IP.Board 4.4.x Upgrade

Recommended Posts

IP.Board 4.4.x will require more substantial changes than the v4.2 and v4.3 updates required. So I will be going through all my applications and plugins to confirm compatibility and fix issues where needed. As it stands, I expect most of my major applications and some plugins will require new updates to be compatible with IP.Board 4.4.x.

Compatibility Issues
Several applications and a few plugins have critical errors in IP.Board 4.4.x. Primarily major applications that store content items like videos and the collections apps for example. The remainder have had some performance improvements that IPB 4.4.x recommends applied to them. I've checked over the basic functionality of each app or plugin to make sure there were no remaining issues with IP.Board 4.4.x.

Bugs & New Features
As with previous updates, I can't focus on both compatibility and adding new features and bugs. There are a few exceptions that I'll note in the release notes but the majority are just compatibility with IP.Board 4.4.x.

Great, that you work :)

Calendar Topics is one of major plugins that i use, can you estimate time, that it will be compatible with 4.4?

Thanks,

Marcin.

I'll prioritize this app for you. Should be released within the next few days.

When I am trying to download the videos - it is still for 4.3

The Videos was checked and updated but I have not packaged it up and release it yet. That should be done within the next day or two.

He'll get to them, he's pretty reliable, one of the best by my standards; Mike was just caught off guard by the sudden updates, to be fair though; all my stuff works fine in 4.4 even not having been upgraded. I'd suggest, if he is working on replies, he's not upgrading :) .

Oh, I know. Mike is indeed top-notch all around. I haven't upgraded to 4.4, let alone tested that version yet. Since I was here checking up on the updates, I might as well post the applications I'm looking forward to. :D

lol, I was just giving you a hard time lol.  But seriously though, they seem to run fine on 4.4 (the 4.3 versions I have) but he did get with me and let me know what he was doing, he made mention he was taken a bit by surprise with the update; but he has been hustling on it so we should see some roll out soon.

Starting on packaging up and releasing now. When an app or plugin is marked as done, you'll notice the change log has changed or the update checker should notify you on the newest release.

All apps and plugins should now be released and available for download both here and the IPS Marketplace. Thanks for everyone's patience.

The Collections app also received some bug fixes. And the Basic Points app received some new features. The remainder fixes either critical errors or implemented some performance improvements that IPB 4.4.x recommends.

Please report any bugs you encounter in the bug tracker.  I'm also interesting in new feature suggestions as well.
