XenForo 1.5.15a Released

Today, we are pleased to release XenForo 1.5.15. This release fixes a number of bugs and issues that were found since the previous release. As this is a maintenance release, the vast majority of the focus was an increase in stability.

Some of the changes in this release include:
  • Add support for PHP 7.2.
  • Add beta support for importing from phpBB 3.2 and IPB 4.2.
  • Update our Facebook API calls to use version 2.10.
  • Fix an issue where email change notices would not be sent as expected when changing your email address.
  • When loading news feed entries via Ajax, ensure that additional CSS and JS is loaded correctly.
  • When hard deleting a profile post comment, ensure that the related deletion log and moderation queue records are removed as well.
  • When banning a user with the spam cleaner, also remove their avatar.
  • Prevent an error related to displaying likes if the like users cache is not populated correctly.
  • Properly handle redirects in the HTTP client where the redirect target is just a query string.
  • Include the page number in the <title> tag on the tag view pages.
See the Resolved Bug Reports forum for further information.

The following templates have had changes:
  • page_nav.css
  • tag_view
Where necessary, the merge system within the "Outdated Templates" page should be used to integrate these changes.

Please note that we are now formally recommending that you upgrade to PHP 5.4 or newer. XenForo 2.0 requires PHP 5.4 or newer. If you are running PHP 5.3 or 5.2, you will receive a warning when installing or upgrading XenForo.

All customers with active licenses may now download the new version from the customer area.

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.

Shortly after the release of 1.5.15, a behavior change in Chrome 61 was identified. We have fixed the issues caused by this behavior change and updated the download to 1.5.15a to indicate that these fixes are included. Please note that these issues are not related to 1.5.15 and will affect previous versions.

The issues caused by this Chrome behavior change include:
  • Clicking a quote attribution link does not scroll the page.
  • The inline moderation overlay is not always positioned correctly when the page is scrolled (thus making inline moderation not always directly usable).
  • Clicking a login link when the page is scrolled does not scroll to the page top.
If you are not running 1.5.15, download 1.5.15a from your customer area and upgrade as normal.

If you upgraded after downloading 1.5.15a from your customer area, you do not need to take any other steps.

If you are running 1.5.15 and wish to fix this bug, you may either:
  1. Download 1.5.15a from your customer area and reupload the files as if you were upgrading.
  2. Change the patched files manually with the versions from this bug report. Note that this approach will show these files as not containing the expected contents in the file health check.
Please note that the version will still display 1.5.15 in your admin control panel.
