2.0.7 vs 2.0.7a question

Post by uncle.f » Thu Mar 25, 2004 11:49 am

In the announcements forum it says that the 'Possible SQL Injection' fix have been incorporated into the downloadable packages.
However if I open 2.0.7a files that should have been updated, I cannot see any of the directives mentioned further in the security announcement.

And another question: why PHPBB downloadable packages never have that revision letter in the file name? Because of that, and because of the previous paragraph, I am not sure if I have 2.0.7 or 2.0.7a, although I've just downloaded it from Sourceforge...

Could you please clarify the situation,

Reagards

It appears that some of the SF mirrors have not updated, so you may need to try a different mirror to get the latest version.

(As an asside to those who know SF better than me, I thought that the mirrors should be in synch after 24 hours of an update?)

Thanks Ghaham,

You were right, indeed!
Some mirrors STILL have the old version of PHPBB (and it is the 25th of March today, meaning it's been a week now!).

The mirror that has the right one is "Brookfield, WI".

search.php has 18 March in the header.

I REALLY wish PHPBB guys included revision letter (a, b, c...) in the filename. Then it wouldn't be such a mess...

Best regards

The point is defunct no anyway, since the new release has been number 2.0.8 so you'll know what it is :)
