YAF v1.9.1.8 FINAL ( Dated 3/27/2008 )

Yet Another Release! Finally!

Change Log from v1.9.1.7:

  • Updated database version -- fixes a few DB errors.
  • Fixed issue with suspension errors
  • Fixed issue with Url Referrer.
  • Fixed issue related to Date Time errors on the front page with moderated posts.
  • Fixed issue related to moderated posts and URLRewriter.
  • Fixed issue editing permissions on forums with some access masks.
  • Fixed security issue with members page.
  • Search handles Unicode better.
  • Fixed issue with locked forum handling.
  • Fixed issue with users being able to delete other's PMs.
  • Fixed javascript issues with IE7 and smilies inserting.
  • Fixed issue with the pager.
  • Lots of other misc bug fixes.

    Change Log from v1.9.1.6:

  • Adapted proper SQL connection handling from v1.9.3. The speed increases are noticable.
  • Minor SQL changes for speed. Not enough to warrant a DB upgrade.
  • Added caching to the forum.ascx page. Short timeouts -- but should save a few requests.
  • Fixed issue with the BBCode editor and smileys being inserted at the end.

    Change Log from v1.9.1.5:

  • Fixed random failure with URL Rewriting null references.
  • Fixed HTML injection security problem.
  • Just to make this release more interesting: Added feature from v1.9.3: Watch topic and attach files from "New Topic" post.

    Change Log from v1.9.1.2:

  • Fixed issue with case-sensitive DB.
  • Fixed issue when deleting a board.
  • Fixed bug associated with CanQuotePostCheck in PostMessage (null reference)
  • Modified installation text to say modify "yafnet.config" instead of "web.config" for connection string.
  • URLRewriter now longer points to /yaf_forum.aspx. It will point to "/" instead. Better for SEO.
  • Modified the Active Discussion code so that it's compatible with .NET v3.5. (Switched to using PlaceHolders.)
  • Modified the look & feel of Active Discussions.
  • Fixed issue with FlatEarth theme javascript errors.
  • Updated french.xml language.
  • Updated turkish.xml lanuage.
  • Url Rewriting is DISABLED by default on this release. Given some of the hassle and the fact that quite a few people don't care about SEO. For advanced users, just enable it (instructions in install.txt).

    Change Log from v1.9.1.1:

  • Fixed issue with login redirect not working correctly.
  • Fixed bug with "lastposts"
  • Fixed issue with URLBuilderRewrite on moderated pages.
  • Added indexes to the DB for speed.
  • Added "YafHead" feature so that style sheets can be written directly to the page head.
  • Fixed a DB issue when deleting a user that was still in the yaf_Active table.

    Change Log from v1.9.1.0:

  • Fixed security exploits involving usernames throughout the forum.
  • Added Unicode support for e-mails in other languages.
  • Removed the default <machineKey> from the default.config files.
  • Updated UrlRewriter.config to fix and issue with info section.

    If you are upgrading from v1.9.x.x -- the database has changed! You will need to upgrade your database using the following after installing by visiting this YAF URL: /install/default.aspx


    After installation and setup it's suggested that you remove or rename your /install/ directory for security reasons. (This issue is fixed in future versions.)

    REQUIRED FOR UPGRADE FROM v1.9.0: Merge changes from the new default.config with your web.config and be sure to copy URLRewriter.config and yafnet.config to your root directory.

    This release does not implement .NET v2.0 membership & roles. v1.9.3 BETA is just around the corner! So you might want to wait to upgrade if you really want membership & roles.

    BIN: Includes the compiled forum and forum page files without the source.
    SRC: Includes the compiled forum and forum page files with full source.
    DNN: Includes the compiled forum and forum page files with DNN v4.x support module and definition.

    With this version you still need Visual Studio 2005 with Web Application Project to compile the application.

    That will change in future versions of YAF.
    Good job.Thanks

    Very soon here. I'm working on the upgrade procedure. Once I can get *this* forum on v1.9.3 -- I'll release beta.
    If you're wondering about v1.9.1.7 running here -- it's a "speed update" version of YAF. Basically it adds proper DB connection handling (which I wrote in v1.9.3) to YAF v1.9.1 and adds front page caching (only 4 queries on forum.ascx).

    The reason? One of my clients is having issues with YAF performance. You might notice this forum is faster.

    If anyone is interested... I can release. But I'm really trying to focus my energy on getting v1.9.3 done so that I can release that.
    The performance improvement is very sensible here. Would you release it? It is good for high load forums.
