Post by: Joachim Müller on August 27, 2006, 04:09:07 pm
The Coppermine dev team announces the release of cpg1.4.9.

The new release does not contain additional new features (compared to previous versions of cpg1.4.x), but contains fixes for several bugs. All Coppermine users are strongly encouraged to upgrade their coppermine version as soon as possible. Upgrade instructions are included in the package (refer to the index file inside the docs folder).

The new package contains all language files that existed up till now:
Albanian, Basque, Brazilian Portuguese, Bulgarian, Chinese (Big5 and GB), Czech, Danish, Dutch, English (US and GB), Finnish, French, Galician, Georgian, German (informal "Du" and formal "Sie"), Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Ukrainian

The maintenance release cpg1.4.9 of course contains all previous fixes of the 1.4.x-series as well as several minor issues that have been reported on the bugs board. Please review the changelog that comes with the package for details.

Deprecated versions:
For those running 1.3.x galleries, you are strongly recommended to upgrade to 1.4.9.  The documentation clearly describes the upgrade from 1.3.x to 1.4.9 (link (, including converting any custom 1.3 themes to the improved 1.4 theme system.  Most of the popular themes have already been converted and are browseable in the demo (  Many of the mods for 1.3 have been rewritten for 1.4, with some of them being rewritten into plugins.  The new plugins system allows you to modify Coppermine without hacking the core scripts, so upgrades are very easy.

We remind you that the Coppermine 1.3 series will soon go *unsupported* and only security vulnerabilities will be addressed in this series.

Once again, please consider upgrading.  The dev team and all the supporters and contributors are working hard to make sure the latest Coppermine version is the greatest one and at the same time is completely comfortable for 1.3 users.  Test drive the current version in the demo ( and take the time to upgrade your 1.3.x gallery.

The security-related flaws that were fixed from cpg1.4.8 to cpg1.4.9 have not been reported as existing exploits "in the wild". Therefore, we won't post instructions how to manually update older releases by applying code changes here and there, as we know many users in the past thought that applying just one code modification made their version being fixed and safe. This is not the case: there are loads of fixes that go into releases (fixing both major and minor flaws). Don't try to manually patch your install. Do as suggested and apply the new release, then re-apply your mods (if you have any).

No. Try later, when is up again, or try using a different mirror. As suggested above, please don't reply to this announcement thread with your individual issues!
