R4.3 Release Notes

R4.3

(20.03.2011) Revision:1816 (Change Log)



The 4.3 release serves two purposes. The first is to release a number of bug fixes to the wacko community and the second is to say wacko is officially alive again. Primarily we are just taking care of all the bugs in the bugtracker whilst implementing user requested extra features along the way. Here's a brief summary of the changes we've made in 4.3:


Notable in this release:

  • Fixed a number of localisation issues
  • complete PHP5.2 compatibility (was only one line of code that killed it)
  • Implemented PHP PDO database support
  • Added XML sitemap support
  • Is now secure by default
    • ACL settings
    • Captcha
    • Made it a bit more secure by hiding certain things from non logged in users or in some cases just certain users/groups
  • Updated installer although it still needs work
  • more XHTML compliance

milestones

  • rc1 – 12.09.2008
  • final – 20.03.2011 (maintenance)
