This is a maintenance release to fix reported issues and add refinement to existing features. In addition to bug fixes and performance improvements, it includes following enhancements:
Activity Stream enhancements:
The filter dropdowns now have an "Apply" button for better usability (previously you had to click outside the dropdown).
The "Expanded/Collapsed" toggles are now clearer.
Hitting back from a clicked item in any activity stream now remembers your position and loaded results.
Other enhancements and improvements:
The way dates are formatted can now be customised by language strings. For example, if you want to change the date format to "DD-MM-YYYY" that is now possible. With this change, the new default is US-style ("March 4, 1992") rather than the previous European-style ("4 March 1992").
Advertisements no longer have padding which makes them easier to position in other areas such as headers.
When comparing revisions of articles in Pages databases, a new browser-based diff tool is used which is more user-friendly and moves the computation from the server to the user's browser for greater performance.
Better indication of files pending approval in Downloads.
The version number for themes now displays in the AdminCP list.
This release does not support PHP 5.4 as it is end of life and no longer supported by PHP. If you are running PHP 5.4 do not upgrade and ask your web host to update to a supported version of PHP.
We sometimes release patches for issues that come up frequently between full releases. If you are experiencing any of the issues below on this version you can download and apply the patches using the instructions provided.
An issue has been identified with PHP 7.1 when using the Zend OPcache extension that may cause features on your site, such as member posting, not to work correctly. If you are experiencing problems posting, please disable the Zend OPcache PHP extension. The underlying issue is related to a third party library used by the Community Suite which has been updated in our upcoming 4.2 release, at which point the OPcache extension may be re-enabled.
