    Elgg 1.8.4 released

    Elgg 1.8.4 has been released with over 70 closed tickets. This release contains important security enhancements, so be sure to upgrade as soon as possible to keep your network safe.

    The first security enhancement addresses an issue with web services authorization that would allow unauthorized users access to an authorization token. Thanks to Christian Bode for the report. This is an important issue that all Elgg admins should upgrade immediately to correct.

    The second security issue is a minor issue that could expose which plugins are loaded on a site.

    In addition to security enhancements, there were a number of bugfixes and other improvements.

    The November London Elgg Meetup

    We are pleased to have a guest blog post from Laura Gill of Surevine. She coordinated the first London Elgg meetup. Here is her report of what happened for those of us who could not attend:

     

    The first (of what we hope will be many!) London Elgg Meetup took place in November, at the Silicon Roundabout in East London. The event was set up to bring together developers, contributors and users of Elgg, along with anyone else who wanted to find out more.

    The night was a great success – we had a video link from Cash Costello talking about the status of Elgg development and his upcoming book; an introduction to Elgg 1.8 from Kevin Jardine; looked at “Elgg-shaped circles” with John Atherton; had an insight into Elgg in Healthcare from Malcolm Newbury and a reminder from Alec Muffett that “a platform is for life, not just for Christmas”!

    The locally-brewed pale ale flowed, mountains of pizza were eaten… and most importantly, some great conversations were shared.

    The slides and video from the night can be found here http://www.slideshare.net/LdnElggMeet.

    A big thanks goes to Surevine for sponsoring the event, Lucila Campos and Susana Cipriota from Condiminds for invaluable tips and advice on how to arrange the night, and of course Brett Profitt and Cash Costello for helping me to make this event such a success.
