ElkArte 1.1.7 - Released


Feb 25, 2021
Today, we are pleased to release ElkArte 1.1.7. This is the 8th release in the ElkArte 1.1 line.

This release addresses many bugs and some minor security issues identified after the release of ElkArte 1.1.6. As this is a maintenance release, the majority of the updates are focused on bug fixes, PHP 7.4/8 compatibility, and increased stability. A few enhancements to existing functionality were added, examples being one click un-subscribe in email notifications and the capability to search on subject when using a full-text index.

This is patch does contain security fixes and we strongly encourage anyone running any previous version to update to the latest.

This release follows our semantic version (MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH), meaning that third-point (x.x.X) releases should contain backward-compatible bug fixes and enhancements, so for the most part you will not find major new features in this release. Major new features will be reserved for second-point versions (x.X.x).

Refer to the release notes on the forum for a complete list of updates. Release Notes
