    Elgg 1.9.1 and Elgg 1.8.20 released

    The much anticipated 1.9 release of Elgg has arrived. Read the upgrade instructions, then grab your copy and upgrade today!

    With the release of Elgg 1.9, Elgg 1.7 is no longer maintained or supported. Elgg 1.8 will continue to receive security bugfixes, but no new features will be added. It's time to upgrade those old installations and enjoy improved speed, better stability, and fewer bugs!

    We'd like the thank the numerous testers, developers, contributors, and everyone who gave feedback during the development of Elgg 1.9. All of you help make Elgg a better project. Thank you.

    Before we talk about 1.9, also note that Elgg 1.8.20 was released with the following bugfixes:

    • Embed jquery target is now searched for instead of assuming last class.
    • System cache again supports regional designators in language codes.
    • Use recipient's language in site message notifications.
    • Fix Thewire word count JS events tapping.
    • Allow custom local scripts to trigger on uncaught exceptions.

    Now read on to learn about some of the highlights of Elgg 1.9!

    Installing Elgg from GitHub? Composer Required for 1.10+

    Anyone installing Elgg straight from the repo on the 1.x or master branches will need to do a composer install immediately after git checkout in order for everything to work. This has no affect on anyone installing Elgg from the zip files distributed via the Elgg homepage.

    Community is now served via SSL and SPDY

    After recent update of community page to latest 1.9 release candidate version, followed by enabling search using SOLR integration, we're proud to announce that community is now served entirely over SSL. Such change not only improves security and privacy of the users, but also allows us to benefit from state-of-the-art HTTP optimizations such as SPDY.

    Community Search Restored!

    It's not a secret that search is a major performance hit to Elgg when you reach a certain size of database and user activity.  Some time ago we made the temporary decision to disable native elgg search on the community and rely on google.  This didn't feel right and we really wanted to get back to having our own internal search.

    It just so happened that around this time one of my clients at Arck Interactive had commissioned a custom SOLR integration for search.  The original plugin was developed by Billy Gunn, refined by me, then completely rewritten for general use and released to the community.

    Community Site Upgraded

    As part of our effort to actively use the latest codebase in production we've succeeded in upgrading the community to the 1.9 release candidate, and will be keeping it up to date with the 1.9 branch going forward.  While we initially wanted the upgrade to coincide with the release of 1.9.0-rc.1, we were set back a week with a few additional plugin updates.  With this upgrade we get a more responsive theme based on the bundled Aalborg_theme, as well as better discussions UI for new users (no longer have to figure out to join a group to posting your first discussion!)
