Elgg 1.7.1 released, Security updates to 1.5 and 1.6
Elgg 1.7.1 has been released! This version has many improvements to 1.7 including:
A full list of changes is available in the CHANGES.txt and ChangeLog files. We recommend everyone upgrade to 1.7.1.
- Speed improvements for large and active sites.
- UTF8 migration bugfixes for servers experiencing corrupt strings after migration.
- Pagination bugs fixed in core and plugins.
- Search enhancements for group and members plugins..
- Legacy API backward compatibility improvements.
- Widget UI improvements.
- Security enhancement for IE users.
Since not all users have migrated to 1.7 yet, the security enhancements have been backported to 1.5 and 1.6.
Elgg 1.5 contains a serious security exploit that is fixed by Elgg 1.5.1 (and has been fixed in 1.6 for 8 months). Any user still using Elgg 1.5 is encouraged to upgrade to Elgg 1.7.1 immediately if possible, and Elgg 1.5.1 if not. Elgg 1.5.1 is the last release that will be made in the Elgg 1.5 branch, which has now officially reached its end of life. To ensure the continued security of their sites, all 1.5 users should upgrade to the latest version of Elgg as soon as possible.
Elgg 1.6 and 1.7 have a less serious security exploit that affects certain IE users. Users of 1.6 and 1.7 are encouraged to upgrade to the latest version of their branch. Elgg 1.6 will continue to be maintained for security issues until 1.8 is released. A full policy of Elgg version support and EOL will be posted shortly.
