    It's here! We are excited to announce the release of SocialEngine PHP 4.10!! Woo Hoo! laughing

    You can read about it in our blog

    Some details:

    • Flash removal – Removed Flash and added support for multiple uploads via javascript.
    • Profile Types – Updated to allow admin to map Profile Types to Member Levels.
    • Networks – Improved privacy in order to allow members to select a network to post to or multiple networks to post to.
    • Smileys/emoticon support – Added smiley support to status post. This will allow your members to express their emotions in a visual format as seen on many social networks. Super Admin user can also add, edit and delete emoticons! Many thanks to SocialEngineSolutions for their generous contribution of these super emoticon icons!
    • User Mentions – That’s right! We’ve added user mentions so that you can tag your friends in a status post by using the “@” symbol with the user name (such as @chiefevangelist).
    • Profile, Event and Group Banners – To help spice up your Profiles, Events and Groups!
    • Hashtags – Added hashtag support and tag cloud widget to display popular tags for easier searching. This allows members to find similar content and can increase user engagement. This includes adding hashtag support for photos.
    • Added required fields asterisks -This will improve the user experience when joining your site or filling in required fields on their profiles.
    • Enhanced privacy on Member Browse – For private profiles, the profile photo in the member browse page will show a default “Private Profile” image. Added a “Block Member” button in order for members to be able to block members with private profiles.
    • Add SKU to Developer SDK – To make it easier for experts to create their awesome certified plugins!
    • Update requirements checklist to add “allow_url_fopen” and “openssl” for installs.
    • Added phrase in Settings > General Settings > Portal Page setting to add a description that the setting only controls the landing page and not individual modules such as blog, photo, etc.
    • Added Google Charts for site stats in Admin panel due to flash removal.
    • Improved “Quick Links” widget – added a setting in the widget edit screen to select whether to show the user name and photo in order to avoid duplicating those due to the “User Photo” widget that also has them.
    • Improved Notifications page – added date and time to show after each notification.

    Lots of bugs fixed. Atlas also received an update with improvements such as allowing users to change the front page layout. 

    Notes:

    • This version requires your server have a minimum PHP 5.6.31 or above.
    • The “Fancy Menu” widget has been removed from our supported core files for fresh installs. For those using it or wanting to use it, please see your favorite third party expert for customization assistance.
    • Attention third party experts: OFC library is deprecated. You need to start using Google charts in your plugins too where you may have been using flash as we’ll be removing OFC in an upcoming release.
    • Regarding private messages: Due to Zend parser, a few formatting codes may still show such as font size. This will be improved in future updates.

    You want to make sure you backup your site files and database before upgrading. Check with third party experts about any products you use, before you upgrade.

    If you are on a version below 4.9.4p1, you will need to follow the steps in this blog before upgrading and apply the patch mentioned.

    Let us know what you think. If you find bugs, please follow this guide for submitting them.

    Please keep this thread for posts about 4.10. If you want other features, please post them in our feature section

    If you have issues upgrading please post in a new thread in order to keep this thread from becoming confusing for people reading it. 

    Thank you all!!!

    We have a 4.10.1 maintenance release coming soon. We would go up to a version 5 after 4.10 (other than maintenance releases). We will post more about next major release soon.

    Anyone that already upgraded, please go download the upgrade files again. We missed one file. You can either run the upgrade again or do the following:

    Download the upgrade `.tar` file. Then, untar it on your computer and upload the `external-uploader-4.10.0.tar` file specifically. This does work to do via package manager in admin.

    Thank you for the informations, but I think I should wait more, as I use a lot of plugins from third party developer and those plugins are not yet upgraded.
