Re: Feedback: Textpattern CMS 4.8.8 beta released

For those of you familiar with the demo sites, I’ve set up the beta here:

beta-demo.textpattern.co

Grab a user login from here as usual, and go wild.

(I have not updated the demo sites landing page since whoever wrote the awful page + form code for it many years ago (me) didn’t comment it very well and I have to unpick it to work out wtf is happening. Ahem. Whoops.)

Awesome stuff, yay.

I have a small client site going live today so the beta will be going on their server this afternoon in preparation for launch.

I’m doing the same – feels like positive progress!

1x bonus point to the person who spots the teensy mistake I made…not a big deal but when you see it…ugh.

Re: Feedback: Textpattern CMS 4.8.8 beta released

quick silly question: does a 4.8.8dev build downloaded 2~3 days before the 4.8.8 beta build also include a fix for the security issue mentioned in the release notes ? Asking as I have those on a couple of live sites and I am not really in the mood to do the update dance.

(I guess yes, a fix or workaround is included, based on what code was modified after my download according to github)
