Serendipity 1.7.1 and 1.7.2 released

The latest maintenance version of Serendipity (1.7.2) has just been released. It addresses some mostly minor issues reported in 1.7. The most relevant fixes are:

  • Serendipity will switch to mysqli if PHP >= 5.5 is used (mysql is deprecated in that version)
    UPDATE 1.7.2 - This code had a bug in the 1.7.1 release, which lead to an immediate 1.7.2 release to address this. Sorry for this, but at leat 1.7.1 has only been on the air for a few hours ;)
  • Upgrade Smarty to 3.1.14
  • The outdated browsercompatibility plugin will be uninstalled
  • Properly migrate a "baseURL" option which might be set to an empty value on installations where the configuration has never been saved after the update.
  • The name of a authorgroup was empty when editing a usergroup

As usual, you can upgrade easily by uploadint the files to your server and then going to your Blog, to accept the upgrader confirmation.
