PivotX 2.3.5 released.

We've just released an incremental update for PivotX 2.3. It contains minor updates and fixes, that were recently fixed. This is a recommended upgrade for all PivotX 2.x websites. This release contains no security fixes. For former security related issues and patches, see the page dedicated to Security issues.

These are the changes since PivotX 2.3.3:

  • Fixed compatibility issue with PHP 5.4.
  • Bug fix in relativeToAbsoluteURLS. Improving regexp so all relative URLs are modified. (Important for feeds).
  • Lifestream version 1.0.1: Fixed Twitter issue - updated URL to RSS feed.
  • Updated jquery to 1.8.2.
  • Fixing issue with initial entries not showing up after installation. (Flat file database only.)
  • Replacing "mktime()" with "time()" since "As of PHP 5.1, when called with no arguments, mktime() throws an E_STRICT notice".
  • Various bug fixes for comments feeds: No output if weblog parameter was present / Fixed wrong id.
  • Minor fix in getFiles so it works correctly on Windows servers.
  • Most templates are rewritten to use a more consistent naming scheme.
  • Fixed: Wrong detection of safe_mode in PHP.
  • Added: Extrafields support in the 'orderby' parameter for subweblogs.
  • Fixed: Orphan page and next/previouspage template resulted in never ending loop.
  • Changed: Disregarding number of entries for the pager count when subweblog is called 'archive'.
  • Added: support for separate icons when running in multisite mode - looking for "images/favicon.ico".
