MyBB 1.2.7 Released - Security & Maintenance Release
#1
MyBB 1.2.7 is now available on the MyBB website and is a general maintenance release as well as a security update release that patches a recently discovered low threat vulnerability.

Over 50 bugs were identified with MyBB 1.2.3 in 1.2.6 through bug report submissions, beta testing and internal analysis. These bugs have been fixed to provide a more stable version of MyBB for public use.

What's added/changed in this version?
  • Speed improvements for forums with millions of posts (Rewritten count system)
  • When using MySQL fulltext searching, the minimum search term error is only shown when all search terms are below the minimum length.
  • Additional information on plugins in debug mode

Information on upgrading, template changes and language changes can be found in the posts below. MyBB 1.1.x patches can also be found below.

If for some reason you cannot immediately update to this release:
We recommend applying the attached manual patch instructions for the vulnerability found in MyBB 1.2.6. You should only consider this a temporary solution and make the effort to upgrade to 1.2.7 as soon as possible.

To patch your 1.2.7 to fix these vulnerabilities please follow the following instructions:

Please note, that you need to run the upgrade script for this version. This is so the templates may be updated.
There are no database schema changes in this version.

Thank you to Ryan for preparing this announcement for me as I have been pre-occupied with family related things this week.
