Textpattern CMS 4.0.3 released

I am proud to announce the immediate availability of Textpattern 4.0.3. You can get it always on the download page.

Updates should be seamless and are recommended as soon as possible. People that are updating from previous versions probably want to add a few CSS rules as explained in the FAQ entry on comment error messages.

Most of the changes relate to handling comments (see full changelog below) and we now have a very easy way available for plugin developers to write anti-spam plugins ( Interested developers are encouraged to join the mailing-lists to discuss how to do this ). As a first plugin for production use, here is a Captcha-Plugin. More plugins will become available in the following weeks.

More reading:
FAQ-Entries specific to 4.0.3
Textbook: Combat Comment Spam (this page is still in it’s infancy)

Changes since 4.0.2:

  • fixed 2 potential security holes (detected in internal code review). Update is recommended.
  • Textile i18n improvements
  • Add a bulk Ban function for comments
  • Automatically hide comments when banning an IP
  • Fix comments “page by”
  • Fix double translated linebreaks in comments.
  • Fix nofollow in comments
  • Fix preview without textile in certain edge cases
  • Separate hidden comments into unmoderated and spam (reload your admin-side stylesheet, if you can’t see a difference)
  • Add bulk changing of comment status (visible, moderated, spam)
  • Better error-handling in comments-form when critical fields are missing New tag: <txp:comments_error /> (and conditional <txp:if_comments_error >) Style-able error-message and form-elements via CSS (class=comments_warn).
  • Plugin-Authors: Add callbacks for future spam-plugins [comment.save, comment.form]
  • Plugin-Authors: Add getComment() and comment_evaluator for future spam-plugins
  • Plugin-Authors: Allow (optionally, transparently) for installing compressed plugins.
  • Plugin-Authors: Add window events using addEvent, to allow multiple events loading at window.onload, useful for admin side plugins.
  • Improve mysql5-compatibility
  • Add comment edit link to notification emails
  • Make comment-time format customizable in tag (mary)
  • Add offset-attribute to file_download_list (mary)
  • Make older, newer and link_to_home work more consistently with other nav-tags (mary)
  • Fix mailto: links
  • Fix tag trace output for enclosing tags
  • Update comment_count after import
  • Add extra info to the tag trace (SQL queries, conditional tag results, page template and form names

Too late for Christmas (ehehehe), but just in time for a end/new-year’s present.

Re: Textpattern CMS 4.0.3 released

Well done and thank you everyone in the developer team.

Although you have a habit of releasing new versions always at times when I’m away from my production computer for several days ;-)

Re: Textpattern CMS 4.0.3 released

I normally grumble under my breath when an upgrade gets added to my To Do list, but you guys have made this one well worth the effort.

Now, let me find a hole in my holiday weekend…

Re: Textpattern CMS 4.0.3 released

The zip is version is really going to throw some people off. It looks as if an extra textpattern 4.03 folder got packaged within the other. You might want to change that out.

;)

EDIT: just checked the gzip and it’s fine. It’s just the zip version.
