Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.6.1 released

Is it now full proof to upgrade to 4.6.1?

Depends on your setup. If you’re running in Live mode, you can do it without issue, the only “problems” you’ll likely spot are:

  • your version string in the database won’t be set correctly (you can fix it by hand if you like).
  • your Diagnostics will say there’s a new version available (because of the version issue: will go away if you edit the version string).
  • custom upgrade scripts may not run.

So, by all means do it, or wait a few days for 4.6.2 to fix these niggles.

In case it makes a difference for the 4.6.2 code: It remains here after editing the prefs string.

Thanks for the report. I’ll check the update notification code too, as it may need to change now we’ve refactored the update system.

Should we expect a beta, Stef?

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.6.1 released

@Uli: just wait :-) The update message will disappear within 24 hours. It only checks once a day maximum to avoid hammering the server. In the meantime it’ll keep reading the old message from cache.

Might be prudent this time. But, hey, it’s only a bug fix release… what could possibly go wrong ;-)

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.6.1 released

Having a hard time following the history and explanations here so far, but I think I got what Uli did.

Updated from 4.6 “stable” to 4.6.1 … everything seems fine except for a persistent diagnostic:

New Textpattern version 4.6.1 available for download.

But low detail output says:

Textpattern version: 4.6.1 (fb9a5683991545def3c704efce499c18)

which is also reported at bottom of admin panel.

I don’t care about the diagnostic as long as I do have 4.6.1 running.

You do. It’s just reported wrongly in the DB, which triggers the false update notification in the Diagnostics panel. There are no DB changes in this release, only file system changes, which is actually what has triggered the blip with the new updater code.

We’ve come up with a better system, Oleg’s on the case.
