/issues/?filter=14092

Today is a big day for the entire phpBB community and we hope that you're as excited as we are! With the help of over one hundred volunteers, we have improved and extended phpBB to provide the new and improved phpBB 3.2 Rhea.

The new phpBB 3.2 Rhea builds upon 3.1 Ascraeus, upgrading the experience for users, administrators, and developers. The new BBCode parser adds support for all the emojis you've been using on mobile devices, the new font awesome integration adds retina quality icons to prosilver, and the quoting feature has been enhanced. Together with Symfony 2.8, an improved integration of the twig template engine, and full support for both PHP 7.0 & 7.1, we have increased extensibility of phpBB 3.2 while reducing development time.

Board admins will apprecite the new installer, which enables easier updating using the browser or a command-line interface, as well as the newly added reCAPTCHA 2.0 to thwart would-be spammers at the gate.

Check out further highlights of the new version on our Rhea Launch Page or a more detailed breakdown on our Features Page. As always, phpBB 3.2 Rhea and update packages for previous versions are available in the downloads section.

The phpBB community has been working hard to get this release prepared and work on phpBB 3.3 Proteus is already underway!

phpBB 3.2.0-RC2 released

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 23:13:25 +0000

Greetings all,

We are pleased to announce the release of phpBB 3.2.0-RC2 "Bertie Reconnaissance Orbiter". This is the second release candidate of the upcoming phpBB 3.2.0 feature release and introduces major changes and new functionality.
Among the new features are the inclusion of VigLink as an extension in the phpBB package, full PHP 7.1 compatibility, as well as SVG emojis, and OAuth v1 support. You can read more about the inclusion of VigLink in our blog post phpBB to ship with VigLink extension.
The second release candidate also further improves timeout handling in the installer and while running database migrations, introduces several improvements to the new BBCode parser, and solves issues with email parsing that were present in the previous release candidate.
In addition to that, both the support for SQLite 2.8.x and the PHP MSSQL extension have been dropped as these are no longer supported in our minimum PHP version 5.4.0. Support for newer versions of those database types is available through SQLite 3 and MSSQL ODBC or MSSQL native respectively.

The full changelog is available in the changelog file within the docs folder contained in the release package.

Greetings everyone,

We are pleased to announce the release of phpBB 3.1.10 "Bertie's Indian summer". This version is a maintenance & security release of the 3.1.x branch which fixes one trivial security issue and various smaller bugs. The security issue only affects users using no longer supported versions of browsers as well as improperly setup webservers (thanks to Lukas Reschke of Nextcloud for reporting this).
The bugfixes address the Q&A captcha logging errors when it was solved, fatal errors when upgrading from 3.0.x in certain cases, and database transactions not being rolled back with incorrect notification settings. Other changes include an improved migrator and hardened form checking in the Admin Control Panel.
It also adds support for UI tests in extensions and now checks the version constant against the config version to notify users of incomplete updates.
