SocialEngine PHP 4.3 Released

SocialEngine - Community Software

Fresh from the code quarry! We’ve released the long overdue SE PHP 4.3 upgrade. If you’re a current SocialEngine customer, you can get your hands on it right now from the client area. If you’re not, you can grab a fresh copy here. If you are upgrading, BE SURE to make a complete backup of your site, and avoid upgrading your site while it’s live. It’s always best to copy it to a separate instance where you can deal with any upgrade issues that might arise before rolling it out publicly.
We’ve included a bunch of fixes and some new stuff in SE PHP 4.3 – here’s a consolidated list. You can also check the included changelog for complete details.

  • Photos can now be uploaded to the activity feed via mobile devices.
  • Admin’s control panel layout refactored and improved

Let us know what you guys think. Again, please be careful when upgrading and make a COMPLETE backup – and avoid upgrading on your live site.
