Hi everyone, 

We've just released v3.59 beta 2.  This is mostly a maintenance release.

*** Note that this version now requires PHP 8.  PHP 7 no longer gets security patches so if you haven't upgraded yet now is a good time!

This is mostly a maintenance release with a number of updates for PHP 8.x and misc bug fixes.   Here's the changelog:

*** May 24, 2023 - Version 3.59 (PHP 8 now required)

SERVER REQUIREMENTS
- This software version REQUIRES: PHP 8.0+ and MySQL 5.5+

MINOR CHANGES
- Server Info: "Admin > General > Server" has been updated to display more info about server
- Server Info: "Admin > General > Server" now provides links for viewing MySQL status and variables
- Backups: CMS Backups are now created as temp files and renamed on completion to prevent partial backups on error
- Translations: Added some additional text to the translation system
- Viewers: date searches now work with special createdDate and updatedDate fields

BUG FIXES & CODE UPDATES
- Database: Fixed bug where MariaDB 'null' defaults in backups couldn't be restored in MySQL
- Swift Mailer: Fixed some additional PHP 8.x warnings and errors.
- Fixed minor bug in SVG detection causing false positives in non-SVG images
- Developer Log: Removed Symbol Table as PHP 8 set_error_handler() function no longer supports it
- MySQL 8 Support: Renamed _cron_log table column "function" to "functionName" (reversed name)
- Libraries: Updated HTML Purifier from 4.14 to 4.15
- Remove /3rdParty/PHP_Compat/ PHP compatibility libraries that aren't required with PHP 8
- Additional PHP 8.x support fixes
- Misc Code and other minor improvements.

Hi Dave,

You may want to review the base CMSB htaccess <IfModule mod_phpX.c> directive. Will continue testing the beta release.

Thanks!

IS the title of the post correct? Shouldn’t it be 3.59 beta 2

Hi All, 

Thanks for the feedback!

Steve99: Good catch, I'll have a look through the .htaccess, .user.ini, and php.ini and update them as needed.

Zaba: Yes, that should be fixed in the latest beta and forthcoming release.

Kitsguru: Yes, the post title is incorrect.  I fixed it.  Kind of ironic that the forum post title for a beta has a bug.  :-)

Everything has been looking pretty good and we've been running this version on our own website for a week now without issues so we should be releasing the final version very shortly.

Thanks everybody for your help! :-)
