    Hi Guys,

    I've always wondered why the XenForo update zip always hovers around 5MB even when selecting the download upgrade package only option in the customer area.

    According to yesterday's announcement only one file had to be overwritten. I could see having to upload a second file to update the version number but not a whole bunch of files. What gives?

    A decision was made to create a third point release as well as a patch file.

    It's up to you which one you use.

    If you use the release, the version will be increased to 1.4.1.
    If you use the patch file it will remain at 1.4.0.

    So there were other bug fixes in the release?

    I noticed the lack of a bullet list of fixes in the announcement, so just to clarify - 1.4.1 only contains the one updated swfupload.swf file? Nothing else? No other fixes?

    I only ask because I updated that one file on all eight of my boards last night as a quick-fix (until I could find more time to do the full 1.4.1 update). ;)

    Okay, thanks, I'll take the "Upgrade all forums to 1.4.1" off my to-do list ... :LOL:

    The upgrade package doesn't know which version you're upgrading from, that's why all the files minus images (I believe) are included.

    Images are also included.

    The upgrade package does not include the following files and directories:
    .htaccess
    data
    internal_data

    Other than that, it's identical to the full package.

    I did the same thing, just got the patch file. I'm glad that fixes all the issues with the upload, personally i like the simple browse button.

    This wasn't clear in the original security release post and so I was confused as well. Thank you for the explanation.

    I was lazy and was still hanging around on XF 1.4 RC1, so it was a very good excuse to get off my backside and update to the full supported release... :whistle:

    Am I the only one who did a version upgrade?
