  • We have just released new versions of our products:

    • WoltLab Suite 5.5.16
    • WoltLab Suite 5.4.32

    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.

    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.

    Experimental Upgrade to WoltLab Suite 6.0

    Starting with WoltLab Suite 5.5.16, an experimental upgrade to WoltLab Suite 6.0 is possible. Regardless of careful preparation and internal testing, the upgrade may still contain bugs and even the currently available version 6.0.0 RC 1 still contains minor bugs. We do not recommend running test versions in production environments and currently provide the experimental upgrade for testing purposes only.

    The experimental upgrade to WoltLab Suite 6.0 must be explicitly enabled via the package list. The required functionality is only visible when maintenance mode is active. If the system requirements are met, the experimental upgrade to WoltLab Suite 6.0 can be enabled. The procedure is explained in the official manual, please take explicit care not to omit or skip any steps: https://manual.woltlab.com/en/updates/#up…-suite-55-to-60

  • Security Notice

    We have received a report regarding the behavior of the conversation system. Whenever a participant leaves a conversation, a remark is added that lists the participants that have removed themselves. The existing safe guard to suppress those remarks for invisible participants have been found to be ineffective, therefore leaking the past presence of an invisible participant to other users in the conversation.

    The update rectifies this behavior by suppressing these remarks from being created in the first place for invisible participants. Furthermore we have adjusted the filter to retroactively suppress remarks caused by users that are not visible. Updates are available for WoltLab Suite 5.4 and 5.5 as of now, the update for WoltLab Suite 6.0 will soon ship alongside the version 6.0.0 RC 2.
