    vBulletin 3.0.0 Beta 6 Released

    After a fairly long development period following the release of Beta 5, we can now present vBulletin 3.0.0 Beta 6.

    WYSIWYG II

    The most major change in this version is the new version of our WYSIWYG editor. The new version is faster and more efficient, and has the major benefit over the old version of being compatible with recent versions of the Mozilla browser. To use the WYSIWYG editor you should be running either Internet Explorer 5.5 or 6.0, Mozilla 1.3 (or newer) or Mozilla Firebird 0.6.1 (or newer).

    In addition, the non-WYSIWYG editor now shares many of its interface components with the WYSIWYG editor for visual consistency. The style of the controls can now be controlled via a section of the admin control panel style editor, so that the controls can be styled according to the style of your own forums if you so desire.

    To accomodate these changes, quite a few files have been moved around or renamed. Before uploading the new version, I would suggest that you look for the original filenames and delete those files, then you will not end up with duplicate and redundant files. The list of renamed and deleted files is at the bottom of this post.

    Scheduled Tasks & Temporary Bans

    Following customer feedback, the interface for the scheduled task (vBcron) manager has been re-written, and a new control has been added to allow you to execute any scheduled task instantly with the click of a button.

    The scheduled task that lifts the ban on temporarily banned users has now been re-scheduled to run once every hour instead of once every day, so 24 hour bans will now never last longer than 25 hours or less than 23 hours.

    Orphan Phrases

    Due to the way that the vB3 phrase system works, you may find that after running an upgrade some of the phrases that you translated for an earlier version of vB3 no longer exist, leaving your translated phrases orphaned in the database. A new tool in the phrase manager will detect and fix these orphan phrases. To use it, simply open the phrase manager and click on the 'Find Orphan Phrases' button at the bottom of the form. The system will then guide you through the necessary steps.

    We recomment that you check for orphan phrases each time you complete an upgrade script.

    Paid Subscriptions

    Improvements to the paid subscriptions system for Beta 6 include the ability to work in several currencies.

    At present, the only supported payment processor is PayPal, but support for NoChex and WorldPay will follow, pending their replies to queries we have submitted.

    Long Filenames

    It has come to our attention that Macintosh users were having difficulties with some of the vBulletin files due to the length of their filenames. We have now renamed all affected files to that they are 31 characters long or shorter.

    Usergroup Leaders

    Usergroup leaders are now able to view who is in their usergroup as well as remove users in their group.

    Attachment Manager

    Users may now remove attachments directly from their attachment manager (misc.php?do=attachments). This is helpful when you have attachment quotas enabled and users find themselves at the limit. The user has the option of viewing thumbnails of the attachments if you have them enabled.

    Pre-Release Testing

    As some of you may know, a number of customers' boards have been running a 'Beta 6 Preview' version since this morning, in order to help the developers iron out any silly mistakes and bugs that were not originally detected. Hopefully this process will reduce the number of bugs found in Beta 6, to the benefit of everyone.

    Thanks to the inhabitants of the #vborg IRC room for their help with this.

    Bug Fixes

    There were over 100 bug fixes for this release, here are a few examples:
    • All files are no longer than 32 characters due to OS issues. [view]
    • Scheduled Tasks may execute more than once. [view]
    • Admin CP and Mod CP not taking DST into account. [view]
    • Paid subscription users were not being unsubscribed. [view]
    • Users seeing the control panel login are displayed in WOL as being in the control panel [view]
    • Search engine generates insane results on certain conditions [view]
    • Custom phrases can not be edited (phrases are orphans) [view]
    Upgrade Instructions

    To upgrade your board, upload all files from the 'upload' folder in the zip file with the exception of install/install.php, then point your browser at install/upgrade.php. You should be automatically redirected to the appropriate upgrade script, then you need simply to follow the on-screen instructions.

    Installation Instructions

    To install vBulletin 3.0.0 Beta 6, follow the instructions in the vb3_beta5_readme.html file in the zip file from the members' area. (installation instructions are the same for Beta 6 as they were for Beta 5)

    To discuss this release, please post in this thread.

        Note for those people who installed the Beta 6 Preview version - if you did not get the instructions on how to upgrade your Beta 6 Preview version to Beta 6, please send me a private message.

          Minor bug - if you downloaded vB3 Beta 6 before this post was made, you will need to open up misc.php and search for
          Code:
          if (!empty($buddies))
          and replace it with
          Code:
          if (isset($buddies))
          The members' area has been updated with this fix.

            If you're doing a fresh install please run this query.

            Code:
            ALTER TABLE subscription CHANGE cost cost VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL

              For those experiencing errors regarding being unable to post, please revert your "headinclude" template.

              I suggest that you run the "Find Updated Templates" feature and check all the templates been updated since the last release as many others have changed.
