Piwigo 12.0.0beta1

Version 12 is coming. With it come new features, new design and improved speed.

A) Changes

https://piwigo.org/screenshots/piwigo-12-user-manager.png
Redesigned user manager. Selection mode, advanced filters, separated guest user.

https://piwigo.org/screenshots/piwigo-12-activity-logs.png
User activities in administration: see what was done by who and when.

https://piwigo.org/screenshots/piwigo-12-plugin-activation.gif
Redesigned plugin manager: click the switch to activate a plugin.

B) Improved speed with the lounge

New background mechanism, the “lounge“, to bufferize photos during upload. This will avoid too many user cache rebuilds. Could that be more technical? To make it more understandable: the server load will be much lower on large galleries during photo upload. When saying "large galleries" we mean 100,000 photos and more.

C) Start to beta test

Download Piwigo 12.0.0beta1

If you want to test but don't have the ability to install it, contact us.

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

Happy beta-testing :-)

Re: Piwigo 12.0.0beta1

Can I unzip over an existing install to upgrade (my test site) or is a clean install required for the first beta release?

you can do that, on a "test site". Don't do that on your "production site".

Getting a 500, so I reckon it's still not now compatible…

Re: Piwigo 12.0.0beta1

This is odd ... after unzipping over my existing test site install, it's showing the version as 11.1.0? I see PHPWG_VERSION as 12.0.0beta1 in constants.php however.

DOH! Please disregard ... I copied the wrong extracted source folder. User error. After copying the CORRECT folder I was able to see the updates in upgrade_feed.php and my test site is showing 12.0.0beta1 with the new features.

Hi

Superb work
Big difference and outstanding development
congratulations
Great browsing speed

I had a server overload problem and it's gone now
I upgrade 7 hours ago

I took a copy of the entire folder and database and then deleted all PHP files
I uploaded the new files &  re-upload of a file database.inc.php


is the
.htaccess
same as before

Code:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on

## redirect <2.4 thumbnails hotlinks to i.php
RewriteRule ^upload/(.*)/thumbnail/TN\-(.*)\.([a-z0-9]{3,4})$ i.php?/upload/$1/$2-th.$3 [L]
RewriteRule ^galleries/(.*)/thumbnail/TN\-(.*)\.([a-z0-9]{3,4})$ i.php?/galleries/$1/$2-th.$3 [L]

## redirect <2.4 high-def hotlinks to original file
RewriteRule ^upload/(.*)/pwg_high/(.*)\.([a-z0-9]{3,4})$ upload/$1/$2.$3 [L]
RewriteRule ^galleries/(.*)/pwg_high/(.*)\.([a-z0-9]{3,4})$ galleries/$1/$2.$3 [L]

## redirect <2.4 low-def hotlinks to i.php
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(www\.)?localhost/.*$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^upload/(.*)/(.*)\.([a-z0-9]{3,4})$ i.php?/upload/$1/$2-me.$3 [L]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(www\.)?localhost/.*$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^galleries(.*)/(.*)\.([a-z0-9]{3,4})$ i.php?/galleries/$1/$2-me.$3 [L]

Re: Piwigo 12.0.0beta1

Moin!

I installed the 12.0.0beta1 on my test server and I came accross two issues.

1. I tried to open any Admin page, but I got an error that the table piwigo_piwigo_lounge does not exists. I created it manually in MySQL and that allowed me to enter the Admin main page. This time I got a hint that some db uprade steps are missing. So I clicked on that link and it took me to the upgrade_feed.php. The upgrade failed because the lounge table was already present. I removed it manually and reloaded the upgrade_feed.php and the 2 upgrade steps were performed. ==> I guess that the check for upgrade should take place BEFORE the piwigo_lounge table is accessed, right?

2. I tried to use the LocalFiles Editor, but I do not have a list of plugins to use. All I can do is to display the list of plugins and filter by active, inactive and all. Do I miss something?

Best regards

Jens

I had a similar issue (lounge table not present) because I tried to get into the Admin pages before visiting upgrade_feed.php. I believe you're supposed to visit upgrade.php and upgrade_feed.php after upgrading .

So you don't see the blocks of plug-ins? I can see my LocalFilesEditor block, you just need to click on the gear (Settings) to get to the page you're looking for.
