The new version of miniBB should be released soon, and it's 50% about the new version of Premoderation add-on, which should be released in the end, after all codes are completed. We currently hold the older version of Premoderation, but please note - it will be discontinued soon. It's mostly kept for those, who want to stay and happy with the older version, so they could upgrade it to the end-of-support.
In opposite to the current version, the new version of this add-on will use the new principle of pre-moderated messages posted in standalone mySQL tables, so they do not appear on the forum at all and not counted/shown in members profiles. If there are installed File Attachments add-on, Private Messaging add-on, Smilies or Color Picker, or all at once, the new version will be bundled with them all. More information of this add-on will come on its release.
Following the graduated upgrading way, today there were released the updated versions of the following add-ons:
* File and Image Attachments
- the newer package will contain changes in the following files:addon_fileupload.php
- support for the new version of Premoderation add-onbb_plugins.code.txt
- support for the new version of Premoderation add-onbb_plugins2.code.txt
- support for small images is back - now if their width/height doesn't exceed the defined thumbnail's parameters, they will be stored "as is" with no thumbnail.addon_fileupload_options.php
- updates for Archives ($addPath) and the new Premoderation add-onfileupload_clean.php
- update for Archives
* Private Messaging
- the following files affected:bb_plugins_premodpm.code.txt
- NEW - the code not to allow premoderated members sending PM except to admin and moderators/lang/
- language packs updates for the above codeaddon_pmail_send.php
- update regarding the new Premoderation ruleaddon_pmail_options.php
- $loginLogout enclosed in the condition:
are now ready for the new Premoderation
* Color Picker
- its bb_plugins.code.txt
is ready for the new Premoderation, too.
Since there were no security updates
and no critical changes, and the updates mostly affect the newer version of Premoderation add-on, you are not
advised to upgrade your forums to these versions immediately. However, I'd like to keep in a focus, that further upgrades of these add-ons, and the core, will be based on these versions only, and the older versions are not supported anymore.
You're welcome giving more questions in this thread.
