Vanilla 2.0.9 Released

edited September 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 Help
Vanilla 2.0.9 has been released!
* Note - This is a bugfix release that takes care of an issue reported with v2.0.7, where some columns were missing from Gdn_UserAuthenticationProvider, causing ProxyConnect to fail. In all other respects, this version is the same as 2.0.7.

v2.0.7 Changes

  1. Fixed AJAX issues that broke functionality when RewriteUrls was disabled

  2. Updated authentication support framework to allow hooking signin/signout

  3. Provided plugins with ability to modify main menu items in smarty themes

  4. Allow .htaccess check to be skipped during installation for hosts that prevent such files

  5. Allow manual loading of plugins from outside plugin root

Troubleshooting the Vanilla 2 Installation

If you run into any issues during the installation, you may see the "Bonk" error screen. In order to get past this screen, you can remove the following line from your conf/config.php file:
$Configuration['Garden']['Errors']['MasterView'] = 'error.master.php';

This will show you a more detailed screen of information about the actual problem you've encountered. Please include this information when reporting issues (copy & paste exact errors, please).
