LifeType 1.0.2

As a Christmas present from the development team to our beloved and loyal users, LifeType 1.0.2 has just been released and is already available from SourceForge.net. Keep reading for the installation release notes.
< !-- ADS -->

LifeType 1.0.2 is a maintenance release that fixes most, if not all, of the issues found in LifeType 1.0 and 1.0.1. Even though most of the issues are not critical (please see the list below to see if any particular issue affects your current installation), it is a recommended upgrade for all users.

Packages are available via SF.net in .zip and in .tar.gz form. Also for the first time and because this had already been requested countless times, upgrade packages from 1.0.1 only are available. These packages include only the files that were changed or added from 1.0.1 to 1.0.2, so you can use those instead of the full packages. But remember that this package will not work if upgrading from 1.0 to 1.0.2!:

LifeType 1.0.2 (ZIP)
LifeType 1.0.2 (TAR.GZ)
LifeType 1.0.1-upgrade-1.0.2 (ZIP)
LifeType 1.0.1-upgrade-1.0.2 (TAR.GZ)

For those upgrading from 1.0 or 1.0.1, there is no need to run the wizard.php installer script again, just upload the files in the 1.0.2 packages and overwrite the old versions. For those of you installing pLog for the first time, please follow the instructions available in the wiki, and for those of you upgrading from 0.3.2, follow the upgrade instructions.

LifeType 1.0.2 also includes two new features: the possibilty to configure blog to skip the dashboard altogether and jump directly to the "new post" page and the possibilty to enable a CAPTCHA image in the registration process. These features are sort of hidden in LifeType 1.0.2. They cannot be enabled via the admin interface users will need to add an extra row to the plog_config table. The reason for this is that they have been backported from LifeType 1.1 (which is already under development) and we did not want to add new strings to the locale files because locale files are frozen during the whole lifetime of a LifeType version, including minor releases.

In order to skip the dashboard, use the following SQL query:

INSERT INTO plog_config(config_key,config_value,value_type) 
VALUES ('skip_dashboard','1',1);

In order to enable the CAPTCHA mechanism for registration, run the following SQL query:

INSERT INTO plog_config(config_key,config_value,value_type) 
VALUES ('use_captcha_auth','1',1);
