SocialEngine clients can grab the new SE PHP 4.8.0 code from the client area. Remember to make a *complete* backup of your installation before performing an upgrade. If you’ve made significant custom changes to your source code, remember that they could pose problems during the upgrade process, so enlist a developer to help you if you’re not comfortable with the process yourself.
Reminder, please submit any feature or bug requests for SE PHP to our public bug and feature request tracker.
I want to thank everyone for their continued enthusiasm for the future SocialEngine.
UPDATE: As a reminder we do have an upgrade service available for $150. You can purchase it from your customer account at
