Community Builder 1.0.2 Released

Note (added Dec. 02. 2006)
CB 1.0.2 is not compatible with Joomla 1.0.10. So, if you want to install or upgrade to CB 1.0.2, you need to upgrade to Joomla 1.0.11.

The CB Core Team has just released version 1.0.2 of the Joomla Community Builder Suite.
This security, performance and stability release can be found in the download area of Joomlapolis (here) and the project area on the forge (here).
All CB installations should be upgraded to this release as soon as possible as a number of low, medium and potentially high security issues have been addressed, as well as a number of anti-spamming hardenings have been made. Although there are no known exploits at release time for the security issues that have been found and fixed by CB core team, we strongly advise for an upgrade.
New features have been kept to a minimum to maximize stability and security.
These include:

  • Compatibility with Joomla 1.5 beta 1 (for evaluation and test purposes only)
  • CB Login support for Missus, PMS Enhanced and JIM.
  • Core plugin support for PMS Enhanced and JIM.
  • New tools option in CB backend to perform database checks on integrity of the CB database.
  • Plugin API improvements.
  • Many minor bug fixes.
  • Expert installation package to preserve existing plugins (study readme very carefully!) 
  • For a complete list please see the artifacts list on the forge.

Due to the extensive improvements and optimizations, this release is expected to run much faster and to use less memory than previous releases. For example, the connections path tab can now be safely published and used on large sites.

The CB Core Team would like to thank the CB Testers that have been pounding away at the test builds in order to
make this release (as all previous ones) as solid as possible.
