    The update applied today (c2e12b89) brings with it the following changes.

    New features

    • Album folder view now supports video thumbnails.
    • Removed OSFLV and BitGravity FLV/MP4 video playback solutions. We now use FlowPlayer 3.2.7 for both features. This fixes the annoying loader animation at the center of videos.
    • The transcode video feature has been moved to the top menu "Edit", and a new option to remove a transcoded video is available.
    • Video transcoding now supports original resolution. Also fixed aspect ratio bug with 4:3 videos.
    • Page title can be forced to always use site title.
    • Arabic (Morocco) was added as a content and translation language.
    • Added robots.txt so that search engines won't index uninteresting content.

    Bugfixes

    • Updated base URL to Lexin because UDIR modified their service location.
    • The speech synthesis feature is now (again) available to anonymous users.
    • Fix problem with malformed HTML entities inside quiz markup when using TinyMCE/WYSIWYG editor.
    • Fixed various JavaScript regressions by upgrading to jQuery 1.7.0.
    • Upgraded SoundManager MP3 playback library to v297a-20111030, which fixes a playback issue on Internet Explorer 9.
    • Fixed character set encoding issue when unpacking zip file when archive had non-UTF8 filenames.
    • User lists now sort according to language definition.
    • Self-registration group now shows when editing a site not the same as the site being modified.

    Enhancements

    • Substantial code cleanup in quiz editor. Should make the code more robust.
    • Upgraded to version 5.0.7 of JUpload (our multiple file uploader). This new version uses UTF-8, so filenames should now be preserved correctly, even for non-Latin character sets.
    • Request handlers no longer hit the database to figure out if they should be available to anonymous users.

  • Finally fixing the problematic IE7/8 crashes

    Posted by: Robin Smidsrød 15. Sep 2011 16:44

    Today's update (b631845) brings with it only one change, namely the bugfix for the Internet Explorer 7 and 8 crash on Windows XP and Vista.

    The problems was caused by bugs in a third party library named jQuery. Upgrading jQuery to version 1.6.4 solved the problem, according to our testing.

    If you're still having problems after this upgrade we appreciate feedback through the normal support channels.
