XenForo 1.4.3 Released

Today, we are pleased to release XenForo 1.4.3. This release fixes a number of bugs and issues that were found since the release of 1.4.2. As this is a maintenance release, the vast majority of the focus was an increase in stability.

This release also adds an importer for SMF 2.0. As this is an initial release, changes may need to be made to deal with the various types of data in the wild. If you have SMF 2.0 data you'd like to bring into XenForo, please try the importer and let us know how it goes.

Some of the bugs fixed in 1.4.3 include:
  • Don't show contact details custom fields in the message template when privacy checks are applied
  • Prevent malformed BB code from being used to potentially bypass certain signature tag limits
  • Update Facebook video to use Facebook's new display/embed method
  • Adjusted the timezones phrases to handle changes from the last few years (most significantly in Russia)
  • Change the stats table to store results in a bigint to support days with values greater than 4 billion
  • Fix cached like updates when deleting a user
  • Move IEMobile detection to ensure it is always triggered when it should be
  • Fixed the smilie tabs not working correctly with multiple editors on a page
  • When creating a thread, allow the poll question/answers to be restored from a draft

More Stable

This release 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.
