ImpressCMS 1.3.3 Release Candidate Now Available

ImpressCMS 1.3.3 Release Candidate Now Available

ImpressCMS 1.3.3 Release Candidate can now be downloaded from our Development Releases page. Since the second beta, some more bugs were squashed, again thanks to the ongoing efforts of our testers and developers. This will be the most tested release ever, and we're very proud of that fact.

Content of this release


Here is the rundown of the changes since the 1.3.3 beta 2 package :


Changed


  • Max size for signatures removed (when using HTML enabled signatures) (m0nty)
  • Initial changes for PHP 5.4 compliance

Fixed


  • Module Preferences without Helptip (skenow)
  • Filtering with HTMLPurifier (m0nty, skenow, qm-b)
  • Smarty Resizer security enhancement (m0nty)
  • Signature continues to expand when full URI is added (m0nty)
  • Correcting the declaration of icms_db_criteria_Item::__construct() (skenow)

Attention: This is a Release Candidate!


A Release Candidate is not suitable for running a live website - use it for testing purposes only.


Feature-complete


This release is based on the latest source code, so all known critical and major bugs should be gone. This release should be feature-complete, no large refactoring parts remain.


Compatibility with ImpressCMS 1.2


ImpressCMS 1.3 introduced a major reshuffling of the core source code, but a large effort has been made to keep compatibility with ImpressCMS 1.2 and its modules. The debug messages will display deprecated messages for any old code still being used and also suggest the proper resolution for them.


Updated versions of old modules have been released to take advantage of the optimizations and restructuring started in 1.3. New modules have also been introduced based solely on ImpressCMS 1.3 to provide alternatives and also fill some previous gaps in functionality.


Verifying whether modules work correctly at this stage will enable the module maintainers to fix their code. In the absence of an active module maintainer, a new one could be found or a migration path to a maintained module could be developed. The forums are the appropriate place.


Module Testing


Please test your favorite modules for compatibility, and report on the result of those tests (either working AND non working) in the appropriate forum.


Downloading this release


As mentioned at the beginning, you can find the packages for this release on our Development Packages product page.

 Re: ImpressCMS 1.3.3 Release Candidate Now Available
I tried to update a 1.3.3 beta2 to 1.3.3 RC and failed. After updating the frontend refers to "mydomain.xx/modules/:/" and nothing happens. The Backend-dashbord (admin.php) is empty, but the links, like "preferences", works correct.

What happens with a fresh install of 1.3.3 RC? We've never intended the upgrades to work between development releases.
