Hi,

Quote:
phpBB Group announces the release of phpBB 2.0.20, the "Golden Super Furry Linen" edition. This release is a cumulative bug fix update, as well as including a number of minor security fixes. We have also introduced a new feature to allow you to limit how often a user may conduct a search if you find that searches are putting a load on your server, as well as changing the default permissions on new forums so that you must explicitly make them available for guests to post in and enabling visual confirmation by default on all new installs.

As with all new releases we urge you to update as soon as possible. You can of course find this download available on our downloads page. As per usual four packages are available to simplify your update.

What has changed in this release?

The changelog (contained within this release) is as follows


* [Fix] Prevent login attempts from incrementing for inactive users
* [Fix] Do not check maximum login attempts on re-authentication to the admin panel - tomknight
* [Fix] Regenerate session keys on password change
* [Fix] retrieving category rows in index.php (Bug #90)
* [Fix] improved index performance by determining the permissions before iterating through all forums (Bug #91)
* [Fix] Better handling of short usernames within the search (bug #105)
* [Fix] Send a no-cache header on admin pages as well as normal board pages (Bug #149)
* [Fix] Apply word censors to the message when quoting it (Bug #405)
* [Fix] Improved performance of query in admin_groups (Bug #753)
* [Fix] Workaround for an issue in either PHP or MSSQL resulting in a space being returned instead of an empty string (bug #830)
* [Fix] Correct use of default_style config value (Bug #861)
* [Fix] Replace unneeded unset calls in admin_db_utilities.php - vanderaj
* [Fix] Improved error handling in modcp.php
* [Fix] Improved handling of forums to which the user does not have any explicit permissions - vanderaj
* [Fix] Assorted fixes and cleanup of admin_ranks.php, now requires confirmation of deletions

* [Sec] Some changes to HTML handling if enabled
* [Sec] Escape any special characters in reverse dns - Anthrax101

This script is very very buggy, I reccomend not upgrading.

There is some search bugs on the 100Ws forum aswell.

The search function, you cannot search again for a while. This also affects new posts search, which is a bug.

I know they done this to lower the server load, but the gap is too large. Sometimes you cannot search at all.

Well I havent updated the phpBB Forums for my new site Im developing yet, but I am sure if you take a good look at the PHP code, you can be able to custom edit it and change that little bug. :D

I've spent the past few days writing upgrade scripts for it from all versions below 2.0.20 to upgrade my forum host.
