Update: WoltLab Suite 5.4.19 / WoltLab Suite 5.5 RC

  • We have just released new versions of our products:

    • WoltLab Suite 5.4.19

    Stability releases (third part of the version number, also known as “patch releases”) aim to solve existing problems in the current version. Like every stability release, they do not introduce new features. It is strongly recommended to apply these updates.

    Upgrading to WoltLab Suite 5.5


    This version introduces a new opt-in toggle to upgrade WoltLab Suite 5.4 to WoltLab Suite 5.5. The toggle can be found at the top of the package list in the admin panel and is only visible when the maintenance mode is enabled. Please keep in mind that WoltLab Suite 5.5 is still a development version at the time of writing and not suited for production environments. Please verify that you have a working backup before you attempt an upgrade. An upgrade to WoltLab Suite 5.5 at this time is AT YOUR OWN RISK.

    How to Apply Updates

    Open your Administration Control Panel and navigate to “Configuration → Packages → List Packages”. Please click on the button “Search for Updates” located in the right corner above the package list.

    Changed the title of the thread from “Update: WoltLab Suite 5.4.19 / WoltLab Suite 5.5 RC 1” to “Update: WoltLab Suite 5.4.19 / WoltLab Suite 5.5 RC”.
  • The release 5.5.0 RC 3 is now available and addresses multiple issues found in the previous version. Version 5.5.0 will be released on Wednesday, July 6th 2022.

    For developers: We had to introduce a minor API change in order to fix a bug in the PHP API of the new user menu. We do not expect this to have any impact. The change can be found at https://github.com/WoltLab/WCF/pull/4886
