LifeType 1.2 packs a huge amount of new features and improvements and we hope you are as excited as we are about this release. We would also like to thank those users who joined the beta testing process and helped us improve LifeType 1.2 so that all users can enjoy a final release as stable as possible.

Continuing with the tradition established by previous releases, LifeType 1.2 is installed via wizard.php. Please take a look at the installation guide in the wiki in case you have any problems or if you need guidance through the installation process. 

For those of you upgrading from LifeType 1.1.x, please see the upgrade guide. As per the upgrade guide, it is strongly recommended to delete all files from LifeType 1.1.x except your configuration file and custom templates and then upload LifeType 1.2, just to make sure that no old files are left around. Some files that were present in LifeType 1.1.x have been deleted in LifeType 1.2.

For those of you who have been running one of the beta releases of LifeType 1.2, there is no need to run wizard.php again. Just overwrite your current version of all files with the ones available in the final LifeType 1.2 package.

Before upgrading, please take a look at your customizations and templates, and if your site depends on any of the plugins that have not been upgraded to work with LifeType 1.2 yet. Thanks for the fantastic effort of the development team and of some of our contributors, all the templates have been improved and verified to work with LifeType 1.2, but not all plugins have been ported yet (although the development team is working hard on this).

Updated templates and plugins are available at the following locations:

LifeType 1.2 plugins
LifeType 1.2 templates

For those of you with customizations, we have put together some documentation that should help you upgrading customized installations.

Please use the forums to let us know of any problems with LifeType 1.2 and our bug tracking system to report any issues.

  1. Comment Bad Behavior Version

    Which version of Bad Behavior is being used in the new release of Life Type? I've just read that there's an upgrade necessary to make it work with PHP 5.2.0
