Piwigo 15.0.0beta1

We have been working hard for months to prepare the upcoming Piwigo version 15. Here is the first beta. So what's new?

A) Changes

https://ressources.piwigo.com/uploads/c/v/7/cv7jpz6hf8//2024/07/01/20240701153710-4fff0279.png
User activities were introduced in version 12. System activities are added in version 15. You can see when your Piwigo was upgraded, to which version. When a plugin was activated, when a maintenance action was performed...

Piwigo 15 changes the "add a new user" form: no more password requested, ability to immediately set status/privacy level/groups.

Piwigo 15 gest a redesigned popin to edit user. Several tabs. Simpler for plugins to interact.

Piwigo 15 will no longer send password by email. Instead the user will receive a link to set his password before first login. In case Piwigo would not be able to send the email (email is far from being 100% reliable), any administrateur can regenerate a password (re)set link, copy it and send it to the user in any reliable channel.

The yellow crown represents the main user. This was before managed by the local configuration setting "webmaster_id". It is now manageable with the user interface. Only a webmaster can be elected as main user.

You can sort the list of users by username or registration date. In ascending or descending order. With just a click.

Piwigo 15 will automatically open your web browser PDF reader, embed within the page. Works on Modus and Bootstrap Darkroom themes for now.

Redesign of the Batch Manager Unit Mode. More features, more modern design. What do you think?


Send statistics to piwigo.org, anonymously [Github] Piwigo issue #2166

At Piwigo, we don't know much about our users. We have no exact idea of how many Piwigo are installed. We have some evidences you are over 100k, but that could be far more. We don't know if you have many users or only use it for yourself. We don't know if it's for 100 photos or 100k photos. Having this kind of data would help us to take design/development decisions.

We don't want to know anything private. We don't even know the link to your Piwigo. We just want general statistics. Details of what is shared is provided in the Github issue. You can deactivate this feature, but we hope you won't, because you can see our code and trust us.

B) Improvements

New "access denied" page.


C) Start to beta test

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 :D

Upgrade (of my test site) complete! Looking forward to testing out the new release! Love the new batch manager redesign so far.

I probably won't disable this but just for my own info, this can be turned off via local files editor (local/config/config.inc.php):

Code:

$conf['send_piwigo_infos'] = false;

Right?

That's correct. This is the way to disable the statistics sent to piwigo.org

Re: Piwigo 15.0.0beta1

One question about statistics: will you increase the size of the database field for the ip address so that IPv6 addresses are not truncated any more?

Thanks

This is not related to the statistics we are talking about in the announcement.

[Github] Piwigo issue #942 has been updated to be fixed in 15.0.0beta2

Re: Piwigo 15.0.0beta1

I was referring to the statistics tab in the admin.
Same term different meaning.

Thanks for fixing this.

And I wanted to make it obvious for our readers, because piwigo.org does not memorize the IP address from which the "send_piwigo_infos" request was made. IP address can be considered as private data (even though I think it's dumb to consider the IP address as such)

Re: Piwigo 15.0.0beta1

Is IPv6-only supported in the new release? After I transitioned my server to IPv6 only last year piwigo (14.1 I believe) overall worked well except for the ability to check for updates and update itself (main app and add-on updates, the whole update system broke).

If not, could this be added for the next release? Many of us transitioned to V6-only already and more and more people will be doing that in the future

Re: Piwigo 15.0.0beta1

Hi,
First I'd like to thank You for the great Piwigo app (also for its development and support). I'm glad that I can be one of Your users with my own instance. I'd like to know what you think about:

1. Nowadays Password isn't enough:
"Authorization Token from Mobile App" -> [Github] Piwigo issue #2168
I've private photos in my Piwigo and users to whom I gave access don't know how to take care of security, so this topic is very important to me and not only for me (I think so judging by the large number of likes in a short time since the creation of the topic in github)

2. Security: In the topic: https://piwigo.org/forum/viewtopic.php?id=33710 I mentioned two plugins that complement each other (one reports warnings), I think that their features are basic enough to be included in the core or main plugin offered by default in the application.

These are just requests (not demands). I appreciate Your work and would be grateful for your time and answers to the above topics (I consider them worth considering).

Re: Piwigo 15.0.0beta1

I love the new password handling method, far more secure and a great step.  I think getting to know the userbase better is a solid idea as well and hope that does generate better development roadmaps in the future.

For instance, why would I want my image gallery to read PDF's when so many browsers handle that effortlessly now?  I'd much rather have better backup and restore functionality so I can move my gallery between hosts without having to manually re-upload all my images and manually re-add all the image metadata added to pictures over time.

I think this feature would be very useful for people who transfer photos and I don't deny its importance.

  Nevertheless, I think that the security problem I described is a critical priority. Of course, I don't want to pressure the creators of Piwigo because They have given us a lot of joy (we can use the awesome piwigo apps), but I myself am afraid for my photos gallery. I've private photos there (intimate) to which I've given access to my closest family members who don't have IT skills. As far as I could, I've passed on to them to keep the password to themselves and change it from time to time. Unfortunately, it's very difficult to maintain such regularity. I don't have security paranoia, I care about common sense. My request for security features (authorization confirmed from a trusted device eg. mobile app) is highly desired by me and people who value privacy. Especially today, when password cracking methods, social engineering are at an advanced level. It must be remembered that one negative event is bigger impact than the announcement of 100 great features.
