X3 [0.17.1] Maintenance Release

16 Apr 2016, 18:32

X3 [0.17.1] Maintenance Release
OK, here comes a crucial maintenance release that completes the recent 0.17 release a few days ago. We have squashed newly arrived bugs, and smoothed out some other things. I believe the 0.17 branch is now complete.

Download & Upgrade
1. Download latest version x3.latest.nocontent.zip
2. Update ALL files in your X3 folder (also root files), EXCEPT folders /content/ and /config/.
3. Enjoy!

---

BUG FIXES
- Fixed EXIF to use DateTimeOriginal, which is when the photo is taken, instead of of DateTime.
- Fixed potential complications with panel localStorage after update [see issue]
- Fixed bug where input text for NEW folder and RENAME file/folder is invisible in Firefox [see issue]
- Fixed a bug with panel persistent language after logout [see issue]
- Fixed a bug when using xxlarge,large,large,small,xsmall in settings->style->font strings [ref]
- Fixed "removeComments" footer bug in PHP7
- Fixed loading bug when font-awesome is installed as system-font. Also affected the toolbar.
- Fixed "error log" where panel is trying to load a path that does not exist any more.

Date format setting
We have added settings -> date format, which allows you to customize how all dates are formatted. You can find a good reference on how to create your custom date format here.

More
- Folder and gallery item "amount" is now hidden if the amount is 0. No need to display "0 images" or "0 folders". This makes it easier to combine category-pages and galleries in the same parent page.
- Upgraded to latest jQuery 2.2.3
- Upgraded to latest Font-Awesome 4.6.1, frontend and panel
- Removed deprecated "mysql" extension check from diagnostics.
- Upgraded ad synchronized various CDN sources for panel.

Updated markdown parser
Updated markdown parser to comply with PHP7.

Warning! There is a slight change to how the new markdown parses single line-breaks. The previous parser incorrectly used a "hack" to convert single line-breaks to <br>, but that was not correct markdown. There is therefore a small chance you may need to edit some page content.

markdown documentation wrote:When you do want to insert a <br /> break tag using Markdown, you end a line with two or more spaces, then type return.
PS! Here is a nice markdown guide:

Thanks for all the work Karl... I just installed the latest build.

I am still having performance problems with my site and would like to propose that the directory that contains the cache be pulled out into a root level directory and treated much like content and config. This way we don't have to rebuild the cache with each new release.

This shouldn't be an issue. Normal FTP behavior does not overwrite your _cache content, because the original _cache folder in x3 release zip is empty. Normally, all your cache should be preserved ... Perhaps you should try to update and check the cache folders after?

It should be said, after an update, all your cache (except images) gets invalidated anyway and needs to get recreated. This is simply because templates are changing, and so must the output of ALL cached fragments and templates.

As mentioned earlier, I would like to do some tests on your server if you have FTP. I want to find out exactly what processes are creating the long delay ... naturally it will be the menu to a large degree, but could also be other things. Also, I want to see why things don't get much faster after the menu gets cached once, and pages get cached in general. I would create a "maintenance mode" that visitors would see, while logged in panel users (me) would be able to diagnose the system speeds for all processes.

Also, I am a bit wary about your auto-caching setup. Probably makes no difference, but if for example two (or more) pages get requested before the first menu-cache object is created, it means it is doing the same process from multiple requests, yet with the same limited/shared resources ... If your initial menu takes 30 seconds to create, 4 requests would make it 2 minutes to create the same object that gets cached anyway, likely causing a timeout.

@Alexhenes: Hang on, I already have several performance improvements already in the loop, which might make a substantial difference for your website.

Hi Karl,

I just updated to 0.17.1 and everything just disappeared ...

I updated everything but /config and /content, updated to php 5.6 and renamed .htaccess but I can't see even the panel ...

Probably I'm missing something ...

Thanks.

Hard to diagnose as your server just says "page isn't working". Can you offer me FTP?

In the interest of insuring that stale files are removed during an upgrade I have been deleting everything but content and config then uploading the new X3 build. So yeah... I have been inadvertently deleting the cache :cry:

The link doesn't change ... It is the same that you received in your license email!

We do not currently post the link public.

From next week, you will start receiving emails when there is an update available.
