bbPress 2.5.10

bbPress 2.5.10 is out, and is a security release for all previous 2.x versions.

bbPress versions 2.5.10 includes additional escaping on user display names in places where names & avatars are commonly displayed together.

These changes are internal to bbPress and do not affect any third-party themes or modifications to bbPress template parts. If you are using a third-party theme or template parts, you will inherit these fixes automatically.

Check the 2.5 milestone for a comprehensive changelog of fixes.

Take a moment to update your bbPress installations to 2.5.10. If you’re using WordPress’s built-in updater, it should only take a click or two.

These fixes have also been ported over to 2.6, which we continue to run here at bbPress.org and BuddyPress.org.

bbPress 2.5.9

bbPress 2.5.9 is out, and is a security release for all previous 2.x versions.

bbPress versions 2.5.8 and earlier are susceptible to a form of cross-site-scripting, due to the way users are linked to their profiles when they are mentioned in topics and replies.

Check the 2.5 milestone for a comprehensive changelog of fixes.

Take a moment to update your bbPress installations to 2.5.9. If you’re using WordPress’s built-in updater, it should only take a click or two.

These fixes have also been ported over to 2.6, which we continue to run here at bbPress.org and BuddyPress.org.

In accordance with our WP compatibility guidelines, we’ll be dropping official support for WordPress versions 3.6, 3.7, 3.8, and 3.9 in bbPress 2.6. For more details, see #2902

bbPress dev chat summary Jan 9, 2013

We started of in the new #bbpress-dev dedicated channel for core talk albeit a little later than normal due to a schedule conflict with #wordpress-dev, more on that later.

It was a rather quiet chat this week as there were only three of us, @johnjamesjacoby, @jmdodd and myself @netweb. As ‘rez-bot’ had not yet joined #bbpress-dev there’s no irc log this week, here’s the highlights.

  • @JJJ kicked things off by punting some of the big tickets to 2.4 which leaves us with this lot for 2.3 and on schedule for a Jan 31 release.
  • @jmdodd is kicking goals with #2036 Hierarchical replies and @johnjamesjacoby is also helping out.
  • Adding support for images in topics and replies, the code is in, now to decide if default is on or off? (Leave a comment below)
  • Storing currently unused user profile meta imported from other forums for later use with potential inclusion in future versions of bbPress.

The weekly #wordpress-dev IRC chats are also now scheduled Wednesday’s @ 21:00 UTC (previously it was 20:00 UTC). What are your thoughts on times? Push it back an hour?
