Serendipity 2.3.5 released

About a month has passed since our last patch release – and here we are again, releasing Serendipity 2.3.5 with some fixes for new as well as longstanding bugs.

We now truncate the file extension of media items to 5 characters – more will not fit in the database anyway, and PostgreSQL really didn’t like longer extensions. Sometimes Serendipity didn’t show upgrades for your plugins even though Spartacus already had them ready; that’s no fun, is it? On the other hand you sometimes could spot some funny characters in the backend entry overview, as Serendipity really meant well and double-encoded special characters; which it doesn’t do any longer. And we stopped CK-Edit, our graphical editor, from dropping some HTML elements (

and ).

Last but not least we fixed a regression and some longstanding bugs in three bundled plugins: serendipity_plugin_history started throwing database errors when displaying archive pages after our 2.3.3 release, and extended properties from serendipity_event_entryproperties got lost in quite a lot of corner cases (and, for example, when publishing an entry from your backend dashboard) for a really long time. (The latter bug affected several other plugins, too, which were already updated via Spartacus.) Finally serendipity_plugin_comments will now work together nicely with serendipity_event_unstrip_tags (from Spartacus) which will keep HTML tags from comments for your sidebar display.

Please see the release statement on GitHub for more (technical) details.

You can download the release file and unzip it to your installation as usual, or update from within Serendipity using the Serendipity Autoupdate Plugin (serendipity_event_autoupdate).
