Zenphoto 1.0.2 beta release 08 April 2006
I’m pleased to announce the release of zenphoto 1.0.2 beta! This is an important security release, so everyone using zenphoto should upgrade as soon as possible. Head over to zenphoto.org for the download and changelog.
The major changes in this release include:
- Security fixes and improvements
- Rework of the image serving model–now images are redirected straight from cache (to let apache deal with them) rather than being served through PHP. This should eliminate complaints from certain hosts about CPU cycles, and generally makes everything much faster. Images are still created and returned through the URL as before.
- Path bugs are fixed, please let us know if you encounter any problems. However, if you do need to override the paths manually, there’s now a place at the bottom of config.php for it.
- Root installs now work (but are limited to one access path when using mod_rewrite, eg: you can’t access the same gallery from trisweb.com/photos and photos.trisweb.com).
So there are some good security fixes (go upgrade now if you haven’t yet), and lots of improvements. This should be a very stable and generally good release. Enjoy!
