XenForo 1.2.5 Released

XenForo 1.2.5 is a maintenance release in the 1.2 series and focuses on bug fixes and stability improvements. We recommend that all customers running a previous version of 1.2 upgrade when possible. If you are currently running XenForo 1.0 or 1.1, we also recommend upgrading to 1.2 when possible, but please be aware that this is a significant upgrade and you'll need to be aware of add-on and style compatibility changes.

  • Fix "v" being stripped from usernames where a very old PCRE library is in use.
  • Ensure that banned users do not receive conversation emails.

More Stable

The release of XenForo 1.2.5 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 this release. 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.
