The UseBB project releases UseBB 1.0.10, the tenth maintenance release of the UseBB 1 light PHP 4 and MySQL bulletin board system.

This release fixes a quite important issue with possible infinite loops on BBCode parsing making DoS attacks possible. It also includes a major change in RSS feed generation, adding per forum and topic feeds and fixing multiple problems with feed contents.

Ofcourse, several other smaller bug fixes and changes are included:

- Fixed bug #2367: SQL error on search sorted by author.
- Fixed bug with remembering guest auth settings on adding new forum.
- Mass email in board default language and only to unique email addresses.
- Personal emails now sent in correct (recipient's) language.
- ...

As always, upgrading is recommended. Any version less or equal to 1.0.9 is now unsupported. Visit http://www.usebb.net/downloads/ for downloads. Information about upgrading is available in the docs/index.html document.

Done... thanks.

There was no database changes, right, one thing I didn't see listed.

There are no database changes. :)

Had to be 100% sure, thanks Dietrich.

PHP 5.3 Issues

Anyone who is using PHP 5.3 and is experiencing one of these issues:

- "Internet Explorer cannot display this web page"
- "Content encoding error" with Firefox or similar
- "Function ... is deprecated" UseBB/PHP error

...can replace the file sources/common.php with this new one or apply this patch.

This fixes these unwanted errors due to changes in PHP 5.3. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Thanks for your great work Dietrich! :-)

Dietrich, nice :D keep up the good work.
