XenForo 1.1.4 is the fourth maintenance release in the 1.1 series. While it's primary purpose is to fix bugs, this release also includes some small feature improvements as well. These are detailed below.

Amongst the bug fixes, there are several minor security improvements:
  • Images are checked for certain content to ensure that the image does not contain code that could be executed with incorrect server configuration (such as in Nginx). Thanks to Chris Deeming for reporting this.
  • 1.1.4 now mitigates clickjacking attacks using X-Frame-Options. Thanks to Vikram Pawar (w4rl0ck_d0wn) for reporting this.
  • Server error logs now more aggressively filter out passwords before logging. Thanks to Slink for reporting this.
We recommend all customers upgrade to 1.1.4 to benefit from the increased stability and security improvements.

Feature Improvements

Some of the feature improvements in 1.1.4 include:
  • Stronger spam prevention
  • Ability to see if there are any registrations that need to be approved from the moderator bar
  • Spam cleaning a user will automatically close any pending reports for their content
  • Read only access to registration date and last activity on profiles in the admin CP
  • Item count support for navigation tabs
  • Additional admin-only links on the front-end profile page

More Stable

This release of XenForo 1.1.4 follows our principle that third-point (x.x.X) releases should always be more stable than the preceding version, so for the most part you will not find new features in 1.1.4. Major new features will be reserved for second point versions (x.X.x).

Installation and Upgrade Instructions

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

Templates Changed Since 1.1.3

The following templates have been modified since their release in XenForo 1.1.3.
