    vBulletin 3.7.2

    vBulletin 3.7.2 Patch Level 2 has since been released, the current download now contains this patch.

    As promised last week, today sees the scheduled release of a maintenance version for vBulletin 3.7.x.

    vBulletin 3.7.2 contains only bug fixes, details of which can be found in the bug tracker.

    The security fixes included in vBulletin 3.7.1 PL1 and PL2 are also included in vBulletin 3.7.2.

    Upgrading from Previous Versions

    3.7.2 is a maintenance release. We recommend that all customers running prior versions of vBulletin 3.7 upgrade to benefit from bug fixes and stability improvements.

    Full instructions for upgrading vBulletin are available here.

    PHP and MySQL Requirements

    Please note that vBulletin 3.7.x requires at least PHP 4.3.3 and MySQL 4.0.16 or later.

    However, we recommend that vBulletin 3.7.x is run on PHP 5.2.6 with APC (or a similar opcode cache) and MySQL 5.0.51 for best performance and stability.

    End of Life for PHP 4

    The PHP group has announced the end of life for PHP 4. We strongly recommend that customers update their servers to PHP 5.2.6 if they are still running PHP 4. vBulletin 3.7.x supports PHP 5 without any problems, though you may need to disable strict mode for MySQL, see here on how to enable 'force_sql_mode'.

    Note: We will continue to support PHP 4 in the vBulletin 3 series.

    Download vBulletin 3.7.2

    As usual, vBulletin 3.7.2 is available for all customers with valid, active licenses to download from the vBulletin Members' Area.
