Elgg 1.8.15 has been released with almost 50 bug fixes. We again had participation from a lot of developers so thank you to all of them. You can download the latest version here.
Changes in Twitter Support
Twitter is retiring their 1.0 API. To support their new API, we had to make some changes to our Twitter-related plugins. Here are the key details:
- Dropped support for the twitter widget (the plugin was called twitter).
- Upgraded the twitter_api plugin. We also added some settings and fixed some bugs.
- No longer distributing the oauth_api plugin with Elgg. The library we have been using to talk to Twitter now conflicts with it. You can still download that plugin at our github site.
Twitter is taking more control over how content from their site is displayed on other sites. This has made the twitter widget impossible to update. The twitter_api plugin should continue to work for logging in with your Twitter account and posting to Twitter.
