Since the very beginning, Lifetype has always been about diversity. First we had the Chinese speaking community, then the German speaking community and today we are happy to announce that we have got a new official community in our landscape, the Lifetype Russian community!
One of our intrepid users has started a "blog carnival" for Lifetype blogs. If you've got something worth sharing in your Lifetype blog or simply want to know more about blog carnivals, head to coldtobi's blog.
P.S.: If you have any more community related ideas to promote Lifetype, please drop us a line at contact__AT__lifetype.net!
We have unfortunately not solved the issues affecting our subdomains here in lifetype.net so in the meantime, please use http://www.lifetype.net/forums/ and http://www.lifetype.net/bugs/ to access our phpbb forums and our Mantis bug tracker.
This should hopefully help those of you who have got urgent support issues. We will continue now working on sorting out the problem.
Those who upgraded to Lifetype 1.2.3 and who use Internet Explorer for their browsing needs, will have probably noticed by now that the TinyMCE editor used in the "New Post" and "Edit Post" page is... gone. Unfortunately a bug slipped in the code during the 1.2.3 development cycle, the bug went unnoticed during our testing and it was part of the final release. This issue also affected Safari but not Firefox.
Those who downloaded Lifetype 1.2.3 before the June, 11th at 22:00 GMT need the following hotfix. The hotfix has been tested and verified to work:
Just unzip the file into the root folder of your Lifetype installation, it should overwrite a bunch of .js files in the js/tinymce/plugins/ folder. Just to make sure, please reset your browser's cache before testing if it works.
If you downloaded Lifetype 1.2.3 after 22:00 GMT on the 11th of June, you do not need the hotfix above. The download packages have been patched and uploaded again to Sourceforge.net with the same version number:LifeType 1.2.3 (.tar.bz2)
The ugprade packages from Lifetype 1.2.2 have also been upgraded:
We apologize for any problems this may have caused to you and your users. We will do our best to improve our pre-release testing processes from now on.
Lifetype 1.2.3 is the third maintenance release from the 1.2 branch and in addition to bringing in even more new features, it also provides fixes for a cross-site scripting vulnerability detected in summary.php as well as other stability related issues. Please read on for the download links and information about issues addressed in this release, and report any issues or bugs via our bug tracking system and the project's support forums.
