Commons 1.4.31.1

I’ve just released version 1.4.31.1 of the CUNY Academic Commons. This is an emergency bugfix release.

Part of the 1.4.31 release last week was the upgrade of the WP plugin The Events Calendar from v2.0.11 to a completely rewritten v3.0. However, that updated version contained multiple bugs that completely broke important functionality on several sites hosted on the Commons. Commons 1.4.31.1 rolls the plugin back to the last known-working version for the time being.

For complete details, see the 1.4.31.1 milestone.

Commons 1.4.31

I’ve just released version 1.4.31 of the CUNY Academic Commons. 1.4.31 is the second of our monthly releases during the summer of 2013, and includes a number of fixes and small features. Highlights:

  • Security updates to WordPress and BuddyPress
  • Elegant Themes updated
  • A number of new plugins: Page Excerpt, Easy Rotator, Column Shortcodes, Next Page Buttons, Page Links Plus: Single Page, WP Post to PDF
  • New WP themes: Aggregate, Lucid
  • Fixed a bug that prevented recent groupblog posts from appearing on front page of the site
  • Improvements to reply by email functionality

For complete details, see the 1.4.31 milestone.

A reminder that, due to the summer schedule, the next maintenance release (1.4.32) is scheduled for August 11.

Summer release schedule for the CUNY Academic Commons

During the academic year, the Commons puts out maintenance releases on the 1st, 11th, and 21st of every month. This summer, when site use is decreased and when we have a number of major features in active development, we will be reducing our release rate to once per month. That means that the next release after today’s 1.4.30 will be 1.4.31, on July 11.
