PivotX 2.1.2 released.

By Bob den OtterTuesday 28 September 2010

We've released PivotX 2.1.2 as a maintenance release for all users of PivotX. This release contains no major new functionality, but it does fix a number of smaller bugs and quirks. See the list below for details:

  • Bugfix: Internet explorer 7 could 'hang' when writing a new entry or page, because of an issue with URI generation.
  • We've made several fixes to prevent XSS exploits
  • We've added support for filtering the sitemap based on disallow entries in robots.txt and added support for additional URIs in the sitemap.
  • We're now escaping HTML for other types of textprocessing too, not just for WYSIWYG.
  • Some fixes and changes were made to the built-in Slideshow and Fancybox extensions.
  • We updated TinyMCE (the WYSIWYG editor) to version
  • Fixed Magpie's parsing of dates: Some feeds (like Twitter searches) would give wrong dates, breaking the Lifestream extension
  • Bug fix: Adding a new entry could cause all words used in old entries to be removed from the search index because of flawed logic in removeFromSearchIndex and addToSearchIndex. (Flatfile DB only)
  • Fixed bug in searchEntries (Flatfile DB only)
  • Fixed an issue with unparsed Markdown text in search results.

This stable maintenance release can be downloaded from this location: pivotx.net/files/pivotx_212.zip (or pivotx.net/files/pivotx_212.tgz, if you prefer .tgz files). For setup instructions, we point you to our documentation: Getting the files & installing. If you're having trouble downloading the files, you can also download them from our sourceforge mirror.

Which fixes and changes where made for the Fancybox extension? Does this include the fourth profile Harm10 submitted (http://forum.pivotx.net/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1692&p=8913#p8913)?
I don't want the changes made in the fancybox snippet overwritten by the newer version in 2.1.2

Willem: Yes, those changes are in 2.1.2..
