X3 Release [0.15]

21 Jan 2016, 07:28

X3 Release [version 0.15]
To compliment the official release a few weeks ago, we have launched a new version 0.15.

Improved Performance
We have improved the code so the initial output of a page should process faster from the server. Especially for websites with heavy content/cache structure, this should have a substantial positive effect on performance.

Improved Diagnostics
We have improved the diagnostics, which helps diagnose (and possibly resolve) server-related issues. The /check/ folder is now obsolete, and has been removed ... Existing X3 users are recommended to DELETE this folder. You will also find a new PHPinfo section in panel->tools, which displays extensive PHP information for your server.

Features
- Added "popup" and "x3-popup" options for the page -> menu LINK feature. forum
- Added option to save custom templates from page -> gallery/folders settings. forum
- X3-popup does not scale images up now. forum
- Resized image-request is now bypassed if the original image is smaller than the requested width.
- Image resize requests are now rounded DOWN on retina devices to prevent loading of unnecessarily large images files. It's entirely fine to use 1.5-2x image size on retina.
- Improved design of the success/fail icon after send mail, replacing the natural position of the form.
- Panel settings "password", "DB-password" and "SMTP-password" are hidden-text inputs.
- Added "Embed MP4 Video" to content templates (for self-hosted video).

Fixed various bugs and warnings
- Fixed image-landing pages bug, when images are in root/index folder forum
- Fixed bug with landing-pages for images with uppercase extension *.JPG, forum
- Fixed scrollnav bug when using gallery slideshow AND folders layout with scrollnav on same page. forum
- Carousel autoplay now STOPS on image click (open popup). PS! does not restart on exit popup. forum
- Fixed bug with minify of custom javascripts (panel->settings->custom->custom javascript)
- Added utf8_validate() function to check for non-valid utf-8 IPTC/Exif strings in images (which could break pages), and convert if necessary.
- Fixed SMTP issue on DB install
- Fixed various "warnings" that may display when error logging is enabled.

---

Upgrade
Download latest version x3.latest.nocontent.zip, and update (overwrite) ALL files in your X3 folder (also root files), EXCEPT folders /content/ and /config/. Simple!

Upgraded! Took a few minutes of my time uploading the final release, converting then updating to the v0.15.

It's all good and I'm happy. The authorization to upgrade also took a few seconds via PAYPAL.

Loving it!

This is the same link as you used earlier to download, you must have it in an email or message. Also, in the download-URL, you can change "x3.latest.zip" with "x3.latest.nocontent.zip" to download the package without the sample content, which is easier when upgrading.

I don't post the download-link public, yet.

X3 Maintenance Release 0.15.1
There were a few minor issues to be resolved after 0.15 update, so we have released a maintenance update 0.15.1. Do I need to upgrade? Not really, unless you are affected by anything in the list below.

- Fixed broken header links in topbar "list" menu, when using numbers for names (ex. 2.2012). [forum]
- Fixed double-quotes issue when displaying content in x3-popup link. [forum].
- Fixed correct X3 version number in readme.txt.
- X3 version now displays in footer of admin panel.
- Added option to include custom file config/panel.css for styling the panel.
- Fixed broken panel link in diagnostics when X3 is in root directory.

Upgrade process woud be perfect if you can remove protect.php from x3.latest.nocontent.zip files (or config folder if required)... I've lost my logins one more time ! :P

(but I had backups :mrgreen:)

Hmm, good point, will look into it ... of course, you should not be uploading /config/ and /content/ folders on upgrade, regardless of their existence in the downloaded zip.

Well done Karl.

I should have some time this week.
Can I get this up and running live yet, or is it still recommended as Beta only?

Thanks Karl and well done.

We officially released X3 non-beta as of version 0.14, one month ago (see post). Now is as good as any time to start using X3.
