Google has announced that Recaptcha version 1 will be shut down on March 31, 2018. We encourage people who are still using it to upgrade to Recaptcha version 2 (https://www.google.com/recaptcha/intro/) as soon as possible. Recaptcha version 1 will be removed from vBulletin starting in the 5.4.0 release.
We have no current plans to update ReCaptcha on vBulletin 4.2.X.
As of this writing there are reportedly working , free, ReCaptcha 2 add-ons for VB 4.x and 3.x on vBulletin.org though you need to read through the entire threads to get any fixes available for them to work on the...
Today, just over a year after we first unveiled the new version of XenForo to the public, we are delighted be able to release XenForo 2.0.0 and the accompanying 2.0.0 versions of our official add-ons. These are the first supported versions of the 2.0 series.
XenForo 2.0 is a major update from version 1. It includes many new features and significant changes under the hood, with the core code having been completely redesigned.
Today, we are pleased to release XenForo 1.5.16. This release fixes a number of bugs and issues that were found since the previous release. As this is a maintenance release, the vast majority of the focus was an increase in stability.
Some of the changes in this release include:
Automatically replace ReCAPTCHA v1 with ReCAPTCHA v2 (NoCaptcha). ReCAPTCHA v1 will be retired in 2018 and will no longer function.
Use an alternative approach for sitemap XML URLs due to changes in Google that prevented the old query string approach from being indexed as expected.
XenForo Media Gallery 1.1.15 is a maintenance release for our media gallery add-on. We recommend all customers running XenForo Media Gallery to upgrade to this release to benefit from increased stability.
This release fixes several issues:
Use the correct permission with regards to reporting media related content.
Reference the correct user in album watch emails.
Skip rebuilding watermark on images which might not exist.
Prevent duplicate share alerts when albums are shared with followers.
XenForo Enhanced Search 1.1.8 is a maintenance release for our search add-on. This release resolves compatibility issues with Elasticsearch 6. If you are using or plan to use to Elasticsearch 6, you must use this version of XenForo Enhanced Search or a newer version.
Elasticsearch 6 significantly changes how data is indexed compared to previous versions. Indexes upgraded from Elasticsearch 5 to 6 will maintain backwards compatibility with the previous index structure, but any indexes created in Elasticsearch 6 can only be accessed using the new "single type" approach. Add-ons that depend...
Today, we continue the release candidate stage of XenForo 2.0 with Release Candidate 3.
After a number of beta releases, the functionality of the product should be complete and the rate of bugs being reported (should) slow to a trickle, allowing the development team to work through the backlog and reduce the number of bugs to a handful. We have now reached this point in the development of XenForo 2.0, so the time is right to produce a release candidate.
This means that the software is proposed as stable, and a period of time is allowed to verify the proposal. If no major bugs are found...
