Vanilla 2.6 is here! It includes security fixes and requires PHP 7.0. We have therefore ALSO released Vanilla 2.5.2 with security patches if you are still on PHP 5.6 to give you additional time to upgrade.

Password hashing is different in 2.2+

LincLinc Director of DevelopmentDetroit Vanilla Staff

FYI, we updated our password hashing in 2.2 to be more secure / standard depending on what libraries are available on your server. Therefore, it's entirely possible the passwords in a 2.2 / master branch install of Vanilla may not be compatible with a 2.1 install - i.e. they would all need to be reset in a downgrade. Just a word of warning / info to the community since I just saw it come up in a support request for someone exiting cloud hosting.
