AjaXplorer 4.3.3 dev : AjaXplorer 5 RC3

Created on 2013/05/01
Release Type: 

Glad to announce the release of AjaXplorer 4.3.3, a final Release Candidate for AjaXplorer 5. "Final" means that although it's still in the dev channel, it's already considered very stable, thus every motivated user should definitely deploy it somewhere and play with it!! We need bug reports to be able to go to v5! Translations are needed as well, use GitHub Pull Requests to provide updated language files.

Upgrade from 4.3.1 or from 4.2.3

For those already switched to the dev branch (v4.3.1),  set directly to point 3, others, you have to first switch to "Development" update channel. Please make sure to backup your install before doing this!

  1.  Backup the application files, and make sure the running instance is writeable by the server
  2. Go to the plugins settings, and edit the "action.updater" plugin options : switch to the "Development" channel instead of "Stable". Save.
  3. Click on the "Upgrade" button in the top bar, you should see available 4.3.1 >> 4.3.3 packages.
  4. Start upgrade.
  5. You WILL probably have errors after that, you have to manually kill your session by clearing your browser cookies (and more generally your browser cache).
  6. Also clear the following server folder : data/cache/i18n/*.ser
  7. Refresh the page, you should see the new theme appear.
  8. Check that your various configurations (users/repositories, plugins, etc) are still alive, if not, please report the problem!
  9. Regenerate the data/public/.htaccess file to enable rewrite rule : to do this remove this file and also data/public/grid_t.png (if you're coming from 4.3.1) or data/public/down.png (if coming from 4.2.3), and generate directly a new public link or minisite, to make sure it is recreated by the application (will contain new RewriteRule instructions).
  10. Switching to new core configs system : to migrate from the horrid "bootstrap_plugins.php" file to a more human-friendly GUI for the basic plugins (AUTH, CONF), we introduced a new layer in the configurations management. But to avoid letting you down after upgrade, until the bootstrap_plugins.php file is there, if you try to edit the configs via the Main AjaXplorer Options node in the Settings panel, your edits will not be taken into account. Rename the php file to something else (bootstrap_plugins.php.orig), and this will allow you to configure the AUTH & CORE plugins via the "Authentification Options" and "Configuration Management" panels.
