    With slight delay in our 2-week release cycle, we're proud to announce that the fourth release candidate version of Elgg 1.9 as  availible for download.

    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!)

    Elgg 1.8.19 and 1.7.22 released

    Elgg 1.8.19 and 1.7.22 have been released with important security enhancements. All users are encouraged to upgrade immediately to keep their sites and users protected. Users of 1.7 should migrate to 1.8 ASAP as Elgg 1.7 will no longer be updated when Elgg 1.9 is released.

    The security fixes in both version improves the security of the "Remeber Me" feature and introduces measures to prevent brute-force attacks of the Remember Me cookie. This upgrade will invalidate all Remember Me cookies for admin users, so admin users may need to log in again.
