PolarBlog V1.5.2 (Groundhog) Released

PolarBlog V1.5.2 (Groundhog) has been released.  This release primarily addresses a potentially major database corruption problem related to entry comments.  Additional fixes have also been implemented…

  • Added new MAIL_SUBJECT_COMMENT and MAIL_SUBJECT_REPLY language tags to better support non-english users needs.

Bug Fixes
  • Comment Deletion - A very serious bug exists in PolarBlog V1.5.0 & V1.5.1 whereby deleting a single comment will destroy all root level comments.  This in turn will cause an incorrect comment count to display, but no comments to be displayed.  This very serious problems was the result of array ID data being mishandled in the DB class.  This problem has been corrected by fixing the handling of nested arrays within the DB class when using SafeSQL.
  • Non-English versions were unable to delete users or topics since the V1.3.0 localization updates.  Anyone who is not using the standard polarblog.php file needs to merge these changes with their modified version.
  • Comments now respects USE_WORD_COUNT option added in V1.3.0.
  • The default COMMENT_DATE_FORMAT directive has been updated in config.php.dist.  This was required due to the localization changes implemented in V1.3.0.  This value is now also used to format the "Created" date when editing users.
  • The query problem with a SafeSQL error when attempting to add/edit users has been resolved.  The query is again running under SafeSQL.  As it turned out this was a misunderstanding on the usage of SafeSQL with data that conflicts with the parsing parameters.
  • The BASE_URL was missing from entry auto-links and has now been added.

Configuration Changes
  • None
See the PolarBlog Changes file for more information.  Please see the PolarBlog Upgrading documentation for information on upgrading your installation.

Being that today is Groundhog Day, this release is being named "Groundhog".  Who knows, maybe all releases will now have names!
