UBB.threads 7.7.0 Changelogs Introduction

NOTE: UBB.threads 7.7.0 was released January 2019.
At this time, UBB.threads version 7.7.0 is work in progress. Its current code will change several more times before being published to the Member Area on https://www.ubbcentral.com. This *WORK IN PROGRESS* code is not available for purchase or download (other than by our current group of testers). This series of progress reports is being made public to share the development progress on UBB.threads version 7.7.0. Items may be pulled from the final release or may be reworked to have a different presentation than what is depicted in this post. This is very much WORK IN PROGRESS and not by any means "final."

In an attempt to make the ongoing development status more obvious, these changelog notes are being mirrored from UBBDev.com.

Snapshots
As a general concept which many developers follow when writing complex software, is to regularly make available "Snapshot" releases to all the testers. Snapshot builds are generated right before moving forward with another large change. They allow the testers to evaluate features. and review the software as it is being developed.

As a general source control (version control) term, a snapshot version indicates a view of the source code taken at a specific time. This is not necessarily stable or ready for full use and can be changed in the future, as opposed to a release version which is stable and should be final and ready for a general release.

Snapshots are also used where if a bug gets introduced in development, we can go backwards a few snapshot steps to see where that bug started, and then easily handle it.

Snapshots created and posted for beta testers:

Changelog 2018-09-26
[NEW] WYSIWYG editor for composing HTML formatted email in the Mass Mailer
[UPDATE] Removed the 2.x backwards compatibility from the Smarty library. This means faster pages all around. It also means that if you you've customized your templates to use {php} or {include_php} functions, you'll need to move those items in to your php scripts.
[UPDATE] All php script code within the /libs directory have been cleaned up.
[FIXED] Minor html fixes throughout the templates.

Notes:
First PHP 7 build.

Changelog 2018-10-02
[NEW] PHP 7 support (test environment is php 7.0).
[UPDATE] Executing a SQL Command (Database Tools) now displays your query and improved display of the affected row count.

Notes:
This will probably be the end of the line for the 7.6.x series. It will end with "7.6.2 Release" and "7.6.3 Snapshot."

With PHP 7 + MySQLi support, UBB.threads gets bumped up to version to 7.7.0.

The next snapshot will have lots of files updated, as we are also reformatting all the script files to be consistent with a basic coding standard, and following a shared set of style rules and expectations about how the PHP code is formatted.

Changelog 2018-10-12
[UPDATE] All php script files have been reformatted to be consistent with a basic coding standard, and following a shared set of style rules and expectations about how the PHP code is formatted.

Notes:
A lot of work has gone in to this snapshot to catch whatever issues php 7.1 has presented. There were quite a few. Everything should be working as expected. More testing is required to uncover and resolved any additional issues before a public release can be made.

Changelog 2019-01-11
[NEW] CP: A forum Mailer has been added for sending out an email using your forum's email template, default forum style/theme, and forum email address. This new mailer can also be used for testing SMTP server issues directly.
[NEW] CP: Primary Settings has a new section for Advanced Mail Configuration settings. Here you can choose which Mail Transfer Agent (MTA) to use. Populate your SMTP server information with a designated server hostname, encryption type, and port. You can now also set multiple SMTP servers, and the sequence in which to use them in. From this section, you can also enter your DKIM information.
[NEW] CP: Member Editor will now display additional information of stored Member IP addresses. Using a GEO-IP lookup API, the Member's ISP and its general location is shown, and if their connection type was mobile or broadband.
[NEW] CP: Style Editor now allows styling of the Member Avatars. If you choose to use it, this property could be to set a border (solid, dashed, double, etc), the border size, and/or adjusting the border-radius for circular or just rounded corners for Member Avatars. This feature uses .avatar for members with avatars, and .avatar-none for members without avatars. When unset, the forum default avatars will not use borders, and will have a radius of 5px for all avatars.
[NEW] The Who's Online list will now mark and bold referrals that came from your previous UBB.threads Series 6 imports. This is in addition to how the Who's Online list already displays referrals from Image search engines.
[NEW] Followed/Unfollowed threads and forums are now represented with an icon that makes viewing and togging their status easier.
[NEW] Added TinyMCE version 4.9.2
[NEW] UBB.threads gets a style update with this release. The new style is simply named, UBBT77.

[UPDATE] CP: Adding a New Member uses a more strict email address format criteria. This should reduce entries with user-error typos.
[UPDATE] CP: The Database SQL Command Tool page has been updated to provide more room for displaying your saved queries. Text links have also been replaced in favor of representative font icons.
[UPDATE] CP: Moderator Manager also received some minor presentation corrections and cleanup.
[UPDATE] CP: Styles list page has been updated. Style preview link is moved next to the style name. It now also displays the last time each style was edited in human-readable format, along with the UNIX timestamp on hover-over. Text links have been replaced in favor of representative font icons.
[UPDATE] CP: Member Subscriptions which are currently active, will now be bolded and displayed in green.
[UPDATE] Updated Font Awesome library from 5.3.1 to version 5.6.3
[UPDATE] Updated PHPMailer library from 5.2.26 to version 5.2.27
[UPDATE] Cleanup of many language strings, templates, and CSS files.
[UPDATE] Updated all of the UBB.threads stock styles. They've also had their names updated for better awareness of which series of UBB.threads they were written for, and were initially intended to be used with. Beginning with the UBB.threads 7.7 Series, only the current styles will be included within the main archive.

[FIX] CP: Viewing and editing Member Subscriptions will now display the Member account's current Real Email Address. (Thanks to Morgan for reporting this bug!)
[FIX] Permissions for viewing and downloading PDF files has been fixed. (Thanks to Outdoorking for reporting this bug!)
[FIX] Attachment Manager window "centering jumps" and "wonky resizing" while adding or removing attachments has been fixed. (Thanks to Zarzal for reporting this bug!)
[FIX] Links to Gallery Topics from the Gallery forum are now Spider Friendly.
[FIX] Fixed missing ShoutChat language string in the Who's Online page.

Changelog 2019-01-18
[NEW] CP: A new "Can create portal news" forum permission has been added. This permission allows a group to create news items that will appear on the portal. This is useful when you have news content "Contributor" or "Editor" member groups.
[NEW] Members who can create portal news can now turn any topic in to a news item by selecting a News Icon as they create a new topic or edit a current topic post. Choosing a News Image will allow the topic to display on the forum's News Portal, regardless of it being within a News Forum. Note; topics with a news image will ignore user groups. Anyone will be able to read the topic post regardless of their current group permissions. Only the first post will be displayed on the forum News Portal. To read its replies or download its attachments, users must belong to a group which allows those permissions for which forum the post is located within.
[NEW] Several basic News Images are now included with UBB.threads. When creating your own News Images, the recommended size is a max-width and max-height of 100px. Regardless, your News Images should represent your forum's feel, and thus can also be styled using the .news-image CSS class. This class will style the html img tag.

[UPDATE] The News Portal has been updated with a modern entry page layout.
[UPDATE] Minor layout optimizations to the Who's Online page.

[FIX] Fixed missing IP address in email notifications of Multiple Account Logins and Lost Password Requests. (Thanks to Morgan for reporting this bug!)
[FIX] Lots of PHP 7.1, PHP 7.2, PHP 7.3 fixes. UBB.threads is now compatible with PHP 5.4 - PHP 7.3. thumbsup
