Post Icy Phoenix 1.1.5.20 Beta 1 
 
Hi all,
after some months of development I have decided to release a new beta to test the new features included in Icy Phoenix.

As I promised, no new "external" mods have been installed (only a couple of already included have been updated), only new things coded by me and some interesting phpBB 3 features are to be considered in the "what's new". Here is a small list...


What's New

  • Groups system: the old color group mod has been dropped and a new system has been recoded to make groups management close to phpBB 3 way.
  • CMS features: now it is possible to assign blocks on single pages, not only as global blocks, but as specific blocks.
  • Save as draft: it is now possible to save posts and PM as drafts. The function is similar to phpBB 3 one, but much more simpler and with less features.
  • Pages sessions: phpBB 3 has a much more flexible pages sessioning system, allowing better tracking of what users do. In Icy Phoenix I have partially replicated it, by modifying the way sessions work.
  • Actions logs: I have coded a small and simple logging system which stores on files all the actions performed by users which alter in some way the DB. The logs are difficult to read, so it is disabled by default and the switch to enable it is hidden. If someone is interested in I may show how to enable it... but I won't help in reading it, because it is tough for who doesn't know PHP, and how requests are made.
  • Extra stuff not enabled by default and not supported: since many of you requested integration of Cash and Activity, I have decided to integrate this in Icy Phoenix, and I will continue to keep them updated as the release is going on... but no support will be given with these extra features.
  • Templates: some small adjustments have been applied to the templating system to make it a bit more flexible and some new templates designed by me will be available with this release.
  • Extra debugging: phpBB 3 has a cool debugging feature which tells you the queries of each page and the time used for them. I've tried to enhance this feature a bit including some extra info and memory usage. This will be tremendously helpful for those webmasters who wants to understand the entity of Icy Phoenix charge and settings. Extra info about the usage of this feature, will follow.
  • Small fixes and adjustments: several small fixes and adjustments have been applied to the package. I don't have a full list of them, but you will notice some changes somewhere... I hope you will appreciate it. Just some of them: resend registration, remove cookies, album rss, new thumbnails functions.
  • Security fixes: unfortunately I've found during the dev phase some extra security holes which I have fixed the most risky in the available patch for 15b, but two of them which I was unsure, have been recoded differently to minimize infection risk.



Support

Regarding the support for beta, I'll quote phpBB beta release statement:
Acyd Burn wrote: 
During the beta phase a minimal level of support will be given. We will provide answers to general setup questions, configuration problems and support for determining common problems mostly related to bugs. We will not support modifications, custom code/style additions or any users using the beta packages within a live environment.

For some support questions or bug reports we may ask you to re-install the beta, clean tables in the database, purge data or other actions which are not advised to do in a live environment. So please be aware that you are still on your own if you run the beta in such an environment.

Beginning with the release candidates full support will be given.


As usual, no code changes will be released, and won't probably be released for any version in the future. This is because the package is quite huge and writing code changes requires much time: as I already said in the past, I prefer to focus my free time on developing the package instead of writing huge code changes that could be difficult to be applied. Trust me, in most cases it is quicker to replace old files with new ones and reapply eventually added mods (you should take note of the mods you have applied). My efforts will be dedicated to the upgrade procedures to allow you to upgrade your sites with the smallest unexpected issues.

Anyway for final release, I'll try to provide a changed files package and a small template changes guide... or at least a list with the changed files for those who have modded their site or released templates. I'll try to give translators a list of changed files as well.

Available Packages

Since this is a beta package, I prefer to release an all in one package which includes in several folders all the extras and templates. I know that this means having a bigger file, but I don't want users trying to install extras in the latest stable release, because with high probability modifications for Icy Phoenix 1.1.0.15 won't work in newer releases, because of the new modifications I made to the core files.

Currently available is only a single big pack.

Icy Phoenix 1.1.5.20 Beta 1
Package Name: Icy Phoenix
Package Version: 1.1.5.20 Beta 1
Release Spot: str_replace('24 hours per day', '48 hours per day', $my_life).


DOWNLOAD: Icy Phoenix 1.1.5.20 Beta 1


Should you ask for support, please remember that this is an open source community and me and all the Staff are doing all for free and in their spare time... be kind, be patient and respect other users efforts and hard work.

Enjoy Icy Phoenix!
