Zenphoto 1.4.3

  • General

    • We have closed a security hole having to do with changed behavior in a library we did use. Special thanks to JPCERT Coordination Center and the Information-technology Promotion Agency (IPA) for bringing this to our attention.
    • If Zenphoto thinks it needs to run Setup again but the files are not present it will now tell you why. The reasons are also divided into critical--Setup must be run to procede, and cautionary--Setup should be run at your earliest convenience, but the site will continue to function. Only users with ADMIN rights will see the warning notice. [sbillard]
    • Backup compression will now be applied to the database row (instead of each individual field). This makes for smaller backups when compression is used. Old field-compressed backups are still supported in restore. However, compressed backups created by the 1.4.3 Backup process CANNOT be restored by prior versions of Zenphoto. Use instead uncompressed backups. [sbillard]

Zenphoto 1.4.3 postponed to July 1st

Originally we planned to release 1.4.3 on June 15th but sadly some bugs were discovered. Although they should be fixed already we prefer to postpone the release to do some more testing. Better this than a bug fix release a few days later. Additionally some "real life" is stealing some time currently so we cannot do this earlier.

We scheduled 1.4.3 for July 1st now. We hope you understand. And you can help by testing the 1.4.3 beta (trunk nightly build).

Site updates 6/12: 3rd party themes and some articles removed

We have cleaned up our site a little:

Removed 3rd party themes

These themes are sadly no longer provided by their authors so their entries have been removed:

  • facedout
  • Silhouette
  • The life in blue
  • The life is socal
  • zpGalleriffic 1.0

Old articles about 3rd party tools removed

Before we switched our site to Zenphoto only we used Wordpress for the news and posted manually about new themes and such.

Since Zenphoto now thanks to Zenpage plugin's CombiNews mode lists all of the entries in the news section anyway they are doubled ”“ at least those still available ”“ and also clutter search results. So we removed them now.

Zenphoto.org running 1.4.3 beta

We like to announce that our own site is now running the 1.4.3 beta. The beta is available for download from the nightly build "trunk" files. If you decide to try the Beta we recommend you check the updates periodically for bug fixes discovered during this trial period. As a reminder, the release is scheduled for June 1st June 15 July 1st (release has been delayed to allow more beta testing).

The rss links for the site have changed on our site as announced a while ago. They should be backward compatible to the 1.4.2 ones but older forms will not work. Best you re-subscribe right now since even these new redirection will be removed in the future.

Piwik

This module helps you to keep track of your Zenphoto visitors through the Piwik platform. It places the piwik JavaScript tag at the bottom of your webpages using the theme_body_close filter. If you do not want particular pages to be tracked you should pass an array containing "piwik_tag" as the excludeparameter to the theme page body close filter application. e.g.

zp_apply_filter('theme_body_close',array("piwik_tag"));

Please visit the Piwik site for the piwik software and installation instructions.

This plugin needs volunteers for testing and may become official later

Sponsors program renamed to "Hosting"

Early April this year we announced the sponsors program to allow limited advertisement on our site. It turned out that the only serious enquiries were form hosting companies and most of them wished it to be named "Hosting" so we decided to rename it.

The top right menu button is now named "Hosting". Note that the links now changed as well.
