    Apologies for the sudden downtime this was due to carry out essential patching of the Forum Software - xenForo to the latest release v1.5.11

    This release fixes a number of bugs and issues that were found since the release of 1.5.10. As this is a maintenance release, the vast majority of the focus was an increase in stability.

    Some of the changes in 1.5.11 include:
    • Workaround a Firefox bug where the Flash uploader shows as an opaque white box.
    • Support redirects in the image proxy and link title conversion process (while maintaining security).
    • Improve autolinking when there are special characters (brackets and similar) immediately after a URL.
    • Maintain ICC profiles when resizing with ImageMagick.
    • Add extra verification to quote alerts to ensure you only get an alert when the quote is attributed to you.
    • The "Facebook Open Graph Logo" style property is now simply "Open Graph Logo" to indicate that it's usage is more generic.
    • Fix an HTML error in editor dialogs.
    • Fix advanced background-repeat CSS being improperly converted to style property values.
    • Add multi-submission prevention to report commenting to prevent accidental double clicks.
    • Change the default user agent on outgoing HTTP requests to indicate XenForo and the triggering installation URL.
    • Adjust the HTTP response code on malformed proxy output requests to a general 400 error to indicate the client sent a bad request.
    • Ensure that when files are dragged into the rich text editor, they are uploaded one by one rather than simultaneously.
    • Ensure that leading whitespace is maintained when pasting preformatted text into the rich text editor.

    Apologies for the sudden downtime this was due to carry out essential patching of the Forum Software - xenForo to the latest release XenForo 1.5.12.

    This release fixes a number of bugs and issues that were found since the previous release. As this is a maintenance release, the vast majority of the focus was an increase in stability.

    However, by default, we have replaced the Flash-based attachment uploader with an HTML5-based approach. This has increased compatibility with mobile devices and removes Flash as a dependency for multiple file uploads. The Flash-based uploader is now deprecated. While the HTML5 uploader is enabled by default, you can change back to the previous uploader code by disabling the "Use new HTML5 uploader" option. Generally this should not be necessary; however it's possible the new uploader may not be immediately compatible with all add-ons. If you run into problems uploading files in an add-on, you may wish to disable this option. Note that we have released updates to XenForo Media Gallery and Resource Manager that improve compatibility with the HTML5 uploader.

    Some of the changes in this release include:
    • Add a CAPTCHA to account confirmation email resending if you've previously requested a resend recently to limit potential abuse.
    • Limit the number of times you can change your email within a short period of time to limit potential abuse.
    • Insert user change log records when two-step verification is enabled/disabled.
    • Log profile post and profile post comment edits to the moderator log for consistency.
    • Improved PHP 7.1 support with memory limit checks and numeric input handling.
    • Allow autolinking to include links containing "[" characters.
    • Allow the bounce parser to identify several other bounce message patterns.
    • Maintain ICC profiles when using the Imagick image processor only if supported by Imagick.
    • Move the Facebook logo sprite to be served locally as the existing URL no longer functions. (Note: this requires a new image within your image path: xenforo/connect_sprite.png.)
    • Add some padding around the message content element to prevent characters from being cut off in certain specific cases.
    • Fix sizing of the attachment thumbnail placeholder for non-image attachments when using a large thumbnail size.
    • In messages, only output the "person" metadata for registered members.
    • If the internal data path is a non-local path, ensure we use a local path for temporary files.
    • Adjust several phrases to use the more general wording of "the site" rather than "the board".

    Resource Manager updated to version 1.2.4

    This release fixes several issues:
    • Changes to support the new HTML5 uploader in XenForo 1.5.12.
    • Fix ignored users still receiving alerts when mentioned in a resource update or if a resource was posted/updated by an ignored user while watched.
    • Fix a specific situation where an option to delete an author's review response would appear incorrectly (display issue only; the response could not be removed).
    • Add a placeholder username if a review was left by a since deleted account.
    • Do not apply force enabled download permissions for your own resource when the resource was posted by a since deleted account.
    • When selecting a category to add a resource to, do not let the chooser be submitted until the user selects a valid category.
    • Fix unexpected model instantiation in the category watch data writer.
