    Time for another beta!

    Beta 5 brings a collection of important bug fixes. There are also a few new features to help you along, which we've listed below.

    We recommend that all customers running previous 1.1 beta versions now upgrade to Beta 5.

    All licensed customers may now download the new version from the customer area.

    This is Beta Software

    Please remember that this is beta software. It contains known bugs and incomplete functionality. We do not recommend running beta software in a production environment, and support is limited at this time to questions here on the community forums.

    If you choose to run beta software, it is your responsibility to ensure that you make a backup of your data. We recommend you do this before attempting an upgrade.

    Installation and Upgrade Instructions

    Full details for how to install and upgrade XenForo can be found in the XenForo Manual.

    Sessions from the Cache

    If you have defined a cache in your config file, using memcached, APC, the file cache or any of the other options, XenForo will now store its visitor session data in that cache rather than the database, saving two queries per page. On a busy site, this can be a huge performance boost.

    Note that while this feature was in beta 4, to continue using it, you must add this line to library/config.php:
    $config['cache']['cacheSessions'] = true;

    New Tool to Display Customized Style Components

    Using this new tool, it is possible to list all templates and style properties that have been customized within a style, which can help in identifying unexpected results in your final output styles, when you're not sure where a particular piece of code is coming from.

    More Accurate HTML to BB Code Convertor

    This eliminates several issues and inconsistent handling that occurred when saving messages written with the WYSIWYG editor. This should allow the output in your messages to be closer to what you see in the editor.

    Extended Moderator Logging

    Moderators will now have all of their actions logged, except for when they edit their own posts. Previously, they were exempt from other types of logs on their own components.

    Additionally, certain actions may trigger several individual entries in the moderator log, each providing more detail than the single entry before.

    Additional Security for Super Admins

    In the admin control panel, super admins will need to confirm their own password before making changes to admin permissions or other super admins' profiles.
