g1.19 Released

(Later than I’d hoped, which I regret.)

Available as ever in deanload

Remember that if you’re upgrading from previous versions, you’ll need to run /textpattern/_update.php in a browser, or all hell will break loose.

Some changes:

  • Added ‘version’ field to txp_prefs
  • Added <txp:article_id /> tag to output the current article id
  • Added <txp:article_image /> tag
  • Added <txp:comments_count /> tag
  • Added <txp:meta_keywords /> and <txp:meta_author /> tags for outputting metadata in the page <head>
  • Added break="li" and wraptag="ul" option for recent_comments
  • Added 10 custom fields for articles
  • After moving off the front page when paging through articles, article dates now use the archived date format
  • An URL-only title, if created, is now added to an articles permanent link
  • Closed up a nasty but difficult-to-exploit security hole involving variables passed by GET (thanks to Sencer for finding this)
  • Comment previews are now shown inline with the article to which they are attached
  • Extended the time offset options in prefs to cover from -23 to +24 hours
  • Link urls will now accept any schema (ftp, https, mailto, etc)
  • Pinging textpattern.com when an article is published is now an admin_config option
  • Plugins are now processed using a method that requires no file inclusion, so they should work even in PHP safe_mode
  • The plugin list now displays plugin versions
  • Upgrading a plugin now works as expected

Also, it’s GPL.

I realise the new unwritten rule in software development is to Promise Nothing and only announce what’s available when it is actually, you know, available, but I do want to point out some useful information about Txp’s future development:

  1. I’m actively soliciting patches and input from developers interested in Txp’s future
  2. It’s moving to a Subversion repository, and incremental builds will be posted
  3. A Trac issue tracker and wiki will be open shortly

Re: g1.19 Released

Hoo-ya! (w/ apologies to the “other” Dean).
I can’t wait to get home tonight.
Everybody wangchung tonight.
I’ve been itching for the meta & custom fields.
Thank you Dean.

So, the new version makes structural changes to the database?
Could someone please provide easy-to-follow backup instructions?


I use this thing

Re: g1.19 Released

Mmm. Very easy upgrade. In fact, I hit _update.php a couple of times just to make sure. perhaps _update.php could say “Congrat. You are now running Textpattern version …”.

And the extra fields thing is great. even the basic interface is a great addition.

thanks!

( is it just me or does the 1.19 smallerbox style look a bit clunky on MSIE? … not just saying this to annoy dean, I promise. )

Re: g1.19 Released

Pinging textpattern.com when an article is published is now an admin_config option

say what? what is it pinging on textpattern.com? huh? does textpattern phone home? How do I disable this? It isnt in the web config screen.

Re: g1.19 Released

Its stated “an admin_config option” thus, the option can be found in /lib/admin_config.php in your txp directory…

Re: g1.19 Released

I’ve just upgraded, and get the following error on my main page:

Warning: Missing argument 4 for dopermlink() in /home/virtual/site6/fst/var/www/html/edge/textpattern/publish.php on line 512

I got it 10 times in fact, once for each permalink I have on the front page at the moment. :D

Re: g1.19 Released

Evilosity, are you using a plugin for article output?

If so, can you find line 512 of publish.php and change

function doPermlink($text, $plink, $Title, $url_title)

to

function doPermlink($text, $plink, $Title, $url_title='')

Re: g1.19 Released

Man, I love upgrading this software. One directory tree to upload (minus the config file, of course, which is less of an issue now that its default name is changd), one php file to run, and done.

Thanks, Dean!
