We would like to thank everyone that provided bug reports and feedback throughout the beta and release candidate period. We couldn't have done it without you.
All licensed customers may now download the new version from the customer area.
Amongst the new XenForo 1.2 features are the following:
- User merging and bulk user management
- Post edit history and logging
- Signature permissions
- Route filters (a system to change XenForo's URLs)
- Template modifications and comparison utilities
- Template merging and edit history
- A new editor with drag and drop, image paste support, user tagging, and iOS/Android support
- A fully responsive design
- Support for watching a forum
- User group and staff banners
- Bulk thread management
Also new with XenForo 1.2 are importers for MyBB 1.6 and XenForo 1.2. These are available immediately within the Import External Data section of the XenForo Admin Control Panel. Note that both of these importers are themselves considered beta and in testing.
XenForo Resource Manager and Enhanced Search with 1.2
While the 1.0.1 releases of each of these add-ons work with XenForo 1.2.0, we recommend that you upgrade to the 1.0.2 releases each of add-on (if you are running them). They add full support for 1.2's changes. In the case of the Resource Manager, this includes full responsive support. See the release announcements for more details
Installation and Upgrade Instructions
Full details for how to install and upgrade XenForo can be found in the XenForo Manual.
Expect many add-ons and styles to be broken after upgrading to 1.2 (from 1.1). You must test your add-ons thoroughly or look for updates. Be especially careful with add-ons that cover similar features to ones that are added to 1.2; these may conflict with the core XenForo data. If data conflicts are found, they will need to be resolved in a new add-on release or by removing the add-on before upgrading to 1.2.
We highly recommend that you backup your data (database and files) before you upgrade to 1.2, particularly if you are running third-party add-ons. You may wish to also upgrade your test installation before updating production to make sure you are prepared.
