The UseBB Team is happy to announce version 1.0.2 of the light and Open Source PHP/MySQL bulletin board package "UseBB".
Version 1.0.2 is a minor bug fix release. Changes include but are not limited to:
- Reply-To header support for emails (required on some hosts);
- security fix for the PHP Zend_Hash_Del_Key_Or_Index vulnerability;
- various bugs fixed throughout the whole board;
- limited performance improvements on topic view.
Upgrading is, as always, recommended. Visit http://www.usebb.net/downloads/ for downloads. Information about upgrading is available in the docs/index.html document.
The "PHP Zend_Hash_Del_Key_Or_Index vulnerability", also known as the "unset() vulnerability", is NOT a problem in UseBB itself but a weakness that existed in PHP until version 4.4.3 and 5.1.4. If you run a vulnerable PHP version, it is recommended to update UseBB. For more information, see http://www.hardened-php.net/hphp/zend_hash_del_key_or_index_vulnerability.html.
This release is also the first one to distribute new "changed files packages" containing only the changed files since the previous release. For more info, see the docs/index.html document.
