Piwigo 2.9.0beta2

Posted on January 30th, 2017, by plg

Hello beta-testers :-)

Here comes the second beta version for Piwigo 2.9. As usual with beta version and upcoming "release candidates", this release is for test only, so don't install it on your live website.

1) Changes

To learn more about new features of Piwigo 2.9, you can read the previous announcement announcement for 2.9.0beta1.

Here is the list of changes compared to Piwigo 2.9.0beta1. First the changes for users:

* new dashboard items are now linked to appropriate administration pages
* better colors for watermark administration on dark admin theme
* page [Administration > Configuration > Options > Guest settings] is now hidden
* batch manager, delete photos by blocks
* batch manager, delete orphans by blocks
* a few more icons on batch manager
* by default history opens on current month stats

... and then more "technical" changes:

* new method pwg.images.deleteOrphans

Full list available on Github

2) Screenshots


Deleting thousands of photos at once might not work, so we have implemented a deletion by blocks.


.. and we also implemented an equivalent for "any photos", not only orphans!

3) Start to beta test

Download Piwigo 2.9.0beta2

If you can't install it but want to test it, just ask and we will happily provide a testing installation.

Please, open a new topic in the beta testing forum for each problem you may encounter.

The beta-testing continues and we still need your feedbacks :-) Beta-test installations hosted on piwigo.us/beta have already been updated.

Happy beta-testing :-)

Piwigo 2.8.6

Posted on January 27th, 2017, by plg


Today comes Piwigo 2.8.6. It fixes 2 bugs introduced in previous version 2.8.5 and a minor security issue on image upload. Read details on Piwigo 2.8.6 release notes.

Happy update!

Piwigo 2.8.4 + 2.8.5

Posted on January 2nd, 2017, by plg

Happy new year 2017!

Holiday season has been a bit disturbed by security issues discovered in the email library we use on Piwigo (PHP Mailer). This is why we've released an "emergency" release 2.8.4 on December 27th and then release 2.8.5 on January 1st 2017.

Thanks to teekay (Thomas Kuther on Github), author of the excellent Bootstrap Darkroom theme, PHP Mailer embedded in Piwigo is now in version 5.2.21. Thank you very much for your help.

2 days ago, 3 "vulnerabilities" have been published about Piwigo 2.8.3/2.8.4 on Twitter and various security focused websites. They were reported by Shinkurt on Github a few days before and he helped to fix them. I don't consider these security issues as "major" because only an administrator can exploit them. But anyway, it's good to have them fixed :-)

Happy 1-click update

Piwigo 2.9.0beta1

Posted on December 17th, 2016, by plg

Dear Piwigo enthusiast beta-testers, this message is for you!

We're excited to announce the availability of the first beta-test release for Piwigo 2.9. Following feedback and recommendations from many users, design has become a priority for this release. Piwigo 2.9 includes many cosmetic changes in administration pages. Of course it also includes various other improvements such as technical improvements, increased speed. This version 2.9.0beta1 is for test only, so don't install it on your live website.

1) Changes

Here is the list of changes compared to Piwigo 2.8. First the changes for users:

* modernized administration pages (colors, less borders, more icons)
* redesigned tag manager
* redesigned administration homepage, ie dashboard
* password generator on user creation form
* options on album deletion when dealing with photos
* download link on photo edition page, for admins
* quick link to edit ability you just created
* find duplicate photos based on checksum

... and then more "technical" changes:

* dataTables.js updated to version 1.10
* improved history engine: faster and keeps history small
* new "messages" box (blue color) in addition to infos (green), errors (red) and warnings (yellow)
* session automatic deletion more often
* faster opening for user edition box (no search in history for "last visit")
* API method pwg.session.getStatus returns list of available photo sizes
* new album can be sorted at the bottom of the list (instead of top)

Full list available on Github

2) Screenshots


Here we go with the biggest change on 2.9: design! Dark header, footer and menubar. Less borders. Brand new administration home page.


The tag manager now has a distinct selection mode, to apply actions in batch.


When deleting an album containing photos, Piwigo will now ask you what you want to do with photos associated to the album.


Piwigo 2.9 comes with a modernized Batch Manager: icons for checkboxes, specific fieldset separator (only on this page, waiting for user feedback), new colors for selected thumbnail (dark gray) and "below the cursor" (Piwigo orange) thumbnails.
